If you've been reading my drivel for any length of time, you have noticed that I ride the cuckoo train to Feel Goodville and back to Myassisdraggin Junction about every 60 days. No big deal except it does get kinda monotomous to all concerned. And when I am mentally engaged, I am less likely to stay on the negative end of the line with or without my friend Fibro. So I want to make some changes in the way I live my life.
I wanted to do something new this year, giving back someway and started researching what was available for someone with my talents and limitations and also what I really wanted and for that matter needed to do. I need to be needed. I am not too old but just old enough to admit that with a clear conscience and no guile. I like the feeling of being wanted....so there I've said it. With all of those tick marks to check off I began my search back in November.
Because of the darling new donkey Buck at Morning Bray Farm, I became acquainted with a couple who rescued many donkeys recently. Their goal is to find homes for the donkeys and in the meantime gentle them down so they can be adopted. This a lofty goal on their part. When they rescued this last group there were 9 pregnant jennys in the herd. These jennys will be bringing new life soon.
Who would have thought that those sweet brown eyes, long fuzzy ears, whiskered muzzles and braying donkeys could hold so much excitement for two old farts like us. I'll tell you of this magic and have pictures to share very soon.
The name of the rescue is Edgewood Longears Safehouse. They are managing to feed 6 of their own donkeys, and the 8 boys in a rental lot and 9 pregnant jennys that they moved today to their own land. So if you are looking for a way to make a difference, they could use any amount you might be able to share. You can find them on Facebook or I would be glad to get you into contact with them.
