Rabbit Fencing Season forces the reluctant into the outdoors. They'll be having their puppies soon enough, adorable little, soft eared creatures, bumbling around in that innocent way, but absolutely ruthless when it comes to nibbling and soon enough they'll be scattered amongst the undergrowth looking for gaps in fences. It must be a game they play, Find the Gap and Win an Egg.
Nor was it just the outdoors in January that turned Rabbit fencing season ugly.
I wasn't able to approach the task in the certain knowledge that a little light
exercise, checking the knees to see if they still worked, would all combine to
produce that sense of purpose that enables a body and mind to prepare for
Digging Season. My sole comfort, it wasn't a wall.
