Sharon got the following message in her blog:
Oh, Birdchick. Now that I've delurked (um, not sure if we've ever met...allow me to introduce myself...friend of Lorraine and company from ever so long ago) anway, I've been meaning to tell you for AGES that your Disapproving Rabbit fiend, er, friend has a bit of a following amongst troops stationed in Iraq.Which reminds me, we also got a picture from Natalie:
About a year ago (not sure exactly when)Stars and Stripes published an article (from AP, I think) just inside on top second page. We got our copies printed small size (to save paper) so the cover pic didn't come out that well, but some of us got access to the online version and printed it out. The many versions I saw (recaptioned) from the operating base in Kirkuk in the North to Camp Victory in Baghdad were highly entertaining.
Cinnamon and company were great Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) bunnies!
Hi! My brother is a Marine stationed in Al Anbar province, Iraq. He and his fellow Marine buddies found this VERY disapproving bunny at the outskirts of their base and gave him some food. You can just tell that this is NOT a happy bunny.Astonishing. The idea that this silly little blog of frowning rabbits has brought some joy to people as far away as soldiers in Iraq makes all of us deliriously happy. Stay safe over there!
