That's not very nice! Don't blame Dora for your typing mistakes. If you had let me type the credits, they would have been very nice.

Just so everybody knows, Donkey Hotey isn't really a donkey either!

YAY! Aventure Bunnies!

Ummm...duffle bags are not that bad...unless they have 26 mules in them.

They mostly sleep on the road but it got pretty smelly in those bags.

They're sleeping in the bags in this photo. They cried when I didn't get them all the way to Bolcano Mountain (in the background). They really wanted their picture taken there. I have to take them back.




Ummm...what kind of aventures do bunnies go on?

Hi Adventure Kitty;


Glad you made it home safely. You got to watch out for those tow truck drivers ...


Thanks for showing all the pictures and telling about the ride.


I'll see you on another adventure soon.

I think that little boy wanted to take my baby mules home.

Thank you Mr G for saving my life! It was a aventure riding with you but it would have been more of a aventure if I had to hitch my mules to the rubber cow to get it out of the desert.

Something worth pointing out here:



The 'wheelers' (the two in front of the wagon) were horses in the original 'mule team' (seen here with the skinner riding the 'nigh wheeler). Horses were better able to carry the load of the hitch but the mules were more hearty and better at pulling loads.

But "18 Mule and Two Horse Team Borax" failed in the marketing study so they just called it "20 Mule Team Borax."
