That is a pretty collage. I read your posts – first I could not stop admiring your sunset. Here we do not have a window toward the rising sun, and if we did, we would see a bunch of pine trees. Then I wondered about your party for 200 people for egg hunt – how many eggs did you have to buy? Or do you have enough hens to produce that many eggs? I think the largest party I ever had in my house was 25 people and that was years and years ago. I don’t even know the next door neighbors who moved in 3 years ago! I met then when walking in the snow a while back and gave them my name, email, phone number, but they never reciprocated. Even though I have lived here for decades they heard my accent and asked where I was from…. I did not have enough of a drawl I guess. I find people around here are not very friendly if you are not from the South. I am pleased that people demonstrated in front of CNN in Atlanta to get rid of Lou Dobbs. While he was renting and raving against immigrants the crime rate against immigrants around here rose by 40%. I thought all Americans had been immigrants, at some point. But I did find that the original Americans were very friendly. We talked to many people when in the Cherokee Indian Reservation. (sorry for the long comment, but I don’t comment every time!)

It's the end of a long, tiring, but ultimately happy day. Sunshine and old friends and little kids and lots of good food. . . doesn't get much better than this.

Thanks to all of you for the Easter wishes ...

Sam, we had some terrific barbecue and an amazing assortment of potluck dishes.-- one of our neighbors is a cheesemaker and brought four amazing raw milk cheeses (two hard, two soft) that could hold their heads up anywhere.

Star -- hoping that you got that beautiful day!

Miss Yves -- I'll be looking for more pictures of that adorable grandson!

Callie - I know you had an egg hunt today . . . as usual!

Vagabonde -- Out party is a potluck -- which means that all the guests bring food to share. We provide the barbecued pork and a keg of beer, water and lemonade and the guests bring casseroles and salads and desserts and all manner of good food. Those who have children bring dyed eggs to hide for the egg hunt.

I'm sorry you have not found people to be friendly -- I think the 'neighborliness' that was once a hallmark of small town life has been eroded over the years as people's lives become busier, alas!

And you are certainly right in saying that all Americans were of immigrant stack -- actually, that would even include the Native Americans if the theory that they came from Asia across the Bering Strait is correct.

Thanks you, Victoria!
