Well those delightful burros who just got Pet of the Week honors have broken out of their corral twice today. The Award must have given them a more elevated taste for freedom. The last time they almost made it up here into the garden…they did get a few cornstalks out of the lower veggie garden. Lolita and Barbarella are the main culprits. I have Dilly Jo tied to a tree now and I may have to do that for the rest when Richard ARRIVES….which is momentarily. A new stable gate is in order first thing Monday morning…dullness is not part of the scenario here on our lil' corner of the Universe…This is Life!!! This all reminds me of when I was 14 or 15 when I used to sneak the car out late at night from the garage….there was such mysterious freedom…something so new and absolutely seductive…almost like sex. These burros still long for that magic. There is a lesson in this……..and it's for me.
