"Punching Cattle on a Jack Rabbit", Cowboy riding a jack-rabbit and herding cattle, handmade copper frame, circa 2004
Everything is bigger in the West, especially the rabbits. Jack Rabbits are particularly - and surprisingly - large. Add in a pinch of western exaggeration and bravado, and well, this is what you get. We found this magnet at a quirky gift shop in a small arts mall somewhere in downtown Tucson, Arizona.
You too can sit on a giant concrete rabbit at the Jackrabbit Trading Post outside Joseph City, Arizona. No cattle though.
Magnet Monday features a selection from our semi-vast and ever growing collection of cheesy refrigerator magnets. Without doubt the perfect souvenir. Only slightly less cheesy than collecting snow globes but maybe a lot easier to smuggle in your bra. If need be. Which I hope it never is. Unless it's really worth it.
