Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

We had been on the lam(b) for weeks. 

They're in every animal market. Sheep for sale. So after some discussion, Akaisha and I thought about what it would be like to travel through Ecuador with a sheep. After all, we do like to “get local”. We figured that we could buy one here in the market, travel for a week, then return and sell our slightly used Sheep.


After inquiring, we found that $25 bucks would get us one. At that price, we could profit if all goes well. But first we needed to work out some logistics.

How do we get Shirley the Sheep into our room? Or is there some place to “park” her? Does she get the “kid” rate? We cannot be the only one with this issue, as many people here have sheep. Then, what about the bus? Do they have “sheep racks”? We cannot walk from town to town, but we're on the moooove, so there needs to be arrangements. Ewe can imagine our dilemma.



Then what about the wool? Surely Shirley was going to have to pay her way, there was no if’s, ands or baaaas about it. The ideas for profit were swirling in our brains, and this was no wet blanket of an idea! Akaisha starts imagining the sweaters and socks she could produce. Billy keeps reminding Akaisha how great lamb tastes grilled.


Poor Shirley, her fate was undecided, even before we purchased her!


Enough said, we needed to sleep on this idea. Counting sheep in our dreams, we both were scared sheepless……

What a baaaad idea.  Perhaps, ... Larry the llama?
