The Youth Fair and vicious bunnies

Phil and Marcela at the Youth FairYesterday afternoon, Marcela and I enjoyed a day at the fair. We spent most of our time in the exhibits looking at the artwork and school projects. Marcela always fusses at me when we go to the fair because I kinda sorta in a way rush her through the exhibits. Being a school teacher, she is always interested in seeing what she could submit to the fair for exhibition. She loves to look at all the presentations the kids make, especially the ones about different cultures. We also enjoyed the awesome carnival foodage! I had half a gyro, half an order of curly fries, half an arepa (Kelly’s favorite), half a virgin pina colada, one corndog, and a couple of mini donuts with cinnamon and sugar. It really was delicious, but I promise it was not as much as it seems! 🙂

We also spent quite a bit of time looking at the rabbits, the geese, the chickens, turkeys, quails, hatching chicks, pheasants, and a very beautiful peacock. Wilsonetta would have been swooning over that fancy guy!

Holland Lop

Marcela fell in love with a little brown Holland Lop (first place in his category) that wanted to be petted so bad that he stuck his little bunny nose against the cage and didn’t move an inch as long as Marcela was petting him. The animal keeper for the rabbits and guinea pigs informed us that this sweet little guy who really does love attention and seems so innocent is actually mean to him. He said the rabbit bites him every time he sticks his hand in the cage to feed or clean him. He demonstrated this by trying to give the little guy some hay and the rabbit ran at him like a little rabbit shaped attack dog, started flinging hay everywhere in the cage, and tried to bite him! The Rabbit of Caerbannog wasn’t quite this vicious.

Finally, we had enough walking around, food, exhibits, cattle shows, salesmen pushing their leather and jewelry cleaners, etc., so we took off so I could be in bed to be up for another workday. Thankfully, I got to work this morning and they sent me home since I was the highest in NRC hours. I got paid for 4 hours but didn’t have to do anything but sit through the 15 minute briefing. WOOHOO! Maybe I will go back to the fair today. Just kidding.

    My baby does not need any fancy guy at this time in her life. She is loved and adored toooooo much by us to share her time with another. LOL…..

    OK, so why didnt the bunnies attack Phillip??–it’s not like he doesnt resemble a big carrot when he’s dressed in UM orange??

  3. Ela,
    The poor girl needs a man!

    Vick,
    I explained that the rabbit was obviously carnivorous and I only looked like veggies.

    I am way too young to be a grandmother. Thank you very much. LOL….

    Today some neighbors of ours have family here from Canada and they could not believe that this bird stays in our tree, but that she walks around feeds of the fresh cut grass and when it is time to eat she lets us know. When Anne comes by sometimes she is waiting for the garage to open thats how she knows it’s time to eat. She is a beatiful gift from GOD shes already beign here over a year.

  5. We have bunnies that have on occasion acted in the same manner. They think of their cage as their “den” and they will protect it. You just need to show them who’s boss!

  6. I will never forget when Kourtney was born and I was still in the hospital you stopped by after Hurricanes game and brought me an arepa. Good time, good times.
