HAPPY EASTER -OFF FOR A BREAK AND A BIT OF SURGERY

 Wishing you a 

Happy Easter

and a 

Happy Spring!


               I will be taking a break for at least a month.

I have some unexpected surgery coming up

mid month and I need to get some things

done before I go in hospital.

It is not life-threatening so no worries there.

I feel fortunate that at age 72 this is the 

FIRST MEDICAL ISSUE

I have ever had.

I have been blessed with good health

and hope to continue on with good health

once this problem is taken care of.

I will have 15 days of

'don't do ANYTHING'

after the surgery

and then another couple of weeks of

'take it EASY'.

If you know me that is like a gunshot in the foot

If you feel inclined -send up a prayer

for my hubby.  

He is not doing so great and is used to me

taking care of him.

I will have a grandgirl on call to help

when I need her.

See you in a month.

If you don't see me in a month---

check the obits.

Okay- that's a joke- you know me- I have 

BLACK HUMOR

about everything!

It's how I survive!

THE EASTER STORY TOLD BY A THREE YEAR OLD-IT MIGHT BRING A TEAR TO YOUR EYE~

 SweetCheeks was 3-1/2 years old

when she shared her beliefs
with Papa and me.
She is THIRTEEN now.

We were driving her to brunch
after church and asked her
what she had learned
about 
The Easter Story.

It was so touching to me
to see what this
little girl
UNDERSTOOD
about Easter.
And it almost makes
me cry listening to
her earnest explanation.

If you have a moment
it is worth the listen.
Just so you know~
I do think she
might have mixed
a little bit of
Gulliver's Travels
into the the
Jesus story!;>)

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE
YOUR VOLUME TURNED UP.

She almost started
crying when she
thought Jesus might
have felt pain.
Here it is-
Listen up and see what
YOU think!
If you click on the little square
on the bottom right hand side
it will go full screen.
(I'm sure most of you know that)

Amen, SweetCheeks, Amen!

From me to you-
A Blessed Easter
For those that don't have
time to listen....


For my wonderful, engaging blogging friends
that are not of the 
Christian faith-
I love you all just as dearly 
as I love everyone else.

EVERYONE MATTERS
and I hope you have a 
Wonderful Sunday!!!

PICK YOUR FAVORITE EASTER TABLE RESULTS-YOU DID IT!

 You all never cease to amaze me!

I made up this little 'game'
and you played along again!

I LOVE IT & THANK YOU!
So---
Are you ready for your results and to see 
who is sitting at your table?

Of course, we DID HAVE a couple
that couldn't make up their mind
I will point them out and make fun of them
but at least they tried...


Anyway--- here we go!
Table #1
Tiptoe Thru Pastel Tulips
Gert (was afraid she would be sitting alone), Jan E (here for the jelly beans), Miss BB(who has a whole 'nother name that I am not at liberty to share), Mevely, Akasha's daughter (love it that kids are playing along), Jack & Sherry (and he says he is NOT folding bunny napkins thank you very much), Arlene, Bless, Phyllis(Welcome!!!), Cindy and JennythePirate(who is taking ALL the black jelly beans-guess Jan won't be getting any of that color)

Whew--that Jenny sure is demanding!

Moving along:
Table #2
The Blue Plate Special

Here we have Debra/SheSeeks-(and pretty sure she will be bringing TheRareOne-I'm skeered to ask what makes her Rare), Akasha (who has chosen NOT to sit with her daughter at Table#1), Laurie, Judy, RonTheCocktailKing (y'all are lucky to have him at your table), Dear Wanda, Rose, Rita, Hootin'Annie(wouldn't you love to have her let out a big old hoot at the table?), Carla (and as a TRUE Wisconsinite is wondering WHAT the SPECIAL is)


Table #3
Transfer(ware) Me There
Wow!  A lot of you gals like Transferware!
Seated here are: Penny, Diane (insisting on a bunny napkin), Vee (here because Table THREE rhymes with VEE???, Janice, Happy, Jan/LowCarb, Lorrie, Miss Dishywoo(gotta love anyone with a name like that), Nancy, Jeanie, Nonie, Bonnie(the rhyming pair-Bonnie & Nonie),DebbieDabble, Buttercup, Sugar, Rain(table reminds her of her dear grandma), and POLLY-(couldn't make up her mind and I think I scared the Bejesus outta her because she came back and decided to sit here-Welcome Polly!)

Table #4
Eggs Take A Bow
Here we have: Sandy/Chatty, bobbie, Louise(wants tea and something for dinner besides eggs-what-do I look like a short order cook?), Patty M(bringing her lab dog -NOT LAP dog-lab dog who will sit at her feet-make sure your toes are covered girls!), Pam (had several 'conditions' but MUST sit facing a window-wonder if I put a mirror across from her she would think she was looking "out"-or see the twin she never knew she had), Fran, Kris, Melanie & Cindy/Cloches.

Table #5
A Tisket A Tasket A Green & Growing Basket
A small group- Nellie (who doesn't really like ANY of the tables so this was her first/last choice) Julie, Cecilia(also wants a bunny napkin-LISTEN UP- I GAVE YOU INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE THEM...DO IT AND BRING IT), Ellen, LisaK,   and Sandy

Table #6
Wisteriaful Thinking

Jenn (wants a bigger table-um-okay), Ginny, Susan K,  MA, Terri(getting all dolled up and dressed to the nines-as opposed to showing up in her bathrobe like she usually does) & Marilyn


Table #7
Eggsactly 16 Eggs In A Row
Sandra (hates ALL the tables but will lower her standards to sit here IF we remove the centerpiece) Hey!  I don't make this up- I just relay the words!
Theresa, Ann, Jan/Journey, DawnP, DorisF, Liz (her OCD won't let her sit at Table 5 because something is askew there).

So folks--there you have it.
You picked your table so you should have
like-minded people sitting with you.
If you DON'T like them---
well, as my daddy always said,
you made your bed-now lie in it....
or in this case...
sit on the chair you chose.

I "think" I got everyone this time
AND put you at the right table
BUT--let me know if I screwed up
as I'm sure you will.

Oh!  And who couldn't make up their mind?
Well, Tom the Backroads Traveler wants something with paper plates! Then there is Kim/Exquisitely -who has no idea where she wants to sit-so I guess she will sit at home?  

Off and running (before one of you hurts me with mean words).
Have a great blessed Good Friday!

Scruffy and I are off to visit a
"puppy school" but more about that later.

I have a wonderful little video of an Easter past
coming up on Sunday.
It will make you smile 
but also break your heart a bit.
