It's been a terrible week


Nothing but work. And when I thought I could pass off a few pictures from the stables -- as placeholders -- all the animals acted as though they were in the witness protection program.



The only agreeable subject I could find was an ass.

  8. It may have been a terrible week but you have an ass madly in love with you. That's gotta count for something.

    I hope next week is better.

  10. There's a lot of asses in our neck of the woods this week. Bishop is having their annual Mule Days and it's the biggest collection of asses this side of Washington DC.

  12. How asinine to turn away from the fame that is the Altadena Hiker Blog!

    Stick a camera in Ranger's face and see a truly unhappy dog, much like your 1st photo I have to say.

  13. Sometimes an ass isn't just an ass.

  14. Susan, it's easy to get an ass to fall in love with you. What a woman needs is a stallion.

  15. Bummer it's been a bad week. But thanks for the fun animal photos, and an excuse to search my Shakespeare app for the word ass, which appears 94 times. "Come, you virtuous ass, you bashful fool, must you be blushing? Wherefore blush you now?" (Henry IV).

  19. Those are usually the ones who seek out the camera, wouldn't you agree? In any event, that is one fine ass and I've looked at a lot of them over the years - you know, through the blogs I visit. What?! Don't look at me that way. And, put that camera down this instant!!

  20. What's the difference between a donkey, a mule and an ass?

  21. Hah Carolynn, and you can join the witness protection program along w/Lobo and the rest.

    I'm sure there's a joke in there somewhere, P.

  22. Found it here

    But it takes a while to load (and sheesh! it's red) so I'll copy and paste:
    DONKEY – Nickname for members of the ass family (Equus asinus)
    JACK, JACKASS, Jack Ass – The male of the ass family
    JENNET or JENNY – Female of the ass family
    BURRO – Small members of the ass family from Mexican and Spanish stock, native to the Southwest, but not widespread
    MAMMOTH JACK/JENNET – Large members (measuring 14 hands or more) of the ass family used for draft mule production
    MULE – A cross between a male ass (jack) and a female horse (mare)
    HINNY – A cross between a male horse (stallion) and a female donkey

  23. Even asses aren't always asses! It's a cute one, that's for sure!

  24. I've never paid much attention to donkeys, but that face is pretty appealing.

  25. Perhaps this is Nick Bottom, who has had "a most rare vision."

    Your post and the comments are simply excellent! :-)
