fly, drive, fly, drive....the votes are in, and it's a landslide!!! driving the bunnies it is!! now these bunnies have been driven places before so i'm not going into this all innocently, bright eyed, bushy tailed and full of ignorant optimism. BUT as with everything bunny, hoping for the best. i know full well that bells could pull a little GI stasis out of his hat, stopping the whole thing wherever and for however long he damn well pleases....like the bunny version of russian roulette.
in fact we just picked out our camper trailer too. it's a sweet little number that pops up and down and folds in and out and will make a nice resting place for our growing family. yup! we have a new addition...and it's not a furry friend, in fact he's not furry at all! nor is he two inches off the ground either.
wait just a minute now...is this a bunny blog or a danielle steele novel? it's a bunny blog!!! so please squelch the romance talk....let's just say that we were dear friends and roommates 20 years ago and now after all this time he's found me again, thank you very much goo goo goo google!
there's a whole lot of lovey-dovey stuff im leaving out, but the skinny version is that he's coming back out here in a few weeks to get me and the bunnies and take us back to the west coast. sure there were talks of him moving here, but guess what? besides being absolutely fabulous, and ridiculously adorable, (he knows it too, not unlike a very tall bunny) but he's actually got a job to boot! supposedly there's more where that comes from, so with bunnies in tow, we're making the trek. ever since my first trip there, oregon has always been my favorite state and now i hear there's a whole bunch of glass studios! AND D moll!!! foon!!! tamara!!!! malcolm and nadine!!!! lynne!!!!! aren't too far away....can you guys even imagine when i get my hands on amelia or nibs?!?!?!
we'll be here until the end of september. so jade, lisee, lisa, shell....and ANYONE else who has wanted to meet the bunnies we're still right here!!! so get yourselves in gear and come visit! those of you out west or even in the middle i'm not sure how this is all going to work, but we may be driving right past your house! depending on how little bells does, he really does hate the car....we may be stopping for extended periods of time, hence the camper!
i'm starting this adventure by putting them in the car for brief rabbit reality adjustments. they'll just sit inside while nothing traumatic happens. they'll be outfitted with their favorite treats tunnels and blankets while they're doing this. then after a few times of it not being at all scary...we'll go on little trips. then we'll go on bigger trips. then we'll just drive from new york to oregon, easy peasey. right?! they will have the entire back of my exterra all to themselves and i'll have it flattened out and comfy cozy so that one of us can crawl back there and make sure that bells isn't piercing nuage's back and neck with his claws....which is what he usually does, but i've never had a co pilot before!!! we're also only packing their x pen collection in the camper so as soon as we stop they'll have up to 4000 feet of bunny run around room in any state park that's luck enough to have them! do you think that's enough?
i sure do want to thank you ALL for your advice and your stories and so many great ideas!!!!! i also want to thank those of you who helped me so much with your RAW file input. turns out i needed to install the software that came with the camera. duh! i've done all that now, but i still haven't braved trying to download them! i have no room on my hard disc...the story of my life. so i have to move stuff to the external hard drive, then delete and then learn to edit RAW files and then i'll have an empty memory card to take more bunny photos with! how lame am i? that's rhetorical...i know darn well how lame i am, so zip it!
oh and bunny girl, you mean you're NOT the diary of a slow triathlete? i always thought you were! she must have been confused by some of my comments then...
