Please, can you help me with the following sentense:
„A thousand sheep and counting. One day at the time, Angel, I know.“ I had often said this to him, many times when he told me of his fanciful dreams. „But I van only hope. Let’s get this ruddy war over, get them dirty Krauts where they belong, and who knows, eh?“
A wounded New Zealander talks to a Greek girl during The World War Two. I don't understand that part with sheep.
Thank you. :)
Perhaps he can't get to sleep. (Counting sheep - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia )
'N and counting' is said when something is in progress but is continuing for the foresseable future: 'The number of hits we're getting is growing steadily - 50,000 and counting.'
