Nasty old stories are not good for a group, everyone falls silent. So tell us another story, anyone, preferably a happy garden story. My garden has gone to seed, the heat dried everything out and I couldn't bring enough water.

No, Joan, there was no cookie person in my life, thanks to religious isolation. I made a habit from a very early age to be as invisible as I could be,because I feared my family's derogatory remarks. As soon as I could read I took shelter in books and learned to think and study my surroundings without letting anyone know what I did. I yearned for animals, a cat! but within two months they gave away the kitten I had begged for. And my parents were very disappointed that they couldn't get rid of me into a home for the blind...   I prefer your stories about your three toddlers.

I spent yesterday pouring boiling water on ant hills. I had cleaned the coffee and tea pots and started with that water. I don't know why I hadn't thought of it before. Putting the water through the pots makes it much safer to carry outside. And it doesn't fill the house with unneeded moisture.

Kathy, thanks for the information about black rabbits.
I don't think I want to raise any at this time. If I decide to, I'll probably get one from a rabbit farm. I suspect there's less chance of disease that way.

Spud, that's my kind of weather. It's still hot here. With a chance of rain which we need now. Getting dry. To dry.

Spud, a black rabbit is tame as far as I know. Probably the reason it lets you get close. The love hay and clover. And they can't crossbreed with wild ones. We had miniatures for a few years. It probably has a den underground close by. Rabbits are one of the most expensive pets to keep food wise. So a lot of people tire of them and let them loose in the wild.

Thanks, Chris. I wonder if you have some stories o share. I know you were in a dysfunctional family. Did you find solice in books, daydreaming, or did you have a "cookie person"?

When I worked at the boys' ranches, I could usually tell if a boy had a cookie person at home, a relative, neighbor, mailperson, someone who listened and comforted the boy.

Yes, Joan, I think your three little rascals were a little smarter than bunnies.

Nice stories, Joan!

Spud, so you know how to raise rabbits! Great. Don't let that treasure get away from you. 

P.S. the rabbits never got out of the wire fencing but my three little rascals did.
