Yup, no matter how I try to paint Racer in a sort of bad light, all you readers come to his rescue like flies to honey. I guess he is a little darling! He is our Racer Boy!

Now Lucky here .... I suppose this is what he thinks of Halloween, and most other Holidays as well! Say - he needs a feet wash. Heeee Heeee .......

Our little trick-or-treating neighbor family has come and went ... our big happenings for October are over until 2009. Now Bunny Lady is trying to think of what to eat Tuesday night while we are glued to the TV and enjoying the election news. Several interesting races locally here as well.

What are you planning???

In fact, I am quite the cupcake of a bunny. And I might add, that is not exactly a regulation pumpkin either, fella. Well Racer, we do with what we have. I planted two kinds of squash, pumpkins, and bird-house gourds all in the big backyard compost pile. That is the result.

Oh my almost forgot. Bunny.Nu has a new format and I can comment to it .. yay! And ... some pix on Sticky Buns of Saved Dave visiting the "Kang" in Memphis. W00T and B00 ...

The last gladiolus of the year ... not sure why it took so long. But is a pretty one. That is a big sedum called "Frosty Curls" by it. Nasturtiums ... yummm ... I'll take 'em!

We have this trellis along the edge of our garden beds and these nice Concord style purple grapes grow on this end. Down at the other are small green ones ... you can see a few by clicking up the picture. Unfortunately it just has always been a bit cool this year and they are not getting sweet enough ... maybe in another week or so. AND I AM NOT FIRST BECAUSE ?????
Oh gosh sorry Goldie .. it's ah, ah, yea .. it's Blogger's fault. It is unpredictible .. talk to Mr. Google.
Saved Dave has some more "Stuck Up" adventures and we will get them on the Sticky Bunns Site soon.

Good old Baxter does not quite reach all the way across from arm to arm ... but he is sure enjoying his lazy time in Bunny Lady's lap!!!
It is harvest time at the H.O.Rabbits. We have three small apple trees and here is a pretty shot of the ones just ready to pick. There are quite a few and we all will be enjoying apples as fast as we can!!! I think either the Google people all toss out funny names for the robot-testers after a few company beers or else we are seeing all the word-arrangements that did not make the cut for becoming the name of a new wonder drug!!!!

Sunday, October 26, 2008


You see ... even when I can get everything lined up nice and tidy like I like it, will Baxter and Zoey fully comply? NOOOooooooooo ....... How they do love to fun me ... Look here for gosh sakes ... I can't even get the local gopher to keep things straight. I mean this guy is just mean! I wonder if you can clicker-train a gopher?
Say .. I notice that the robot-phrases on blogger seem now to have more vowels in them so they make "words", some kind of neat, like MEETSLOVL as opposed to what I am used to seeing like XDFFMVJ. Or is this just me ... slowly going over the edge????

Saturday, October 25, 2008


OK ... You have to go to the bottom of this post to see what this is about ... And here is our normal news of the day ....

See! Goldie is part of the box caper too! Every evening we set this thing upright and tuck it under the rain shield in case it rains. Then these guys go out in the AM and by evening this is the scene again! Tipped over and way out in the pen, exposed to the elements. Go figure ....

What's your Halloween plans???? We live out away from town, so no visitors except the neighbor boy who always comes dressed up with his Dad dressed up too ... last year - Pirates. Bunny Lady makes him a nice goodie-bag and we take pictures and ooohhh and ahhhh. He always saves me a Snickers or two from his adventures!!!! This year he has a little brother to bring too ... hey! Maybe I'll get even MORE Snickers!!!!

Some years we have a big family gathering and carve "designer" pumpkins and eat and goof off a lot. Probably not this year .. everyone busy with stuff. I'll try to stick on a picture of the past year's works of art .. they are quite something!

Friday, October 24, 2008

OOO000ooooo ..... WHAT HAVE I DONE ????

NAhhh .... not to worry. Benji just lives in the box, he did not slosh his way through the contents!

What's new .... Racer did not make DR today .. you already knew that. Oh .. Gus and Betsy are back in Sweden for high adventure on Sticky Buns!

Good Night.

Half-Baked Bunn .....

This was just a hurried shot out the quickly opened deck door. But look ... she has managed to perfectly keep the sun off the big black blotches .... or maybe she is just bleaching out in the sun!

Savannah is such a great and easy going bun. She and Bunny Lady spend a lot of time on the floor by the door of her inside pen.

Did you see the 7-up commercial over on the Bunny Blab blog? Whoda thunk it?

Thanks FurryButts for the neat award .. the butterfly! Very nice.

Wednesday, October 22, 2008


Gotta check to make sure he is nice and clean and the nails are not too long, but he does not like it! Sooooo ... take a good look at the white nose and white back toes because you may not see them all in one picture again for awhile!!!!

By the way people .... I really don't think you are going to see a picture of the 10 happy hoppers here all together ... it would be mayhem or worse. Maybe via Photoshop but not in real life ...

