A birthday gift

Gosh, here it is about one hour before bedtime and I'm starting a post.

Thought I would hurry though before my birthday ends and show you something...


Oh wait! He went behind that old pot...Can you guess what it is? 

Meet Randall Rabbit...


He is a four month old, eight pound Flemish Giant rabbit. 


Poppy was dead set against getting me another rabbit and my heart ached. I have missed my rabbits so much. 

So, all this started one day at line dancing class when my friend Carla asked, "if I get you a birthday present, can you keep it"? "Is it alive", I asked her. We laughed. I knew she meant a rabbit. "We will go bunny shopping", she said.

Anyhow, I started looking on Craiglist at bunnies for sale, and also began fixing up the dirty old rabbit lot...and all the while dropping hints to Poppy.

Oh friends, look at this ad from Craigslist...this is now my bunny's papa. Have you ever seen anything so cute?


I had the found the perfect bunny! But, these rabbits were in Havelock NC near the coast, a three hour drive away. 

So here's how it all turned out...Poppy threw me a $100.00 bill and said Happy Birthday. I thanked Carla for getting the ball rolling. I left here at 8:00 Monday morning and drove through the country to my daughter Andee's house. From there, Andee drove. She got on Hwy. 70 near her house and drove us straight to Havelock.  Got back to Louisburg around 3:30. Had been in the car for 7 hours. 

Carla, stopped by yesterday to see the new rabbit...and loved him! We may be going back to to get Carla a bunny.


He is a big sweet boy. I've Googled and read all about them. They are docile, very gentle and are often referred to as gentle giants. 

I'm very happy. Had a great birthday. Andee and Todd gave me a big beautiful Mum and a couple of gift cards. The four of us went out to eat together as last Wednesday was Andee's birthday. 

Well, I am bound and determined to publish this before bedtime, even though it is certainly not the best written post I've ever done. 

Thank you, if you're still here.

Love, Henny

  3. Happy Birthday dear Henny Penny! I should have remembered because it's also my grandson's birthday, his 24th. I am so glad you got another bunny. And what a bunny he is!! I think my little Cinnamon bun weighs maybe 8 oz so if we had them side by side that would be quite a picture.

    1. Thank you Willie. I do know that bunnies love to be with other bunnies...I'm working on that. :) For now, I will have to spend every free minute in the pen with Randall Rabbit so he won't get too lonely. Will be thinking about you next week...another birthday! They roll around fast, don't they?? I turned 80!!! But you are only as old as you feel, right?

  16. Happy Birthday and you received the perfect present. Randall is a BIG guy and wow those ears are awesome.

  17. Randall looks like a honey. Your really did need another giant animal------at least he is a small giant right now! But he looks pretty tall already. How much will he weight when he is grown? At 8 pounds at four months it does seem that he might get to be a biggie. You are going to be eaten out of house and home with all those big animals living with you! He does look adorable though, like a big stuffed bunny that you would buy for a toddler.

    Happy Birthday!

    1. Oh, my goodness! I just googled Giant Flemish rabbit and saw how big they get. You are going to have to add on another room so Randall can have the run of the house. I'm looking forward to seeing him as he grows to full size.

  18. Oh Happy Birthday dear Henny! And Randall Rabbit is just the cutest thing. Love those ears and that sweet little white tail. I want to hug him. And yes, you did need him. Your heart needed him and you obviously love giants!
    Blessings and hugs,
    Betsy
