When I was a kid, maybe 8 or so, my mom made this stew for supper. Looked like chicken, then we found out that it was my friend Patty's rabbit, Rose. She was pure white with pink eyes. They raised rabbits, but I just thought they really liked lots of pets and that's why they had them. Complete fallacy. They were selling them off to friends and neighbours. I was traumatized. Poor Rose.
Susan!!!!! Holy moly you're preggers! That's awesome, and a HH9M!!!
Rabbits are fascinating creatures. I could never keep them as a food animal. They are very smart, they can have incredible personalities, they bond with their owners much like a dog does, and they can be trained to use a litter box. If you keep them outside, they need a large enclosed space because, as rodents, they will attract a variety of predators, but they need plenty of room to roam to stay healthy. You wouldn't want to eat a sick rabbit.
When I was a kid, my mom raised some chickens which my sister & I thought were pets. After she killed them, I refused to eat any chicken for a long time. And my sister would count the packages in the freezer and only eat if there wasn't one missing.
David Letterman is retiring. Such great memories of watching him over the past thirty-two years!
Poor Rose. I definitely couldn't eat anything with a name!
Susan - thank you! And I know I already congratulated you, but congrats again! How are you feeling so far?

Laurie, ((((hugs))))...I've had days like that where things just never flow and I feel like I'm not really in my body...if that makes sense.
Dh is currently attached to his new toy - he won a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 at work yesterday! I'm a wee bit jealous . We've had weird weather here lately. Lots of rain, about 400% humidity, and we're expecting severe storms tonight. The sun is out now, so it's probably baking outside.
