A little bit kooky & quirky. Always fun and looking on the bright side even if it gets ridiculous!

Blue Eyed (Sheik) Sheep

In the 1970's Alberta's premier was Peter Lougheed.  He was dubbed 'The Blue Eyed Sheik' which was 'a catchy title that applied not merely - indeed, not even primarily - to Mr. Lougheed but to the range of colourful and complex characters who inhabited the Alberta oil patch in the booming 1970's.' (Peter Foster Financial Post Comment)  Yes, he did have blue eyes.

This title is just a humorous play on words.
