Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night

That is the quote that came to my mind in regards to These Two Kids from having Their Easter Egg Hunt.

They WILL have their Egg Hunt.(And wasn't that a wonderful thing for their dad to take time to hide those eggs in the rain,while cooking up a fabulous meal for us all. He is a great Daddy.

Usually the kids stay home on Easter,even though Sunday has always been their day at Meemaw's and Poppy's.With them going to Easter Mass and then checking out the goodies that the Easter Bunny has brought,their Dad felt he needed a little quiet time to prepare dinner for the "Gang"

Their mother had to work,she's a nurse,you know, and people do get sick,even on Easter,so she wouldn't be home till around 7:30 or 8:00 PM.That left Dad to do dinner,alone.He's in his element though,so he was OK with that,but it would help if SOMEONE would take the two chocolate crazed kids for the day. You can guess who that someone was.

And look where Mr. Easter Bunny was during all of the rain and confusion.

Stretched out on Meemaw and Poppy's loveseat. Oh well,I guess he did have a busy night.
He deserves a little R & R.

Although........they say:
The United States Postal Service has no official creed or motto.
Often falsely cited as such, "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds" is an inscription on the James Farley Post Office in New York City,[1] derived from a quote from Herodotus' Histories (8.98), referring to the courier service of the ancient Persian Empire:     (Copied from Ask.com)


  1. It seems like we always get rain or snow on Easter.

  2. Yes, it looks like everyone except Texas,Terry's state.I do hope they get some of these heavy rains to help put out those horrific fires they've been having.

  3. Sweet that they are out hunting eggs in the rain. Hope you don't float away tomorrow! Much rain is headed our way. Stay safe.

  4. weve had a wet weekend too sue, lots of surface flooding. i had a hollow egg for lunch yesterday, how nutritious is that!! kids dont have a thermostat do they, doesnt matter how wet or cold it is, when you talk sweets youre talking their language.

  5. WE also had to hide eggs in the rain all 16 dozen, Edna, tesa,and me, the moms kept the kids inside until we got them hide, but we had a good time, even with the rain!!
