      And I was just going to write to you…was just chatting with your friend Davy D about your ‘back side of the night’…Charles invited me to join in. Anyway, I was re reading a poem from a couple months ago I could rework to fit it, but wondered if mostly pre written is okay?

      I am happy to say that he was most definitely a donkey. I love donkeys. He was beautiful, and wise and sweet and patient. And obviously photogenic.

      haha thanks so much for visiting this spot Davy!
