Winsome donkeys and endearing axolotls

I am determined to keep this blog specific; to rein in my natural desire to meander, to avoid politics, economics, my ongoing obsession with Mark Bittman's no knead bread, my growing collection of vintage porcelain false teeth or my current inability to finish a book. It's about drawing. Which is why I'm posting this picture of the most winsome crocheted donkey I've ever encountered. Have a look at his cohorts too, there's a very endearing baby Mexican axolotl.

One of my favourite characters EVER is Eeyore, the donkey off Winnie the Pooh, so this little blue-grey creature totally does it for me.
His friends are also cute, but I'm afraid that it's donkey all the way for me :o)
If I didn't already have too much junk in the house and little toys that I have no space for, I would feel very tempted to get one of these. I will try and be good though :o)

What? No, no, we want random meanderings. That's what blogs are for :D
