They went looking for rabbits...



...and came home with guinea pigs.

This happened on Sunday. Lucas has been begging for a pet rabbit so Larry took him and Alex out to find one. There were no rabbits to be had, but our neighbor did talk him into taking a group of six guinea pigs that someone had dumped on her the day before.

Alex has been busy researching their care on the Internet. Lucas is enamored. Not so enamoured that he's forgetten that we promised him a rabbit but enamoured nonetheless.

They're adorable - both the girls and the guinea pigs. Big guys! I love all animals - not so much reptiles, but my heart goes out to every furry creature. Guess that's why I like men so much. ;)

Too bad you're not in these parts. My aunt and uncle have 100 acres and keep a bunch of rabbits - Angoras and they're beautiful. Little Lucas would love them.

Cute kids, ugly hamster.

That "girl" in the foreground is Lucas. Everyone is always telling us he's a pretty girl. It drives Larry up the wall. ;-)I'd love to get some Angora rabbits and spin their hair into yarn.

Morgan said...

Mr. Nelson. Downy's feelings are hurt. She's not a hamster, she's a guinea pig. And she'd like you to know that she's lovely by prevailing guinea pig standards.

This Mr. Nelson... I think he works as a teacher at a Christian school teaching 8th graders or something, he types away....

'Cute Kids, ugly hamster.'

Then looks up from the laptop...

"Alright shut up you little bastards, you're doing an exam and I don't want to hear a thing. I've got important work to do."

Jamie, I went to a Christian school and Mr. Nelson sounds awefully familiar.
Mr. Nelson, remember me? I was the troublemaker in the third row...

Christian school girls are hoochies! Morg, you little tart!

Morgan said...

Christian school was stupid. I only tolerated it as long as I did because everyone did drugs in the bathroom. And because the headmaster used corporal punishment.

Very good Jamie. Damn, maybe I'll buy some stocks from you or something, you've got a good feel for people... but you're still the bitch on your own blog, and that my friend is sad.

I realized that about Lucas after I posted it. He's a little Cherubim. That would be neat - Angora rabbit yarn. I have a beautiful sweater dress made out of Angora rabbit hair. It's so soft. I wish my aunt was as good with crafts as you are.

I am a renaissance man. All eyez on me. You have to create a whole new category for me.

What I do is dissertation over instrumentals and the blogoshere.

Morgan said...

Mr. Nelson, you keep talking smack about JamieR and Auntie Morgan is going to have to go upside your head.

Sport may be an insolent pup, but he's nobody's bitch.

Auntie's in the house. Picture Full House (how wude) and Different Strokes (what you talkin' bout Mr. Nelson), then picture Auntie Morgan constructing a new family through the blogosphere. All it needs is a theme song...
