... It seemed to work for Chico!"  -  Benji being Bold (Backward)!
"The bad weather right here for us did not materialize.  Yay!  Other places to the North and South got lots of rain and wind.  Our Pacific NW rivers are relatively short and have a pretty steep run from mountains to sea, so while they do flood, not usually for long periods or over vast areas.  People near them are pretty much prepared." - RG Relieved

.... but it is dry and it will float, so I am good to go!" - Chico at the Ready
"The Pacific NW weather has been pretty wild all around us, but we have avoided most of it so far.  Very high winds predicted for tonight though.  Flashlights at our fingertips!" - RG Waiting

... that big rains, winds, and maybe flooding is coming.  I'm In, High, and Dry!  Bring it on!" - KB the Bold
"Mr. Weather can be a bit overboard sometimes.  But still - all the leaves are on the trees and a big wind could cause some problems.  I got the trusty chain saw out and ready to go, just in case.  BL figured out how to stream Netflix to her computer screen.  Things look good.  Stand By!" - RG Prepared

... That's my home.  I think there are oats in the dish and fresh hay in the box.  But - This is good too!" - Contented Racer
"If Racer is Happy then Everybody is Happy!" - Happy RG

"Between this plucking and a warm compress on a dribbly eye, we are not popular today with the Royalty.  There is probably no way out ...." - RG the Doomed

"Benji has taken to more exploring and snooping around the very big deck area he has.  He can find a tasteful wisp in many places!  It might be that the bit of rain we have been having freshens things up?" - RG Curious. 
"You don't suppose it has anything to do with there not being any more treats in my usual spot do you???" - Benji Blunt

... And with very nice care at that!  Laura from Reno Rabbits was here every evening for food and attention and more food, and then a nice lady with a cute kid came every morning for breakfast and snuggles.  Beat that!  (Oh - and they came back.) - Chico and Zoey and all the rest!
"It is SOOOO nice to be missed." - RG Returned

"The Beans have things to do - you get me for an extra day.  Lucky You! - Well Rested KB
 "Oh Oh!"  "UFO over Mount Baker."  "Prepare for the worst!"

"OATS?" ...

... "Did I hear somebody say Oats?"  -  Princess Alert
"She did indeed.  But one of us will have to go out and "suggest" that she go in, while the other will be in there to shut the door so she won't go back out!" - Conniving RG

... Somebody gave mine a 90 degree turn.  Not sure if I like the new scheme or not.  What do YOU think?" - Benji Undecided
"Personally, I think he's pouting."  - RG Observing

"I DUNNO' ...

... Looks like a pretty tight fit." - Zoey Deciding
"Not a lot of shelter from the thunder and lightening we have been having either.  I think you had best just hop right on inside the BIG house and cuddle down with Chico." - RG Concerned

... Just a little rearranging on the Good Ship Paddle-Pop." - Cap'n Racer
"I think we'll change out that cabin-box too - it is kind of - ah - messy.  May need to "parbuckle" it. - RG the Engineer

... where YOUR cat is? Hmmmm?" -  Curious KB
(Does your cat have one eye bigger than the other too? - Curious RG)

"YAK, YAK, YAK, YAK, ...

... Good golly but those ladies do talk and laugh a lot in there." - The Listening Threesome
 "Bridge game at the House of Rabbits.  Lot of tasty left-over table snacks!" - RG the Snoop
Asian pears - Yes.  Eat them like a regular pear - yummy good.  They are round.
Fall Asters ....

"Here is a close up of some of the branches on the Asian pear tree - pretty much all ripe at once!
 BL makes a mean Asian pear cake - and next week I hope to post the recipe."  - Fruity RG
 "Now Peeps - stop drooling and ogle me!"  -  Chico the Grande

Tuesday, September 10, 2013


... A girl is trying to sleep here." - Princess Relaxed
"Fine.  Just fine.  I'll sneak off and take a picture of the loaded pear tree." - RG (slinking.)

... Lots of more sun and warm coming to the House of Rabbits territory - plus Racer is giving us all a good blinding blast too!" - RG the Meteorologist
(1. We are the lost sunglasses capital of the world because of the up and down weather most of the year.
2. The zucchini is coming along - some was in that nice salad and the rest is earmarked for more bread.  The apples still are not ripe.  BUT!  One of our two Asian pear trees is awash with ripe ones ... and so what does BL do with some of them?  Make a pear cake!) - RG the Taste-Tester

"Not sure what is going on here - he spent a couple of hours tucked in under that stuff!" - RG the Fascinated

"It was a loooong weekend for the big boy.  I volunteered to organize recycling and composting for the Saturday Skagit River Salmon Festival and then the Sunday Skagit Flats Marathon and Half-Marathon.  Each event had hundreds and hundreds of attendees.  Dawn 'till dusk, pretty much.  BL held down the home front and bunny duties and also went out crabbing with a friend.  Brought home the meat and cleaned it and made me this delicious and magnificent Crab Louis for Sunday dinner.  Oh my!" - Well fed and Pooped!
"But I had lots of help - here is a crew replacing a bunch of full bags of Compostables, Recyclables, and Trash!" - RG the Boss

... I'm going to take a nice long nap." - Sleepy, Cozy, Determined KB

"Evening bunny-salad foraging includes a visit to one of several nasturtium patches - leaves and flowers both!" - RG the Gatherer

"Now Chico had HIS nose in the pink dish AFTER eating all the oats in the blue dish.  He literally pirouetted away when he saw me and the camera.  Zoey is occupied with a very special piece from the hay pile...
... Neither one looks to be starving."  -  RG Observing

Wednesday, September 4, 2013


"Zoey!  Those are Chico's oats.  You already ate yours.  Be polite here." - RG the referee.
"Nom, Nom, Nom.  They shouldn't have been in a pink bowl then."

"There is Racer at the upper end of his "bowling alley".  He comes barreling down those boards and makes a flying leap into the box cabin of his sturdy little ship at the other end here!  Sometimes the Princess is up by him on her side of the fence and she comes right along too!" - 10-Pin RG.
(By the way - he is in full motion.  He started under that pot of basil back there!)

"HI! ...

... ENJOY! ...
BYE!" - Chico the Sweet
"A bunn of few words." - RG the Interpreter
