Ah Benji, Benji!

No - you will be sooooo busy hob-knobing with all the new bunns. It's a library book so you can't even just chew on it either. You'll be fine.

The Princess is about done packing and labeling her carry-on for the big 7-BUNNY-7 adventure. Looks like a good cardboard box and plenty of flotation. In-flight food and entertainment will be provided, so she can travel light.

All you bunns better check 7-BUNNY-7 because the passenger list has been posted and if you are missing you MUST let us know. Boarding is tomorrow!

It has been warm here by our standards and all bunns are enjoying fans and laying low .....

Racer is such a dandy guy. He is a small Holland Lop .. maybe the little one of a litter. His front feet are so dainty and his nose and toes in back match! He lives right in the line of much house traffic and loves to keep track of all the coming and going.

But wait ... is that one of those "things" like Chico had .. growing out behind his ear ????

Bax is home, dry, fed, and happy ......... and shy! And Zoey intends to keep the intruders away. Zoey is a Peach.

Wednesday, June 25, 2008


All I can say is, as sure as my name is Lucky, Baxter is really the Lucky one. I have gone over and over the calculations and there is no way a 7-Bunny-7 can do what Baxter made it do.

It plumb eludes me, about like the jitterbug does Rabbit's Guy.

The title says it all ... doesn't it Savannah!

Bunny Lady says it is just the way the patch of sun-light is shining on Chico's back fur. And now that she explained it ... that is just what it looks like.

Will there be nice litter-boxes on the 7-bunny-7 ?????

(By the way. I have no idea what that is "growing" out of Chico's back. Some reflection from the lens? A message from bunny wave lengths? It is not on the real Chico and I do not remember seeing it when I first downloaded the picture. Hmmmmmmm ....)

Great outside day today for the bunnies ... we are finally having the kind of weather we expect. A long wait. The bunns are getting clover heads in their evening salads ... that should last until October ... good eats for the next few months.

Princess chilling out on the deck .. taken through a glass door. All you hot bunnies do your best to keep cool!

I sense that as summer rolls in the blogging world slows down .... vacations, too much hot in many places, other fun stuff to do ... good plan. We might slow down a bit here for a couple months too .. we'll see. So far too hot is not a problem!

You check out those links that Tamara left in comments to the previous post. There already is a Bunny Airlines and we will have to discuss a merger with 7-bunny-7!

Nextly welcome Reno Rabbits to the Blog Role. Those fellows live close by us and are friends and have had quite a time since their rescue. We get a big kick out of their Rabbi-tat! I could live in there nicely!

Finally ... for those who did not know ... that was Baxter (the mini-lop) and Zoey (the lion-head) in the last post! And .... check in on 7-Bunny-7 .. you bunns will not want to miss the boarding day!!!!

SUN !!!!!!

OK ... the big adventure is getting started ... we actually have our plane ... "Really Furrther". The members of the merry band, and our zany antics, will be randomly chronicled on a special blog .....

Thursday, June 19, 2008


Isn't this a great notion? A 6 step Quick Install Guide! We have one of these under the sink water heaters ... came with the house ... a great invention. But the tank got too old and began to leak enough to make a mess under there! So the trusty "do-it-yourself, I-can-do-this" guy found that you pretty much needed to buy the whole kit just to replace the tank. My plan still was to just replace the tank, all the plumbing and spout were fine. I mean how hard can it be? Just three hoses to hook onto the new tank, and I got the old tank out and the three hoses were right there.
Unfortunately this is reality under there! There are two sinks, not one, and a dishwasher connection and that post in the middle of the cabinet! Every hose fit fine though - gosh, even the new tank fit right on the old wall mounts! But then .... anyway it is 8 hours later, it is in, but there might be a slight drip still. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh.......... BUT! I remember that Ken Kesey wrote One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and also Sometimes a Great Notion. He was sort of a Pacific Northwest icon too. He and the Merry Pranksters drove the Electric Kool-aid Acid Test bus and the bus was called Further ... get it? FUR ther!

Soooo .. I have revisited Glenna's idea for the short hop airline ... our heroes will use a 7-bunny-7 ... and it will be called Really Furrther and painted like a great Orca Whale in honor of the NW! I have also gone down the blog ranks and found at least 66 bunnies (and two honorary cats and an honorary dog or two) to be part of the Merry Band. If I knew all the bunnies that LauraSinNJ has ( I could only find mention of Boomer, Peeper, and Sunshine) there would no doubt be more. So far there are no duplicate names except for Belle. Belle1 and Belle2.

It's going to take a bit more work to put this together ... stay tuned and ready!!!

Tuesday, June 17, 2008


The late peonys are blooming. The white ones have these deep red flecks in them .. very striking. The Princess is disguising herself as a garden statue - when I leave she plans to hot-foot it for the chard patch ...

