Heres some old fun posts
- Google Reveals It’s Easter, So Tie Your Tie and Head… I get the RSS feed for hot Google searches. Yeah, that's weird I know, but I always chuckle at some of the search terms. I'm as guilty as anyone of typing the actual URL that I know in the Google search box. At 10:11 a.m. CST these were the hot search terms... I think it must be Easter and people want to dress up and go shopping for water dogs. (Jonathan Singer was the subject of CBS This Morning, the author of Botanica Magnifica. Or you can Google him) # how to tie a tie # portuguese water dog # jonathan singer # is target open on easter # obama dog # home depot easter hours # target locations # history of easter # easter bible verses # how to cook a ham # first dog # he is risen # easter scripture # target store hours # publix # easter parade # how to tie a necktie # easter parade new york # ham glaze # easter music # obama puppy # resurrection sunday # easter quotes # white house dog # leg of lamb cooking time
- Crappy Easter! Nancy didn't doo a very good job of planning her colonoscopy. It's Monday. Sheesh! I have to be the stupidest person! Only I would schedule a colonoscopy the morning after Easter! (I didn’t realize it was Easter when it was scheduled!) Therefore, my Easter dinner will consist of Ducolax and Miralax in Powerade! She's fixing a turkey today which I will polish off tomorrow. Hoping for video to post Monday afternoon! Insert inappropriate jokes in comments... here, or at her blog.
- Wife As Bunny; Egg in Shoe; Eggs on Ceiling There are three lasting memories I have connected to Easter. In order of longevity they are: My mother always put a hard boiled Easter Egg in my shoe. Nancy continued this after Mother died. This year, I let her off the hook, saying that being sixty was old enough to retire the tradition. I have a feeling I am too late. It's probably already planted. I was reminded of this after she delivered a solid chocolate Easter bunny to a neighbor, who is 30, as a favor to her mother who was going to be out of town. I thought the business I worked for should have an Easter Bunny to create some goodwill. Nancy loves this kind of stuff, so she volunteered to be the bunny. "That was so fun, I wish we still had the costume," she just said. She just wandered around downtown on Saturday and made kids eyes light up. On Easter Sunday, she made deliveries to the kids in the neighborhood. If we have visitors for Easter, Nancy always colors eggs. Amy and SIL came on Easter, so she got busy and was boiling eggs when she remembered and errand and left the house. We came home to a house full of blue smoke, the pan had boiled dry and two dozen eggs had exploded. Appropriately, we had an egg crate false ceiling and the eggs blew through to the solid ceiling above. Today will be relatively calm, unless we have an explosion related to her appointment Monday. This could be another memory-making day!
- Take the Christ Out of Christmas, But Put the Bunny Back In… A Tennessee church is trying to make inroads with the christians in Smallburg. This Holy Week the people who probably grumble most about taking the Christ out of Christmas are putting the Bunny into Easter. The Great Bunny Takeover was created as a fun way to get out into the community and let people know about the church,... The bunnies and other volunteers have handed out candy and helped people carry their groceries, and the bunnies have posed for pictures with children. Just as Christmas is all about Santa Claus, Easter is all about the Easter Bunny.
