Newest Friend, Part Two

I returned to visit my curious little friend to find him moving slowly. There is another little burro there who came to me quickly while my friend approached more carefully.I gave the healthier burro with the dark face some sugar cubes but could not get my little friend to come close enough to take one and when I tossed one to him he showed no interest. He was not moving well and I wondered if the dark burro didn’t rule this roost..

When it came time for me to leave I told my little friend I would return soon with some apples or carrots and told him to be well. This odd little burro has a real cute face.

Hard to let this day pass without expressing my continuing admiration for those who answered the call after Pearl Harbor.

As a Navy vet myself, 1968-1972, I have grown to understand the incredible bravery and resolve that went into fighting that war and saving the world from a fate unimaginable.

The heroes that braved those years fighting for a cause so just, experienced conditions that were beyond comprehension. My respect knows no bounds. If you see any person in uniform, thank them. If you meet a WWll veteran, give them a hug. They are vanishing quickly.
