Pink or blue?

Last week when George and Alan were trying to decide between paper or plastic
reader Jean asked, "Can burros distinguish colour?" Interesting question. Let's find out, shall we?

When given the choice of blue or pink, Alan went straight for the blue.

There was no doubt in George's mind – he wanted the pink.

Me: How about it, boys? Were your able to distinguish the colors you selected? Or were your choices totally random?
Alan: What difference does it make as long as we look suave and debonair?

Me: I think we've got to work on the styling. I'm not liking the way we tied your cravat. 

Alan: Oops. Wardrobe malfunction.

Alan: Lucy is back there mocking me, isn't she?
Me: She's just jealous because she hasn't had her turn to pick out clothes.

Lucy: Pshaw. I would never wear anything off the rack.


  1. Your boys can wear anything and look positively adorable!

    Don't they all need matching 7MSN hats for a calendar shot?

  2. Too funny! I love these guys!

  3. Can those 2 get any more cute?!? ;-)

  4. I suspect this burro-dressing-up thing is leading up to the unveiling of costumes for Halloween. We'll be watching...

  5. Oh my, what lovely commentary! Again, I really should quit reading your blog until Eric lets me have donkeys. :)

    Lucy, you're a girl after my own heart !

  7. My daughter always dressed up her dogs and cat when she was young - and as an adult even dressed up her anole (which I kept calling a chameleon!). But you beat all by dressing up your burros!!! Love it!

  8. Poor Lucy, having to hang out with blue collar boys - literally.

  9. Love it that George chose the pink. The colors they chose are most flattering. Fun to see.

  10. You guys just start my day out right. Of course they know which color best suits! Was there any doubt?

  11. I laugh so hard at some of your posts! I always have a smile while reading your posts.

    thank you!

  12. Those boys are so cute. Lucy is so dignified. How does one go about acquiring a 7MSN hat?

  13. I loved this! Love the third picture especially.
