This year I'm not even going to attempt to fool the blog reader with some lame April Fool's Day joke like I did last year, when I said that we had bought a fixer ranch! The only little joke I played today was on the foreman- I called him when he was at the office to say that our neighbor, the one with Barney the big sized donkey, had come walking up our driveway with a miniature donkey named Hank and said he needed a home!! The foreman didn't even hesitate and said "no," - but I knew if he had seen the imaginary Hank, he would have said yes. At any rate, I had him BRIEFLY fooled- and then I was actually relieved to realize that I still have just TWO donkeys! Two is plenty, and we don't want to upset the great friendship that Paco and Weegie have by adding a third. Plus, if any more animals come to reside at The Lazy Vegan, they will have to be rescue animals. Today I was involved in a dog rescue of sorts...there is an older dog that sometimes gets loose on the busy road toward Forestville. Today traffic was completely backed up and I couldn't figure out why- until I saw this poor dog weaving in and out of the cars! I immediately pulled the Beetle over and got my emergency dog leash out of the glove compartment. I called him over (I think it was a he) and he barked at me, but did edge toward me- and then suddenly a neighbor came running out and told me that Casey was the dog's name- so between the two of us, we managed to lure Casey off the busy road- which is really a highway- and got him home up a dirt driveway. During all of this one of my vegan boots came untied, and I was wearing a dress today, which with the vegan boots was already a dweebish outift- and then to have the long laces flopping around was even dweebier. But I got back into my Beetle and a woman stopped her car to let me back into traffic, and I felt good knowing I had helped the dog despite looking like a dweeb doing so! I suggest everyone get a cheap dog leash to keep in the glove compartment. It can really come in handy for a lot of things! Also today I wormed the donkeys and the foreman helped, which made it go a lot faster and easier!
Weegie loved listening to the foreman play the harmonica today!
Here Weegie has a try at it!
Hanging out on the hillside with my donks- one of my favorite things to do!
I took the silly photo above with the self-timer on the camera!
A donkey makes a great back rest.

The Beetle, Mower Man and two donkeys!
Very playful (and very strong) donkeys...I really keep my distance now when they are running around!
Sometimes I get the feeling that Paco is actually posing for the camera!
