“We always go to church. All my kids are older now, but we still hide the eggs just for fun. My husband has to work this year, so we’ll be having Easter dinner on Saturday.”

“We do the church thing. First we go to the service, then all the kids go outside and hunt for eggs. They have Easter baskets as prizes for the kids who find the most.”

Enjoy ourselves. One younger child keeps the whole family young. Easter egg hunts and treasure hunts.

Instead of a rabbit, how about posting a picture of a dead puppy; a dead wolf-dog puppy. Surely, the same adults and children would chuckle at it, too.

Marion, do I know you? Did you used to drive a dark blue VW Beetle in the very early 70s? A while back you refered to the basement of the Bierstube. I was a (near daily) Bierstuber then.

Marion: don't specifically recall any of that iron in my time in Lawrence, but certainly know the various vehicles. The Fleetmaster was oh-so-cool. I had a '54 MG-TF and cherished it. Left Lawrence years ago; I've been gone to Europe since '71. My tastes have changed; in a nation where Mercedes and big Citroens are taxis, my last six consecutive rides have been Benzes. No, I'm certainly not wealthy; it's just that I cannot afford to keep repairing the alternatives. Mercedes build boring cars: boring, in that nothing ever goes wrong with them. Every Shelby ever made has been lovely... but today they're bordering on crude.

Kimi won this morning, Hamilton last week. Happy Easter, tomorrow's a holiday here. Day off. Wine at home. Almost time for bed. See you 'round campus.

I recall Spencer, but not the Toyota. I remember he had a green, race-prepared TR-6. Entriken had an MG-A that he ran in St Charles a few times. Bill was married to a Fox. Clancy had a yellow Bugeye that went like doo-doo off a Teflon shovel. You're talking too much "Detroit" for me. If it wasn't you, then who was it that drove that blue VW, with that strange automatic they offered for a while? Nice guy.

Bah! You and your necrology! It was thanks to you that I had to bar my doors and windows every Easter.

This plan must be taking some time to properly implement.

I celebrated this Easter Sunday by going to work and then getting off work and stopping by the liquor store to pick up some refreshing cold libation, but there was a sign on the door that said the liquor stores are closed on Easter. So much for celebratin'.

Deciding togetherness might not be the best thing to continue.

Marion: That's true, but it's still better than taking your own bottle to the club and letting the bartender serve you your own liquor, or buying a liquor card and checking it off for each drink, and having to dance disco.

Hey Marion! As I'm new here, what do we do when this particular "post topic" is no longer valid? Like, we're under a decidedly "Easter" topic, which the LJW will presumably kill.... So, now what?
