As the stalemate drags into the New Year, this also affects the magistrates of the neighboring edifice. Mister John and Miss Jill cannot understand why both parties cannot compromise in any detail. Both parties claim that the two humans are either supporting or hindering their positions. Cherry Bugg claims that she never receives apple sauce when she is inside while Princess Jane claims not to have her cage and never gets to sleep on the same bad as Miss Jill and Mister John at night. (Miss Jill and Mister John could not be reached for comment about either accusation.)
Currently the edifice merely hosts "lesser" dignitaries such as Ruby Jane and Root Beer Float. The ever-hungry Root Beer Float currently is sitting in the den cage eating every last pellet in the food bowl; conversely, Ruby Jane camouflages herself behind the brown curtain and rests patiently on the grey tile floor. Neither of them have any comment. Personally, I think they are both anarchists who want neither candidate to succeed and leave all the carrots, grass, and hay to them.
Ironically, Root Beer Float wishes everyone a Happy New Ear!!!

Quite possibly all of the indoor animals (Clifford, TV Turtle, Sharkey, etc) might get their own vote. Or there might just be a split leadership. Considering Princess Jane and Cherry Bugg do not seem to get along well, this might be a difficult decision.
Clearly there will be a recount. Hopefully cooler heads and lucky feet will prevail.

Mister John and Miss Jill were not around to keep an eye on election fraud. They kept Clifford the Big Red Dog in charge. He was quoted as saying, "No potty on the bed" whatever that means.
Ensure your vote counts: get it in by 11:00pm.

Remember: Bunny Election Day is the same day as the one for those humans. Thump the vote!

"I think it's all about the carrot economy," said an anonymous white rabbit with black spots and a curious orange discoloration under her chin. "I will choose the rabbit that gets me more carrots. And if that has to be Mr. John or Miss Jill than I might have to choose them.
Another rabbit with brown fur also added to the discussion, "I fear for my safety sometimes. I think others are out to get me and bite my butt. I really need a new leader who will protect me from that. I have a very sensitive fluffy tail.
While most of the day the discussions were civil, some arguments did arise over which rabbit would get the most food and which rabbits would get to run around on Sunday. Furthermore, indoor visitation rights in the winter also seem tantamount. Ultimately the rabbits thumped, flopped, ate dead leaves, and promised to resume discussion next Sunday.

School has begun again for Mr. Erb and the WOME is happily back to her wedding planner ways.
In August she and I went to the Grand Canyon and hiked all around it. No pics currently but I do believe she downloaded some. As soon as I get some of those, I shall put them on the site. Furthermore we trekked through many a mudpile at 7,000 feet above sea level. Odd thing about Arizona: they receive all their rain in August. Especially northern Arizona. It just came down everywhere!
Later on we did make it to Sedona for a good ol' fashioned jeep ride amidst the relaxation there. Nothing like having not a care in the world and just watching random Olympic events and worrying about what you'll have with your dinner.
Alas, it is school time again for me so the sophomoric minions are back. They seem to be a nice lot this year but we'll see. Hopefully none of them thump like my rabbits. Oh, those rabbits!!! I'll save that for another post.

As it is, Phillip and Jane were quite upset today. As you already know, they both come from royal lines of rabbits. They truly believe in the divine right of rabbits. Thus, that whole presidential primary season has completely confounded, bemused, and upset them. Princess Jane cannot understand why people would ever select on of their own common kindred to try and lead. I do remind Jane that if I don't give her any carrots then I am her true sovereign. Of that she is not amused.
Odd note: rabbits don't like zucchini. I never knew that. We grew some in the front yard and gave a piece to Root Beer Float. RBF is truly a garbage disposal; yet she wouldn't even touch it.

To throw out a few more pics for our starving audience (sorry that it's been over a month, we slack sometimes), here is a typical road sign to our left. Quite manic and do recall that the first place name is in Irish. On the right here are two lambs who resemble Root Beer Float and Ruby Jane. I wonder if their temperments are as similar too.
Over to your left (keep walking), you will see a street sign. We were searching for John Street as our B&B in Dingle was on it. We drove all around town trying to find our place which was just "outside of town." So technically, driving through town did not help; but it did help to get to the other side of the "outside of town." If you catch my drift... I guess not. Well, shut up and keep reading.
And, yes, to the left are two alpacas and myself. Nothing quite like going to Ireland to see the native alpaca. Sometime I'll go to Peru and look for the native leperchaun. Oh, do look at the ubiquitous UCLA hat. It was a constant theme throughout the trip. Maybe not the reprezentin' the hoops team as it was to stay warm and dry in the cool windy climes of Eire.

- It's good to be on the RIGHT side of the road again
- Those roads are quite small and bumpy too
- Yes, there may be wind and rain... but it's Irish rain
- One can only drink so much tea in the morning
- Nothing like hearing natives debate the subject of Bank Holiday on the radio
That is all for now... pictures soon.

And while I have no plans on conceiving our first born in Ireland, I have pledged to a friend that we'd name "it" Clover if we did. I kid not.
John would hate the name Clover but I don't like to go back on promises!
Well, at least that's what I ordered. John learned to drive an H-column stick shift in Arizona a few weeks ago. If he can master that, he should have no problem mastering a regular stick on the wrong side of the car using his left hand, right? I guess that should be correct. But anyway.
I am off to the homestead. Dinner tonight for John's Academic Decathlon team. We'll see if I can weasel out or not! --Jill

Jane remains adamant that she won a fair election. However, Cherry Bugg claims that in the recount, she won by a margin of 108-2. Jane has questioned the validity of that claim; especially since Clifford said that he remembered voting for Jane because she has a strong policy against going "potty on the bed." Cherry Bugg declined to comment.
While Jane tends to view her rule more by divine right than people's opinions, she will gladly take the result of her supreme power over all those she surveys.
Miss Jill and Mr. John have no opinion on such matters. They leave the rabbits to rule themselves.

So happy Year of the Rabbit. Again. (Although Jane might derogatorily refer to Cherry Bugg as a RAT after that last back yard election but I don't want to go there.)

Watch out for this dog. He does not like bunnies who go potty outside of the bin and will let them know about it with a large resounding WOOF! In fact poor little Ruby Jane runs away any time she sees the menacing dog. He's quite a friendly dog but for some reason he barks at Ruby Jane. Go figure.
