easter bunnies

Last easter I tried my darndest to find some old Easter pics from my olde timey days of being a kid in the 70s, but all I could find were these Donald Duck blow up doll pics (which really was more of a bonus than anything if you ask me).  They happen to be pics of my second birthday, which usually falls on or around Easter anyways.

This year Easter falls on the day after my birthday and all that really means for you is that I am updating my blog in an astoundingly timely manner.  AND I finally found what I was looking for!  Pics of little CPC at Easter!  I was really wanting to find a pic with one of those giant blow up Easter bunnies and sadly the only one i could find is super weirdly discolored.  But I’m sure you won’t mind.

First up is the coveted blow up Easter bunny pic.  I freaking love these things man.  That’s yours truly on the right.

And here are some cute pics of waking up to easter baskets (and check out those Ronald McDonald dolls!).  I’m the one that looks like I had a really hard night – as per usual…

And finally another fab blow up bunny pic of some mystery family and what looks to me like a Chinese restaurant.


Ok!  Happy Easter!  And may you all be showered with blow up bunnies this year!!!!

Half Assed Irish Stuff for St. Patrick's Day

So yeah – I’ve become painfully aware that I’m laming out and basically only doing blog posts on the major holidays here – like Valentine’s Day and that holiday where we all roll around on the floor with our dresses tucked into our pantyhose. So I’ll continue with my new tradition of lameness and post [...]

Ladies and the Gorillas that Love Them...Apparently

And lately I’ve noticed just how many gorilla/lady pics I have accumulated and am still accumulating, and I yammered away at anyone who would listen [...]
