Rabbit Movie

As promised...



The weekend was busy and went quite well - except for the weather which failed to comply with any of our plans.

Friday was rained off, so we had a lazy day at home - we read, chatted, I painted toy soldiers and made pizza.  Although not the day we had planned it was much nicer than letting it pass as just another Friday.

Saturday I was taking part in the Uni Open Day, delivering my presentation twice - second time at double speed which was a daunting prospect but actually seemed to work well in the end.  One of the parents even got talking to me after and asked about how HE could learn to do maps on the computer!

Sunday the barbeque was rained off so we did it indoors on the griddle - still very good.  I also roasted a chicken which I basted in a mix of soy sauce, chili and paprika.  Ooooh Yeah!  That was good.

Sunday was Fathers Day, of course, and I got a nice bunch of presents including a Thin Lizzy t-shirt - love it.  I put it on and played a few old Lizzy songs on my guitar to celebrate.

Sunday was also the day that the rabbits got moving too, as shown above.  Great to see them all looking so healthy and ready to take on the world!  Now we are waiting for the chance to get them sexed and arrange precautions to prevent a further population explosion!

Have a great day - I am doing the lottery tonight - the jackpot is £89 million...  Wish me luck!

English rabbits look so different than Nebraska bunnies. We have a call-out: "BUNNY!" when we see one. Ours are brown and tan with a big cotton-ball tail. I must admit yours look very healthy. You're doing something right. Or are they doing it right? ;-)

James - the father of these babies is a brown one, born in the wild but rescued with a broken leg as a baby. The mother's colouring has dominated in the babies, though. I think the success of the babies is largely down to my wife building great runs and making sure they have a never ending supply of fresh food...

Those little bunnies are SO adorable. Looks like Frou-Frou wants to get in there and play!

Glad you were able to make the weekend special in spite of the rain. We've had our share of rain too - it started Saturday and has been hanging around ever since.

Happy belated Fathers Day!

Terri - Not sure that "play" is the right word for what Frou might do with those bunnies... She is a true terrier afterall!

Hello to The Glamourous Rock Chef!
Thanks for your comments :)
I secretly hope you win the jackpot because I know you are a very nice person who would lend an unlucky dude like me a few millions like that. Ha!
Sex those bunnies quick, or you'll have bunny patties come Christmas!
It's good to be back.

Rock Chef said...

Shadowthorne - It's good to have you back too! If I win I will buy you a new car - maybe a Humvee with a machinegun turret or something?

Hey I accidentally typed rockchef into my browser window and did you know there is a domain squatter on www.rockchef.com? It's not THAT kind of link, but a music-oriented one. FYI

Glad your presentation went well. You always seem to be so well prepared. Your sauce for the roasted chicken sounds great. Now I will try that. James just got some paprika for our place.

The rabbits are so darn cute. Nice video.

James - Thanks for that - I am happy to let them keep it, I like my blogspot address.

TechnoBabe - I like to be prepared - I can't fly by the seat of my pants when it comes to something important like that.
