It was a weekend of excellent adventure for both my donkey girls and myself.
Who could believe that creatures with such sweet faces could be capable of such mayhem?
Don't be fooled by the innocent look...
they are rebels in disguise!
I was out in the pasture cleaning up manure Sunday afternoon.
Having entered the pasture through the donkey dry lot,
I remembered that I had not relocked the chain that keeps the gate closed.
I had merely looped it over the fence.
And since it was not a windy day, I felt there was no risk of the gate blowing open.
Apparently I was wrong.
When I finished up in the front pasture, and returned into the donkey yard,
this is what I found...
Note the small brown donkey grazing just beyond the guinea house.
Here are the events that followed...

As for me...
my weekend adventure included seeing one of my favorite performers on Saturday night.
I traveled an hour and a half north of us to watch this incredibly talented gal perform.
I have talked about this performer before... she is possibly one of the most talented
women I have ever heard.
She puts a gutsy, bluesy, eclectic spin on New Orleans style jazz.
The band is amazing.
Her voice... a force of nature.
Her stage presence... entrancing.
If you are lucky enough to live near one of her venues... treat yourself!
Seriously... you won't be disappointed.
As if that show wasn't enough...
I had also gotten tickets to see John Edward, the psychic medium...
(as in messages from the other side)
For this I drove an hour and a half south on Sunday.
His talk was fascinating.
One thing that surfaced during his talk...
(and one I knew you would appreciate)
is that our furry friends also join us on the other side.
It's true... all dogs go to heaven.
Yes, it was a weekend of excellent adventure
and great fun...
and not one quickly forgotten by myself or my donkey girls.
