Donkey Time

Have you ever met a donkey?  I really hadn't until last Sunday when I met a lovely little donkey named Forrest.  My friend Shea bought Forrest as a gift for her dad.  How thoughtful:)

Forrest is friendly.

Forrest is kind.

Forrest is curious.

Forrest needs help removing strange objects from his forehead.
(check out my sister's bump, whoa)

If I had a little plot of land, I think I might get my own donkey.

Fun fact of the day:  There is actually a specific area of the brain known as the bilateral vomitation center. It notes when our tummy is upset and makes the final decision whether to barf or not to barf.

Quotes From Dad

My dad is super cool.  Everyone likes him.  He is funny, and goofy, and kind and giving.  He's had a mustache for about 40 years and likes to wear a yellow hoodie with surf boards on it that says "Santa Monica", and sometimes he tucks in his sweaters.  He tells a lot of jokes, and says some pretty hilarious stuff.  Here are some examples:

Me - "Dad, what are you getting mom for Christmas?"
Dad- "candy and tater chips"

Mom - "Mike, what was the name of the special guest at the bluegrass Christmas show we went to at the Ryman last night?"
Dad -  "Mick Jagger"


He's a winner!

Fun face of the day:   The space between your pointer finger and thumb is called the "purlicue."

Fun fact of the day:    Horseradish is a member of the mustard family and can count cauliflower, kale and brussels sprouts among its cousins.