I guess I am still waiting for better Cuckoo-nest ideas. The ones you turned in were OK, but they did not have enough breadth of weirdness ... keep thinking. I will hate to invent this on my own ... heee heee ........

Monday, June 16, 2008


There is Winston after the running and running in the cleaned digs yesterday! Most of the other guys looked about the same!

I look at maybe three or four dozen blogs, world wide, that all have something to do with pet bunnies ... more and more it strikes me that this whole merry band is just missing Jack Nicholson (One Flew Over the ...) to pull us together and do something significant and totally misunderstood by normal society!

If he did, what would it be ????

Sunday, June 15, 2008


The kids are scattered with families of their own, but youngest daughter came to Father's Day and look what she brought! Bunny Lady fixed it up pretty and it will be around awhile!

We spent most of our day with heads down in the teeny,dirty engine room of a very old, teeny sailboat that daughter is hoping to make perfect! After three years we have been aground twice, out of fuel once, and had two good days of sailing! I've quit counting the dollars she has spent. Today we were unable to figure out why fuel does not get to the engine! Sailing is so peaceful - too bad we could not leave the dock ....

The bunns had quite a time with their clean, restocked facilities ... after lots and lots of endless back and forth checking of everything twice, most of them just finally crashed! I think they survived the upsetting OK ... hope so.

Saturday, June 14, 2008


What EVER do they think they are doing? That deck had so many purrfectly good smells and properly aged STUFF on it. All those doots and little piles of special hay .... all gone. Joint smells like a hospital now ..... I'm telling ..... Hey! Savannah, Princess, Racer .... guess what ...

Aw put a sock in it Winnie. The deck was GREEN. It was SLIPPERY. It was marginally sanitary. It needed a good wash down. Tomorrow we will put back every last doo dad and lots of fresh hay piles and dry litter in the boxes. You guys will love it ... But you'll never show it ... will you?

Those pots had the nicest basil .. we ate about 3 leaves and then the cold and damp weather got it. Coldest first 1/3 of June in Pacific NW history of weather records. But note the shadows .. that is from SUN!!!!!

Friday, June 13, 2008


I read over on Nips-n-Cuddles that Buggins was studying Japanese. Maybe she can verify that The Princess's new facility here is sort of Wabi Sabi - or not.

You will note that The Princess believes it should be here, rather than against the wall, as in the previous post. She and I have been over this about 5 times, and I am slowly coming to understand. Although she clearly wanted the old box against the wall. Hmmmmm ....

Had to try to borrow a laptop computer for a guy for the summer. So far the best I've gotten is an old Toshiba with Windows 95 ... ouch! A little green button in the middle of the key board moves the cursor. Maybe something else will too, but I haven't found out what, and there's no manual. How did people manage in the 20th century?????

Thursday, June 12, 2008


Hey - things have changed .. Thump Thump, Harumpff, Harumpff .... why was I not consulted first?????

Yes, The Princess got a new box ... quite classy too! The other one seemed small and once she was in there, we could not get her out. This one has a top that folds back for ready bunny accessing!!!

And, it is has caused much consternation! Chewing, chinning, moving, looking askance, and all those type bunny actions that go on when things change! When she came out into the big room to have an afternoon romp, she did not want to go back into her area ... she saw that box and was pretty concerned! It took some fancy footwork and coaxing and herding by the two of us to get her in! Then she pouted and scowled and would not eat her fresh oats until she was sure we were fully aware of her difficult and sensitive situation! I think she is almost back to accepting again ... hope so!

It is quiet and sad here in the House of Rabbits today. A big empty place, Stanley was special. Nobody with much to say, so we'll just get going again later. It was great to hear nice words from so many. Especially from our special gal, Tara, who has Boomer the Chihuahua, aka "Chief Hua Hua!" You've met them here before and will some more!

Good night and Thank You all again.

STANLEY ... JUNE 2005 - JUNE 10, 2008

Bunny Lady's precious Stanley died early this morning. :<(

Stanley came to us as a baby and had respiratory problems from his earliest days. He did well until the past week, when he struggled a great deal, even though he had adequate doses of pain relief medication.

It is so sad to not have Stanley here anymore, but he is so much more peaceful looking in death than he was in his past few days, so in that way we are much relieved. We will miss the special guy.

Rest In Peace Stanley.

Monday, June 9, 2008



Uh ... I hate to break the news Goldie ... that box is not going to Hawaii.

We are no longer complaining about the lousy, cold, dreary, gray, wet, snow-in-the-mountains weather we are having for the past months. Most of the rest of you have it awful! Hang on there .. it should get cooler and calmer and dryer sometime soon.

Just how hot and/or wet is it????? (If it is just super-d-dooper, you might as well tell us that too - we need to know that SOMEBODY has it nice.)

Sunday, June 8, 2008


I have no idea why Goldy and Benji thought it was better through that wire! But obviously they had a mission!

