So...no pressure this year. [Smile]

Every time you remind me you're a year younger, Tom, is like a dagger in my heart.

And get off my lawn.

When you reach the fourth year of your animal, so age 48, that is supposedly going to be the very best one for you.

So you deleted the post, thus making it look like I was dissing my own bunny icons.

Wow. Watership Down quote made me feel warm and fuzzy inside. [Smile]

I have fond memories of reading that book, and one bad memory that really stands out to me.

*warning - tangent ahead*

So, I read this book as a sixth grader. My teacher asked me what I was reading and I told her. She said "That's the one about rabbits, right?"

Now, as an immature sixth grader, I still knew the book was about a lot more than rabbits. I didn't have the vocabulary or sophistication to articulate that it was symbolic of so much else - it's about community, the true meaning of leadership, etc. I tried to say this, and started by saying "well, it's not really about rabbits..." and I was cut off by my teacher who responded "you must not have read it then, because it's definitely about rabbits." [Frown]

She was my sixth grade English teacher, and I really wanted to impress her because it was my favorite class and I loved to read. Had she been patient and listened to me, she had a wonderful teaching opportunity to help me gain some of the vocabulary and knowledge to express my thoughts. Instead, she hurt my feelings and I returned the book to the library without finishing it.

I did finish it later, in high school. Still love the book. And it was a beneficial experience for me, because now as a teacher I think about that often and try to show patience...and LISTEN. Sometimes my students know more than they are able to express.

Watership Down is one of my favorite books. I remember seeing the cartoon when I was a kid, but I don't really remember much about it. I read the book when I was maybe 30. General Woundwort is one of the most frightening literary bad guys I've ever read. I think because he's built up so much before he makes his first appearance. Then when he does, it's such a tense situation, that I was genuinely frightened.

If you use the CODE tag, it displays in a fixed-width font:

code:
       ________   ________    _________  ____________;_
- ______ \ - ______ \ / _____ //. . ._______/
/ / / // / / //_/ / // ___ /
/ / / // / / / .-'//_/|_/,-'
/ / / // / / / .-'.-'
/ / / // / / / / /
/ / / // / / / / /
/ /_____/ // /_____/ / / /
\________- \________- /_/

When you Google ASCII art, btw, the Google logo changes to this:

code:
 / __|___  ___  __ _| |___ 
| (_ / _ \/ _ \/ _` | -_)
\___\___/\___/\__, |_\___|
|___/
