The Girl and the Mule

Even with technical hitches I still have to blog. Word on the laptop is well, its having a turn of slightly wanting work - hit random keys when its starting and it wants to work. But for the future, the hard drive is on its last legs and my blogging will get back to normal service once I buy a new one!

How could I not post such an adorable little picture, a girl sat at her dolls house table, doll on hand, her cereal and milk before her as she offers a carrot through the window or leading him when she peddles her bike. This image taken by Allan Grant in 1950 from Life Magazine capturing a series of images documenting a young girl and her activities, leading, riding and feeding with what we can assume is her 'pet' horse/mule.


  1. These pictures are adorable! Thanks for sharing!

  2. sorry to hear about the computer troubles. LOVE the mule pics, though! LOL!

  3. Oh ! Your blog is always so interesting ! Just LOVE all your pictures, especially like your new profile pick too ! And these stills from Francis the Talking Mule are wonderful - Donald O'Connor is one of my heros - a totally under rated peformer in my humble opinion. There is nothing like his "Make em laugh' scene in Singing in the Rain, such energy, vivacity and humour in his delivery - utterly brilliant ! Have a great day, and thankyou for brightening mine ! XX

  4. Thank you everyone for your fab comments! I really did enjoy stumbling across these images, it's such a delight when you can find something so simple that make you smile and remember the good things in life!

  5. Ohhhhh, now those are markedly adorable shots, now aren't they? Delightful find, sweet dear, thank you very much for sharing! :)

    Scores of hugs,
