random postcard #3...

dearest reader,
there are many reasons why i love donkeys.
reason #1: they have an old soul.
reason #2: they have a lovely little cross design along their backs.
reason #3: they have splendid ears.
reason #4: when i pay them a compliment about their splendid ears,
they in return compliment me on my clog sandals.
hope Mr Sun is shining down on you and all is well

Dearest Tif

Thank you so much for the gorgeous post cards. And bless your woolen mittens (sorry if it's too early in the year) for your reasons for visiting the Donkey Sanctuary and for having a loving heart about these darling creatures. They have a bit of a rough ol' time where I live (in Greece) but I love them too.
Now I patiently wait until you reopen your Etsy shop - it's my birthday this month and I've got a wish up my sleeve.

Donkeys do certainly rock! Their soft muzzles, dainty feet and the odd hee-haw, what's not to love!

I love donkeys because of the way they nibble your clothes with their lips. Lovely blog, I look forward to reading more.

Sharon said...

you are entirely correct about donkeys and their ears...they are soft and lovely and very willing to be rubbed....did you know i have a mini donkey called jubel? he is the best. and he does have an old soul....and he loves cookies. ah tif, you are a wise woman.

I love donkeys, too. They always look like they are really cheeky and I'm wondering what is it that they are thinking of us all.

Oh I love donkeys too! I am now planning a trip to the Devon Donkey Sanctuary! They always look so sad and sweet :)

Fliss said...

I love donkeys too! At our local show -next to Devon in not so sunny Cornwall- we saw two donkeys with the most gorgeous eyes. The donkey is my fav shape for potential homemade christmas decorations 2011!

That donkey is so darn cute I could cry! (They also have a super soft spot behind their ears where I like to cuddle them :-))

dottie angel said...

denaz! i cannot believe it... oh how i wish your feet had not got stuck. i hope myself and my daughter were behaving ourselves when you spied us!
it would have been grand to say "hello" :)

bonnie, highlight the word with your handy dandy mouse then click on the link icon in your blog post window, a little window will pop up and in it you place the URL of your photo or indeed another web page. press save and voila! should work.

oh i am feeling all warm inside now thinking of our shared concerns and kindness for donkeys. they do seem to have such a rough deal in life, lovely to see them being cared for properly :)

Hdub said...

dottie angel said...

Hi Dottie. I sent this post to my sister who reminded me of my favorite childrens book about a donkey whose ears got cold and his little mistress knitted him some pointed ear covers!
Sending you lots of gratitude and joy.
