Composite Sketch?

When we put "the guys" into Betty this Christmas season,
 
it really got me thinking how the village is just a reflection of our lives...
 
 
 
 
Get my a$$ to work even if I have a bum leg or other ailment,
 
 
 
 
(or more nicely put, take care of your pet donkey).
 
 
 
 
Remember when you show disdain for the pig
 
(look at her face),
 
 
 
 
that you still enjoy bacon.
 
 
 
 
Sometimes the kids don't know if they're coming or going either,
 
 
 
 
  so give them a break, too.
 
(Love this bossy Gretchen the milkmaid, here).
 
 
 
 
Yes, I AM starting to show my age,
 
and I'm working on dealing with it.
 
 
 
 
Avoid animals with red eyes at all costs.
 
 
 
 
Be prepared to deal with the folk who are always gonna ask questions.
 
 
 
 
And lastly, when seen curbside picking,
 
hold your head high and CARRY ON, GIRL!!

How envious am I of this collection!?! I know - so wrong to be envious during this season, but now really these are beauties - every one of them! I have a few cows and a donkey and a headless shepherd. Came over from the comment left on my post on torn ribbons. I am your latest follower.
