Swiss Sheep For You
These Swiss sheep graze on the side of a little hill that we pass whenever we leave our village. At the top of the hill is the village church, with a profusely flowered graveyard around it. The sheep dutifully keep the ivy trimmed off the walls around the graveyard.

Great looking sheep, and very sociable, too, it seems. What a great place to live! God is good!

My brain wants to rewrite "The sixth sheik's sixth sheep's sick" for Swiss sheep, but isn't quite up to the challenge.

And here I thought for sure Jeffy's comment would be on the cat photos ;-)
I see that is the world's hardest tongue-twister, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. How about
"The sickly sixth sheik's sixth sickly Swiss sheep's sick" ? I thought about making the sheik Swiss too, but that didn't seem to match. I also like my mom's word "sociable" from her comment - maybe add that?
Yeah, "The sickly sixth sheik's sixth sickly sociable Swiss sheep's sick" for sure.
And Randall, my mom used to sing that song to me, and I sang it to my kids, too :-)

Looking more closely (my birthday champagne has worn off ;-)) me thinks I spy a goat amongst the sheep! The one with the horns and brown spotted coat! What say you, Randall, Jeffy and Katherine? "The sickly sixth sheik spied a sociable goat amongst the sprightly, surely not sick, Swiss sheep!" That's my contribution, always thinking positively. Mom

I don't want to seem too predictable!
I like everyone's variations.
