Another Easter come and gone, and I have turned 75 without incident. Of course I tell the grandkids that I am 57, but they have long since caught on that their poor ol' grandpa tells white lies about such things. Anyway in 50 years or so, they will be coming up with their own explanations about the aging process. Good luck, kids.
Jenna & Julie - cousins
The day before Easter Sunday, Julie and Grandma sat down and frosted some cookies. We learned long ago that coloring eggs for teens was futile. Yeh! we spent a lot of time the night before hard boiling them, and coloring them up with interesting designs. We even hid them in the back yard for the young collage adults who were so important in our lives.
Joe, Andy and Wyoming friends, and our kids with friends came for Easter Sunday. After a nice Easter dinner, we sent them out into the back yard to hunt eggs, and guess what? Yes, they ended up throwing them at each other, and we learned a lesson.
This year we didn't even start with dinner until about 6 PM (We went to late afternoon church.)
Everyone brought something, and grandma had a turkey roasting all day long. Katie brought resurrection (funeral) potatoes, a casserole commonly served in Utah by local churches for families of the deceased, following the internment of the deceased.
We changed the name to Resurrection Potatoes, in honor of Easter, just because we thought it more appropriate. Anyway, both turkey and potatoes were completely devoured, which delighted the cooks.

Greg is the cool dude with his beard. Just in case you are wondering, I approve of his appearance. I checked it out closely and found that it was nicely timed, and his neck was cleanly shaven - trims it weekly he says . Nothing looks as good as a man with a well maintained beard. Remember that ladies!

Speaking of a ladies man, this is he. Matthew - tall, smart, athletic, well trimmed hair and cute dimples. I have been told that the girls in his school class have tried to chase him, but he is to fast to be caught.
Look for my next posting within the week. Tammy & Brendan made a whirlwind trip to our house from Olympia. We had a great time together!
