Another year gone

I'm a lousy blogger.   I guess I just forget that I started this blog.  I spend too much time on Facebook.

As years go 2013 was okay.  Hit a few rough patches with work and family.   My parents gave me a scare over the summer.  Both are doing okay.

No rabbits lost this year.  That's a plus.

Facebook can suck eggs

This story affected me deeply. I posted this on Facebook and it was deleted. So go suck eggs.

Heaven gained two angels on Saturday.

Another year over...

And a new one just begun (John Lennon)

Yep 2012 is here. Hope is it a good one. The last few have been rough. Last year was better but still a bit rough. Anyway, here is to the New Year and it better be not a only a good one but a better one.

crazy good

It's been too long since my last post.

My Bankruptcy went through without a hitch. I spent an hour in court watching the parade of people who did the same stupid stuff as I did. Got ourselves in over our heads. I will not, repeat, not do that again. It is a pain in the butt.

I finally negotiated with mortgage company. I hope things work out this time. Another pain I didn't need.

Goobie and Bono passed away within a month of each other. Bono I think passed of old age. I wasn't sure how old he really was. I guess he was around 8.

Goobie. Who knows what happened. Even the vet couldn't find anything wrong.

My job is going well. Not much to tell.

Better times

It's been over a year since the last post. Time flies. Anyway things are better. New job. Negotiating still with the mortgage company. Bankruptcy pending.

Peter, my California foster, hopefully will have his new home this weekend after two years in rescue. All other rabbits (Goobie, Woody, Sawyer, Maddie, Ruby, Bono, Max, Willie and Elby) are fine.

One thing this year I decided to do was to reconnect with some lost friends. I did make an attempt with finding a friend from high school and another friend from a job that I had many years ago. No connection yet.

The Day After Christmas

The Day After. I was pondering the meaning of the whole Christmas season during the last couple of days. I used to look forward to Christmas as a child. All children do. You are so excited that you try to stay awake the night before waiting for Santa but inevitably sleep comes. Christmas morning I would walk down the hall with my brother and sister and gasp at the sight of the decorated tree and all the pretty presents underneath it's branches.

Forward though the years the excitement as lessened the stress has increased. The meaning of the season has changed. I think part of is that people who meant a lot to me have passed on or moved away and we lost contact. Animals I have loved have passed on as well. One minute they are there and then they are gone. Or so it seems. Time flies. Emptiness.

Another thing I don't even like to shop anymore. There is no point to it. You rarely get something for someone that they truly want. You spend way too much money and for what. More emptiness.

I guess I'm being cynical here. I would rather take the money and donate it a charity. Most likely the animal shelter or the rescue I volunteer for. Animals are just as much in need as people. Tomorrow I will go to the shelter and play with the bunnies there. Not that I don't love mine but the rabbits at the shelter are just as much in need of some love.

I guess the point is that I should cherish the time I have with all those that I love and remember all the good and funny things of those that have gone on before. Don't take things for granted. I hope to be able to do this in the New Year.

Falling Snow
by anonymous

See the pretty snowflakes
Falling from the sky;
On the wall and housetops
Soft and thick they lie.
On the window ledges,
On the branches bare;
Now how fast they gather,
Filling all the air.
Look into the garden,
Where the grass was green;
Covered by the snowflakes,
Not a blade is seen.
Now the bare black bushes
All look soft and white,
Every twig is laden,
What a pretty sight!

Snowing it is. Blizzard conditions here in NJ. The weather people are predicting up to a foot of snow. It's pretty to look at, a pain to clean up.
There is nothing so sweet as a bunny
A dear, little, sweet, little bunny
He can hop on his toes
He can wiggle his nose
And his powder puff tail is quite funny.

Willie the Christmas tree is not for eating. Willie is my big White Red-eyed New Zealand foster. Mr. Rabbit decided to eat the tree. Hello the tree is on the table for reason. Crazy rabbit. Somehow the big boy stretched himself out and pulled on the one the strings. Outcome annoyed human and a chorus of stomping rabbits.

I'm calm now as are the rabbits. I found another string of lights. Hopefully I can keep the big boy from chewing on the tree again.
