Now Playing: Mawmies' Day
Well, wif Yestidday being Mawmies' Day, we heer at Our Warren hadda Nice Day!
Furst ob All, dere was Us (minus Beebe-Bunny!! which was so sad. Maman is still crying sumtimes whin she enters da BunRoom and he is not heer. Dadda is moobin' Alla Us Togedder around, sodat We are Near-toda-Back-Door (where we allus are) and den Mr Mouse will be where Beebe libbed. Mr Mouse is not shure ob dis Arrangemint, onna'count obba Fakt datta Dawg swipes him wif his tail whin he comes in frum Goin' On Patrol. Ob course, da Dawg allus has swiped Mr Mouse wif his tail whin he comes in frum Goin' On Patrol, but it was just onna Udder Side, and Mr Mouse issn't shure if he likes bein' swiped onna'nudder side. Change issa funny fing most Bunnies don't wike.).
We asked Maman fora Baby Organic Carrot or sumfing when she came innu da Bun Room, so she wuld habba Furst Chance to see Our Cute, but she sed she didn't hab enny, so she gabe us each a bite obba "Triscuit" instead. But I don't wike Triscuits, so I let MissyBun hab my bite, which she, ob course, ate.
So den, Phil-da-Lad stopped by in his car and sed, "Hoppy Mawmies' Day! Can't stop, goin' toda Air Show, so how'bout we go out whin dere is no Air Show?"
And Maman sed, "You gots munny for food?"
And Phil sed he prob'ly did, and Maman sed "Prob'ly" wassn't Good Enough and gabe him sum, along wif a widdle package ob headache pills, sneezing pills and upset-tummy pills. He sed he had his anti-bee-sting-stuff, but "Fank You" and he wuld keep dis udder stuff in his car, Just In Case. Which wassa Right Fing to say onna'count obba Fakt Maman is Big on "Just-in-Case".
Phil has lerned a LOT now dat he is suddinly Growed Up and become 'Tellygint, lemme tell you!
So off he wint.
Maman sed onnly a Noo-kleer strike was gonna keep him away frumma Air Show, ebben if dis wassn't Willow's-Grove. 'Parently, Willow's-Grove wassa Bestest Air Show Inna Whole Werld, till they didn't hab it enny more. Which is kinda sad. I thought it was nice that they had named a "Naval Air Station" afta Belinda' Bunny's Bestest Friend and Furst Bondmate, Willow. There can't be too menny Naval Air Stations named afta Bunnies.
Mebbe they will name da Noo Naval Air Station they are gonna build down near da Hare-Force's McGuire Field afta Our Friend, Cricket. That wuld be a Rilly Nice fing to do. She left forda Rainbow Bridge atta same time as Beebe-Bunny!! and it would be a nice fing forda Navy to name a Naval Air Station afta Our Friend, Cricket and Beebe since they hab closed Willow's Grove now. It culd be "Cricket-Beebe Naval Air Station" and they culd invite da Bloo Angels and habba Air Show there ebbery year, and they culd eddykate people aboudda Navy and about habbin HouseRabbits - atta Same Time!
It has possybillaties. Mebbe I shuld type a letter to dat Rush Holt guy (ebben though we like dat Chris Smith guy bedda) and gib him a kloo. Da Gubbermint is allus axtin' for More Munny, but they don't do it inna Rite Way. They demand and stuff. Now if they wuld promote HouseRabbits, den they wuld hab sum Cute to gib back to peoples in hextchange for munny, and dat wuld werk. But da Gubbermint has no Cute.
So ennyways, we are berry sad aboud Cricket Hardy and Beebe bof goin' toda Rainbow Bridge, but we feel comforted dat dey went Togedder. Now Beebe is back wif Ms CloverBun, and he will let Stuffie innerduce Cricket to Belinda Bunny and she will innerduce Cricket to ebberybunny else who is alreddy atta Rainbow Bridge.
