I Remember Rabbits
Elizabeth once sewed for me a stuffed pink rabbit for my birthday? With a flower crown and buttoned on arms. It was just a pretty delicate rabbit but his arms kept falling off.
And then there was a tiny, white, weird rabbit she randomly sewed for me with only a body and drawn on arms and legs but a cute stitched on face.
And then one Christmas Dad gave me a cardboard rabbit that he cut and put with arms and legs that could rotate around.
Mom also sewed me a stuffed rabbit with a purple dress, this was one of my absolute favorites that I slept with every night.
I also had two rabbits Elaine and Oatmeal....both I thought were sisters. Until I found tiny little rabbits hopping around one random day. Turns out Elaine was actually a boy! From then on more rabbits appear. Almond, Rings, Peter, Fluff, Tiny, etc...and it turned into an epidemic...a weird one. Very few bunnies survived!
One day a friend gave me one of her rabbits that was being beat up by another male rabbit. I took it in and renamed it SB (Special Bunny) and over a month it regained all it's fur and was cute again in my rabbit hut. Turns out she was a girl too....thus more bunnies.
My friend then gave me her other two rabbits, on male and one female.....and I had an endless supply of bunnies, many rabbits found a way to dig out of their outdoors pen and ran off which lightened the load but from what I could recall I had a LOT of rabbits one summer.
Thankfully a couple came to our farm to buy my brothers goats, they looked at my rabbits and decided they wanted to buy a few...turns out they bought ALL of them! I was thrilled! NO MORE RABBITS! Thank the Lord....plus I made like $100 which was nice.
Anyways that was just a random thought.
Ah the years of rabbits.
