One-Trick Donkey

Jul

I love my little donkey.

Pocahontas is soooo sweet.


I want to get her a straw hat with ribbons and teach her to do tricks. But every time I go down to see her, she just starts bellowing. I mean, bellowing. Like a dingo just stole her baby, it’s that pathetic.

And then I feel so sorry for her, I rush to grab her a licorice treat. I give her the treat and love on her and tell her never mind, we won’t do any work today. I can teach her tricks another day.

Oh.

I already taught her a trick, didn’t I? Or maybe she taught me one…..

OHMYGOD, SHE’S BEEN TALKING TO CLOVER, HASN’T SHE?!

    You really are the one who has been trained, Suzanne! Clover taught you to bring cookies, Annabelle conned you into letting her live on the porch, and now Pocahontas has taught you to bring her licorice on command. And let’s not forget the stray cats, and the dogs, and all the other critters! :sheepjump:

    She is just precious! Love her eyes. My goats have talked me into bringing them John Deere gummies when I come to the barn….don’t tell my boys. They keep wondering why the gummies are disappearing.

    Our animals do seem to train us rather quickly but we love them in spite of or maybe because of it. I know I do! :snoopy: :snuggle:

    “Like a dingo just stole her baby”

    is that like the movie “A cry in the dark” with Meryl Streep? Or like Elaine on Seinfeld?

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
