A conversation with Roy, the donkey on the Big Island of Hawaii.

From Donkey's Mouth 

Subba Rao 

Eddy is a real eccentric; he abandoned his house when the utility 

company asked him to upgrade wiring in his old house and moved into a 

structure he built close to the ocean on a piece of land he owned.  The 

structure; half rickety cottage and half tent with his van providing 

additional living space. He was a substitute teacher and now a free 

spirit selling fruits from his organic farm. 

“Is that donkey yours?” asked Juggernaut. 

“Yes, a friend left the donkey with me when he left the island 

for the mainland,” replied Eddy scratching his bare chest.

“Is donkey the source of nutrients to the plants?” 

“Along with other sources you don't want to hear.” 

“No, I don't want to hear; well nice meeting you, do you mind

cricket, I heard about baseball played mostly on the mainland,” Roy 

licked his upper lips. 

“Certainly it was no insult to Roy to name a donkey after him; 

donkeys in their own right are strong and dependable animals, a great 

animal to be a pet.” Juggernaut rubbed Roy's ears. 

“Thank you;  you were kind to give me a name to celebrate a 

cricketer and talk to me; most people want to pet a dog, cat or pony, 

hardly any visitor to Eddy walks up to me to pet,” Roy raised his tail 

as a friendship gesture. 

“Well for me, a donkey is as good or even better than  a horse, 

dog or a cat to be a pet; you are friendly, stable, strong and more 

importantly very patient,” “how donkeys ended up on the Big island of
