Lawn Donkey

Hee haw, hee haw!

This is what you photo challenge peeps like to call an oddball….

A couple weeks ago, I came home from work on a weekend morning (either Saturday or Sunday), and noticed something weird in the yard two houses down from me.  It looked like some kind of horse, but upon fetching my camera and zooming in on the strange yard beast, it turned out to be a plastic donkey figurine!  Why it was out standing guard that morning, I have no idea…. but it’s a good thing I thought to snap a picture of it right away, because it was gone that evening and the mysterious neighborhood donkey hasn’t been spotted since…

Cute little thing, though.  I’d, of course, like to steal it and turn him into Rainbow Donkey…

    Squeals with piggy excitement. I say kidnap that guy and turn him into a rainbow donkey. YES! oh YES! That would be hilarious. I hear the theme of the Mission Impossible music playing now. XOXO – Bacon

    How odd! It’s hard to imagine why someone would put it in their yard, only to remove it again. Unless the homeowners aren’t the ones who put it there. A couple of years ago, a plastic, pink-robed Joseph from a nativity scene appeared in my driveway. It was October, so it wasn’t like kids lifted it from a display that was out. I put it out by the street and it disappeared again. Very weird. The Donkey is quite cute! (I have no idea why stupid autocorrect decided to capitalize Donkey. It did it again! WTF?)

    • Maybe Joseph was looking for his donkey, and I’ll see him turn up soon. Oops, I mean Donkey. Apparently, Donkeys are special enough to warrant capitalization now…

        I’m surprised autocorrect didn’t change donkey to Dong Quai or something as equally not even close to what I was trying to say. It’s been throwing some crazy things in there lately!

    Ok, that’s odd. But, why not? It’s not annoying like those huge hot air balloon thingies that people put out for the holidays. And really, he is [was?] a cute little fellow.

    • Those holiday inflatables are so annoying…. and not just because I have to LOOK at them at work every Halloween/Christmas and HEAR the machine constantly blow air into them. I would love to have that donkey out in front of my house, but I don’t think he’d last very long before he wound up in someone else’s yard…

  6. I’m sorry he vanished so quickly. He obviously ought to have joined your shelf critters. i can easily see it. A little paint and a flower … voila!

    Hello, 911? Yes, someone stole my ass from the front lawn!!”

  9. Perhaps they read your mind and for the safety of the wee donkey, they took it back inside to save it from being turned into Rainbow Donkey?
