|You better watch those eggs!|
Although Easter has already come and gone, I thought this card was too funny not to use!
Otherwise, our Easter was a quiet affair, as usual. We had some lamb (leg-steaks this time) for brunch and deviled eggs around happy hour, when we invited our neighbor over for a beer.
The town of Leesville is right next to a military 'post', Fort Polk, and a lot of guys live off base here at this RV Park.
Some visit their families, if they have one, when they have some days off, or they'll come up every now and then to visit, but many are just by themselves most of the time.
Our neighbor's family is in Kentucky and he appreciated some time with 'a family' for Easter.
Like last year, I used some Mardi-Gras beads as decoration. I thought I had some other 'stuff' somewhere, but I guess I threw it away ... oh, well, this works too.
The weather is just perfect at the moment. Not too hot, around 80F, and not too humid .. yet ...
We try to eat outside when we can right now, because soon it will get too uncomfortable and we'll be forced to make a run for the AC!
|I think he needs a shave and a haircut ...|
My Surfinias (in the top of the pic) are not too happy. For some reason, mine are never abundantly overflowing their pots, like they do in the adds ...
High in the tree-tops the large (Southern) Magnolias are starting to bloom. I'll have to wait until the lower ones will open up, to get some better shots of these gorgeous white flowers.
And these little pink fluff-balls are from a Mimosa variety! Their vines creep through the grass and are very prickly.
It's called Mimosa Pudica.
Also called sensitive plant, sleepy plant, touch-me-not, or shy plant. It's leaves fold inward and droop as soon as it is touched and shaken, defending it-selves from harm, and than to re-open a few minutes later. How cool is that?
A nice little surprise this week was this Scissor-tailed Flycatcher that I spotted one morning around the golf course!
I've seen one before, in the Texas Hill Country, and that's where they are fairly common.
But over here they are quite rare, as for in the rest of the country, where they are basically non-existent.
Not the best shot, but isn't it a beauty? Look at that tail!
Well, it's a rather short post I'm afraid but I really don't have much else to write about.
Things are cruising along on schedule, and without too many problems, over at James job-site and I'm filling my time rather happily and uneventfully with some walking an golfing and a little reading and spinning.
This is my cozy little 'window seat' where I spend most of my afternoons when it gets too warm outside.
Life is good!
