A load of alfalfa

There is nothing to read here.  The donkeys have been ordered to stop blogging and have a period of prayer and reflection.

Here’s Father Finigan on The Pitfalls of Censoring Catholic Bloggers http://the-hermeneutic-of-continuity.blogspot.co.uk/2014/03/clerical-blogging-is-there-change-in.html


About Gareth Thomas

After a mixed career as an aircraft technician, London fringe theatre playwright, Franciscan friar, and secondary school teacher, I find myself looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca. I like to listen to BBC Radio 4 and the wind in the pine trees. I am writing a comedy about a school in Benidorm. My favourite film of all time is "Jean de Florette". If I had my time again I would not have spent the early 1970s working for Special Branch.

    Ah! Donkeys at prayer! And so un-hesychastic at it! Love those critters. The Lord and his Mother rode on one of them. Or several of them. Munch munch munch. One of ours likes to nibble my barn coat. It is not as tasty as a carrot or an apple….but she still tries.

  2. I was pondering the thought of ordering Ambrogio to do anything at all….but I think perhaps he could manage prayer and reflection after all.

  3. Maybe they are using their period of prayer and reflection to look for orthodoxy in the haystack?
    They really are beautiful animals!

    Thanks, Goat. They are indeed very beautiful animals. All four of them also have very distinct characters and one day – maybe over Easter when I have time and Rosemary is here – I shall write something about each of them. Or they can write it themselves. In fact, the blog as written by the donks is the next phase I want to go into with this blog.
