Easter 2019 – OCF Update

Good Morning to all of you out there.  Today is a day for family here, as it always has been for me.  We’ll have a meal with the kids and grandkids, some in-laws and even some family coming up from New York.  It should be nice.  The weather has been rainy the last few days but the forecast says it will stop and the sun may even appear.  The first daffodils have bloomed in the yard (we’re always about two weeks behind the rest of the world here in the “Land of the Lost”).  Turkeys have been walking around in the woods and even stopping by Camera Girl’s bird feeders.  The Mallards have retuned from Capistrano (or wherever they go) and are eating whatever goo they find in the puddle.  Still no sign of the beaver yet (smart money is that the coyotes got him).  To quote from that memorable philosopher George Costanza, “Spring. Rejuvenation. Rebirth. Everything’s Blooming. All That Crap.”

For photos I’ve got to get some new stuff together.  Even I’m butterflied out (or is it butterflown?).  I have some flower stuff that is appropriate but I’ll need to do some shooting soon.  Maybe I’ll look for something old that will be interesting.

On the politics side things are definitely looking interesting.  Now is the time for the President to strike while the iron is hot as they say.  A two-pronged strategy to set the Justice Department on the perpetrators of the Russia hoax and at the same time advancing his immigration policy would be the best idea from my point of view.  The important thing is to be seen to make progress.  That rallies the troops and frightens the bad guys.

With respect to reviews, I’ve enjoyed the Twilight Zone project and have decided that after it’s done, I’m going to embark on a review of the original Star Trek series.  Mocking Bill Shatner will be a labor of love for me and certain to raise the spirits of all readers.  I’ve got a review of the movie, “The Natural,” coming up tomorrow morning and I’d like to pick out some other older films to highlight that people still have a choice of watching something entertaining even while Hollywood is still dominated by the insane death cult ensconced there.

To all Christians out there Happy Easter.  To all Jewish readers have a Happy Passover.  To everyone else, enjoy the chocolate eggs.

    Chocolate bunny ears were an endangered item at our home when my wife was alive and the kids were young. My wife could hunt down a chocolate rabbit and eat the ears no matter where the kids hid them. Instead of ham, we had smoked pheasant for Easter. I am and was an avid hunter and a pretty good wingshot. Smoked pheasant from the autumn before were favorites in our home. No rabbit for Easter, naturally. 😉 We had a good, smoke cured ham for Christmas as it was easy to leave out for all day piecing. My wife made scratch buttermilk biscuits and ham & biscuits were wonderful. When the weather cooperated we had an egg hunt. The kids got baskets with too much candy and we had a hard time putting them to bed that evening.

      That pheasant sounds good. My youngest grandson tried to interest me in some chocolate from his Easter basket but I saved my appetite for the actual food. It’s great to be young.
