Zibbet finds of the week - Mary had a little lamb

I'm not sure what inspired me to today's post. It might have been Ponder. For a miniature black panther Ponder has an amazing and annoying ability to imitate a sheep if he wants my attention. It's a sound that is reserved for the times when I want (or need!) to sleep while he wants to eat/play/snuggle or is simply bored and doesn't know what it is he wants.
Whatever it was, I suddenly had the old nursery rhyme - which is based on an actual incident, by the way - going round and round in my head:

Mary had a little lamb,
His fleece was white as snow,
And everywhere that Mary went,
The lamb was sure to go.

He followed her to school one day,
Which was against the rule,
It made the children laugh and play
To see a lamb at school.

And so the teacher turned it out,
But still it lingered near,
And waited patiently about,
Till Mary did appear.

"Why does the lamb love Mary so?"
The eager children cry.
"Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know."
The teacher did reply.


Come on and I'll show the little herd of lambs that I found on Zibbet.

P.S. Did you know? Walt Disney made Clarence Nash the voice of Donald Duck after hearing him recite "Mary Had A Little Lamb" in a billy goat voice.
P.P.S. "Mary Had A Little Lamb" was Edison's first known voice recording in 1877.
