Baxter and Finnegan are a bunny love couple now. So maybe they need one of those special names like Brangelina...maybe Finnster? Baxegan?

Candy Man

One Year Later...



Today is one year since Greyton died. It was shocking ,but somewhat expected since the old boy was 10 -elderly for a rabbit. His timing knocked us for a loop. It was only two days prior for Mrs. P. and I to leave for a trip to Vegas. So the grief and the numbness had us in shock as we enjoyed Vegas.

As we returned home, it hit us again as Twizzle now seemed lost without his companion and friend. We tried to bond him with Baxter but they would always fight.
A few months later, by chance, Ollie came into our lives, Twizzle seems to prefer his company, and is very calm now. He sleeps near his cage every night. They still tend to scuffle, and for Ollie's safety since he is so tiny compared to Twizzle we still have to keep them seperated sometimes.

Then came Finnegan, another lop , who also oddly has similar habits to Greyton...and Greyton was a weirdo with his sleeping spots and personality(love for the vaccum cleaner) Baxter and Finnegan have really made progress with their bonding.

But one year later, Greyton is still missed. I'm happy he lived a long life and that we gave him a good home all those years. I'm happy that his photos have gone out worldwide and many people have asked about him, which in turn has led me to educate people about rabbits. He was truly one of those once in a lifetime pets.

Luciano Pavarotti



One of the most famous tenors in Opera history, Luciano Pavarotti has died at age 71.

Return Engagement...

The Arden Theatre Company in Philadelphia will be performing the Stephen Sondheim musical "Assassins" Sept. 13th-October 21st.
In what was be the greatest stroke of theatre event marketing,and in conjuction with the College of Physicians of Philadelphia are presenting something a little out of the ordinary for Opening Night.

The College of Physicians runs the Mutter Museum, which in the 19th century taught medical student s about anatomy, but today serves as a look at medical history past and present.There are over 20,000 items of medical interest to see.

Two of their exhibits include a portion of the brain of Charles Guiteau, assassin of James Garfield. Another is part of the thorax of Abraham Lincoln assassin, John Wilkes Booth.

And so for opening night, the brain of Guiteau and John Wilkes Booth's thorax will be on display in the Arden Theatre's lobby.

This will mark the first time since that night in April 1865 that any portion of John Wilkes Booth has been inside a theatre! As a history geek I find this extremely cool.

On The Road...

Fifty years ago today, "On the Road" by Jack Kerouac was first published. I first read it in 1983-it became a favorite book of mine. I always get the urge to travel when I read it.

But there are all kinds of journeys, and once again I got the desire to start walking down the blogging path once again. I'm sure it will take awhile to get the audience back. I enjoy hearing from all the nice readers around the world who find my page. I'm sorry that I occasionally have to leave the page, but I'll try to keep this going again for a long time.

yes-there will be Monday Bunday. The bunnies are all doing well. Finnegan,Twizzle, Baxter and Ollie are their usual sweet selfs. Occasional holes dug in carpets, occasional headphone cords chewed, but all living happy bunny lives with us.

Mrs. Pratt has been in Scotland the last two weeks. It's a nice trip she takes every few years with her mother. I will have her guest blog here and tell you about her adventures...including a boat trip on Loch Ness.

As for me, it's been a busy time of year for me with my work. Fall has begun, and as the lazy days of summer fade, I have a lot to keep my attention.

So let me clear the cobwebs, and state I am open for business again.The journey begins again...
