Happy Easter

At this point on Saturday night it looks like we'll be having a very quiet Easter.  Part
of our family is away, and the part of the family that's in town are coping with a very 
serious cold.  So I thought I'd reshape this part of a post from another year.  Steven and I are not religious at all, and really like the pagan aspects of Easter -- chocolate bunnies and eggs, and having a great meal. 
Easter baskets.

I thought I'd add this piece from a former blog.  It's a story about my pet rabbit in
university -- Harold.  She was a girl.

"(I put Harold, the bunny rabbit on my blog every year since I painted her (yes a she), and think
happily of the time a university boyfriend, not knowing how innocent I was, gave me a marijuana plant for a present. While I was out at class, Harold, my rabbit, ate the plant, plus a massive chunk of the sheets and blanket in my rental room!  The young married couple I was renting from were not impressed. Neither was I.  I had to pay for new sheets and a blanket. But the whole story makes me laugh every year when I think of Harold)."

Have an enjoying celebrating day.

Hi Evelyn,

I don't know why I named her Harold. Maybe after Harold Town?
I'm glad you like the painting.
