Keep SilverBlue in your thoughts

He's in a pretty bad way today; it's expected his grandmother will pass, if not today, very soon.

I know he loves her, so it's painful.

A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.

A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.

A successful woman is one who can find such a man.


To be happy with a man, you must understand him a lot and love him a

To be happy with a woman, you must love her a lot and not try to

more willing to die.


A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.

A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, and she does.

Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.


Old aunts used to come up to me at weddings, poking me in the ribs and cackling, telling me, "You're next." They stopped after I started doing the same thing to them at funerals.

Lotsa Humor

A young man walked into the local welfare office, marched straight up to the counter and said, "Hi, I hate drawing welfare. I would really rather find a job."

The man behind the counter replied, "Your timing is amazing. We just got a listing from a very wealthy man who wants a chauffeur/bodyguard for his nymphomaniac daughter. You'll have to drive around a big black Mercedes, and the suits, shirts, and ties are provided. Because of the long hours of this job, meals will also be provided and you will also be required to escort the young lady on her overseas holidays trips. The salary package is $ 200,000 a year."

The man said, "You're bullshitting me man!" The man behind the counter said, "Well, you started it!"


A kindergarten pupil told his teacher he'd found a cat. She asked him if it was dead or alive. "Dead." She was informed. "How do you know?" she asked her pupil. "Because I pissed in its ear and it didn't move," answered the child innocently. "You did WHAT?!?" the teacher exclaimed in surprise. "You know," explained the boy, "I leaned over and went 'Pssst!' and it didn't move.

A small boy is sent to bed by his father. Five minutes later.... "Da-ad...." "What? "I'm thirsty. Can you bring me a drink of water?" "No. You had your chance. Lights out." Five minutes later: "Da-aaaad....." "WHAT?" "I'm THIRSTY. Can I have a drink of water??" "I told you NO!" If you ask again, I'll have to spank you!!" Five >minutes later...... "Daaaa-aaaad....." "WHAT!" "When you come in to spank me, can you bring a drink of water?"

An exasperated mother, whose son was always getting into mischief, finally asked him, "How do you expect to get into Heaven?" The boy thought it over and said, "Well, I'll run in and out and in and out and keep slamming the door until St. Peter says, 'For Heaven's sake, Dylan, come in or stay out!'

One summer evening during a violent thunderstorm a mother was tucking her son into bed. She was about to turn off the light when he asked with a tremor in his voice, "Mommy, will you sleep with me tonight?" The mother smiled and gave
him a reassuring hug. "I can't dear," she said. "I have to sleep in Daddy's room." A long silence was broken at last by his shaky little voice: "The big sissy."

When I was six months pregnant with my third child, my three year old came into the room when I was just getting ready to get into the shower. She said, "Mommy, you are getting fat!" I replied, "Yes, honey, remember Mommy has a baby growing in her tummy" "I know," she replied, but what's growing in your butt?"

A little boy was doing his math homework. He said to himself, "Two plus five, that son of a bitch is seven. Three plus six, that son of a bitch is nine...." His mother heard what he was saying and gasped, "What are you doing?" The little boy answered, "I'm doing my math homework, >Mom." "And this is how your teacher taught you >to do it?" the mother asked. "Yes," he answered. Infuriated, the mother asked the teacher the next day, "What are you teaching my son in math?" >The teacher replied, "Right now, we are learning addition." The mother asked, "And are you teaching >them to say two plus two, that son of a bitch is four?" After the teacher stopped laughing, she answered, "What I taught them was, two plus two, THE SUM OF WHICH, is four.

One day the first grade teacher was reading the story of Chicken Little to her class. She came to the part of the story where Chicken Little tried to warn the farmer. She read, ".... and so Chicken Little went up to the farmer and said, "The sky is falling, the sky is falling!" The teacher paused then asked the class, "And what do you think that farmer said?" One little girl raised her hand and said, "I think he said: 'Oh Shit! A talking chicken!'" The teacher was unable
to teach for the next 10 minutes.

Some people

make me VERY VERY happy to be a bunny. Why?

Well, Silver Blue is having to deal with an idiot.

Even I, as a blue bunny, know how to look things up on the internet without flying off the handle and making threats, etc.

Things are quiet around here, which is good. One more day of peace, then everything gets stirred up again.

It's vacation time!!!!!

PoloRandy surprised me last night by letting me in on the fact that he's taking me to Cocoa Beach Florida so that I can see Cape Canaveral, and do some serious bunny shopping. It's time for retial therapy, I do believe.

I'll be gone from July 4-July 8. It should be so much fun, as long as it's not humid. Humidity plays havic on my hare hair.

Much love to you all...

Boucing Back Inside

There are curtains in the loo, curtains in the loo, can't see the shower, for there are curtains in the loo.

PoloRandy and SilverBlue finally found the curtains to use as an outter curtain for the shower (the inner lining is a different matter), so I'll have to try to get a photo to post. They're also going to repain the loo, and the dining room. Things are going to be interesting at the Shenandoah Forester.

Overheard in the Carrot Patch

Children in stores are the best birth control. Really. Screaming little banshees, they all are. God. Store managers need to do us a favor and put condoms in every aisle. Although, I might just want to hand the condoms to the parents of the unruly mongrels. ...

More photos!

As promised, here are some further pictures:

Under the mimosa tree, where PoloRandy and Sliver Blue removed piles and piles of vines, trees, etc. The old shed is scheduled to be replaced this summer.

This is all that remains of the pecan tree that Hurricane Isabel took out.

Hot on the trail of a blue bunny which I plan on attaching a dirty bomb to. This blue bunny is so cute, sweet, and loveable that I'm sure disaster will befall the Alliance of Free Blogs. Death to all things FREE!

Overheard in the Carrot Patch VI

It feels as though I have masturbated non-stop for 40 days and 40 nights (blasphemous comparison alert). Unfortunately, however, I did not, so I have all of the pain without any of the benefits.
