Well, Shelby ad I went to the feed store today to get some tomato plants, chick feed and dog food. Ended up bringing home a real nice rabbit hutch. She has a friend that got one of those little motor scooters, battery powered. I had told her she could get one when we got our taxes back. She decided she was not really interested in having a scooter, she wanted a couple of rabbits for her own. Unfortunately, Mr. Swint was out of bunnies, but he will be getting more in. We got a real nice big hutch for 139.00, already assembled. She says that she is just more interested in animals than any old scooter.
I grinned from ear to ear. Thats my girl. I told her she has a special way with animals like I do, so I was proud of her for making the decision to get the hutch and rabbits instead of the scooter. She loves her video games, but other than that, nothing else is as captivating to her as animals.
Now, we have to explain this little turn of events to Ian. Poor Ian, he does love animals, but after we told him the story of how this all came about, he just says he doesnt understand why we have to have so MANY.
I told him what in the world did he think it was going to be like when we move out to the country, I want 2 cows, 2 piggies, 2 horses, 2 goats. Why two you ask, to keep each other company, but no boy girl stuff, not right away at least, lol.
So...Shelby is going to put one of her two rabbits in the rabbit show at the Georgia Natl Fair in Perry this October. Maybe they will show chickens, and I can put one of my fine specimens in the ring. :)
Would somebody please explain to my husband the joy Shelby and I get out of all of this, either that, or give him your sympathy, :) I will forward the emails to him from y'all. :)
