Saturday encore ~ Don't blame me. George started it.

It was early Tuesday evening. I was in the corral doing chores 
and George and Alan were trying to convince me to play with them.

Alan: Come on, mom. Pick up a cone. This is fun.

George put his cone on top of Alan's back.

Alan: Take that off. What do you think I am, a detour?

Me: Now I get it! All you had to do was tell me the rules and I'll play the game.

George: You misunderstood. This is not what we had in mind.

Alan: See what you started, you jackass?

George: Hey! Get back here! I'm not going to play this game alone with her.
She cheats.

Me: So the object is to see how many cones you can put on top of the other player, right?

Lucy: I hate to perpetuate stereotypes, but you look like a total ass.

George: Why, yes, I suppose I do.
And so do you, now that you mention it.

Lucy: She's going to pay for this.

Lucy: Treats. Now. Or we're never playing with you again.


  1. How did you get the three of them to stand with their back hooves in "first position"?

  2. I don't understand the cone game, but it was nice of them all to play by your rules this time. Lucy looks serious about the treats.

  3. What a wonderful way to start the weekend! The Saturday Encores NEVER fail!

  4. Just another installment of playing donkey games at 7MSN. You are the luckiest lady in your corner of the world. And so are your wonderful beasties. Much love shared here at your place. OmaLinda

  5. As a town dweller, I am always a little jelly when I see somebody having fun with their livestock especially donkeys, they are tooo cute!



  6. The story line posts are so much fun, even when you do get "the ears" as punishment afterward.

  7. I L.O.V.E. all the stories & photos of your boys...& girls!!

  8. Lucy looks like she's about to fly.
