Anytime I mention something I want, I mean want really really badly...Poppy says, "you are always wanting something"! Maybe so, but the "somethings" I want are usually small and inexpensive. Never would I ask for a new car, diamond jewelry, a boat! These things do not appeal to me. If you want to make me happy; bring me a kitten, a puppy, a poor dog needing a home. A baby bird that has fallen from it's nest. A bunch of wild flowers picked from the side of the road. An old graniteware kettle or 50 feet of rope to build a swing!!
I don't ask to go on vacations and stay in fancy hotels. If you want to take me somewhere special; drive me to the mountains to see the colored leaves in the fall. Stop at all those little stores, the ones built on the sides of the mountain roads that have jugs of apple cider, jars of honey, and bushels of apples for sale...maybe some handmade quilts hanging outside, and inside, the smell of a wood stove burning.
This time, however, I want something really special!! Something that could cost upwards of 300.00...maybe even 500.00! What I want is a miniature donkey. :) That's right! Even a, "not so miniature" donkey would be great. A donkey that I can hug and feed and lead around the yard.

From what I read, it is best to get a jenny, or female. These are more expensive and harder to find. There are some males for sale at places like Craig's List...I feel sorry for the males. What is wrong with having a male donkey for a pet. I simply want a sweet donkey! Poppy says "IF" we get one it has to be miniature and female!! We had this big discussion last year but never got the donkey. Over time, the idea faded some...but it's back, big time, and I want a donkey!!!
Okay, as the "Food Lion" Lion says on TV, "that's just my two cents!!! Hope Poppy comes home in a good mood today, cause I'm going to do some talking!!
