Dinner with Jake, Jessy, and an Upside Down Bunny
Jake and Jessy stopped by this evening, for a dinner over at our place. The two of them were travelling in Nicaragua over Christmastime, and recently got back to the States a few weeks back. It’s been a while since we’ve hung out with them, so tonight had us all catching up a good bit.
I remember learning that Jessy used to work with animals, and used to have rabbits of her own. Next thing we know, she walks into the room with Baxter tucked into her arms – a surprising site, as I’ve NEVER seen anyone pick up Baxter, not even Liz.

I may have to give this a go on my own sometime, and see if I can get Baxter to be as relaxed when I pick her up.
After dinner, the four of us retired out to the living room for some dessert and cracked open our third bottle of wine. We had the TV on in the background, and as luck would have it we tuned in to Wilco on Austin City Limits – a nice backdrop to the evening.
