You've all heard about stray dogs following you home after a walk... 

Well here, we do things in style - this followed us home on our dog walk today.   Rather appropriately, it is Easter Sunday ...................... :thumbs

Felicitations Peter, but you really should have another, as, like Eeyore, a single donkey tends to become sad and gloomy.

Perhaps he / she had done just that though, so left home to seek a friend and came up trumps with you guys.

Hoping you are all very happy together,

Bill

After a bit of research Alan, we did find the owner.  She came and collected it but she had a fairly long walk home.  It clearly came over the fields but I doubt she could have gone back the same way.

Normally, when there's any kind of problem,  you just ring the mayor and they take over.  Being Easter Sunday, that option wasn't available so we asked the only person we knew locally who had a donkey.  It wasn't his but he knew of another lady about 3 miles away who had one, checked with her and yes, her's had gone walkabout.

Very cute, Peter.

You would have been sad to see her go home.

You could have done a bit of Donkey drawn shunting.

Also looks like you are trying to get it near tthe Rose bushes......

Hi Peter,

For a moment we thought that you and Liz had gone green (and to these Canadian eyes it sure looks very green) and the donkey had been acquired to pull the lawnmower for you.

Glad you got it sorted. Hope you are both well

Best wishes

John

I think Liz was trying to keep it away from them Andy whilst I went to look for an owner ................... :roll:

I boobed on colour editing John - it's not actually that shade of green although it is certinly spring and quite vivid. ;-)  The first shot is probably quite accurate.


In spite of the rise in fuel costs, I still think the mower is a better option.  I don't have to feed the mower in winter ...................... :cool wink

Hope you and Doreen are both well and that you are having some decent weather.  :cheers

Never Peter, jamais even! I recall this surgeon chappy retiring from where the bride worked many years back and as a leaving pressie, they bought him a donkey (had lots of space he did), but he complained that single donkeys get lonely bythemselves, so they went and got him another one! 

Conversely to yourself, I've never knowingly been called an ass yet, but have been observed being a wonky-donkey many times!

Bill

:cheers
