#141 – Heehaw! Heehaw!

Photo taken: September 16, 2017

Nothing compels us to whip out our picture taking machines quite like oddballs.  So when I came home from work one morning and there was a cute, but definitely odd little donkey lawn ornament sitting in one of my neighbor’s yards, I had to capture it for perpetuity.  And it’s a good thing I did since it was gone that evening and never appeared again.  I have no idea what the story behind him is, but I’d have gladly taken that stubborn ass home and made him a part of Shelf Critter Theatre… once I’d made a unicorn out of him, that is.

  1. I bet the donkey disappeared to the same place like my flamingo… one night and it was gone… but I still have his seasonal clothes and I hope once he comes back… maybe there is a worldwide bad-taste police on patrol at night, who seized our trashures …

    I wonder where you purchase a lawn donkey? No reason, idle curiosity. Nice photo.

    • I would guess there is someplace out there that you could buy one individually (I mean, I have a skunk holding a rain gauge, after all). But I’m thinking that donkey may have possibly been part of a large nativity set…

    He’s run off to frolic in the open fields…

    It’s so cute but it looks kind of lost and lonely there all by itself!

  5. I used to see those a lot back in when I was a kid. They looked like they were made of concrete and often had a little wagon for annual flowers. Those thing weighed a ton so if it got pinched, I hope the thief got a hernia for his efforts.

  6. ody N biskit….itza sad state oh a fairz no one can set stuff out side with out it bee in ruined ore stolen…..naybor ladee cross de street had a wishin well taken …her gran kidz made it for her….
    😦

    • That is sad. We had plenty of things stolen out of our yard back in my old hood. The only thing I’ve lost here has been a air conditioner though. I don’t think the donkey was stolen… just left out for a day and then back to wherever he’d been hiding.

  7. I really WANT a miniature donkey — or mini horse. Garry feels we have enough traffic without a real hoofed creature galloping around the dining room table, but he’s such a spoil sport.

    • That would be guaranteed to add a lot of fun to your house. A miniature donkey might even be able to keep Duke in line. I’m not sure if he’d fit through your doggie door, though…

    Glad you got a picture of the cute little donkey. Best to take a photo when you see something cool, because if you don’t, it’ll be gone.

  9. It’s always possible that the donkey was placed there by someone who was making a STATEMENT about the occupants of the house????????
