I completely lack the energy to write today so here's a bunch of pictures of things instead.
Rudy gives a side-eye at a stuck pinball. (It's atop a clear plastic platform, center right of the picture.) From MJS's pole barn and a practice session ahead of the February 2017 state finals
What might have been: all bunny_hugger needed was one more win in the first round, and then to go on to a second round and manage four wins of seven there, and then on to a third round and four wins of seven then, and then she'd have a one-in-two chance of taking home this for herself. ... Or there's holding it, that's something good.
Columbo does some quick shoulder-grooming in one of the first days we would know him.
So bunny_hugger talks about how I get such great animal photos and all I ever do is put the camera on the ground and let them come to me.
A surprisingly rare pose for Columbo: paws together under his chest. He's more likely to lie down with his forelegs spread out, like a lion in front of the municipal library. Don't know why. Just part of his personality.
He's a very grey bunny, but if you put him under the strong lights of a flash camera you find: he's really a quite grey bunny.
So it turns out Columbo likes boxes, and good for him. It's hard to find a big enough one for him.
Trivia: In 1835 Richard Lawrence became the first attempted assassin of the United States president; his attempt to shoot Andrew Jackson failed as his gun's powder was damp. Lawrence, alleging Jackson had prevented him from becoming King of England, was found not guilty by reason of insanity. Source: Waking Giant: America in the Age of Jackson, David S Reynolds.
