For as long as I can remember, the corner of Keyes Rd. and Geer Rd. has been occupied by burros. Specifically, they were rescued burros. Mr. Prouty cared for them for decades, finding them homes and bringing new ones in. Then Mr. Prouty passed on. The family sold the property and one day they were . . . gone.
I found out sometime later that the remaining burros found homes just down the road so one of these days I'll turn right on Keyes and Geer and see if I can spot where they are. In the meanwhile, I'll enjoy watching the changes as they progress. The land is being plowed and prepared for planting and rumor has it there is a produce stand to be built. I hope we will see it sometime this summer.
