It's over in a day, and unlike Christmas the advertising is relatively low key.

Most retail is closed, so time can be spent with family.

If one has to wait for retail to close to spend time with fammily, one is in very deep doo-doo to begin with.

Marion- thanks for the heads up..... however, some people have to work for a living, including my children. Retail is where they work.... but thanks for your insight.

Happy Birthday, Roe!!!! Did "we" ever get a copy of that birthday photo of yours? I understand it might bring top rate fees on line...likely from a local newspaper and affiliates. ;)

wow, happy birthday Roedapple, imagine that! you were born on easter! hey, cool.

Cathy^above, we had the hotcross buns homemade, took to church for the breakfast, got totally whiped out! delicious.

great OTS! I'm with Deklan: "Candy!" I think OTS should ask the kids more often, and see what we get.

OTS: "will the South Lawrence Trafficway be completed in your lifetime?" "do you prefer developers or environmentalists?"

or "will KU go to the final 4" asked at schwagler elementary.

my answer: I do appreciate the resurrection celebrated in what is oddly called easter sunday. the music and the message at church today.
the breakfast was good too.

Roe, nice try...but I believe the dog in the picture to your link was much older than the mere pup you are in your picture - remember, we are online...most people do not know what you actually look like. Act as I do and pretend you are twenty years and twenty pounds lighter/younger. The hat did resemble the authentic hat though...

I hope your birthday brought a ton of yelps your way. Did you have to compete with the Easter Bunny for attention?

Thanks gnome, hope I can make it to the next three April 12th Easters.

Huntin' wabbit! (and raiding the kid's easter basket after he's asleep).

bearded_gnome 9 years ago

oh Roedapple, couldn't you tell I was joking? I was making that comment as if easter always fell on the same date!

RoeDapple 9 years ago

Who's joking, I want to make at least the next two!
