Happy (Belated) Birthday, Silver Blue!

Yes, I was so busy yesterday, I forget to post that it was Silver Blue's birthday. Of course, I did wish him a happy, happy, HOPPY birthday.

You really can't ask for a kinder, more gentle housemate.

Much Bunny Luv™,

Tough love!

An elderly Polish man lay dying in his bed. While suffering the agonies of
impending death, he suddenly smelled the aroma of his favorite pierogi
with fried onions wafting up the stairs.

He gathered his remaining strength, and lifted himself from the
bed.Gripping the railing with both hands, he crawled downstairs.
Downstairs, he leaned against the door frame, gazing into the kitchen,
where if not for death's agony, he would have thought himself already in
heaven, for there, spread out upon waxed paper on the kitchen table were
hundreds of his favorite pierogi.

Was it heaven? Or was it one final act of love from his wife of sixty
years, seeing to it that he left this world a happy man?

He threw himself towards the table, landing on his knees in a crumpled
posture. His parched lips parted, the wondrous taste of the pierogi was
already in his mouth.

With a trembling hand he reached up to the edge of the table, when
suddenly he was smacked with a wooden spoon by his wife.

"Back off!" she said. "Those are for the funeral."

Light Shows and Loose Women

Hey everybunny! Sorry, I've been busier than normal hopping around in this warm weather. Mother Nature FINALLY gave me what I've been begging for -- a decent light show!

In fact, right now, it's thundering to beat the band, and it's like someone has set up a strobe outside the windows. :-) Nothing makes me happier than a good thunderstorm!

Talk about a crazy month, however... the first week we had snow (yeah, this rabbit ran on a frozen ground...who told you so?), then we had temps in the 90s!!!! Now this. I thought it was March that was supposed to come in like a lamb and go out like a lion. Just goes to show what one blue bunny can think, right?

Anyway, getting to to the point of loose women -- Tink brought one in the house tonight! Well, not a real one, but a lady doll whose head is looser than it should be (should we say she doesn't have her head on right?) and has to go to a doll hospital. Still, I found it funny enough, to my bunny mind, to share with you all.

Tink also was complaining that I hadn't posted in two months. She fails to understand that in addition to training the bears and keeping the clover trimmed, it's been a while since the house has been swept, and therefore I've been having to do battle with another kind of bunnies -- the dust type. I'm normally not one to complain (after all, YOU try using a broom sometime without opposible thumbs and see how easy it is for YOU), but this has got me reaching for the vacuum.

Anyway, I'm going back to watching the wonderful lightning and occasional rain outside the window...now that the magic sleigh is stored somewhere under the house, I'm having to find out what I can hop on that won't get me yelled at!

Much Bunny-Luv to you all!

Light Show! Light Show!

The joy! It may be February in Virginia, but we're playing host to one AWESOME lightshow (thunderstorm with lotsa lightning).

Hey, if we can't have snow, this is the next best thing, right?

The phone rang today...

...much like it has every day at the Shenandoah Forester. No surprise there -- thanks to the spinning globe, I can normally tell if it's friend, foe, or telemarketer (whom, I guess, would end up in the foe pile).

I decided to answer an "Unavailable." Why is Dover Downs calling and leaving automated responses on answering machines and to bunnies that answer? I understand that Charles Town does the same thing. It's frustrating, because we don't gamble here. Occasionally, we'll play poker or video slots, but nothing for money. So, as you can tell, I was miffed. So miffed that I actually got online, looked up their phone number, called them up and gave them a bunny-full.

They claimed to have taken our phone number off their "auto" dialer, but I doubt if that's true.

We've had a new graff take up residence here. Seems that Hitops now has a girlfriend -- Blushed. She's pink, with red hearts instead of spots. Cute, I guess, even though you know my dislike of the color pink.

It's been a strange season ... barely cold enough to frost once or twice. While some of my relatives outside are thankful for it, it's also making their lives difficult. You see, as bunnies, we are used to a certain amount of bad weather. It's expected. It's part of what makes life what it is. This year, however, no snow. Little to no freezing weather. The grass is still growing, though the clover isn't producing as it would if we had a good frost.

Silver Blue just called and said someone was concerned that I hadn't posted recently. Trust me in saying all is well ... there's just not been too much going on.

I've been somewhat honored by Silver Blue, in that he's put photographs of me on the back cover of his autobiography, as well as giving me my own section on page 130, and additional photos on 19, 20, 22, 24, 73, 84, 144, and 180. Well, that's the way the book is paginated right now. There may be some page number changes once it comes back from the editor. I have to admit, my blue fur is quite photogenic.

I do enjoy the mail you all are sending, but some of it's quite strange, ergo:

A Little Rock woman was killed yesterday after leaping through her moving car's sunroof during an incident best described as "a mistaken rapture" by dozens of eyewitnesses.

Thirteen other people were injured after a twenty-car pile up resulted from people trying to avoid hitting the woman who was apparently convinced that the rapture was occurring when she saw twelve people floating up into the air, and then passed a man on the side of the road who she claimed was Jesus.

"She started screaming "He's back, He's back" and climbed right out of the sunroof and jumped off the roof of the car," said Everet Williams, husband of 28-year-old Georgann Williams who was pronounced dead at the scene.

"I was slowing down but she wouldn't wait till I stopped," Williams said. She thought the rapture was happening and was convinced that Jesus was gonna lift her up into the sky," he went on to say.

"This is the strangest thing I've seen since I've been on the force," said Paul Madison, first officer on the scene.

Madison questioned the man who looked like Jesus and discovered that he was dressed up as Jesus and was on his way to a toga costume party when the tarp covering the bed of his pickup truck came loose and released twelve blow up sex dolls filled with helium which floated up into the air.

Ernie Jenkins, 32, of Fort Smith, who's been told by several of his friends that he looks like Jesus, pulled over and lifted his arms into the air in frustration, and said "Come back here," just as the Williams' car passed him, and Mrs. Williams was sure that it was Jesus lifting people up into the sky as they passed by him, according to her husband, who says his wife loved Jesus more than anything else.

When asked for comments about the twelve sex dolls, Jenkins replied "This is all just too weird for me. I never expected anything like this to happen."


Until we meet again,

Hoppy Holidays!

We had our party last night.

Find more details over at Silver Blue's synopsis of the party.

Tink's seeming to hold it together, though I wish she had told me sooner. I could have gotten my minions of bears to assit me in pawing his new car, flattening his tires, pouring honey in the gas tank, etc.

We sisters have to stick together.

And together we shall be!

Thanks guys for having baby carrots on the buffet. They were quite tasty. I even stuck my paw in the chocolate fountain when no one was looking.

You've made the house look beauitful.

Thanks for keeping it all so fresh, new, and festive.

Howdy Strangers

I've been hopping all over and so therefore I've been woefully neglecting my own blog.

I managed to go over to Tink's and make a post.

She's got some photos of the funeral up here.

While she was out of town, I had to supervise the halloween makeup for everyone that went to a party that sounds like it was fun. There are photos here.

I've been enjoying quiet afternoon naps by the radiators now that Silver Blue has been nice enough to turn on the heat. I was beginning to think I was blue beyond my cute fur.

We're getting a new house mate! While details are still being ironed out, I understand there is another Giraffe that will be joining us. We're all looking forward to it. (Let's face it, I love bears, but there comes a time... LOL)
