    2. Hope you had a good Easter and have enjoyed your week of beating Hank to number one. Although he hit number one on my blog today and was very excited about it.

    3. Haha thanks for the heads-up, Alex. Yes, I had a good Easter. Still needed to work a couple of hours but much less than a year ago.

  2. What? no eggs at all
    The island might fall
    And I hope that is an ear
    And not another gear
    Sticking on out
    Like a jumping trout
    Are they sticking their tongue out at me
    Or is that just a tooth spree
    They are white and sparkly
    A dentist they see?

    1. No eggs in sight
      That can't be right
      As that gear
      Comes near
      Have no fear
      It's just an ear
      Pretending to be a shark
      Won't even bark
      Your dirty mind sees thing that aren't there
      Will it be with hair at your lair
      I read your post
      From coast to coast
      Gave me quite a scare
      A tooth it is
      A bit of bunny bizzz

    2. Good to know
      Just my dirty ind on what's below
      Or maybe it's bad to know
      What do I care though
      No eggs in sight
      I guess not fertile is a plight
      Tell those bunnies they need to mate
      And not be shark bait

      Delete
    3. Your dirty ind? Where is that one located, I wonder... You want me to tell a couple of giant bunnies to mate? What do you think will happen next?

      Delete
    4. I guess my ind
      Is near the top
      Outside not in you'll find
      If they mate more ears may flop

    5. Your ind is near the top
      Where all things stop?

  3. Bunnies menacingly real
    On an island so sunny
    No decorated eggs so surreal
    Only blue colored cuties

  4. I flew right near Easter Island when I went to Papeete, Huahine, and Bora Bora in French Polynesia.

    I am sure that from the sky the island looked nothing like pictured here....
    but that is probably just due to viewing it from a distance ;-)

    1. You have been to.... Bora Bora!!
      I'm!
      Not!
      Jealous!
      At!
      All!
      Bora Bora... You... actually went... to... Bora...

      No, the Island you were gazing at from a distance isn't the real Easter Island. Someone just put a few statutes there to deceive future tourists in an attempt to preserve the real deal. It all makes perfect sense when you think about it.

      Delete
    2. LOL! That does make sense ;-)

      Yes, I have been to Bora Bora. My husband's aunt is a citizen of French Polynesia. She lives in Huahine. Since we were visiting her in Huahine it made perfect sense to get a thatched roof hut (Fare) on a beach in Bora Bora. I have photos to prove it, but they are a bit racy being bikini clad on Bora Bora and all...

      Delete
    3. The Cat and friends have been talking about going to Bora for years now:
      HERE the Cat betrayed us.
      HERE the Cat portrayed me as a Bora liar. (It's quite shocking, I know.)

      Bikini clad.... Sure, rub it in haha!

      Delete
    4. hahaha poor blue can't get over it
      Such a liar with his Bora fit
      Bikini clad is a ok
      Sure it won't cause any dismay lol

      Delete
    5. *Gasp* I am appalled at Cat's betrayal.

      I would not betray,
      here is evidence of my Bora Beach stay.

      Delete
    6. CAT! you know I can't get over it. Mongo (AKA The Batcat wanna-be) feels the same way. So, you like bikini clad... There's a surprise.

      Hi Lauren... Did you see that? Did you see what he wrote, that furry traitor? And he keeps coming back to rub it in too. Thanks for the evidence. Bora looks good on you. I know you would never betray your friends. But that cat... THAT CAT!

      Delete
    7. The cat would betray
      And run far away
      He can be bought
      But it would take a lot
      Bora in all its glory
      But that's another story

      Delete
    8. He can be bought you say?
      Well, it does make sense at my bay
      From now on I can be bought too
      May the bidding begin at my shoe

    9. lol but don't go cheap
      Make the bank account run deep
      Then take the dough
      And umm ho ho ho?

    10. Deep sounds like a plan
      You will be the man
      Even if you're a cat

    11. Rich you say?
      Is such a word here to stay?

      Delete
    12. Wish I could turn words into gold
      And riches untold

  5. Happy Easter Blue..I wonder why it is called Easter Island? Some strange events have happened on that soil and who actually carved those statues and what exactly does it symbolize? A sacrificial offering of some sorts. I do like your version much better all those blue bunnies with such big teeth and it looks like one is trying to get away..a bunny shark perhaps??? You know bunnies like to be fruitful and multiply. A symbol of creation...

    Hmm..Did the cat make it to Bora Bora :-( ...haha...well at least one of one us made it there...

    have a great day Blue..

    ps - Why does one bunny have white hair among all the dark hares?

    1. the white haired one must be Grandpa Bunny Blue...

    2. Easter Island is a prime example of human vanity and aggression. They destroyed all the trees that the island once boasted and then themselves, well, pretty much. Let's call it Earth on a smaller scale. I reckon a reboot is in order. It was discovered on Easter Day in the early 18th century.

      The white haired bunny is me, being fed up with the idea of never making it to Bora.

      Yeah, one is trying to escape. On second thought, THAT one would be me.

      Delete
    3. That is true Blue, they destroyed their own island and civilization. I think it is best to leave that island and swim to friendlier shores..swim blue..swim...I read up on this today as I wanted to know where the name originated from and sure enough someone discovered it on Easter. Can something really be discovered if it already existed?

      Delete
    4. Swimming! I agree. It was already there, but vanity demands we call something our discovery.

