    It's warm in rabbit holes, especially when there are other rabbits. It's winter after all.

    Lol. That's even funnier to me Chad because I saw a rabbit on your lawn when I was getting the measurements.

    Oh...RIP, Little Nibbles. Thanks for the pic rolo; that's just a few feet from the infamous pumpkin garden. Here she was almost two years ago as a tiny baby in our back yard (a few feet from the OTHER side of the garden):

    Of course I really have no idea which rabbit is which. It's still sad.

    Back on topic: with so many deliveries out of sequence, there's no way to be sure; but it looks like Tesla did (perhaps just) meet their target. Nobody will really no until the investor call. I hope they did - I imagine it will be close either way and in the long run the numbers don't matter; but of course people will make a big deal over whether Tesla performs as Musk claims it will.

    Little Nibbles' cousins have been multipying like bunnies in our yard. Plenty to spare. Maybe we can work something out.

    Sorry about going down another rabbit hole.

    BOT... These characters that take quotes from the forums bug me more than rabbit production rates. They frequently do not bother to contact the original author to vet the information that they are quoting. Sleazy reporting in my book, especially when they cherry pick or snip and distort to further an agenda.
