Second (and last) Batch of Gotland Pics
That art is kinda creepy, huh?  All “Silence of the Lambs.”

You know, they do have a lot of lambs on Gotland.  And those lambs are pretty jumpy.  You’ll see what I mean in a minute when you get to my “field full of black sheep” pic and see how they’re looking at me.  Of course, that could have something to do with the fact that I basically threw down a hockey stop when I saw them and pulled off the road to take their picture (hey, I love black sheep, and this was the best field of them I saw the whole time).  They jumped to attention from lying down and saluted.  I don’t think they blinked until we were well out of sight.  Maybe they were wondering if I worked with their “giver of life and taker of life”, their god, the farmer, who will be coming for some of them soon. “It puts the lotion in the basket.” I know that quote applies to a different time and place in the movie, but we can mash things up like that here. Cheers!

PS: Speaking of lamb, that’s what you see us grilling (actually it was mutton).

UPDATE: Here is the first batch of Gotland pics.  Below are the rest of the ones from this batch.
