I Am a Big Girl Now

I love this bed, it's too big for me.

I still love this bed but it seems it's getting smaller.

I am in a show, first time!  Mama tells me that I will be going to shows almost every week.

Fun Old Picture

Carolyn Silva found this old photo from the 1800s on the internet.    Looking at the equipment, there's not much change since then.   The spinning wheel looks like some of the spinning wheel that we use, the bottom table on the left looks exactly like the TV trays that we use as grooming tables.   The rabbits look like the Giant Angora.   Though no change in rabbit stuffs, the human fashion and style has changed quite a bit.
