RACER, RACING, RAIN ......

Yes indeed, that was the nose of Racer, our little boy who lives right by the main foot traffic route and sees all! He is quite a shy little guy in his condo, but in the morning when Bunny Lady comes out and opens the door he scoots right over and they have some real cozy cheek to cheek time. What a fine start to the day.

This is the month of the great Tulip Festival, but it is yet so cold and gray ... the buds in the fields are still closed so the tourists go shopping! Today was the annual Tulip Run .. a 5-mile and a 2-mile race by one of the local airports. Rabbit's Guy and a younger family member ran the 5-miler, along with about 500 others, and did just fine ... boy did they have good food after - plus - the first water-stop had Starbucks!!!! Never saw that on a race before! It was cold and windy and a real treat!!!! One of us scored a 3rd place age group medal :<{) and the other a bunch of tulips!!!!

Gosh I don't know why it didn't strike me before but Racer reminds me of my Luther!

Congrats to the racers in the Tulip run! Racer is adorable, Anya was also a shy rabbit but liked cosy cheek to cheek time too!

Racer sure knows when it is important to be shy and when it is better to be social!

Congrats on the race to both the Achiever of Tulips and the Bearer of the Age Medal! What fun!
