FSO–Weird stuff

Our topic this week is weird stuff in our town.   I couldn’t find anything relating to the supernatural as suggested by Collins English Dictionary.  And the trouble, for me, about strange or bizarre is what I think is odd may be perfectly normal for someone else (and often is) and vice versa.  

But I found a few things that fit the bill for me.  Pink sheep not only look weird, I think it is downright wrong to do that to them but you can’t argue that they catch the eye of passersby at Sheepworld.

I happened across a gathering of vintage cars last weekend and this one caught my eye:

And this one.  Maybe not weird to you, but I’ve certainly never seen a motor like this up close before and the owner didn’t object to me saying it was weird.   In fact he seemed quite amused (laughing up his sleeve perhaps?)

  4. Maybe they dipped the sheep in some kind of, uh, sheep dip...you know,a medicinal kind of thing? That would have caught my eye, too! And what, indeed is that hanging off of the yellow car? A wombat?

  12. Pink sheep, yikes!!! I hope it is not the gang of spray painting sheep at strike again. A coule of years ago, some rascals went to One Tree Hill and sprayed the sheep red.

    Your vintage cars must have assembled in Kumeu on Friday for this weekend. My Taiwanese friends were driving rouund about here when they first noticed so many vintage cars.

    Do you like car shows or cubs? My colleage's husband is one and they travel the whole of NZ.A lot of fun.

  15. Oh I remember going past the coloured sheep. That's definitely weird, and is it just me, or do they look pretty pissed off about the whole thing?