Dere is no sadness where dere are Friends.
I just feel kinda sorry for Us Who Gets Left Behind. It's geddin' harder and harder for Maman to be Left Behind wif more rabbit-shaped holes in her heart.
So den, alla suddin, Sistah Beffy and Annastasia arrive!
But Sistah Beffy is sneezing like Mad onna'count obba Fakt dat she has brought a Very Preddy Red Flower-inna-pot for Maman to plant inna Memorial Gardin!
And flowers, no madder whut colour make Sistah Beffy sneeze.
And Annya has reached da age ob Sleepin' Inna Car. Maman hextplained dat it is sorta Automatic-in-babies - you wanta baby to go to sleep? - just put it inna car and drive around da block. No matter whut: as soon assa car goes innu gear, da baby goes to sleep. Sumtimes da car doesn't ebben hab to leeb da dribway. Just put it innu gear anna baby falls asleep. Maman says it werks wike Magic.
And shure enough, Annya was Sound Asleep. And Maman has dis Rool: Do Not Wake Up Babies! Nebber! "Let sleepin' babies, lie!" Maman says, and she's preddy inflexible 'bout it. You wake uppa Sleepin' Baby and she geds preddy cross wif you. Ebben da Dawg will get sent to sit onna Back Porch if he wakes uppa baby! So ebberybun inna Houz hasta walk around on tippy-toes onna'count obba Fakt Annya issa'sleep. Becos bein' da wun who Wakes Up dat Baby is gonna regret it, lemme tell you!
And Maman gabe Sistah Beffy sum noo shoos anna card dat she and Annya had made Togedder (mainly onna'count obba Fakt dat Annya is too young to know 'boutta 'puter).
And ebberybunny sed, "Hoppy Mawmies' Day!" to each udder.
You know, whin I Furst came heer, I wassa Small Bunny, a widdle wike Annya, only bigger. But I didn't habba Mawmie. I thought mebbe Belinda Bunny might be my Mawmie onna'count obba Fakt dat she was black-and-white, and I was white, and she was Big and I was Small, and she let me lie uppa'gainst her whin I was cold and skert.
But she sed, "No. I am not your Mawmie."
And then I thought mebbe me,Hunny was my Mawmie onna'count obba Fakt dat he let me lie nextest to him in his habbytat and he telled me alla'bout Da Lore.
But he sed, "No, I am not your Mawmie onna'count obba Fakt dat I am also a boy-bunny."
So I was, wike, "Who is my mawmie? I hab to hab wun. I sorta bemember dat I had wun sumwheres along da line, so where is she now?"
And so I axted MissyBun and she just wooked at me and sed, "No. I sed 'No.' You hear dat? No!"
So dat was preddy much, dat.
And den I figgered dat my mawmie hadda be Maman, ebben if she was hoomin-shaped, and not bunny-shaped at all, becos Maman cared for me alla time, and I discubbered dat I cared for her. She wassa Wun Person Who Picked Up da Liddle White Bunny who was OnAlone inside obba cardboard box left atta vet's!
So I guess your mawmie issa mawmie dat takes care ob you, whedder she wooks wike you, or issa rite age to be your mawmie or not, or whutebber. If she happins to be rewated to you, dis is good, but she doesn't hab to be - she just hasta be da person who cares aboud you, and who you care aboud.
And you don't need a Speshul Day to be nice to her. Be nice alla time. Share your Cute wif her ebben if you don't wike da Triscuits dat she has on offer, becos, afta all, she is sharin' dem wif you.
And if you gedda chance, take her to see da Bloo Angels atta Air Show atta Naval Air Station or Hare-Force Base nextest to you! Dey fly closest to Heaven, Maman says, and ennyways, no madder iffa gubbermint has no Cute, we heer at Our Warren, Support Our All Young Men and Women Servin' inna millytary
Wike Phil sed, "Ooo-rah, Bunnies! Go Navy, go!" !
