A love for lambs In like a lion and out like a lamb ... Have I told you how much I adore lambs? Just outside Funkstown on a small farm, just in the last few weeks, there has been an influx of baby lambs. They are fabulous to watch, and I take seeing them as a sure sign of the spring that is quickly on its way. I am convincing myself, as much as trying to assure you, that the recent snow and just downright icky weather is going to be short-lived. Play ball!
