We had a really nice weekend with both families we also did some birding while we were up there too. Friday we stopped by my son's house to see the Grandkids and give them their Easter Baskets and my younger daughter stayed by my son's house for the weekend. It was so nice to see them and my son also cooked out on his grill. Our Granddaughter even got Grandpa to get on the floor to play with blocks it was funny she would knock the blocks down to get Grandpa to keep building with her. Both of the Grandkids kept taking their bunnies we got them all over the house with them. There was no snow in Shawano Wi which I was really surprised.
Then we finally made it to Drew's parents house were we spent the weekend and there was some snow up there and the lakes are still frozen. It was so nice to get out of the car for the night. We sat up taking with his mom and dad and I started to get really tired and I was yawning from being tired with driving all day long. Then on Saturday we went and did some birding and then spent the day with his family is was so nice to see his sister and his brother-in-laws daughter. His brother-in-law was home sick with the flu we missed seeing him. I was a really nice day just being able to sit and talk with the family and we also got to see some pictures that his dad put on to a dvd.
Then Sunday we said goodbye to Drew's parents and we went to my older sister's house to spend time with my family and on the way we had to pick up my daughter at my son's house. When we walked into my sister's house we got attacked by our Grandkids. Our Grandson son kept saying Papa he wanted Grandpa. Everyone was sitting down to eat when we walked in the door so we got our food and the Grandkids wanted to sit on our laps while we ate our dinner so we had to share our food with them. At the same time we found out that one of my nieces is separated from her husband and the kids are moving her out of her apartment that day. The day was really nice to see everyone and to talk to everyone until my younger sister blew up and stormed out the door with something that someone had said and she scared the little ones really bad with it.
Here are some pictures from the weekend:
This is Skylee with her peeps on a stick and her bunny she is 2 years old!
This is Ace with his bunny he is one year old!
Deviled eggs my son made for Easter!
This is a Broad Winged Hawk I found in the Menominee Reservation and I was going about fifty miles and hour and seen it on the side of the road in a tree. I stopped and turned the car around to find it again to get a picture. At first I didn't know what I seen in the tree then I found it and took some pictures. This was on Sunday going towards Shawano.
"Racine — For decades Frank Lloyd Wright fans have flocked to
the S.C. Johnson & Son corporate headquarters to ogle the
beautifully designed and innovative buildings that inspired employees to
invent consumer products found in kitchen cabinets throughout the
tourists trooped through the great workroom inside the administration
building and craned their heads to look up at the giant lily pad-like
structures supporting the roof — the famous Wisconsin architect compared
them to a glade of trees — they stopped to take pictures of the glass
tube-enclosed research tower, glowing like a candle in the center of the
complex. And they asked: Can we go inside? "Always the answer was: Sorry, no. "But starting
May 2 the Johnson Wax research tower will open to the public for the
first time. The prospect of seeing one of the few surviving
Wright-designed corporate offices from the inside has prompted intense
interest with most of the free tours already
reserved throughout May and into June. Two-hour tours of the
administration building and research tower will be offered from 9 a.m.
to 2:30 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays."
Hello, my sparrows and robins!How are you?We received a real taste of warm weather over the Easter weekend, but
now we’re back in the cooler.“They” say
the aftereffects of this past winter will last a long time.We’ll probably have a cool spring.Maybe even more snow.A friend told me yesterday that up north
there’s still snow on the ground.Oh
my.Most of our early spring blooming plants
can take some snow, but a hard frost will nip them.
The spring cleaning continues at home, both indoors and out.I thank the Lord that I have Señor Zanza and
Junior to do the heavy work outside.If
only the weather would cooperate.One
day it’s in the 60’s, the next, the 40’s.And we’re cleaning part-time as I have my business to run, Junior has
school, and Señor Zanza has what he calls his “enterprise” to tend to.
[You know, I still don’t know what the “enterprise” is or
where it’s located, but Señor Zanza leaves home every workday for 8-10
hours. I don’t know where he goes or
what he does.Of course, attempts to use
my psychic powers on him are useless because of his powers.He can’t read my mind, either.We meet in shock when we’re both reading
Junior’s mind.That poor boy...]
Attention: I have a suggestion to make to the powers that be
in downtown Racine.I know that you have your First Fridays (and
even some Third) and various other events and celebrations throughout the
year.However, your big one, Party On
The Pavement, needs to be balanced by a Spring Fling early in the year.Spring is the time of rebirth and the
celebration would be conducive to a great crowd.By the way, I think that’s the 3rd
or 4th suggestion that I’ve given you. Wise up.
Another announcement I have to make is that I officially
proclaim that I back both the medical and responsible recreational use of
marijuana and/or its components.I
believe that it should be regulated in a manner similar to alcohol.Taxed, too.Unlike alcohol, I believe the tolerance level for users driving under
the influence should be 0%.With other
states decriminalizing or legalizing marijuana, I don’t think it’ll be too long
before researchers come up with a portable marijuana detector similar to a
breathalyzer.For the sake of honesty, I
have to admit that some components of my own elixirs and potions may contain a
small dose of cannabis, just like many other medications may contain alcohol as
one of their components.The dosage in
my products is so small as to be undetectable.If someone were to try to get “high” using my products, he or she would
have to consume trainloads of products to get any effect.I don’t think the effect would be pleasant.
Here’s a short, cute video to brighten your day:
Thank you my dear friends for visiting my blog today.I love entertaining guests.“You are a stranger but once here,” they say,
but actually I get stranger every day.
"The Government Wide Financial Analysis revealed that difference
between the the net assets and net liabilities fell by $49,153,636 from
2009 until 2012. That’s a NEGATIVE. In 2009 net assets exceeded
liabilities by $271,291,402 and in 2012 that number was $222,137,766. On
average, that is a loss of $16,384,545 per year. "Even more alarming is the City’s growing Other Post Employment
Benefits obligation, which grew from $55,005,102 in 2009 to a staggering
$115,787,911 in 2012. That’s an increase of $60,782,809 in ONLY 3
years. Further compounding the problem is that in 2009 those promised
OPEB were UNDERFUNDED by $15.4 Million, which grew to $18.5 Million in
2012. "Then in 2012, the City experienced a shortfall of $2.5 Million in the
budget for it’s self-funded Health Insurance fund, in spite of having
budgeted a whopping $18.7 Million for this expense. "In the meantime spending at all levels increased with no realistic
plan from City Hall being formulated to control those costs. The
financial crunch time grows closer."
