Today Was A Very Bunny Day!!!!

Today was the day myself, Emma Belle, June and her daughter Caryn set out for the "Get Peggy A Bunny Adventure." And what an adventure it was. Now, June may have a totally different story than me, TOTALLY. Emma and I set out from my house at around 8:30 am, drove to Franklin, KY and picked up June and Caryn. All was fine we were in happy spirits. Sweet Caryn kept Emma happy in the back seat playing games with her. Got to Nashville, still with good attitudes all around. Headed out of Nashville toward the bunny house and we drove and drove and drove and drove some more. I'm not blaming anyone, really, I'm not. We had wrong directions and not of our fault. We ended up driving at least 15 miles beyond our proper exit. By this time our spirits were waning and June stated that I probably should go ahead and get two bunnies so we didn't have to do this again. Can you detect the negative fibes? Actually, I was not very happy myself and decided that she was probably right. But we made the best of it discussing what we would name the two. Emma wanted to name one Zippee and the other Zappee. So, that was fine, I mean, it's not like a bunny is going to come running when called.

Long story short, what I thought would probably take about 1 1/2 hours from June's house ended up taking at least 2 hours, probably more I think. We finally got to the bunny house and we all rolled, I mean climbed, out of the car. Once there it was so difficult to choose which bunnies I wanted. There were three litters of babies, 10 weeks, 8 weeks and 6 weeks. After going from one cage of babies to another I finally chose the two that would come home with me. The both are French Angora, could I have anything but French? One sable pearl (I think that is what it is called) female 6 weeks old and a REW male 10 weeks old. We packed back in the car with Zippee and Zappee and headed back to Ole Kentuck.

I could say a lot here about where we stopped to eat, suffice it to say we were not happy. The trip home didn't seem to take as long, you know how that is. Emma changed their names to Cloudy and Sunshine. We dropped June and Caryn off and home we went.

Their names were changed to Elphaba and Fieryo. David, who usually names all our animals, wants to name them Priscilla and Aquilla from the New Testament. Emma just said she wants to call the girl Kitty. I don't know what the heck they are going to be called and at this point who care.

I was away from the house a total of 8 hours counting traveling time and stopping by the store for bunny stuff on the way back. All in all I'd say it was a pretty good day. Except for the fact I scared the crap out of June at least a couple times. My brakes on the passenger side are out, sorry June.

How soon can you start collecting their fiber? Are the French the ones that have to be combed everyday?
