"HOPPY NEW YEAR"

"Hoppy my foot.  Here I sit on my carpeted throne, staring at an empty food plate.  What kind of a way to start a New Year is that?  Hmmm?  Slaves, oh slaves .... "  -  The Princess the Regal.

"OK.  OK.  Coming my precious one.  Right after one last look at snow-covered Mount Baker and its surrounds before the light fades.  Happy New Year to all - may it be as good as it can be for you.  (Looks like it will be about the same as before for me.)"  RG the laggard.

Those fat-fingered people who care for us were cutting toenails yesterday.  They cut one of mine too far.  I bled.  They fixed it, but still.  What shall I do in retribution???  Hmmm?"  -  Benji the Nipped.

"You would think I could do better."  -  RG the Butcher.

"MORE HELP WANTED ...

... must be able to read fine print and do detailed, precision, painstaking work.  Reasonable wages."  RG the "Gifted."  (Anybody out there ever get one of these?  Can it actually be done?)

"Tell him I'm not here Chico.  And don't you apply either.  It's a lost, hopeless cause for us with out decent thumbs."  -  Zoey the Knowing.

"ALL EARS."

"Go on ahead, keep talking.  I hear you.  I can nibble an apple stick and listen at the same time."  -  Zoey the Ambidextrous.

"Our homemade Christmas wreath.  I have one of those rings with fasteners for holding branches.  We are fortunate to have many kinds of firs and cedars and berry-shrubs in the area.  One of my favorite traditions of the season."  -  RG the Crafty.

BL'S DILEMMA

"It snowed a bit late Monday night.  BL went out early Tuesday morning to drive down the hill and get the newspaper.  Backed out of the garage, tapped the brakes and - zzzzzippp - right to end of the garage apron.  Couldn't go forward, didn't dare go back.  The door is so heavy she couldn't hold it open and get out safely on the slick asphalt.  So she honked the horn.  Glad I heard it!"  -  RG to the Rescue!

"Listen Hot Shot.  If you were REALLY on top of things you would have delivered the newspaper right to her door, like I got this yummy apple stick!"  -  Chico the Deflater.

SOME FESTIVE ...

Getting started - working up to it.  A Poinsettia and a Princess.

"TOOT, TOOT, TOOTSIE ...

... oh my!  How about those toesies?  Eh?  -  Dapper Racer.

"Out our main windows.  The reddish is fields of blue berry bushes.  Just below the tree line, and just to right of center, those white things are trumpeter swans flying.  There are thousands of them, and tens of thousands of snow geese wintering here in the Skagit Valley."  -  RG yur Tour Guide.

There is a serious bunny question posed at LIFEATTHEZOO.  Maybe some of you can help.

"I MUST BE EATING WELL. ...

"TIDY FEET!"

"Benji's.  He could serve you lunch with those sweet softies!"  -  RG the Incredulous.

PS - We don't run a Cat Sweat Shop.  All that boy does is drag home moles and mice and leave them at the front door.  Yeeech.  Inside he mostly observes and sleeps.

"KB! DON'T YOU DARE! ...

... Leave BL's work alone there.  She'll make mole-fodder out of you!"  -  RG the Protector.
"Not to worry RG.  I know which side of the bread my butter is on!"  -  Wise KB.

"IT IS REALLY BETTER THAN IT LOOKS.

It's just a bad photo-angle.  And, dear old Winston is not exactly helping.  He acts like he can't BEAR to touch anything but that bit of platform carpet."  -  RG the Photog.

"My food dish is empty too."  -  Winnie the Pooh-Pooh.

"WON'T BE SHY, ...

"Nice to have around, too!"  -  RG the Serf.

"I'M NOT SHY! ...

"Yes Racer.  I do think we got that message."  -  RG the Convinced

"SELF ESTEEM? ...

... Just look into this eye.  See any fear in there?  Any doubt?  The slightest bit of hesitation?  NO NO NO!  When you've got it you've got it!  I, Zoey, have GOT IT!"  -  Zoey the Sure.
"And that, Zoey, is why you are so special."  -  RG the Fortunate.

"AW SHUCKS ....

.. so many of you readers like me, but I am so shy.  I must work on my esteem."  -  Winston the Meek(?)
"Yah.  Right."  -  RG the Unconvinced.

(Thanks for the concern for Benji everyone.  But I don't think a new bunny is in the cards.  Maybe a bonding with somebunn we already have.  We have had many bunnies in the house for almost 11 years now and have seen a goodly number get old/sick and die - a heart wrenching experience we grow weary of.  Our ability to be gone away visiting for very long has been compromised and much of our house has been relegated to bunny things!  It has been a great experience and will continue for some time, but not prolonged.  Of course then, there is always that other Flemish Giant we promised ourselves one day!)

BENJI'S CARPET

"Benji has been pretty quiet since Goldie died.  He spent a LOT of time laying cuddled up in a litter box with hay.  BL put this pretty two-tone piece of carpet down and now he spends several hours a day all stretched out and comfy!"  -  RG the Accomodater.
