Inebriation or Heat Stroke?

Disclaimer: I went to Maryland Sheep and Wool this weekend, and it was hot enough that I bought an all-day mug of root beer.  I figured it called for a lousy ‘beer’ song.  




Yesterday on the first of May the bus was rather full, 
we packed our knitting and headed out to Maryland Sheep and Wool. 
The parking lot was crowded tight as avid fans streamed in, 
delighted at the free-for-all now starting to begin.  

Hey, hey, ho, ho, the bags are packing full, 
 we’re cooling down and knitting up at Maryland Sheep and Wool. 



I fondled yarn, I oogled lace, I bought a mug o’ ‘beer,’ 
I wandered through the projects show  and watched the sheepy shear. 
The weather was a touch too warm, we staggered to the shade, 
I pitied roasting artisans and toasty wares they made.

Hey, hey, ho, ho, the bags are packing full, 
we’re cooling down and knitting up at Maryland Sheep and Wool. 




The shoppers crowded through the barns despite the searing heat, 
the kilted men sprawled on the grass to rest their tired feet.
I never heard a rough remark, tho’ friendlies heard a few; 
I made some new acquaintances and old ones did renew. 

Hey, hey, ho, ho, the bags are packing full, 
we’re cooling down and knitting up at Maryland Sheep and Wool. 



Though shopping played a crucial part (there seemed a hefty lot), 
I rather liked the people there - okay, and yarn I bought. 
For me the fun is over now, though there be one more day; 
the music and the sheep-to-shawl and fiber friends at play.  

Hey, hey, ho, ho, the bags are packing full, 
we’re cooling down and knitting up at Maryland Sheep and Wool. 



As I review my findings, this sight before I’ve seen, 
for once again I’ve fallen prey to buying blue and green!  

Hey, hey, ho, ho, the bags are packing full, 
we’re cooling down and knitting up at Maryland Sheep and Wool. 


(I can't get any more photos uploaded, so my apologies to those picture-book readers out there.)
