Brother Act and Sister Power

We are itty bitty cutie pies.

We are still little but no longer itty bitty, and we love each other.

We are brothers and we like to move around.

We are well behaved sisters but we have girl power.

An abbreviated Video from the Filming at the ARBA Convention in MA

Remember the filming of rabbits at the ARBA convention last October?

The 3-person team from Canada filmed various breeds at the ARBA convention.  

 There is a one-minute teaser posted on Facebook:

Three breeds of Angoras are included in this one-minute segment.  
The first rabbit appears is an English Angora, guess who? It's Annisha.
Eric appears with his French Angora.  Then another French Angora
appears, it's Gifta.   A broken Satin Angora is also included.  
Two Angoras appear in the same frame identified as "English Angoras".
Actually they are Annisha and Gifta, an English Angora and a French Angora.

Pefect Ears and Everything Else

I went to show once, two judges told my mama that I have perfect ears.

I think I have a pretty perfect face too...

… and my perfect big head and my perfect little body...  just wait for me to grow a perfect big cost as my mama Fawnalisa who won the ARBA convention BOB in 2017 and as my cousin Annisha who is currently #1 in the "Rabbit of the Year" contest.

Dyed Silk Scarf Exhibit

In the display case at the Morgan Hill Community Center there are some really beautiful silk scarves.

At the top self is this green/yellow/blue hand-dyed master piece, beautiful.

In the second shelf there are two blue green scarves, nice.

Hand dyed pink scarf and a green with patterns.   Pink is my kind of color.

These color combinations are good inspiration for dyeing Angora yarns.

The Tort Siblings

We are the tort siblings.  We look exactly like our daddy Ronaldo

We don't look anything like our mama Ellamae 

We are the brothers.

We are rough and tough, we like to do boy things, we don't want sis to get in our way.

Tears of the Pear Blossom

Our pear tree is in full bloom.

Beautiful pear blossom.

Some of the blossoms drop in the rain.

The rain drops on the blossom look like tears.

There's a Chinese pop song called "Pear Blossom Tears", visit youtube:

I'll try to translate the lyrics:

I will never regret falling in love with you,
There is no one understands me like you,
Raindrops are like the pear blossom,
Each drop is with dear value.
When we are together it's full of sweetness, 
When we are apart I dream of you,
Raindrops are like the pear blossom,
Waiting for the new blossoms to enchant you.
