Happy Easter!

Happy Holiday!

There are two Easters. One religious, the other not.

The religious Christian. Recognizes Christ rose from the dead……He is risen, He’s not here!

The non-religious for everyone. The Easter bunny, baskets, small yellow candy chicks, chocolate bunnies, etc.

Did the non religious this morning. Just after the sun rose. The annual Easter egg hunt at Lisa’s. In the back yard. Robert and Ally searching for the colored eggs and gifts their parents had hidden.

Something for Jake, also. Never left out. An artificial bone, something to else to chew on, a ball, etc.

Jake as excited as Robert and Ally.

Followed by a huge Easter breakfast prepared by Lisa. Lisa made guzza (guzzad) again. Italian ricotta cheesecake. Second time. Excellent. Vanilla. Told her to move on next year to one with chocolate, cherries, green fruits, etc.

I am invited to four different dinners/gatherings this afternoon. Don’t know if I will make any. May just lay around all day. I am already bloated from breakfast. Will miss the holiday company, however. We shall see.

Began last night at the Chart Room. New bartender Maureen working. Her father bartended at the Chart Room 30 yeas ago for many years. A retired FBI agent. His name Ted. Was known as Ted the Fed.

Then to Hot Tin Roof. Glad I did. Jean Thornton was at the bar having dinner with Eddie. They finished. Eddie left. Jean stayed with me while I ate.

Then back to the Chart Room with Jean.  Che’s birthday last night. Eighty four. God bless him! He was not there. Did not answer his cell phone.

First time Jean met Maureen. They chatted away. Jean liked Maureen and vice versa. A friendship was born.

I drove Jean home. Her bike was broke.

The clamor yesterday on TV rising from the nationwide demonstrations calling for Trump to release his tax returns. Worry not. At some point in time  they will be revealed. Against Trump’s wishes. He will be able to do nothing about it.

The two Congressional committees can subpoenae them. As well as the FBI. Assuming all or at least one will have the balls to do it.

Enjoy this Easter Sunday!


Normally, I write my KONK Life column on Sunday. This week I got a day ahead. Did it yesterday. Title…..Legalization of Prostitution.

The topic was selected because rumblings can be heard that it is time. Germany thought it was the time in 2002. I wrote an article three years ago re Germany’s post legalization experience. I added that article on to yesterday’s. The two tie in well together..

The column publishes Wednesday.

Dinner with Eddie last night. Eddie is a friend of many years from the bocce courts. We never had been out together before. Decided to get together for dinner last night.

Interesting the things you learn about a person once you have the opportunity to chat a while.

We were dining at Tavern ‘n Town. Michael Emerson on the guitar and singing. Eddie said I know Mike….. I was a musician by trade before I came down with MS. Sure enough. Mike stopped over and the two chatted like long lost friends.

I enjoyed Eddie’s company. I am sure we will do it again.

I was able to sneak some time in while writing yesterday to watch golf. Tiger Woods is doing well. Tied for second going into today’s final round. Hope he wins!

His problem yesterday was putting. He missed a few he has to make if he is to win.

My yesterday was simple. This blog therefore simple.

Enjoy your Sunday!
