Moose on the Loose!

The Moose-tacular Giveaway box from Karen M. and Weasley of Rabbits Eat Quilts has arrived! It's full of wonderful things! (Apologies for the delay in posting its arrival and for the further delay in fully utilizing its contents: waiting for cold to go away.)

Weasley sent the buns some of his precious stash of crab apple sticks!!!

This caused a great stir among the buns and led to the great stick standoff, until reinforcements arrived. Bertie and Mercedes thank Weasley for sharing his stash! They don't feel up to his stick eating standard as posted in his blog, though. They say they will needs lots of practice!

The recipe for moose cookies looks delicious, and will be attempted later in the week. Photos will be posted of the finished product, if any survive the humans' depredations.

We have our very own Moose Monster!!! Yay!!!!

What do you mean you're too sick to make my catnip toys, catnip mat, and felted mohair balls now? What am I supposed to do, wait until Xmas? That is not acceptable. And don't think I have forgotten about the free-range turkey fail either, human.

Thank you so much, Karen and Weasley!!!!

Foggy Monday Tasks

It's foggy and it's Monday. We're going back to bed. You stay up and start working on our Christmas present list. And the cat wants something called a free-range turkey for Thanksgiving. Only he wants it to live in the backyard.

Like last year. But more. We have given you plenty of notice.

P.S. We need new boxes. Now.

Fargo is a Winner!

Fargo (aka The Great Pumpkin) is over the moon at having won The Moose-tacular Giveaway over at Karen M.'s and Weasley's blog Rabbits Eat Quilts

While the analytical minds of Bertie and Mercedes want to know if Weasley feels that his papaya treats were sufficient compensation for being awakened; they are thinking of opening up a bunlaw website to deal with such legal matters.

Pumpkin Reboot

One of the pumpkins was reintroduced to the buns'pen. Here are the photos that ensued.

Pumpkin jail.

Pumpkin Time

Halloween cat watches over sleeping Fargo

Bert and Mercedes have never really dealt with pumpkins before. Their aunt was kind enough to get them some organic ones. So far, after an initial inspection and chinning, the pumpkins remain unscathed. They were, however, extremely interested in the carrot chips she also provided them with and wanted to stage a competitive carrot chip eating contest.

Happy B.I.R.D.

Happy Belated International Rabbit Day!

"She can't do anything right. Instead of celebrating our glory on the correct day, she spent Sunday cleaning our area and messing up our stuff!"

Grist to the Mill

In California, many state parks are due for closure. Here are some photos from Bale Grist Mill SHP, that is still open on weekends.

Blogger is not letting me caption as I would like: these two captions go with the last two pictures:

Poison oak is so lovely in the fall.

The DR shirt meets a chef sculpture at the VMarketplace 1870, a former useful historic building in Yountville, Napa Valley, CA converted into trendy shops.

Terms that have entered the lexicon from grain milling: "fair to middling", "go against the grain", "a millstone around one's neck", "nose to the grindstone", "run-of-the-mill".

(Remember you can click on the pictures to make them bigger and see writing and details better.)

They call it Labor Day for a reason

We have decided that since Labor Day is a holiday, we should give you a special task. We have not seen a listing in the Guinness Book of World Records for the world's largest hay bale. That is a record we would like to own (and munch on). Hop to it.

The cat isn't doing anything, he can help you.

Hey! We've got hay!

Oats float our boats!

Where's the salad?

Don't forget the raisins!

You might have done OK, today!
