The acquisition of a pet donkey in 2006 led to the start of a new subcategory in my collection -- "Donkey Thimbles and Sewing Tools."
My PowerPoint program on the subject has been presented at several meetings of thimble collectors via the Thimbles On Wheelsgroup. The program, entitled "Donkey Thimbles and Sewing Tools - Mary’s Astoundingly Asinine* Thimble Program (*Adjective: asinine as•i•nine - complacently or inanely foolish)" is a humerous look at my collection of donkey items, i.e. my "other herd" and has been well received.
