Writing is like being able to put life into a snow globe. It takes the things that are too big and scary and reduces them into a form that I can put away when I want and look at from a distance. It also takes all that’s good in life and captures it into something I can take out when I want and look at close up and keep forever. It makes the bad things into something I can hold…and the good things into something I can hold onto. Both help so much that I need that little souvenir of life.

Happy Halloween Stuff from Around My House: More Dog Toys and More Scary Bunny Rabbits

“Scary Bunny” is, of course, my dog’s favorite toy and has been since this Christmas gift from my truly thoughtful sister-in-law was unwrapped. The squeaker seems to be unkillable. And I’m sure he likes the very thing we hate: it looks too much like a real rabbit. Since it’s easiest for him to grasp across the back, he often puts it down sitting upright. The result is that we’re startled by what appears to be a stray form of wildlife that’s wandered into our home. Angry, vengeful wildlife. You’ll sneak and put it away—ever so quietly—and then you’ll wake up in the morning to see it next to your bed…watching you. It is the Chucky doll of dog toys. I had a terrible time photographing it since the dog stood by, worrying that I was committing acts of vengeance. As you scroll down, be sure to mentally play in your head some “Psycho” sound effects. And happy Halloween…wahahaha….

Watch the original scene here:

That's the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodent you ever set eyes on ….That rabbit's got a vicious streak a mile wide! It's a killer!. ~Tim, Monty Python and the Holy Grail


  1. OMG, Tammy! That's hilarious! I can just see Buddy walking around with "it" in his mouth!! But, also.... yes, I'm very afraid....very afraid!!!

  2. LOL, what an imaginative post. I'd have to at least buy that rabbit new eyes :D

  3. Thanks, Becky and Jules! Trust me--those eyes are scarier in person than a camera could capture. It is one angry-looking bunny!

  4. What a hoot! I have that same rabbit in the toy box, keep it buried so the kids can't find it. The eyes are wicked.

  5. My goodness...That last photo sent shivers down my spine. You can see the evil in that rabbit's eye. Destroy it! Destroy it now, before it destroys you, and everyone else in your house! (ha) I really enjoyed the different angles and the last close-up. Very cool.

  6. Linda, that is too funny!

    Sioux, the only thing worse than a rabbit with evil eyes is a dog with pitiful ones! We must suffer, I'm afraid. Trying to be strong.


Any return "messages" are appreciated!
