Easter Part 1

Welcome!  - I'm up and running again with a brand new computer system.  It may take me awhile to get use to this as I accidentally published this post to the wrong blog and then deleted it so I had to start all over.

Every year the Exchange club puts on an Easter Egg Hunt at Pioneer Park.  This is the banner that was on the Gazebo.

Jojo (Joelle) waiting for the hunt to start.

The large duck from the upcoming Ducky Derby (May 18, 2024) was there.

Both the Easter bunny and the duck were available for photos but with such a huge crowd it was almost impossible to get one.

Candy, eggs and rubber ducks were all over the place.

Jojo wasn't afraid at all of heading out into the crowd to gather eggs.

Big sister followed her out along with her mom while I tried to keep up and get pictures.

This was just a small section of the huge crowd of people that were there. - I forgot to get a picture of Jojo with her basket of eggs but she had a great time and that's what matters.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you enjoyed this little slice of our life.

Look what I got

 Just popping in with a quick post to show you what I received from my youngest brother, Roger.  He has a 3D Printer and made these for me.

I love them both.  Which is your favorite?

Around the block

 Went for a walk around the block the other day.  Saw some stuff, took pictures with my phone.  Decided I'd rather take pictures with my camera.  Got home, got the camera and walked back around the block.

Fungi and an old rusty pipe. (almost typed, pie) - Rusty pie doesn't sound very good.

Little snowdrop flowers blooming in someone's yard.

Seed pods on a tree and the road behind it.

This wasn't around the block but I thought I'd sneak it in anyway.

This is our old boy,   Harley J.  He turns 16 in May.

Winter arrived today

Hello and Welcome. - Gosh it's already the 12th of January and I've only posted once this year so far.  -  Life tends to get in the way sometimes and I don't get around to blogging as often as I'd like.
So far this year I've been busy with taking down the inside Christmas decorations (which is a big job), helping a little to take down the outside decorations (another big job).  I've also done other work around the house which was neglected through the holiday season.
It hasn't all been work though as I've bowled a couple of times already this year on the Tuesday morning league.  In fact I did great this past week averaging out for the 3 games at a 162!  I also spent a lovely afternoon playing Bunco with a great group of ladies and even took 3rd place winning a few $$ and just having a great time.
Our weather has been awesome for the most part with no snow at all in December.  We had a tiny skiff a few days ago that was gone by the next morning.  Last night though we got this:

 I cleared the walks off this morning with a "leaf blower"!  Lots of fun and since it was powdery snow easy to do.  Temperature is cold as the high today was only expected to be 15.  
For those of you who know me well you know I  (don't do winter, well) but I'm trying to think positive and that in only about 6 weeks it should be a whole lot nicer outside.  Each day is one day closer to spring!
Hope where ever you are you are staying, safe, warm, dry & enjoying life.
