My human has only one twos, one twos (twos) legs, doesn't think like us and he has been called weirds. I like that in a familys man. He is stubborns like me. He likes his beer dark. He could be called an Eclectic Peeps. Most of all, he loves me and I like that. DeltaBunny will journal our lives togethers in the small Delta town of Rio Vista, California.

LE GRANDE BLEU/ROMAN ABRAMOVI(T)CH

Mom and Dad went shopping today. I was D.A.P.-o-lated again. (With a itty bitty car there isn't much room for me on a shopping trip.) One of their stops was their favorite winery, Bogle Vineyards. They bought a whole case of vino and nothin' for me. Well, they did get some cheese, so I guess that's alright.


Tastes sooo good! Hey, I saw some of those things.
Story at nine. Bark more in next posting.

On the way there they followed the Sacramento River Deep Water Ship Channel and stopped for a picnic on the levee. Out of the corner of one of their four eyes one of them espied a huge, strangely configured ship. Out came the spy cam and snap, snap.

It turned out to be the Le Grande Bleu. It is owned by the Russian oligarch Roman Abramovi(t)ch.

It is about 370 long with a draft of 25 feet and a crew of 65. It carries a helicopter, sailboat and speed boat, at least. Through our web search, we found that is was in San Francisco yesterday and in Rhode Island on the 25th of August. (World's fifth-largest private yacht.) What is he doing on the Deep Water Channel? Hope he's not lost.

More scale. The black blob on the road is a large SUV. Posted by Picasa

Dad thought it was one of Blofeld's yachts. My humans think that if we become hermits, just eat dirt, sleep in the woods and do nothing for forty years we might be able to hire the Le Grande Bleu for a three hour cruise..., three hour cruise.

Hey Whippy Curling Tails,

I have been doing a little composing off line but haven't published yet. My typist has been pretty busy the past several days and knows he has been very remiss in his secretarial duties. Hopefully tomorrow he can sit down for a minute and catch up.

Thanks for caring.

Woof!
