I for one am glad to see this continuing now that Sue is no longer with us, though her spirit will always be in our hearts.

The vanishing rabbit by KL Caley

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a pair of comical glasses shaped like a rabbit’s ears and whiskers, the glasses are in a hedgerow.

James Stewart had Harvey, a white rabbit nobody could see but him.
Well, he might not be Harvey, but he was really annoyed that no-one could see him, so he decided to opt for some visual assistance.
The glasses were a fun idea, and he made the whiskers out of some shredded plastic.
He felt quite pleased with the effect and settled down in the ivy to wait.
There was a lot of giggling going on, so he put on his best smile but the little girls got spooked and ran away.
It was weird, but rabbits don’t lay eggs, so sitting on a small clutch was both alien and painful to his invisible buttocks.
The irony was he didn’t even like chocolate, but every year, he had to go through this rigmarole of playing the Easter Bunny and making sure nobody saw him. He wold love some recognition, just once, but it looked like it wasn’t to be.
Disappointed, he took off the glasses and whiskers and left them behind as he hopped away…………. and went smack into the knees of a little boy.
‘Hello,’ he said.
‘Um, Hi’ he replied.
‘My name’s Jimmy, what’s yours?’
In for a penny, in for a pound he thought……….
‘Harvey,’ and taking the little boy’s hand, the two walked off together.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
