Hurpy Easterz! Hope today is full of peace, chocolate & peeps. Today many families will congregate in celebration of Jesus's 1st day in Heaven---having left an earth that nailed him to a cross and put him in a cave sealed w/ a boulder. We celebrate by giving Easter baskets to kids and adults filled w/ chocolates, colored eggs and coloring books. I have made a simple lit'l basket for the neighbor child----I was going to sign it From: Easter Bunny but thought otherwise.... didn't want to freak the parents out and give them anxiety that some kid bandit is watching them. I am going to sign it FROM: Samson & Baxter instead-----they'll get who it's from and it will be cute. Little Yorkies giving out presents is cute/funny. On my walk w/ the boys I saw a Volkswagen Beetle and for some reason I thought that THEY give off an Easter vibe of sorts--perhaps its the egg like shape, the round curves and big round lights. Wouldn't it be fun if everyone drove Beetles on Easter---all different colors. I guess if Aaron and I moved to a small enough town we could influence the tradition a bit, maybe if we were truly clever we would open up a Beetle dealership and sell beetles to ALL our neighbors. Organize parades, drop off easter baskets to the Hospital kids. While I'm at it......I could hiring a brick layer and have him lay me down a yellow brick road; How furn would that be? Beetle Mania, burning rubber on yellow bricks tossing jellybeans and peeps out the windows at all the local kids. Take that! and That! I wouldn't throw hard, underhand only, I promise. The dealership would have to offer tons of colors---you wouldn't want to have the same color as your neighbor plus valet would be impossible---the poor fellow would be scratching his head; which of the 4 red Beetles to retrieve? Reality is somewhat more manageable I guess. Like every Sunday, Aaron and I will be going out for brunch ( brunch resos on Easter, tough, ...very tough) We will be sipping bloody marys and enjoying the company of some dear friends. I'll probably order an omelet, seems appropriate. Happy Easter everyone---enjoy your day! Jelliez and Belliez---Chocalatz and Salted Nutz! Hip skippity doo-DAH doo--DEE!
