Look at Lucky here ... nails in there somewhere. This boy looks like he is wearing big ol' Bunny Slippers!
Here is Winston. His nails are pretty visible, but he is wiggly and feisty. He finally wound up wrapped in a towel with just one foot out at a time!

Benji likes to be held and he begins to teeth-purr as soon as you get him. He is a compact Holland lop and a dandy bunn! Benji is Goldie's Guy!
I don't follow sports a great deal, but if you live in Washington State, your two big college football teams plus your professional football team have a combined record, this year, of 4 wins and 31 losses!

A field lasts maybe 4 or 5 years, then it is completely torn out, the poles and wires salvaged, and some other crop is planted ... maybe strawberries or blackberries or a hay field for cows. All organic. New raspberry fields are built pretty much by hand labor ... hundreds of poles driven into the ground, wire and irrigation tubing strung, and new shoots planted! Big, yummy business!

Goldie is an American Fuzzy Lop, and the only longish haired bunn we have. Her coat has been doing quite nicely now for some time. She is a real snuggler and would sit on a lap and purr away for a long time. We usually get about 10 -15 minutes a day, just before the evening oats!

Here is the carrot recipe ... but it is dangerous and not for the diet conscious ..
Put about 1/2 cup of sugar in a sauce pan. Add about 1 1/2 cups sliced carrots. Just cover with cold water. Let sit for a couple hours. Steam lightly. Drain and serve hot!
If you can't read it you are safe!!!!!

This is probably one of Benji's worst photos ever. I better make it up to him ...
I am working on getting the carrot recipe from BL and into print here.

About those carrots ... it turns out that BL decided they were actually quite fit for human consumption so we have had steamed carrots the past two nights and she has a method of fixing them ... yummmmmm. I think there is a bit of sugar in the water. Now don't get all anxious though and call in the bunny-police. She saved plenty for them.

I notice more blog comments during the week than on the weekends. Not just here, but with most blogs. You don't suppose people do their commenting at work do you ????
By the way .. on Nov 11 it rained like mad and blew and most all the leaves are down ... just like we predicted! Now, about the stock market ....

Anybody out there a Tom Robbins (author: Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, etc) fan? He lives, privately, around here and read at a little local event last night. In the words of Birders, a Lifer for me!

Racer could give a whip ... I don't think Racer is a snow bunny!
About Chico ... some friends found Chico in their neighbor's back yard with a scrape on his nose. Despite all of us going door to door and putting an ad in the local paper, no one claimed him. We had room, Bunny Lady has a big soft heart, end of story! Chico is a chunky bunn ... a bit bigger than a regulation football.

But looks can be deceiving! Chico is the easy going type, happy, and a big lover with BL. Maybe he just did not like the pillow!
Some how the first blogiversary of the House of Rabbits slipped by - having too much fun I suppose? The very first comment we got (other than from family) was from Yoga Gal. Have not heard from her since, but that blog is still around!

The Luckster lays possession on Savannah's best-covered pot.
It's a great spot ... plenty to see and good protection.
Unfortunately the umbrella must come down when the wind blows ... which is a lot this time of year. And that also usually means rain which means the pot hay gets wet which means yuck ... Bunny Lady tries to keep fresh and dry in there, but sometimes Mr. Weather just does not give us a break.
This is the time of year known as the "Pineapple Express" up here in the Pacific N.W.
Warm and moist air from Hawaii comes flowing in pretty regularly ... you can smell the exhaust vents on the Chinese restaurants in Honolulu!!!
It's also the time of year when we might get bad flooding .. especially if we have a cold front with snow in the mountains ... just 40 miles east ... followed by that warm, moist air full of rain ... we just missed it so far this year, but the season is not over either.

Get away Benji .... I will get them put away and in the right priority order any day now ... any day I tell you. You are getting as bad as Bunny Lady here with your tidy-tidy-tidy hints. Besides, this way when company comes they are SOOOO impressed by our variety of taste in reading! Not to mention the casualness of our place!

Thank You Zoey for filling in so well as the Thursday Blogger! You have many fans.
BL says there once were First Raccoons, back when Presidents were real people with the same wacky habits guys like us have.

First .... I would make a GREAT first Bunny. Doncha Think????
Second .... RG and BL had an event this evening and they are home a bit late and pretty pooped so this is it for today! There has been a lot of rain and more coming. None of us went outside today. Felt good to just flop around the condo in our PJ's .....

Benji is looking over into where Racer hangs out ... except Racer is already in for the evening. Maybe Benji thinks ... wait, wait, wait, ... NO ... I WILL NOT suppose what a rabbit might be thinking ... NO NO NO ...
Late night with big rain coming .. see ya tomorrow!

Now I must pass it on .... the rules:
1. Only five people are allowed
2. Four have to be dedicated followers of your blog
3. One has to be someone new or recently new to your blog and live in another part of the world
4. You must link back to whoever gave you the award.
Gosh .. another part of the world will be Mats at Bunny.nu
Dedicated followers .. oh there are SOOOO many :<) .... here goes ..
The Detroit Pickler
Our neighbor over the hill
Peaches, Elvis, and Pink
Little Red Bunny Flynn
Bunny Lady is down glued to the TV. I will wait a bit .. I do think the result of the presidential election is pretty well known and I suspect a LOT of bunnies (and their slaves) are going to be happy. Being a Conservative is a lonely job these days.

We have had a pretty dry, cool last 1/2 of October. The colors are as pretty as they ever get here .. which is not much since we have few hardwoods - mostly firs and cedars and huge maples with leaves that get orange brown. But now it is beginning to rain and Mr. weather has rain for as far as he cares to look. Usually the wind blows real good on about Nov 11 and that is when all the leaves fall! We'll let you know how that comes out.
