    Default Say goodbye to my little friend - on the passing of Eisley Rabbit

    He never strummed a chord or sang a note, but he was a part of the Seasons of the Ukulele from the very first week. A consummate actor, at times he portrayed a vampire, a shark, a dog, a cowboy, and a spy. Eisley Rabbit passed away this morning. He was 13 years old, which is very old for a rabbit. He maintained his youthful vigor by humping balloons, and when he stopped a couple of weeks ago, I suspected he was nearing the end. He is survived by his three humans, and by two forlorn balloons who will be lonely this Valentine’s Day. He was a strange little guy, but I will miss him dearly.

    The video below was taken when his playing with balloons was still a platonic thing.

    Oh, Jim ... so sorry to hear this; he had a good innings! Will you continue to use him as the emblem for your videos ... I hope so!
