My New Friend

Hi Pals,

Life without a pet just wasn't going over well with me.....specifically, life without a bunny was dull. So, I am bunny-less no more! I picked up an 8 week old Holland Lop yesterday (pictured above). He will get to be about 4 to 5 pounds as an adult. His name.....Alfie - yes, after Daniel Alfredson, my second favorite Ottawa Senator. You know my favorite, don't you? I considered calling the bun Little Mike, but he seemed more of an Alfie to me.
Right now Alfie is laying on my couch - already very spoiled!!
I pray everyone has a good week in the Lord and I pray we all have the grace to keep our eyes on Jesus.

Awwwww, Alfie is such a cute bunny! He looks so adorable! Give him an extra pat and hug from me, Little Missonary, and keep a hug and kiss from me for yourself, okay?!

Rejoicing with you,

PS I think that's a great name for a pet! I used to think it was silly to name pets after people, bu I named two kittens we rescued Jussi, for the Oilers goalie, and Havi, for Havi Vasquez. Oh, and I named a puppy Roy for Roy "Red" Storey, who died 3 days after the puppy was born (we waited a long time to name that poor pup).

Go habs go - I hope it's okay that I'm cheering for them now :) Wish they would have rapped it up last night but maybe it's better to do that on home ice!

I've got this awful feeling that they are going to lose! Isn't that terrible? I actually prayed for them to come back from being down 3-1 against Boston back in 2004, and THEY CAME BACK...and now the tables look like they might be turned. I'm going to have to call up my best friend...she used to be a big Boston fan, but I THINK she left hockey...or maybe not and that's why her team is doing well!

Oh me of little faith...I sure hope the Habs win. Maybe Pilgrim will post on the Canadiens then...that would be a treat! He has got to know one of them...Gainey's from Peterborough, he could post a little something on him even.

God bless you,

PS My siblings have been selling Habs flags, and they've sold 45 since's crazy here! They've also found out there are a lot of negative people, and a lot of Bruins fans!

Dear Julie LM,
Alfie is a real charmer.
I sure hope you'll share lots and lots of happy moments.
You've made a wise choise and I am glad on your behalf.
