Monday Bunday



Here is Amelia in our newest structure known as The Buddha Boudoir. It has since been changed slightly so that the laundry basket cannot entrap the rabbit within.


When it came to choosing who, or rather as my departed mother would correct one to say, to whom to present the give-away print of
Amelia in Her Dream, first and foremost we wanted to be fair. But what is fair? An On-Line dictionary says that fair is "free from favoritism or self interest or bias or deception; conforming with established rules or standards." I didn't establish any rules or standard except no tricks. Now if I did the random number generator, that could be thought of as fair, if you look at it in a vacuum, that is to say all entrants being equal. But often in sports for instance there is the use of handicaps to make things fair. So what if I only considered the people how didn't have one of my prints already, would that be more fair? But what if there was someone who had had a bad day and needed a perk would it be more fair to give them an advantage because they had had some undeserved bad luck?


The space between, there is none.

Luck, Fate and Karma are tricky, why do things happen? sometimes it is quite obvious. For instance did you know I was the cause of my Xhubs hernia? Yes, I did this by serving the Chinese take-out while it was still hot. You see if moving a heavy and extensive record collection and you ask people to help you and you reward these hard workers with nice, nice Chinese Take-out from "the really good place down the street" and if your wife stupidly serves the food, as mentioned before, while it is still hot then the helpers will stop working and you will be carrying the records all by yourself and you will get a hernia. It is her fault for insisting on this adherence to the code of good hosting, not yours for not realizing limitations and common sense. This would be an example of cause and effect. It is also called a red flag, but let's not get into that.

Theme: white toes

The point is, and you've been wondering what it is, I'm sure, is that one of our Bunny Blogger friends has suffered the loss of a bun: Skittles. Small and densely packed with personality Skittles passed on Saturday. So in all fairness we give away the Amelia print to Skittles' family, though it can hardly make up for the loss, it is certainly something to do. Sometimes you just have to do something.

Hug your bunnies and your loved ones of whatever species
and have a great Summer week.

Dear Diana,

We are all very touched by your thoughtfulness. The kind words from our bunny blogger friends have really lifted our hearts at this sad time. And now everytime we look at your beautiful print (which will be regularly as I have a spot for it next to my computer screen), it will remind me of the good times we had with our young man Skittles, and the great support and love received from our friends.

Thank you
XXX

Great idea to give the Amelia print to Skittles' family!

Michelle May said...

An excellent choice for the prize. So sad for them. :(

RoadBunner said...

We certainly cannot find any fault in your logic!

And I like that there is no space between the bun :) They look like good buds.

How kind and thoughtful of you! Animal Lovers are the very best people.

bunnygirl said...

Excellent choice. May Amelia give as many smiles as Skittles' memory.

Rabbits' Guy said...

Just goes to show - fair is what fair is!! Outstanding choice - I'm sure we all salute it.

I hope BL does not read the hot chinese take out story - she is looking for sub-plot ideas for her NaNoWriNo project come November. I fear I am the plotee. (Want a cat?)

White toes - Racer has some, so does the Princess. Go well on bunnies!

Crafty Green Poet said...

that is definitely a good way to choose who to give the prize to!

Christina said...

What a wonderful person to choose. In honor of Skittles and family, Congratulations.

Paula said...

Hugs, kisses, and purrs to Skittle's family. Skittles was obviously a sweety - and so are you. Great choice, D.

M.Kate said...

For years I wanted to do a blog giveaway but never had one. Choosing will be so difficult and I didn't want to dissapoint anyone, yet not practical to give to all. However, I think your choice is right .. so congrats to Skittles :) Hugs to you and all bunsssss ;)

Paula said...

PS The buns look they're on the beach under a shade basket =:}
