Easter Sunday 2009

Hope yours was swell.

A game I started a few years ago at family feasts is "What's your first bite?"
Now we even talk about it while waiting for dinner to be served.

Some people are stuffing 1st no matter what.
Others are into the mixed forkful, to get the essence of the meal all at once.
I'm all over the place, sometimes it's the corn but by the next Thanksgiving I might be needing some ham or turkey first.
What about you?

Don't worry--this plate may look sparse but I just prefer having some room to work.
Another slab of ham, more turkey and stuffing, and two flaky biscuits found their way into my belly before too long, plus two brownies with Cool Whip and sliced strawberries on top.

After our fabulous home cooked meal, the only true adult left the room and within 3 minutes the rest of us were in trouble.

Is that the result of an Easter egg hunt? I'm not sure you guys are doing it right!

Yeah--and we aren't even drunk.

Ever hear about how the Plains Indians would torch the prairies just before the buffalo's favorite tall grass sprouted, to eliminate competition and fertilize naturally?
This was a similar lawn care via fire test.
It alarmed the women, but I'm betting on success.
We've all seen how quickly the burnt sections next to IH35 turn green compared to the rest of the sad grass.
