Easter...

...you know, as far as holidays go, Easter is one of my favorites... not because of the religious connotations... but, quite simply because Spring is here... I like Spring... I like Autumn better, but Spring will do.... right now, as I sit here, the dogwoods are blooming... two crazy bluebirds are chasing each other around all over the lawn... I'm not sure if one is chasing the other off... or chasing it down... after all, Spring IS the time for love...

...oh, that reminds me.... remember the friggin Easter Bunny?... well, last night "Ginger The Cat" produced the prettiest little bunny you've ever seen... yep... laid that sucker right down in the garage... and then, he looked up at us with those creepy green eyes.. as if to say... "what?.. you had a burrito last night, you bastard... hey, this is the same thing.. except for cats..."... of course, at least my cow-filled burrito was yummy.... the bunny didn't look that damn appetizing...

...so, standing there in my garage... looking at a steaming bunny... freshly missing a head... I suddenly found myself wandering through thoughts of Spring... you know what I'm talking about.... newborn bunnies... blooming dogwoods.... calm and balmy weather.. tulip bulbs... daffodils... and, love in the air... then, it suddenly hit me....

...I guess... as we trundle through our lives.. most of us never see Ginger closing in.... ahhhh... Spring... what a wonderful time of year.... sucks to be a bunny, though....

You might want to keep ol' Ginger away from the reindeer at Christmas time -- a headless deer in the garage....blecch.

Wisconsin has 2 good months: May & June, the trees are flowering, the weather's nice, & the bugs are minimal.

Outside of that, it's either too damn hot or too damn cold
