Post 1602 - Easter Surprises

There were two highlights today.

The first one was this morning when Patricia gave me a special, one-of-a-kind, Bevboy's Blog t-shirt.  I will wear it to work on Tuesday, unless it's too cold or something.  I will have my picture taken in it and you will see it here on the blog on Tuesday night.

The second highlight was tonight's dinner.  It was an organic chicken that I purchased in Port Williams in the Fall.  It was roasted for several hours in the oven and served with mashed potatoes and gravy and fiddleheads, a local delicacy unknown to people outside of this region.  My friend Steve Vernon spoke of fiddleheads with Mark Justice on the pod of horror podcast a few years ago; Mark keep teasing Steve about them.  I just know they're delicious and Mark doesn't know what he's missing.

Anyway, the meal was excellent.  The t-shirt was terrific.  And it's been a good, albeit secular, Easter.

I am not sure what my point is here.  I'm not sure there is one.  I am not sure if there is even a verb here.  I am just rejoicing in a pleasant day with good company and 2 cats that were mostly docile for a change. It is my first Easter since my father died, and I was by turns looking forward to it and dreading it.  This time last year, Dad was in his assisted living home and in the last 2 weeks of his life.  Easter in 2010 was early enough in the year that he was able to enjoy it to some extent.

What can I say?  Life goes on.

See you tomorrow.
