The neighborhood ass

He (she?) was not part of a birthday party petting zoo. Our neighbor, about ten doors down, actually owns a donkey. I met the beast this evening while taking my daily walk. He was as startled to see me as I was him.

He lives at this house:

With this view:
Not a bad donkey life.

You are really going to miss that view when you move to Austin!

We might be able to hook you up with a donkey, though.

Hey, my ex lives in Austin. He is a perfect ass.

Ok, just the fact that you live near that view is enough to make me green with envy. I know I've told you about the back porch filled with rednecks that is a mere 30 feet away from my back door. At least they're really nice rednecks

Decorina, Austin is full of asses. He's in the right place.

If there is a prize for blog titles, this one gets my vote.

Did your neighbor happen to explain WHY they have a donkey? Is it considered a pet?

I have no idea. I've never met the family who lives there.

I'm not sure what the zoning rules are around here. About 30 years ago, this was considered a rural area and our hill was occupied by a couple of horse farms. One woman a few doors down has lived up here for more than 50 years. She keeps chickens and one very loud rooster. The other side of the hill butts up to a sheep farm, so the occasional bleet is not uncommon.
