EASTER 1958 UPDATE

As in most traditional Christian households, an important part of our Easter observance was having the second-oldest male child dress as Zorro.

In my house it was Spiderman, but then we weren't Presbyterian...

Dave, you're stealing all the black jelly beans while Zorro's distracted, aren't you?

When my son was 4, he thought Batman was the spirit of *all* holidays. The mask and cape were essential; all other parts of the costume were optional.

And this picture clears up the question raised by the previous one--"What is Dave wearing?" I didn't want to say it out loud, but it looked almost kilt-like

*easter* zorro--which is all that counts, right?

are we in "memory lane" mode today?

Is that a blue shirt you're wearing, Dave?

p.s. charming... and totally adorable.

Your poor brother has been terribly misunderstood - he is combining Zorro and Easter to become...Zoraster! (aka Zarathrustra) And I think he wears a mask - see the 3rd one down on the left-
Zoraster & His Wacky Friends

I included all his buddies when I noticed how similar everyone's mantra was - Z has "Do not do unto others whatever is injurious to yourself." Obviously a complete rip-off from us Catholics, but happy Zorro-Easter anyway! ;)

And thanks again, Dave, for making us laugh.

Thus SNORKed Annie.

At least it wasn't naked Zorro.

Your disappointment is showing, Bumblechen.

Blue, for heaven's sake. They're kids. What do you think I am? Huh?

Now a cute adult in a naked Zorro costume, say Antonio Banderas, that's something else altogether.

*grabs at slipping halo*

Quick on the protest, aren't we? I hope there's nothing that should be read into that.....

*Wonders who's at the doghouse tonight*

Why don't you check in there and see, Meanie?

We'll call you when dinner's ready - you just wait....:)

Hmmm....hard-boiled eggs, peeps, black jelly beans (Hey, Dave was here!)

Blue~ Try leftover tuna helper. If you're lucky.

Meanie - those aren't black jelly beans...Tiny forgot to clean up after his baby bunnies.

*Choke! Spit! PTUUIII!*

Where is Thumper, anyhow, and is he almost done with that name? Or do I have go and get all solidarical in return for his earlier show of the-ness? Actually, given his habits, maybe he'll have forgotten about all that.....?

*And I meant that for both the tuna helper AND the bunny beans*

Hey! That's my supper you're dissing there.

*adjusts Bumble's halo*

*snorks* at Blue's bunny beans!

Please help yourself, S-Girl. I'm, er, quite full. Bumble - do you need a couple bucks for some actual food?

If you've got the money, honey, I've got the time.

Bumble - You got tuna in there too, or is it just the Helper, all by itself?

Actually I don't have the time. I'm working on a ridiculous map project for my history class. It'll take me days to finish, and it's only worth 15 points. Teachers ought to be shot for making you do assignments like that.

Yeah, Bumble ... try some popcorn, or some ice cream ...

(Whut about Zorro? Would he like some ice cream with those jelly beans?)

KDF~ There's tuna in it.

Phew. And PTUUII!!!

*Chooses to take the high road in reference to Bumble's monetary appeal*

*Starts countdown*

sure it wasnt halloween?

I gave up eating tuna about 2 years ago. And I feel like a better person for it.
And tuna sandwiches were one of my most favorite things in the world. They were what I ate when I was in a jury trial. Lots of protein for energy, no gas, and not so filling that you fell asleep in court in the afternoon session.

But jury trials and tuna sandwiches are a thing of the past. *sigh*

I do however, make tuna noodle casserole, with the cream of mushroom soup, noodles and peas. I just leave out the tuna.

Thanks for all the fish news, El.

Meanie, Thumper informed me very early this morning that he would be "away" today, so your going to have to rely on yourself.
Help is NOT on the way, sorry! :)

We had the Davy Crockett raccoon hats, and fringed leather shirts, with guns and holsters. IT was so cool. It was the one day I could shot at my brother for eating all the pink jellybeans.

Now it's spongebob.

Thanks for sharing the pictues...now we know why your brother plays harmonica.

Thanks for all the fish news, El.

*snork*

Anytime Blue. Tomorrow I may discuss meatloaf - or pot roast. :)

Toodles!

*zips out*

That's a first... ;-)

And likely the last, as well...;-)

That certainly looks like an exterior brick wall behind the boys in the picture. Perhaps it's one of those unfinished surfaces Dave mentioned earlier? It sure looks like the outside of my dad's house - red brick with grey mortar...and the same dang wood floors.

'Dang wood floors' are much sought after now.

I remember when I used to prefer carpet because it didn't show the dirt (ick!).

Pssst...El...VERY amusing use of "your". You're several steps ahead of us this morning.

Right? I say, right???

I gave up eating tuna about 2 years ago.

Why?

*thanking God I am the oldest male*

And yet again, you protect your brother's identity.
