2017 Family Easter Picture
April 16, 2017
1. The Easter weather in the Baltimore region was fantastic. It reached a high of 87 degrees and there were only a few small passing sprinkles later during the day. Our family was smaller this year, sadly, but no less enthusiastic.

2. Eleven games into the 162 game season, the Orioles have the best record in Baseball! Yes, I am only showing the American League, but trust me, it's true!

3. The family Easter photo was taken from a new perspective.

4. I learned that I am not a drone pilot.  I killed a drone yesterday. Ugh!

5. Until yesterday, I had not played full-speed, outdoors hide-n-seek in many years. I can still do a flat out sprint, it seems.

6. Children make Easter fun!

Quote for the Week



"Now, some in this country say, 'Freedom is fine for us, but we can't worry about it for everyone else. Let's not stick our necks out anywhere.' Have they forgotten that freedom was not won here without the help of others? Have they forgotten that people who turn their backs on friends often lose what they cherish most for themselves? Have they forgotten that freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction?"

Ronald Reagan
