Sure Signs


Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend.  The weather was beautiful here.  I’ve come to the conclusion that old man Winter has finally packed his bags and moved on.  One sure sign is the kids playing in the crawfish tub.

Another is a yard full of friends and family sitting around in shorts, visiting and eating.

The main entrée. We cooked about 150 pounds over three hours.  Our newest renter, the forester from Indiana, said they didn’t have anything this good back home.  By the time we feed him some BBQ and fried catfish, he may never go back North.

Crawfish, corn, potato’s, sausage, onions, and mushrooms.

There was fish and burgers for the few that didn’t care for the mudbugs.

Another sign is just being able to sit on the ground, and discuss a thing or two.


Texas has its bluebonnets to herald Spring.  Down here we also have fields abloom.  Only major difference is ours are yellow, rather than blue.

I’m about to wear the cover off a Benchmark atlas of Utah.  Lots of interesting places, so little time!!!!!………….jc


  1. I'm one of those failures...can't seem to acquire the palate for mudbugs!

    Love all the yellow and the huge yards just perfect for large gatherings. Hang on...your time in the sun (and the rocks) is fast approaching!

  2. Can I come next Easter?! Great to be surrounded by so much love...

  3. I'm afraid I would have been one of those with a burger. :(

  4. Your yellow flowers are pretty too. Hmmm, I might have been at the burger table too.

  5. What a great setting!!!!!...So in your neck of the woods , the Easter Bunny brings "Crawffish" to crack open rather then Eggs.. :) .....BTW, don't be "whining" about not being on the road...Earliest I can head out is mid to late July...and thats my first trip of the year... :) Thanks for sharing your Family's Easter....Horst sends
    ps..I like the yellow field shots!!!

  6. I sure would love to have some crawfish! There is so much to see and do in Utah, we only scratched the surface!
