Easter tree-02018Happy Easter 2018.

We had snow on Easter 2018. It was a great snow but quickly melting as the temps got above freezing.

Ben, Casey, Amelia and Arthur came over for an Easter Egg Hunt. We think Amelia and Arthur found all the Easter eggs that the Easter Bunny hid. I guess that will be confirmed by the end of the week. We ate candy and Easter eggs and ham sandwiches. What a great day.

I spent some of the day preparing the April play list for the Flat Rock Irregulars. We, the  Irregulars, survived March. March is our biggest gig month of the year. We played six gigs in 2 days from the 16th to the 17th. We were excited because St Patrick’s Day fell on a Saturday this year. We started the parade on a Saturday and it St Patrick’s day came around again to Saturday. Great fun! Play on.
