The donkeys polish the dancing floor

The donkeys polish
Originally uploaded by FranSb.
As it is only a month left before the All Hallows celebration the donkeys have offered to polish the big dance platform. Each donkey pulls a heavy bag of chaff over the waxed floor. Riders are needed for additional weight. The village boys are expected to pay one apple each for the ride and some of our employers are also helping. Note Madam driving hers at the back. Any other helpers are also expected to pay an apple. Our careful donkeys wear moccasins so not to damage the fine wood. I apologize for the quality of the photo as my best camera fell into the water as we approached the quay. The Secretary

I just knew you and Baba were working out something at that pow wow meeting with the donkeys. There is work to be done and Halloween and Baba's All Soul Day Celebrations will be quite spectacular.

From the Secretary: The donkeys are practicing their song for the big day but we are all waiting for the return of the Boss Donkey who has been in Delphi on an organization special. I rather suspect that, although the Delphi donkeys have not yet mastered our union's special skills that a number of them will be surprising their riders in being able to tell them quite a bit when the Big Employer's spies ar not listening. The Sec.
