The Merry Month of May has arrived! And you know what that means… make sure the first words out of your mouth (on the first day of May) are “rabbit, rabbit”. This is doubly important if your birthday occurs this month. Saying “Rabbit, rabbit” will ensure good luck all month long.
I forgot to say Rabbit! Rabbit! I can’t believe I forgot. I never forget. But I did. However, my May is not doomed! I said Tibbar, Tibbar and hopped backwards two times. Tibbar is Rabbit spelled backwards and saying it twice while hopping, is your second chance, to pay your respects to the Rabbit and reboot your monthly luck! Whew. That was a close one.
And now for a little Rabbit! Rabbit! Gallimaufry:
♥~ Darius, a continental rabbit, holds the Guinness Book of World Records title for The World’s Longest Rabbit. Darius weighs approximately 50 pounds and is 4 feet, 3 inches long. He lives a hoppy life with his owner Annette Edwards from the UK. Edwards also takes care of Darius’ son named Jeff. He’s only a year old, but he’s already a promising 3-feet-8-inches long. Edwards thinks Jeff could outgrow Darius.

I have some new ideas for Odd that I want to try out this month. Including posting about our 3 hour, early morning, city drives to pick up our camp day campers. Oh the things that we see…! And I’d like to post more about our Camp-Run-A-Pup adventures. Not forgetting El Morno, of-course. . .,may the energy be with me.
Wishing you a very Merry May!
