Easter bunny is in quarantine up here. No eggs, jelly beans, chocalote, or baskets  this year. 

Our daughter is stuck in college. She's not been well for a few weeks (almost certainly not Covid-19 but we're being careful). So mom, dad, and sister stayed in the car outside the house she shares with a bunch of other students and she opened her basket on the hood

She got all the essentials; candy, a cuddly chick, bubbles, sidewalk chalk, and (because she's 20 now) a pack of playing cards 😄. We're doing Video Easter Dinner later.

 

I hope everybody is well.

Richard

Like others here I started with the senseless ritual decapitation of the chocolate bunny, but I didn't stop there and removed all remaining evidence of the dastardly deed shortly after, along with a glass of milk. I still have the eggs the bunny laid though, the ones with Peanut Butter centers. Far less cholesterol than the ones laid by chickens. The chicken gave it's all for Easter dinner tonight. Bar-B-Que with plenty of sauce. Still a little too cool outside to eat it out there though.

Just finished a very good book by Nicklas Nakk Och Daf, called the Wolf and the Watchman. Written in 1793 in Stockholm,

Don’t remember any rules that say you can’t have eggs, jelly beans and chocolate  later this year!  🤣

Here in New South Wales the Police Commissioner announced a special exemption to the current Public Health Order to allow the Easter Bunny to do his rounds - he was on the TV news making the announcement and, to his great credit, he did it with a straight face. :D

Went to Home Depot and got my Easter basket, a metal exterior door for the garage for only 60 dollars!

Yayh!! Regular price 240, this one along with another two (sadly wrong size for the house) was waiting in the discounted area.

The Admiral and I are happy celebrating a cheap Easter.
See my input at "what did you receive today".

Killed  a chocolate chicken this morning  :dancetl6: 

and then I ate it

 

To anyone concerned about how the chicken was killed. I used my table knife and chopped her head twice :10_1_10:

 

One of my late father's rules.
If you have to kill an animal, do it quickly and as painlessly as possible.

 

For some reason I also do this with chocolate figures ;)

 

Happy Easter to everyone

Today we had to put down our 13 year old Yorky. Notice the color when she was younger? Lately she blended in with the white bed. Liver failure.

Sorry to hear about your yorky Brian. I have a a 13 year old yorky that recently gave us a scare when her labs showed liver numbers out of whack. We put her on a supplement for 2 months and the numbers returned to normal so we're hopeful she'll be around a little longer.

Picked up my wife at the hospital.  On Friday she complained of stomach pain.  Both of us hoped that it would go away because the hospital ER was the last place either of us wanted to visit.  By early Saturday AM it had become apparent that she needed help.  Called the hospital’s special Coronavirus hotline and spoke to an actual person who said “bring her down, the ER is not busy, people are staying away.

 

Our hospital has a sally port that serves the ER.  Drove up to an intercom and told them why I was there.  An overhead door opened and I drove in.  Three masked attendants helped her out of the car and told me to leave- Visitors including next of kin not allowed.  The last I saw of her she was wheeled inside.  A second overhead door opened and I drove out and back home.

 

A couple of hours later she called and said that the CT scan indicated that tissue within her abdominal cavity was blocking her small intestine and that our primary care DR had been in the hospital making his rounds and was coordinating things. Two hours later a surgeon performed laparoscopic surgery that allowed the intestine to function.  The next day, Sunday she was ready to come home.  She was on a special wing reserved for emergency surgery and had a great view of Lake Superior.  In addition, the nursing staff wasn’t busy and treated her like a queen.

 

Now she’s home and well enough to boss me around.  When I returned from the grocery she made sure that I understood next time, paper not plastic.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
