Gary & Andrew

Here’s a cute one for Flashback Friday…going all the way back to the fall of 1965. Yes, my husband’s family had a donkey on the farm at that time, a gift from the children’s grandparents. The donkey was not stupid, apparently it would frequently take the rider to an area with trees with particularly low branches, just low enough to knock off whomever was atop!

As is the case with so many of these old photos, one has to wonder what’s the “rest of the story”. Why is my husband at the “wrong” end of the donkey, and why is Cousin Andrew riding high in style? Will JoAnn be able to pedal away in time? Are those guns loaded, Gary? I also get the feeling that something unpleasant was about to happen, something that might quickly wipe that squinty smile from my future husband’s face (and possible dirty those clean clothes)! The possible captions to this one are endless!
