Happy Easter 2016

Last year I wrote a post about Easter. It was a little walk down memory lane. It can be read here. Easter 2015. I hope you will read it because this is a slight continuation from one year ago.

I mention the memories of my cousin and me in our Easter dresses standing in the front yard on our farm. Oh, how I had wished last year that I had that picture to show. Well, a year has gone by, and I have run across the photo. I knew I had it, but I just didn't know where. A copy turned up in some recently obtained papers and photos belonging to my aunt whose son and daughter are in the picture with me.

And then, last summer I found another treasure. Have I mentioned I have trouble throwing anything away.  It is well known that I inherited this trait/gene/fault from my mother. I have been working on cleaning out the old farm house (not the one from the picture), but the one my parents lived in since 1969. Mom had a closet built under the stairway. It is one of those that go on forever and can store a myriad of treasures. Some of those treasures went straight to the burn pile, but others were saved. Now what to do with these saved treasures. Imagine my surprise when I came across these.

Now in a perfect world, you would be looking at a picture of the very hats my cousin and I are wearing in the photo above instead of a piece of clipart.  Yes, I found the hats. Why had she saved hats that were about 60 years old? They are in perfect condition as you would see if I could produce the photo. Oh, well. I have my post addition for next Easter. I know I will find it by then.

Enjoy your Easter Sunday with family and/or friends. And think about Easter Sunday 2017 post when you get to see the photo of the hats. Or maybe I will just share it when I run across it again. Life is short. We don't need to be counting the days until next year.

  1. Well, you could always auto-schedule that post for 2017!

    Hope you had a happy Easter, Margie. Glad you found that photo...and a lot more!
