I wrote this post a week ago, ready to show you a hilarious video of the donkeys. And then blogspot told me it was too big. So I trimmed it in my phone (or at least I thought I did) so it was under a minute. But then my computer wouldn't let me paste it in the blog, blah blah blah. I was confident if I started anew today everything would be A-OK. Blogspot is still telling me it's too big, which I think is baloney.
Your favorite three miniature donkeys have almost lost all interest in the pasture. Yes, around this time of year it's not in the best shape, but some of it still has lush grass. However, the three princesses do not deign it worthy. And yes, their royal sensibilities are becoming a bit irritating. Thus the following situation.
Let me preface the video clip by explaining the normal day's schedule.
Breakfast is served about 8:45 am. At 1:00 (until the pasture is not fit for the beasts, usually around October)) the pasture gate is opened. Post-pasture lunch is served at 3:00. And the final dinner bell rings at dusk.
Well, recently I had the utter audacity to pass the donkey yard via the driveway at 1:00, intending to give the next door neighbor cows some carrots. The donkeys went nuts. And the irritation you hear in my voice is just that.
[at this point you have to use your imagination in your mind's eye seeing three donkeys
running madly back and forth
in the yard, braying at the top of their lungs and my voice telling them to knock it off]
So instead, let me show you a little clip of a teeny fountain on the deck.
