But we couldnt say goodbye just yet.
Danni had big news for us when we got to her house. Okay, well, I mean, she kinda told me about it a little before we arrived, but just a little tho. And I didnt know for sure that it was gonna happen till we got to her place.
Is that a donkey you see? It most certainly is. Danni made arrangements so that everyone could go and see Sarah and Holly and Pistol. Can you believe it? Isnt that the BEST news ever?
J got in a little Pistol butt scratchin.
And J seemed to do just fine with the ladies, too.
He seems a bit surprised by this.
Altho, it appears that maybe Sarah stole his heart this time.
And the feeling seems to be mutual.
Danni had to get her donkey "fix" as well! She couldnt get out of the van quite fast enough to get to those donks. It was very sweet.
A soft touch for Pistol.
Going in for the kiss.
Okay, going in for a BIGGER kiss. Kisses cant be too big, ya know?
Can you believe this is the view from the barn? I know, right?
We all had great fun visiting with the donks. It made my heart melt to see Pistol again. To give him great big butt scratches and to know that hes with his girls once again. Eating sweet hay and crunchy carrots. *Sigh*
We made our way back to the farm. Now it really was time to say good bye. We gave out big hugs and got all loaded up in the van. Headcount...5...suitcases...4...snacks? Yes.
On our way to the airport we had to get gas, of course. I had to remind S that he was not able to pump his own gas. I mean, we are in Oregon, remember?
Look. Theres the guy whos gonna pump our gas for us. Does he look kinda angry to you? Nahhh....hes just wondering why this crazy lady is taking pictures of him.
Well, naturally, I had to get out and introduce myself. And take another picture. Can you see me in there? No? Thats because I am too short to make it in the picture. I was trying to get him and I in the picture....but he was pretty darn tall....so, meet "Mr Nice Man who allowed me to take his picture while pumping our gas."
So, thank you Miss Danni and Mr Jim for a fantastic time. I am so happy that it all worked out the way it did. And that we all got to hang out. And that we laughed like crazy. And that you didnt make me eat crab. And that we got to make cookies. And that we got to see the donks. And that I got to collect eggs again. And that I got to see Oregon rain. And that I now know that there are different kinds of beavers.
AND that we didnt drink ALL of your milk.
