Commencement 2010

Dear Attentive Reader,

Well, it is graduation time again, and, as I have not been asked to give any commencement speeches, I would like to give some advice here, in my blog, to all the recently coined alumni.

First, let me say that it is I, Harriet, hosting the blog today. Once in a while I do get off the new chaise and make my way to the computer. (Though computers aren't really my forte, and this one makes a very loud electronic whooshing sound which gets under my apron.)

Here are three small jewels for you to take home to your own chaise and cogitate at your leisure:

From Mrs. Beeton's Kitchen:
1. Dirty saucepans filled with hot water begin to clean themselves.

From Our First President:
2. Be not immodest in urging your Friends to Discover a Secret.

And from my favorite writer, Eudora Welty:
3. A sheltered life can be a daring life as well. For all serious daring starts from within.

And finally, a picture by the elder weasel, which demonstrates an attitude of great openness which all alumni should endeavor to cultivate in the big, wide world.

Until the next,
I remain,
your trusted rabbit,
and good friend,

Weasels Take Up Entomology

Hello Readers and Happy June,

You will be interested to know that the weasels have taken a great interest in bugs. Will the insect world benefit?

The younger weasel is particularly interested in the butterfly and has illustrated the insect's varied career:


The elder weasel has been studying bugs in some sort of laboratory she set up:

Have a closer look:

It does not appear to me that this bug is doing well. What do you think?

Shall we call the ASPCB?

Harriet says we should take that contraption away from the weasels and keep them indoors. She has not always been treated respectfully by the weasels. Nor have I, for that matter. Nor have I.

And on the subject of bugs, Harriet would like to mention the passing of a good friend of hers, Louise Bourgeois. Louise was a great lover of insects and was also very old.

And with that, dear reader, I leave you.

Wishing you a lovely June,
in harmony with bugs,
we remain your
Good Friends,
Harriet and Mickey
