Rabbit (86/365)


"I don't see much sense in that," said Rabbit.
"No," said Pooh humbly, "there isn't. But there was going to be when I began it. It's just that something happened to it along the way."
~ Winnie the Pooh

TIME: 10:30 AM
PLACE: Podunk Illinois

Rabbits have invaded Podunk! The Chamber of Commerce is hosting our annual "Rabbit Run" to support funding for our summer Community Festival. Businesses are displaying painted wooden rabbits throughout Podunk.

Of course, there is a contest involved. Podunk-ites can get a map with the locations listed,
have their map stamped at the various businesses and then submit it to the chamber office to register for the $100 chamber gift certificate drawing.

This rabbit is hanging out in front of the library.

There are times when living in a small town - with a population about the same as the number of kids attending most Chicago High Schools - is difficult. And there are times when the sense of community we have here overshadows all of the negativity.
