"(Oh poor, poor Winnie-poops.  He is in there for 5 minutes, max., while BL cleans his abode - it rained a lot so no outside time.  Now it is a Federal Case.  But still ...) OK Winnie.  Promise?  No backing out if I open the door?" - RG the Shrewd

"Oats!  Princess!  Oats time.  Come and get your oats. Here they are, yum, yum, yum.  Oats."  - RG, Not believing he actually does this.

"If I can't see you, you are not there!"  -  Winston the Loner
 "The hops did not make it to the top by June 15.  They hit a bit of a road block and had too much cool weather."
 "Garden - carrots, broccoli, chard, kale, nasturtiums, potatoes.  Something for all." 
"We have not seen froggy for a long, long time and he is probably gone.  We searched and searched.  He was good while he lasted."
"And that's it for the bunn and garden report." - RG the Reporter.

... be patient and sleep all you can." - The Prisoner of RG
"I don't know how he can be so comfortable for so long on that awful rattan caned chair.  Maybe he feels like it is self imposed payback for pestering me so much." -  The Jailer of KB

(PS- A BIG thanks to Laura of RenoRabbits for coming over yesterday evening and making sure the little darlings did not die of lack of attention and food!)  


... when you get home." - Racer the Pooped
"We went to Seattle for a high school graduation today.  We got into four traffic jams, one was in the parking garage at the Seattle Mariners Baseball Stadium where the event was held.  Left at 2:15- home at midnight.  In the car for 6 hours.  It's right about 80 miles to Seattle.  But it was worth it!" - RG the Double Pooped.

"Don't forget the treat on my pillow." - Pampered Princess
"She came in from outside at about 5:00pm and scooted into her box.  Usually she hops right over to the oats in the pellets.  After about an hour I began to worry so I peeked in and she seemed OK.  Just to be sure I brought the food dish over.  I sure learn slow." - RG the Slave

... A Benji- Bunn in a Tub!  Hold the water!

Tuesday we traveled to the Seattle area to see No. 1 daughter's daughter (in red shirt) working with her recently adopted Oregon Wild Mustang filly - Confetti.  The kid has been around horses all her life - Mom runs the Shoofly Farm - and is just finishing 7th grade.  6 weeks ago this 1-yr old was a free-range wild mustang pony in the Paisley Desert herd in Oregon.  The two have come a long way!  (Two one-hour training sessions almost every day!)  Her goal is to be able to show Confetti in a fall event - for these ponies - that features how well they have been trained.

(Remind me to take a picture of the hops growing so we can see how that contest is doing.  It is going to be nip-and-tuck!)
