Both my daughters, Cassandra and Penny, are at Penny’s house for Easter with all my grandsons. So that’s where I am this morning.
Page won’t even come up. Anyway, here I am stumbling my way through.
We’re all going over to Blue Moon for lunch, then Cassandra, Matthew, and my grandson, Milo, are heading back on the 4-hour drive to Connecticut. Milo has school tomorrow and they need to get back early enough so he gets some sleep tonite.
Elly and I, of course, don’t really celebrate Easter, being certified non-believers, but seeing the kids ransack their Easter baskets is a treat. I grew up in the Easter season when mu father sold Easter baskets in his drugstore and we set up at home for about a month making them… filling them with candy and a big chocolate rabbit in the middle, then putting colored cellophane and a bow on them. What I remember most, heh heh, was sneaking into the dining room where we made the baskets, and taking candies from the stacks and stacks of boxes we got from the distributor. And there was a HUGE box of loose jellybeans… my favorite… to grab a handful from.
I look at that now from my position as an aging diabetic and realize that I’ve gotten my just reward.
I’ll be back later to update the blog.

Here is a piece I picked up at 123 Religious Comics. I must warn any of the non-atheists who read my stuff that this might offend you… but there are no bad words and it creates a fine matrix for pet lovers everywhere.
What’s even more fascinating about this is how it shows where REAL religions come from… built out of stories and thin air.
