I remember one year uncle Tom came to visit us in Scotland. One night I had forgotten to close the rabbit hutch in the garden. I went into the garden to close the hutch door but I left the garden gate open and the rabbit escaped. I asked uncle Tom and the kids to come and help me get the rabbit back into the hutch. Armed with a dustbin (trashcan) lid and laundry basket we chased the rabbit around in circles for 20 mins without success. We went back into the garden and decided to call on the rabbit to come back into the garden, which it did without any problem. We could not stop laughing.
With love and fond memories,
Irene, Andrew and Kirsty.
