"Didn't the fox never catch the rabbit, Uncle Remus?" asked the little boy the next evening.
"He come mighty nigh it, honey, sho's you born--Brer Fox did.
(from, The Wonderful Tar Baby Story, as narrated by Uncle Remus)
Mighty nigh but not quite, eh Uncle Remus!!
Meet my my newest excuse for not showing you any new work... 10 feeds per day and some serious supervision so he doesn't go AWOL from his temporary new mummy until he's big enough to fend for himself. In the mean time - he runs fast, so I am getting lots of exercise in the back yard ;-)
When we are not rescuing 3 week old rabbits, we are setting fire to the dangerous pirate ships* that sail to 'La Rivière' to bomb us with chocolate fudge cake...
I shall pop over to catch up on and admire all of your latest adventures this evening. For now, it's time to make hay while the sun shines, feed 'Chanceux' ('Lucky') who has become my shadow, and sneak in a few brush strokes while he's between feeds.
*The super duper mega cool 'successful' version of this pirate cake comes from the blog 'Chapter 40' which you can find on my sidebar. I have to race off so can't put in the link till later. In the mean time - go have a look through her February and March posts where you'll find out how to make it.
