Sheep Swag

My Scottish quest for ovine bric-a-brac was not in vain:

This good-looking guy is Lord Oliver Wise. I found him at the Hogwarts Castle gift shop. He is described as a "loyal and faithful doorstop". But he will never be a doorstop in my home -- he is far too aristocratic and handsome for that. The Japanese tourists behind me in line at the gift shop were very jealous. But then they got distracted by a discussion about whether to buy a facsimile of Hermione's wand or Harry's.

  1. They ARE very fine sheep.
    But do tell, what DOES pass for a doorstop in your home? May I suggest anything written by Bryce Courtenay.