For the curious and sadistic, I added a link under "Websites" for the famous Bivalve Bash Mud Run. Look soon, it won't stay there long.

Reading about several of you switching to a new computer this weekend took me way back down memory lane! An early job I had was programming an on-line system that ran on two IBM 360 model 50's with the OS/MFT operating system. Each machine had 256kbytes of memory and shared 8 2314 disks .. each disk was like a big stack of dinner plates and held about 30megabytes of data. The whole works filled a large room! I got an assignment to plan the move from one version of OS/MFT to another. It took a month to figure out all the steps needed and write up the procedures to do it. Then it took about 7 of us all weekend to pull it off!

My trusty 2000 Dell with Windows Me has 128mbytes of memory and 40gbytes of disk storage! What's one of these lightweight iMac portables got in there now????

THE RACER'S FEET ............

Thumpety Thump Thump, Thumpety Thump Thump ..... my toes match my nose!!!! I am SO cute!

Must admit, you are cute Racer Guy. Fat headed as well.

Went over to Guemes Island this morning for the famous 11th annual Dog Island 10K foot race. (never heard of it eh?) Been recovering slowly from almost a year of injuries so my time was not to be mentioned, but I DID finish and got a third in age group (old). But, nobody older than me beat me!!!! Just you wait until the equally famous Bivalve Bash Mud Run.

Friday, June 6, 2008


I'll make me a nice cozy pile of carpet here and maybe Bunny Lady will turn on the heat!

Golly - just about everybody saw something different in Baxter's eye!

Thursday, June 5, 2008



Baxter always seems to me to know WAY more than I can even imagine.

... COMES THE BUNN-BUNN KNOWN AS VINSTON! THE BOLD LITTLE BLACK HAS A "V" ON HIS BACK, A "V" THAT STANDS FOR VINSTON .... tra la la !! "V"inston has this very strange hair pattern on his back .. it is not falling out, nor is it an injury. But most of the time it is a perfect "V"! Kind of off colored and whatever ... very strange. But then Winnie is a rabbit ....

Winston is a small Holland Lop and kind of feisty! This evening I happened to look out to the deck and just then he popped straight up about 15 inches, did a 180 turn in mid-air, and dashed to the fresh hay pile! A regular little jumping bean. A happy one I expect.

Lotsa rain recently here ... cool ... grayish ... blackberry weather! Not the berries, the vines!!! Blackberries should be the Western Washington State plant and the Slug the Animal! The Eastern 2/3 of the state are high, some desert, quite dry, and warm in the summer. Lots of fruit and wheat and onions where the Columbia River can be used to irrigate. Those people tan. We rust. We are famous for losing more sunglasses than just about the whole rest of the world! We love it! June is Orca Month. The oldest Orca whale in our area is Granny - 80 plus years old! Nothing but pollution preys on an Orca ... they are a beautiful sight.

Now that we've seen how much every body likes big back bunny feet! But the clogs are too big, still. Surprising they have no nip marks! Hmmmmmm ... let me see here .... how long will it take to .....

Chill out Princess .. you already nipped the cord to the fan that keeps it cool on hot days. Go hop in your pen and eat the oats. Or just be cute or something ....

OK ... they are big round bales of fresh mown grass. Shrink wrapped. (Not nearly as cool as most of the "guesses!") If they are just the right moisture content, then they cure well for future feeding to the cattle and dairy cows around here. Many fields full of them, bales and cows .. they (bales) get loaded on big trucks and hauled off and stacked up until winter time. I think the next cutting .. maybe in 6 weeks or so .. is baled in conventional rectangular bales with no wrap. Better pay attention to see.

I added many blogs to the list at the left. Should have done it sooner ... just didn't get to it. All have a rabbit or two (or more) in them somewhere! If you have never seen the blog from the worm farmer from Detroit (Homesteading in a Condo), now's the time. There is a video done for a TV station ... amazing what can be done in a small condo and deck in Detroit!

We get some great farm-land views from our yard, being a bit up on the hill-side. These huge white lumps sprang up the other day! Might be an Eskimo camp? Baxter is thinking some form of bunny goodies. Giant marshmallows? Albino mushrooms. Well aimed huge ice-balls? Ideas ....

Can you figure? I post a beautiful picture of some of my finest Spring gardening results and get 4 comments - one extremely late. But, post pictures of some dumb bunny's stupid looking huge back feet and the whole world jumps in and ooohhs and ahhhs! Maybe you want to see my septic tank????

See ya tomorrow ... Harumpfffffffff

Sunday, June 1, 2008


Rabbits back feet are so HUGE compared to the rest of them. Soft and furry on the bottom .. look like big, goofy, comic slippers! Stanley is a small Holland Lop, but his hind feet and toenails are plenty full-grown. The front paws are so dainty.

Here we go, June - be warm in the Pac. NW ......
