encounter, storm, roofers

Posted by Picasa No fewer than four children were accompanying this rabbit, which in the distance I, at first, mistook for some sort of dog, on a walk in the Grove.

Last night, as the air grew sponge-like in its humidity, there was a majestic thunder storm.Lightening was almost continuous and the thunder irrupted overhead with ear-splitting claps. You might have used the phrase "shock and awe" if hadn't belonged in a less natural context.

A thin strip of green roofing felt is all that remains for the roofers who have been working on the house round the corner for the last four weeks, to cover with tiles.

The following is taken from the Belmont Rural website (ed: Barrett Bonden).

About 8.30 on a late September evening. An approaching woman on Northolme Road is accompanied by the smallest dog imaginable. But it isn't a dog! It's a ferret! Quick tip for potential ferret walkers. A collar won't be secure enough for that sinuous neck. You'll need a special mini-harness

Why does the rabbit look so angry?

I enjoyed the variety of comments in your post - and definitely the rabbit!

Mr Rabbit writes: "Why so angry? Wouldn't you be angry?Can't a rabbit have a little dignity and privacy, without some geyser pointing a camera at him?

Joyce thought the rabbit was planning its escape and likes rabbit photos - especially this one. Hope the back mends soon.
