The Craigslist sink was located about 30 minutes away, near the town of Creston. It was a perfect day for a drive and I brought my camera.

After we bought the sink, Donna and I stood by the truck waiting for The Man and her husband to return from their solar show-and-tell. She was talking about the Karakul sheep she had raised for their specialty fiber. She was explaining that due to their coarse fiber their wool was popular for making Persian rugs. Then all of a sudden I blurted out, "Wow, what's that?".
That was a Golden Pheasant. Just one of many amazing birds and animals Donna housed on their 17-acre property:
Several outside aviaries contained her beautiful unique birds.

A friendly Clydesdale (with a prosthetic right eye) named Natalie and her two donkey friends came to greet us. Donna had gotten them from a rescue organization. At the time she was only looking for one donkey. . . .

Donna's Angora goats went into hiding when I took out my camera. They had already been shorn of their mohair fleece and may have felt shy by their nakedness.
Funny, you just never know what you'll find when you set out to buy a sink.
