I live in the middle of a city  
Earlier tonight one of my neighbours knocked on my door.

They had lost their hand-reared baby hare and were wondering if it had made its way into my yard.

Which is why this evening found me wandering around my garden and then the public gardens of Erko with my Maglight calling out 'here bunny bunny bunny!'

We're two miles from Central Station, and another two form the General Post Office. Madness!

Happily, the hare was found safe and well.

'here bunny bunny bunny!'

I knew it was ridiculous, but 'Here, hare hare hare' was worse!

You know the way you describe your home makes it sound like some kind of creative happy place - it's all nice, quirky neighbours, people in odd clothing, little chocolate shops, and random happenings.

It is a lovely spot: right in the middle of the city, but quite the village nonetheless. We even have a little green on which people play croquet and petanque. However! The Chocolate and dessert bar STILL has not opened! It's very unfair, because the coffee bar DID.

This RL story is both so cute and funny!

*hugs you, your neighbours and their bunny*

Here, bunny, bunny, bunny!

He is happily back home hopping about his hutch, and the hole in the fence has been sealed up. I want to know what they are going to do with him when he is all grown up and likes to hop very fast very far! Their garden is only a little larger than ours!

He was happily hiding under some crates but came out when apple was waved at him. Well, actually, he ignored everyone until they talked about leaving him there overnight, then hopped out to join in the chat.

And I am wondering what will happen to him when he is older and wants a good run, gardens around here are small!

At first, I read "here" instead of "hare", and thus was very puzzled both by the notion of a hand-reared baby (as opposed to intensive farming?) and by the fact of losing a baby in the neighbour's garden...

AHAHAHAHAHA! Oh dear! We're not THAT careless around these parts! (Though I once left a baby in a bookshop, but I went straight back! He was still there, it was fine.)

You know what they say, 'Hare today, gone tomorrow.'

I knew someone would go there. Thank you!

Curious: do you have random hares in your area?
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 5th, 2010 04:34 pm (UTC)
Not generally, though we did once have a fox. We're in the middle of the city, pretty much. But our neighbours found this one in the country; it was only very tiny and had lost its mother, so they took it home and have been hand-rearing it ever since.

I can SO picture you doing that. :D

Thank god bunny was found! I would have been all >:( if that story had had a sad ending!
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 5th, 2010 03:11 pm (UTC)
It would never had been told if the hare had not come home! A man came by as I was looking in the public gardens and gave me a funny look, so I told him I was looking for a baby hare and he scurried off. Mad Old Lady -- I am doing it right!

Crazy Woman with a Maglite - ur doin it pretty well akshully!

I have been known to chase after would-be housebreakers with it, which is less crazy than the time I chased after one with an axe -- though the man I chased with the axe ran much, much faster.
