PERHAPS I'LL SEE EWE.
I see a story in circulation about my native land. The Golden Shears World Championship, which, if you haven't guessed, is an international sheep-shearing competition is to be held in Ireland this year, from May 22nd-26th. The event will be in Gorey (County Wexford). The organizers are somewhat short of ewes at present. They need about 1000 more. The word ewe is pronounced yoe in Ireland and yow in Scotland, a fact to remember if you're talking to natives of either country.
