Make that seven years - the post below is from October 19, 2013.
This weekend, we'll again be celebrating the arrival of George and Alan at the 7MSN.
Life hasn't been the same since, and in such a good way.
Six years ago yesterday, Smooch and I drove to Colorado to adopt George and Alan and bring them home.
In honor of the occasion, I gathered the family around me to re-tell the tale of that fateful day
and how my life changed immeasurably upon the arrival of two wild little burros.
Clearly they've heard the story one too many times....
...although George and Alan did get a little emotional when I got to the part where I opened the trailer doors
and they saw the wide open spaces before them.
Alan even broke into song.
