D is for.......................Donkey


Thursday's here again so I'm off to Jenny Matlock's place for Alphabe-Thursday and a look at what this week's letter D stands for.

Around here D stands for my neighbours Donkey, who has a field to wander in but more often than not can be found standing by the fence watching the cars and the one lone pedestrian, me with Mr Ben, going by.
He's very sociable and always comes over to have a chat and tells me the latest gossip around the hameau.
See you at Jenny's.
Still with me??

Looks like Spring isn't as ready to arrive as we thought at the beginning of the week. I took these pix just a few minutes ago. It has been snowing steadily all night long and shows no sign of stopping yet. My small, bijou (?) attic room where I sit and blog and scrap is freezing cold, the velux window in the roof is covered by inches of snow, there's hardly any light coming in from outside, so I think I'll take my laptop into the bedroom and have a day in p.j.'s

  1. Donkey looks friendly. Does he have a purpose in life on a farm or something?

    What a lot of snow you have, I believe it has been quite bad in East Sussex and Kent but we just had a little fluttering and now have sunshine, but it is bitterly cold out!!!

    Keep warm, Jackie.

  2. He looks aDorable! I can't imagine living next door to him. I'd probably be over there with carrots and apples for him.

    Great D post! Donkey is Different!

  5. Good Morning Maggie!

    I love the Donkey. It's something about those long ears!! In East TN, you can find them in almost all the pastures. It is my understanding that a Donkey will fight coyotes which are notorious for killing the beef cattle and dairy cows--which are the income producers here. Pretty smart and cost effective!!

  9. Maggie, how nice to be able to see the animals and 'talk' with them like that. I am sure I would become quite attached.

    Your snow is beautiful, it seems to have been a very snowy winter everywhere, except here.

    Have a good day in your pj's.

  10. Oh, I love this donkey! He's very handsome and looks friendly. But I will say, if I looked out the window and saw all that snow, I'd be curled up in my jammies too! Kathy

  23. Lovely pictures Maggie, DOnkey looks very friendly - he clearly craves company and delights in your walking past! We're fed up with the snow here in the East of England - I can't ever remember such a sustained period of snow and cold!
    Thanks for your comments - I'd forgotten about the silver shoes, but yes - I had them too, always craved gold though! Thanks for stopping by the Ramblings!