Tuesday, October 21, 2008


Yes, the mystery bunn bumm belonged to Lucky.
Here is Chico doing his Troll-house routine!!!! He loves this little place outside. He barely fits, but it is lined with straw and hay and is underneath a big rain shield and he can see quite a bit of action.
Someone ... maybe Glenna ... suggested that I line all 10 bunnies up on the couch and read them a story ... can you imagine? ..
... "Quit pushing, Racer!" .. "I call Red Pillow!" .. "RG! Baxter is over on my part!" .. "Ew ... I don't want to sit next to her" .. "Wait, I have to go potty" .. "Aw, I had to sit on the outside last time" .. "When are treats?" .. "Where is Chico? Wait, don't start until Chico is here." .. "You aren't going to read us Bunnicula again are you?" .. "I don't want apple chips, I want banana chips" .. "ZZZZZ .." .. ...
.. "Gosh, I hope we get to do this more often!"

Monday, October 20, 2008


NOW ... GO AWAY ...
Here is a mystery bun bumm - Guesses ?????

Yes, Baxter the Mini Lop is bigger than Benji the Holland, and a Holland seems to have what you might call more "Dainty" features .. Benji has little pantaloons on his front legs! I think Minis are usually more easy going. Racer and Winston and Lucky are also Hollands, and so was Stanley.

Sunday, October 19, 2008


Kind of looks like maybe there is a mirror in there! Nope ... this is just an extremely rare situation here.

That is Baxter to your left, and then Benji on the right. Benji and Goldie were in here just for this once because Bunny Lady was cleaning their condo and it was raining hard. This area, along with the one Baxter (and Zoey, who is out of sight) are in, is under a big tarp and safe and dry!

Baxter is a Mini and Benji a Holland.

Tomorrow we will try to post one of those "'tocks" pictures for DivaKitty et. al. for some weird cat's birthday surprise!

Check out Sticky Buns ... Lucky got "stuck up" in a pretty good place for bunnies!

Saturday, October 18, 2008


Isn't this pathetic???? What if the Rabbit Police see this kind of treatment? (What if Bunny Lady sees it!!!) They should send me back to "bunny basics." Maybe I'll just quit looking over the edge here.

Kind of reminds me of Olivia Newton-John singing to John Travolta - "You better shape up!" in Grease!

I'll do better - promise.

SPUDS .....

'Em's 'Taters ..... We have five nice raised beds at the House of Rabbits and also a big old compost pile out back to grow stuff in. Almost 75% of the space goes for bunny foods. But .... we always take two of the beds and plant potatoes ... Reds in one and Yukon Golds in the other. Rotate the beds around each year.

Here are a few of the Yukons I harvested this evening. My they are good right out of the garden. All in all we will probably harvest enough to keep us going until about mid-April. We store them in boxes in our old hobby-barn and if it gets really really cold for several days (rare) we bring them in until it warms up.

Remind me to post, tomorrow, the latest picture of The Princess in her endless mission to shape me up. It will break your heart.

Thursday, October 16, 2008


Oh yes, Baxter has it right! Zoey has submitted her picture to Boogey Bunny (of WascallyWabbit) and is going to be big in advertising!!!! Gosh though, I hope SHE doesn't take a hankering for the big city lights.

Have you seen the like, really GIANT, knitted bunny on MyHouseRabbit???? These crafters are serious!

Lucky got some stick-up action and we will have that on the web site by the weekend!

Wednesday, October 15, 2008


Baxter is kind of like a cat .... ... he has found a nice sunny spot to spend an hour or so on a pretty fall afternoon.

I missed the last debate ... off at a class about the geology of our area ... let's see; ice-age glaciers, earthquakes, volcanoes, mud-flows, floods, and tsunamis ... I think that was it. Gosh and here I was worried about the price of gas!

The recipe for Death By Chocolate is over to the left under "Websites." I want full reports about how it went, and I don't want to read them in the obituaries - so go lightly!Now as to this mournful look. I peeked over the sink this early AM and here she is ... nearly to the bottom of the pellets, no oats, in need of a treat, and certainly the cleaning people are over due. Somehow she made it this way through the entire day until relief came about 5:00PM.

Next thing I know she'll be on a southbound to the Bay Area or else heading out overseas. Then what will I do ????

Fortunately a yogurt drop and a nose-rub and some pettin' and I'm back in her good graces. Thank you Princess.

Monday, October 13, 2008


See? Benji got some special treatment from our company! He is very happy and purring up a storm here!

But gosh ... Racer got two invites ... one to Scotland and one to Malaysia. People ... Racer is NOT going anywhere. He is actually quite content as well. He was just a bit tired from all the action. You can't have him. He is ours!!! Our little Racer-guy!

It's Columbus Day ... the day we bring in the wind chimes until Mother's Day. It is the windy season for that long!!! Sometimes we have some doozeys.

Sunday, October 12, 2008


Well .... that was some group ... four young 2-foots and their mama. They are nice but golly they all go back and forth past my condo all morning and evening and I don't get much holding and petting from Bunny lady on my way out to and back in from my outside "bowling alley!"

