So while removing the tire covers from the rig, wasn't I surprised to see something small, light brown and "critter" looking move quickly from the outside of the tire to the inside. What the heck was THAT??
I got down on my knees (way far away) and stuck my head under the rig to see if I could tell what it was. That's a feat in itself since the air bags are empty and there's only about ten inches of space.
This is what I saw ... a little dark blob between the tires. Oh good grief ..... it's a BABY BUNNY!!!
Now what do I do?? I can't move the rig with him sitting there!! Where's Momma?? While pondering the situation I placed a small cup of water nearby in case Momma didn't come back. My plan was to shoo him into a box and let him go again down by my water station in a hole I would dig underneath some cactus.
In the meantime, I drove over to the Chance Ranch to take pictures of this fabulous greenhouse Dan built .... from scratch ... by himself .... with only the plans in his head. How do people do that??
Inside is amazing with tables built all around. It's fully equipped with fans, water hoses, a drainage system, lights .... this thing has everything you need to grow stuff. As you can see by the flowering cactus and plants, they are happy campers!
My little painted rock fits in perfectly.
Patty is growing jalapeños, tomatoes, green peppers and lettuce, just to name a few.
There's even a waterfall in the corner with real live fish in it. I would probably take out the middle table and put in a lounge chair to bask in the sun on cold days, but that's just me.
Outside they have long raised beds of onions, broccoli (now gone since we ate it all) and brussell sprouts. In case of an emergency, the Chance Ranch will have veggies!!
Back home, I checked the big hole to find all those rocks had been kicked out to the driveway below. YAY!!! That probably means Momma is back and maybe ... hopefully ... she picked up baby on the way.
Sure enough, as I again laid flat and crawled under the rig, I could find no baby bunny. RATS!! That meant I had to crawl under the opposite side, just to be sure he hadn't found another hiding spot. There was no bunny to be found, so Mom must have come and collected him. YAY!!!
Today is D Day and I will be out of here shortly, that is after I check everything on my list at least three times and again make sure the bunny is gone. Otherwise I may be in for a longer stay!!
