Rabbits in the Mist

Other years we hardly see any - myxomatosis - killing them off (a rabbit with this disease is a terrible thing to see).
This year is a good year for rabbits and a bad year for humans. On my way to town this morning, every few hundred yards, there was a squashed rabbit on the road. I don't know whether drivers aim for them or not - but the rabbits timing crossing the roads, leaves a lot to be desired. Of course this outcome is good for the crows and magpies, who stand in the road enjoying the carrion, flying off with the rabbits entrails to eat in comfort somewhere a bit safer.
On a more pleasant note - as I was walking through the market place, I heard the sound of some rather excellent music. Following the sound, I came across three buskers playing a splendid jazzed-up version of 'Sweet Georgia Brown'. A violin, double bass and guitar - making the market sound like a French side street or something. I don't know about you, but when I hear street-music it brings a lump to my throat and makes me very tearful. I get even worse at Christmas when groups stand round singing carols.