So my little neck is tired from turning back and forth to watch all the action and I'm grouchy from not enough luvin' ... I'm even too woofed to hop out this open door of my condo! I can't wait for Munday Bunday and things back to normal!!!! Yur Reporter RACER .....

OK OK .. yup it was hectic. But we did find all eight of the letterboxes we hunted for and they were all in dandy places .. we saw an oyster and clam farm and big salmon coming up the stream to spawn. There is even some Death By Chocolate left but it won't last until any of you get here so don't even bother! And .... the bunns get lots of attention tomorrow for sure.

OH! Saved Dave has more Stuck Up pix on the Sticky Buns website!! Go See...

Saturday, October 11, 2008


Oh but that Death By Chocolate was good ... we ate it at about 7:45 Saturday evening after a successful day finding four letterboxes! We are after four more on Sunday.

Savannah does notice that her dessert bowl is empty.
Here is a good example of why that is, Savannah .... and there were three more just about like him here to help!!!
Yes it was delicious, but it's good not to have that stuff often!!!

Friday, October 10, 2008


Bunnies must NOT eat chocolate. RG MUST EAT CHOCOLATE

Get out of that RG .. it's for the company coming.

OK but they better hurry up!

THUMP ! ! ! !

The "BOYZ", Lucky and Winston are quite the buddies. Pals to the end.

Letterboxing is where you hide a little weather-proof box with (at least) a rubber stamp and notebook in it. You put the clue for finding it somewhere. Searchers ("Questors") have their own rubber stamp and notebook. When ever they find a letterbox, they record the box stamp in their notebook and their stamp (and a comment) in the box notebook.

Some letterboxes are hidden in special places and have information about that place in them. Serious Letterbox Questors design and carve their own stamps, which can be real works of art! is a good site to find letterbox clues. Enter your local zip code and you'll find clues for all the letterboxes near you (that have been posted on Atlasquest .. and lots have.)

If you enter zip 98232, you'll find several boxes on the 2008 Skagit Watershed Letterbox Trail ... those are the ones we are after this weekend!

Let us know if you go Letterboxing and how you do!

Wednesday, October 8, 2008


Maxine .... our outside cat. Max stands door duty sometimes - well, lays door duty!

Max is pretty old and has her ups and downs, especially when we have these back and forth weather changes that happen so much this time of year. Sort of like me.

We're in for several days of nice weather, although cool. Some relatives are coming and we are going Letterboxing! Anybody a Letterboxer out there?

Tuesday, October 7, 2008


... and she has her eye "on" the debate.

Pretty much another yawner for bunnies but a bit more exciting for us humans.

What would happen if both guys panicked about the financial crises and quit the race ???

Monday, October 6, 2008


Chico gets his evening salad on the bottom floor ... he almost falls right out the door with excitement when it comes!

Quite a few nasturtium leaves and a nasturtium flower in there. They grow well here, and will do so until the first frost, which could be well into November ....

Sunday, October 5, 2008


For your information, in the past week there have been an average of 15 visitors per day to the Sticky Buns site. Each visitor looks at 6 pages - on average. Visitors from USA, UK, Sweden, Malaysia, Netherlands, and Canada.

I wonder if any of our Canadian bunnies will get stuck up anywhere?

What is your BIG fall outing going to be?????

Hey .. come on .. maybe I got Polar Bear and Sled Dog blood in my lines .... I'm certainly pretty enough.

Don't go there Zoey.


New updates to Sticky Buns! More Freckles, Savannah, and a new guy ... SavedDave!

Have a good weekend ... Go Mariners! ... oh, wait ... uuhhhh .....

Thursday, October 2, 2008


First, you see Benji and Goldie have differing views! Such it is here at the House of Rabbits!

Second, we invited a friend from down the street to watch with us, and Bunny lady had a grand pasta and salad and french bread dinner with brownies for dessert! Very nice :<) Without telegraphing any political leaning one way or the other, let us say we all were surprised at how well the lady from "main street" did, considering the predictions and stories leading up to it. Me and the friend were both about bored to tears by about 45 minutes though .... plus I kept thinking Biden was the Republican and Pahlin was the Democrat!

The Bunns were thumbs down universally. Not a darn thing in it for them.

I have more Sticky Buns photos of Freckles and of Saved Dave ... I'll get those up Friday evening.

PS - you guys keep up this incessant drum beating for Baxter to take over the blog and you just might be sorry for getting your wish ....

Wednesday, October 1, 2008


This big boy is Baxter, the Mini-lop, and he hit the nail on the head. I have had too many late nights and not enough free time and .... well ... I got nuthin' ... Haven't read any blogs for two days so I don't even know if maybe there are some lurking Sticky Buns out there.

So .. fire me. (I really didn't think you would.)

Hope to get back on track on Thursday, although got to watch the little debate and then kick that around with Bunny Lady tomorrow night.

Wish me well and so forth ....
