Run, Rabbit, Run,Run,Run


The little bunny is having such fun, the other morning, when out for his constitutional, he first chased a sparrow, then a blackbird.He seems to be the only one living in a hidey-hole behind a pipe, a very safe place. then he hops about, sits on his back legs and has a wee wash, then breakfast. Ginger Boy has given a chase, but wasn’t interested in anything serious at all, Whew! What a relief!!!

This has been cropped, so not as clear as the others. All taken at 8 p.m. not great light, and I couldn’t get closer. Those ears pick up the slightest sound from so far away.

Life continues. Firewood is being thrown into the shed, all dry, and a wonderful sight, waiting for those cold winter days. The two trees that have been felled, one is slowly being cut into rounds, waiting for the helpers to arrive for more serious heavy work.

Best of all, good/great/ truly wonderful  news, one step up the ladder, the referral letter has arrived at Wellington Hospital, 6 days after our visit at Wanganui. It will now be assessed for urgency.  After 18 months of waiting, this is a miracle, hope the next wait is not so long !!!

What a sweet little bunny and getting your wood ready for winter is a big help I'm sure.

So good to hear that you are finally getting some action for Hugh.

You both are in my prayers ~ Love & hugs ~ FlowerLady

So glad to get the news that Hugh's referral is moving along. I have a "thing" for bunnies. I love to watch them.

Glad to know that Hugh's assessment and possible repair is a step closer. Hope it's soon.

Cute rabbit. Hope it isn't a problem with your garden. Two winters ago the rabbits here destroyed quite a few young trees. Coyotes seen to have 'removed' the bunnies this winter.

Thanks for your updates and pics.

Those medical things just go on and on. Hope this one works out for you. Saw the doc today and learned that my surgery last Nov. Is working well. Good news!

Leeanne said...

That's good news, perhaps your wee bunny is a good luck charm?

Susan Heather said...

Good news about Hugh. Your bunny story reminds me of when we were in the Far North where there were no rabbits. One spring we saw a rabbit playing on the lawn it was soon joined by another and we used to enjoy watching them playing on the lawn. By autumn there appeared to be MILLIONS of them and they had undermined a shed and caused havoc. From then on rabbit was on the menu.

Wonderful news about your Hugh.
Cutest little bunny,

Jim said...

Wonderful news, Jean! What a relief you both must feel.
Now for the little bunny.....I hadn't realized they could be so inquisitive. What a little cutie and great that you manged to get even these wonderful photos of it.
You are waiting for winter to arrive as we wait for spring to arrive here in Nova Scotia on the the 20th of March.
