Wasn’t it just Christmas? Does anyone else feel as if life just passes by from one holiday to another? I mean, can anyone remember the days in between? Heck, I can’t even remember the last holiday. They seem to blend together…. Hope that doesn’t mean I’m getting old… Oh wait, I am!
Surfing online as I usually do when I’m trying to avoid the drudgery of household chores, I found an interesting article on yahoo, “The Origins of Easter. Why do we associate eggs and bunnies with the resurrection of Christ?”
Now, don’t get your panties in a bundle. This is not a religious or anti-religious post. I know better than to do that silly, religion and politics; OFF LIMITS to a blogger, right? Now, sex on the other hand… No, this isn’t going there either, even though bunnies and hares are very prolific.
Did you know that the females could conceive a second litter of offspring while still being pregnant with the first? Gives a whole new picture to the Easter idea of bunnies being layers, (egg) huh?
Speaking of picture, I just have to share the picture of my Easter tree. I may go to hell since I stole the tree. Well, kind of. It’s a Manzanita tree. You know the kind that supposedly only grows in Northern Arizona where you have to have a permit to cut. Well, they grow here in the mountain areas too and like Arizona, they are protected from predators (like me). It wasn’t me, really, I didn’t cut it, but someone who loves me did. (Big Smile) He stopped the car along a deserted mountain road, sneek and snuck through the hills and just chopped that baby right off. Just a little piece, no one even noticed. Okay, okay, I’m bad, I’m going to hell. The one I bought (and paid a pretty penny) in a store, years ago, somehow got lost and I haven’t been able to find another. That counts right? Look at what a pretty base it makes for all the lovely Easter Ornaments.
I'm not a photographer so forgive the amateur pic, but check out the tree. You too can have one of these babies, but don't tell anyone I told you how. I'll deny it and say it was a big lie just to please my ever loyal audience.
I'll leave you with a wacky joke: WHY DO EASTER BUNNIES HIDE THEIR EGGS?
Cause they don't want their friends to know they've been sleeping with chickens.....
