If you look really closely, you’ll see this rabbit has three ears. The black ear on his left (our right) is cradling an inner white ear. It’s not easy to see in this photograph, admittedly, but exceptionally clear in person. Gorgeous, isn’t he?

    Back in 1974, my wife, Kim would come with me to the base sometimes when I worked night shift at Torrejon Air Base in Spain. She’d go to the movies or play bingo at the rec center or NCO club or whatever. One night, she went to the movies (they were 35 cents…geez) and she saw an icky bug movie called Night Of The Lepus. It was about giant wabbits (rabbits) run amok in the southwest. When she left the movie about 11 or so, she had to walk across the base to the flightline to the AGE shop where I worked. This was crawling over steam pipes and across the occasional empty field in the dark. She got the crap scared out of her when she ran across a warren of jackrabbits! The ran all over the place in front of her. I think she ran the rest of a half mile to the shop and had thistles stuck to her pants (they were the only weeds the sheep that the Spaniards grazed there wouldn’t eat). When she came into the equipment yard, I saw she was freaked. She “splained” and it was a great story to tell.

      My favorite Buffy the Vampire episode is still the one in which the demon character reveals a deep and abiding fear of rabbits.
