Farewell Donkey Wednesday

First, a donkey story from the Jamaica Gleaner.

Second.  Hey, SixApart!  Cee-Lo and I have a message for you:

Lately I've been thinking that maybe I'm over the internet.  I rarely feel the need to create a real blog post– with sentences and thoughts and stuff.  Even Tumblr (which is more like hitting ping pong balls at the internet and seeing if anybody hits one back) has lost a bit of its luster.  I have been passing through a long valley of depression and I think that may be part of it, too.  I had even started a post about how I've reached the end of the internet and had nothing more to contribute. 

Even though I was ready to pull the plug on myself, I do not feel like being euthanized by SixApart. I do not go gentle into that good night.

Until I decide where I shall go I have staked out my moniker on all the free sites. Please friend me up.

I'm really rather flummoxed. Where to move my stuff?  Where to post things?  What about my hundreds of music files?  And what about the donkeys???

I just don't know.

My input to Vox has dwindled to nothing lately but I have still enjoyed dropping by the neighborhood page and catching up on you guys and your hijinx.  I hope to see you all around the nets.

Here's some new B&S.

I guess I DO have to live like a refugee.  So here I am.

Also at:

and,  I don’t know, probably some other places…

There are a couple of other people out there on the webz who use the name sixbucks (or six bucks).  But generally if you find a sixbucks who is NOT blogging about adorable children or elves that is probably me.


Do good donkey Wednesday

Too good to miss

If you aren't too offended by the f-word and the n-word you should definitely listen to this new Cee-lo.


And, it's a sing-along.  So there's that.

Russian Donkey Recap Wednesday

After the big media kerfluffle over the parasailing donkey,
British tabloid The Sun stepped in and purchased the donkey for 70,000 roubles
(£1,500 or  $2,346.75).  She is now ensconced in the Kremlin Horse
Riding School where she receives four-star treatment.  You can see the story here.



According to The Guardian, Komsomolskaya Pravda says they got the wrong
  The donkey getting the massages
and organic carrots is Anpaka.  The donkey
who went on the sky ride is Manya, and she is still at home by the Black

I had hoped for a happy ending to this story, but instead we will have to settle for a Loretta Lynn song containing a mule analogy.

Zedonkey Wednesday

Now with extra stripey cuteness!

I have a busy day lined up but I thought you'd like to stare at this explosion of adorableness.  I know I do!

She's a 4-day old zedonk at the Chestatee Wildlife Preserve in Lumpkin County, Ga.and she's making the rounds in the internet news today. There's more at NPR.
