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,

That is the strangest and saddest thing I've ever heard someone do... and living where I do I get to witness many strange things but that tops them all.
