Forgive Your Enemies Easter Egg Hunt

So we took the kids to the Egg Hunt at our church this past weekend.
I'm sure it was just an oversight or something or just simply two different announcements on one church sign, but our church sign ended up proudly proclaiming:

"Forgive Your Enemies Easter Egg Hunt"
And, well, OK, I'm all about forgiving my enemies and all, but this seemed a particularly harsh theme for a little kids Easter Egg Hunt.


& kind of a pie in the sky policy when some little snot nosed, sticky fingered mean boy has a death grip on your candy filled egg, but OK, give it a shot.
But when your hard earned egg opens up to reveal nothing, well, that, my friend, is tough to swallow. In an interesting turn of events, at this particular hunt, the eggs were empty. The kids were perplexed. "Ha!" I wanted to scream, "Ha! That is how I feel 3 months into the Obama Presidency!! It's just like opening an empty egg!!"

But really, that's not the point of my story. (They did give the children tons of candy, fun & games, it was a GREAT time, please, no nasty emails) (not sure why the empty eggs though?) but the point of this story is who I caught looking for eggs off in the distance, all kinda sneaky-like:

It's Jennifer Smith & you bet she was rifling through the grass for eggs to put in her li'l wicker basket.

Just a heads up.

Driftwood is in school this week, filling his senior citizen brain with a whole lot of info for his new temporary job. That might curtail his postings and I just KNOW he will put one on today if he has the time.

Where was cousin David in the egg hunt? How did he miss that event?

Empty eggs? Real empty eggs with the stuffing sucked out thru a hole or fake ones? If they had hidden "deviled" eggs I would have come down there to hunt for them.

Obama is my boss so be careful what you say about him until after June 8th when my temp job as a census enumerator is up.
