I feel for you, I think I love you...

You may remember my story a few posts ago about 'Wonkey Donkey' getting into all sorts of trouble and very nearly being chewed to pieces by my Mum and Dad's Dog!   I managed to repair him and he is now as good as new but, oh so sad looking.   I thought maybe he needed more companionship, as Donkeys are very socialable creatures...Well, guess what, I managed to track down Wonkey's long lost brother...
 'One eyed Wonkey'!   


He has his two ears intact and a little wisp of fluff on his tail but unfortunately, he lost his eye way back in the past, which he won't talk about, to anyone.
When  wound up his ears go up and down and his tail spins.   He is very clever.
 'One eyed Wonkey' and 'Wonkey Donkey' have a lot of lost time to make up and so many stories to tell
each other...
 that 'Mechanical Mike' and 'Dixie Donkey'  feel a little left out.
Thanks for stopping by. x

It must have been love at first (one-eyed) sight! How sweet. I'm sure they'll all get up to all sorts of fun together.

Gorgeous photos of those much loved toys.

I love these. I recently found an embroidered scarf which has 2 donkey portraits lovingly sewn into it. I immediately thought of you!
I enjoy reading your blog.
