I drove for two hours to take my mom out for lunch today and she had her pants on backwards.

I'm glad bluejeans have a zipper in the front. That reduces the chance of me doing the same. :)

I had my boxers on backwards the other day. Tried to take a piss and kept fumbling for the slit in the fabric only to find there wasn't one - it was near my ass.

You're not supposed to put them on your head Matt.

We had baby bunnies at 2 Rivers Cider's tasting room yesterday. One of the women who helps the owner's wife when she cooks her Honduran cuisine had a rabbit give birth to 13 babies so she brought a few to see if she could give them away. I think three of the five or six found new homes. Darling little creatures with such soft fur. We fed them cabbage and carrots while drinking ciders and delighted in their uber cuteness.

Baby bunnies at a tasting room? I thought there was a rabbit recipe coming along there.

We were having a drink in a friend’s garden last night and two skunks were spraying all over the garden. They are beautiful little things but my god they stink.

"H is for Hawk"? I read that a couple years ago because I've always been keen on birds of prey. I never realized how much maintenance they require to stay healthy, though! Good book.

Yes, H for Hawk. I enjoyed the language, and the very involved and intricate descriptions of the countryside, but about halfway through if not before it just dawned on me how the whole process doesn't sit well with me at all. The hawk has to be cajoled, bullied, isolated, continually exposed to frustration to make it obey. At the same time, I really loved the descriptions of domesticity - them both in the TV room in the evening with her watching telly while the hawk sat nodding. But, you always sensed there was no connection, not like human and a dog, or whatever. I read the line about her running after the rabbit and shoving a knife into its head with some alarm.

There's something glorious about having that connection with something so wild- that website I have sent you as an example of our pals and their relationship with raccoons, foxes etc. But at the same time, it's difficult for an animal lover who enjoys pretending nature isn't as it actually is (me) as invariably you have to watch nature as it literally eats itself. We take animals up to a local wildlife rescue place at least a few times a year. Pigeons, squirrels, tiny possum babies (wriggling pink sausages taken in a box on their dead mother's body) and most recently, a rat that I found with it's head caught in a trap. They nursed it back to health, and yet at the same time the staff at the rehab center have to be able to tempt injured birds of prey with tiny rodents to make sure they can fly before they are released. I don't know how people can do it. I'm glad they do, I'm just glad it isn't me.

We spent Mother's Day weekend in San Antonio. Mother of Baron wanted to have dinner at her local kosher place, and the menu looked lovely. We all got gussied up and when we got there, the place was deserted and they told us they stopped doing dinners and breakfasts some time ago. Wine and beer was advertised, but they didn't do that any more either. So we ate falafel from paper plates. Having said that, it was delicious. On Sunday we had a lazy stroll round a local natural history museum, with more taxidermy than you could shake a stick at. I don't know how you manage to stuff a bee, but they bloody did it.

Meanwhile, I bought this book written by our erstwhile Parisian BCBer. It's cool.

I drove by a church yesterday that was dog friendly. They had a big sign that said "bring your dog to church."

Thanks Maarts, sure hope so too, and I should be! My plan is to head back to Brissy and join the fam. when my contract here in HK ends in early August, so the countdown has begun.

Our cat got in a fight with a skunk in our garden last night. He has a scratched nose but is otherwise very pleased with himself as miraculously didn’t get sprayed. The garden smells dreadful though.