    5. The white haired bunny is me, being fed up with the idea of never making it to Bora.

      Then why don't you make your own Bora Bora right there where you are??

      ... and just imagine... had Bora Bora been where the Japanese attacked on December 7th isntead oof Pearl Harbor, they could have used the code words, "Bora Bora Bora" instead of "Tora Tora To..."

      Well.. you get it...

  12. One poor bunny fell in the drink. That left an unlucky number for a mystery week-end. Wasn't there an old movie, "And then there were none," or something like that. It was for a mystery week-end and they kept disappearing or getting bumped off, one at a time. Who will be next? Oh, I don't know, but it it lingers in my memory. Easter is winding down as the sun slowly shrinks or sinks in the west, one or the other. Have you eaten all your eggs or do you like the little marshmallow chicks? There's a good opening line for you.

    1. Good thing the bunny is merely impersonating a shark in an attempt to scare all the other ones. He needs some peace and quiet, you see. Can't blame him either. As a mater of fact, I've got about ten luxury chocolate eggs staring at me as I type this, Manzanita, so I'm keeping this one short. Thanks for the opening line.

  13. Cool island but those faces won't encourage visitors. Please tell me that other bunny is taking a dip and not a dive. Happy Easter Blue!

    1. 'Visitors beware! You might get eaten alive!' They don't even need to put up a sign that tells us to be very... very careful. That other bunny is impersonating sharp, is all. I don't think the others are impressed.

  15. The big one's so angry. I do enjoy the drawing. Oh, and I maintain I'm right about the remake phenomenon, and you remaking Easter Island and the positive response it has engendered only strengthens my argument. (Can you tell I like arguing?)

    1. The big one has had it with the other ones. Plus he doesn't care much for tourists. Ha you remain what needs to be remained but the Easter Island is this picture is not a reboot (I repeat: not a reboot) because it's the real one. There are clues. But I like your observation nevertheless. I'm kind that way :p

  16. Those are some seriously scary looking bunnies. The ears look like insect wings, they could take off flying at any moment. Could they be sitting on a chocolate brownie? Are they edible... like peeps? I've never seen the tropical blue bunnies, only heard rumors of how they eat women and sh*t little jelly beans. Is that true Blue?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Edible? Well, considering some of those bunnies are about 30 feet tall, I'd say you need quite an appetite. A chocolate brownie... Sure why not. Count me in when you start digging in. Little jelly beans? LITTLE? I'd duck if I were you. And that's the truth.

  28. Hey Blue Grumpster--

    How are u doing my friend across this big blue ocean?

    Professor and I are well.

    I took him to a dog park that we are getting off the ground in South Memphis (the poorer section of Memphis). I have a friend whom has been trying to get this off the ground for three years. Unfortunately, he got depressed and let it go. Even to the point he stopped taking his dogs there. And he lives a few houses down. But it is on track again. And the Professor loves to run. As he is getting fluffy, it is good for him.

    I have my moments with Robert's memories but it gets better and better.

    I am moving into a smaller studio. How much smaller can I get? 276 feet. I love it. I may have to move into a little bigger one for a short while but my prayer is the smallest as I don't want to move twice. I have been decorating it on paper. I will have to let go of a few pieces of furniture. But this is what I have wanted. I am almost 50 years old. And I have to make changes and arrangements for the rest of my life. This is closer to my day job. One mile. As well as I can walk to the Coffeeshop. A few of my friends already live here. And u can go on the rooftop and see all of Memphis practically. Is is in what we call Midtown. The grocery store is just a block away. The theaters and playhouses are just a blocks away. And Overton Square which is restaurants, bars and music is just a few blocks away. As well as a good number of parks, the zoo, the Brooks Museum, etc. I will be moving June 30th or thereabouts. I never totally unpacked from when I let Diana move in so just have to tweak it a little bit more. I am looking forward to it. It will be cheaper and that means I can go back to school and finish. Hooray!!!

    1. Good to hear from you again, Miss Marples. Oh I'm doing okay. Not great but okay. Been working day and night. I don't even have time to visit all my blogger friends. Hello Professor! Good to know he's doing fine. Getting fluffy... how about that. I bet he's a happy dog. No bills to pay and someone who thinks the world of him.

      Memories... painful and pleasant... we need them both to appreciate them. No pain without happiness, no happiness without pain. We were made that way. Darkness and light, right and wrong.

      276 feet... Well, home is where the heart is, right? Comfy and cosy. My home is about 900 but since I'm not blessed with normal neighbors, I can assure you size doesn't matter. Sending the cops on their butts once a week. You're almost 50... I'm almost 45... Seems to me we're still spring chickens ;) But I hear ya. I need to make a couple of changes too.

      Good to hear you're looking forward to moving to your new home. Going back to school too? Is that a fact? Oh my... if I were on FB I'd give you a thumbs up ;) Excellent news. Angie is going back to college too.

      Delete
    2. Tax College. I remember. Soon soon soon y'all will be able to go to Bora Bora.

      We are only as old as we think we are. Someone commented the other day "You only look to be in your 30's. Are you serious?" Well what can I say I have good genes and I'm fluffy which helps the wrinkles.

      Rainy weekend coming up. I have opera to volunteer at tonight and two tomorrow plus a dog rescue in the a.m.

      All is well. Just moving right along. U are right we need happiness and sadness to appreciate the happiness.

      Sorry that u are not feeling well. U are such a positive and tough cookie.
