Quote For The Weekend (Seriously Late Edition w/Rabbits)


How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.
—Anne Frank

We tend to rotate which charities we give to monthly. Save The Children often tops the list. Also the Mae Tao Clinic located along the Thai-Burma border in Thailand—Dr. Cynthia is dedicated and committed and grateful for aid. Here at home I support a few local wildlife organizations, donate clothing and food to shelters and whenever I stop in for parakeet food at Kahoot’s, pause to stroke impossibly soft ears of baby bunnies waiting for homes, fervently telepathing to them with all the energy my heart possesses, Love, love, love you! I’m not sure what the deal is with the bunnies. But Kahoot’s always has them. I wish I could take them all home, but then there’d just be another mini-warren in the store the next day and besides, we have 3 cats, an enthusiastic Labrador and a parakeet fond of letting us know he exists and that’s about all I can handle pets-wise. Oh, bunnies. And fish in your bubbling tanks. And fiddler crabs endlessly waving. Oh, feeder fish! I’m sorry. I wish I could take you home, too. But not the tarantula. But maybe the snakes. Maybe not. But maybe. Perhaps I need to open my own wildlife sanctuary—in about 20 years. In the meantime, it’s Giving Day on the Ponderosa—do you know where your checkbook is (mine turned up in my riding boot, just glad it was found…), or your local feedstore filled with bunnies, or the local Salvation Army, or—crap, the pancakes are burning.


Yes, little white dog or cat over there in the corner–you stay where you are while she feeds the bunnies.

    We have gone to the pet store just to visit the bunnies, and I always want to take one home, but I feel sorry enough for our poor martyred cat. The bunnies will have to wait.
