Ways to discourage unwelcome visitors

Posted by episode81 on August 2, 2010

Standby to be discouraged

I live in a nice neighborhood.  Subsequently, we get quite a few visitors at our door asking for money.  Some are very creative, others not so much.  None of them are successful and some even get arrested.  We are a tough crowd in Menlo Park.

Anywho, I digress …

The meeting

Posted by episode81 on January 29, 2010

Today I decided to introduce Alan and Noodles.  On the positive side, they didn’t kill each other 🙂  However, Alan was a grump-weasel and Noodles pretended not to notice him!  I would have taken a picture, but I thought I should be ready to break up a fight just in case.  I think I can call them acquaintances now, but not friends.

When I am out and about with Alan, I make many new friends!  He is quite the magnet.  Usually, when I walk into town, I only speak to the guy in Starbucks to order my coffee and morning bun and that’s it.  With Alan, I get to chat with at least 6 new people.  There doesn’t seem to be a common thread connecting them apart from the fact that they think Alan is cute.  He is 🙂  Alan’s fan club is split evenly between men and women which surprised me.  I have actually made some useful business connections along the way – the Chihuahua mafia 😉

Anywho, I digress …

Sneezy Noodle

Posted by episode81 on December 16, 2009

Ah. Ah.. Ah... Choo!

I mentioned before that Noodles lost his dewclaws due to my incompetence as a Noodle parent.  Well, it appears that I remain incompetent 😦

Before I dropped him at Save-A-Bunny, Noodles was sneezing every now and again.  It seemed to coincide with when he went under the bed, so I assumed it was a dust allergy.  What a boob!

It would have been funny if Noodles was allergic to dust bunnies though  🙂

Anywho, I digress …

Fast work Noodles!

Posted by episode81 on December 4, 2009

Today Noodles returned to Save-A-Bunny to meet some single ladies/laddies 🙂  I thought we would just drop him off and leave, but we got to stay and meet the candidates.  SaB have loads of bunnies rescued from Moreland and Easterbrook. The rescue was precipitated by the demise of many rabbits at the hands of people with no moral fiber or humanity.  There are other words I could use, but my mum might be reading.

Anywho, I digress …

Looking for love in all the right places

Chicken Noodles

Noodles is about to embark on a journey – he is going back to Save-A-Bunny.  Fear not, he is not going to stay for long!  Just long enough to find a friend 🙂

The Matchmakers at SaB are going to try and bond him with a mate. I have spent quite some time thinking about names.  Clearly I can’t decide until I meet the new cheekster, but I do like to speculate …  I initially thought the new bunny name should go with Noodles, but Chicken is a bit of a crap name to give to a sweet bunny.  If the new bunny is brown, Mango would be good.  Mango Noodles.  Not sure if that sounds tasty or ghastly.

Anywho, I digress …

The Noods

You know where you are when you've got your towel

On May 1st, I picked up my new bunny from Save-a-bunny.  He had spent his entire life in a cage – albeit a very comfy one once the fine folk at SaB rescued him.  I called him Noodles.

Noodly Jowls

It took the Noodster 6 weeks to come out of his 5ft pen loaded with special Noodly toys and tasty vegetables.  Then there was no stopping him!  I have discovered that the Noodle-Doodle likes to “taste” everything … including me.  He also likes to snuggle, on the sofa, with a towel.  The towel is his best friend.  He is constantly rearranging it to his liking.  I guess you could call it Noodling 🙂

Mr Noodles, as he likes to be called, has a splendid face.  Oh, he is cute, but what I really love are his joggly jowls!  At the risk of sounding weird, I really like joggly jowls.  I often stop to snuggle with dogs on my way into town to joggle some jowls.  When I was in Costa Rica, I spotted a cow with a huge dewlap – sort of jowls.  Didn’t get to touch them, but I tried 😉

Anywho, I digress …

Happiness is enormous jowls

Noodles 1.0

noodlesThis weekend, I spent some time at Save-a-Bunny in Mill Valley.  This is a remarkable charity that seeks out bunnies on death-row at shelters, and finds them homes with people who want one – like me.  The place is clean.  The only smell is of sweet hay – quite a feat if you are familiar with rabbits and their powerful output!

I visited on the way back from St Helena, where my friend Bob has a vineyard.  Bob worked with me at Sun.  He sold his stock before the crash (I didn’t) and now lives in St Helena, in a fabulous house surrounded by vines (I don’t).  Lucky man.  He makes the most awesome Cab I have ever tasted. There is nothing like a bottle of Bob with dinner.

Anywho, I digress …
