    With the warming weather, people and their pets will be outdoors more often.

  • Easter Thoughts

    Sandy Laumeyer, Just a Thought|Apr 19, 2017

    While preparing Easter Sunday dinner, my thoughts drifted back to an Easter some years ago that definitely has been unforgettable. We always hosted Easter Sunday dinner because of calving season. This particular year, Easter also fell on my birthday. One of my husband’s brothers and his wife and family had come to visit his parents. So, of course, they were on the guest list for dinner, as was my husband’s parents and one of his uncles. We had also invited our parish priest to have dinner with us. A given thing during calving season was the sma...

    This is a more recent memory. Do you remember when community Easter Egg hunts featured real eggs? It does not seem like so many years ago that various organizations in communities got together an evening or so before the big Easter Egg Hunt and spent the evening cooking and dyeing eggs. Yes, real eggs. I am sure it turned out to be a fun event, dyeing all of those eggs. But that was all there was to it. You didn’t have to open each plastic egg and stuff candy, a toy or something in it before it was ready for hiding. Of course like now, they sti...
