Happy Easter, Everyone!!

I woke up Easter Sunday morning about 5:30 a.m. I went downstairs with a minimum of fuss (so as not to wake anyone), made a cup of coffee and read on the couch until Carla came down with Whiskey.

Jake appeared soon after and we all had coffee (well, I had another one) and chatted.

After a bit, we all went our separate ways to get ready for the morning’s main event.

I myself shaved, showered and got dressed in my Sunday best. So, did Jake and Carla (although I think Carla skipped the shaving part – her face is as smooth as a baby’s butt, LOL!)

Then we headed out.

Sidebar: This was more or less a replay of an Easter, say, 10 years ago. Back then, they lived in Westland and we went to an Irish restaurant on Haggarty (in Northville?) and had a traditional Irish breakfast buffet.

But, today, we went to the English Bulldog Pub near Columbia and had a traditional English breakfast buffet.

We were a bit early, but that only meant we were first in line. It also meant the baked beans (an English breakfast staple) weren’t out yet. But we soldiered on…

It was excellent!

Two things, though: The Scotch egg was a little too spicy for my taste and Carla got something called an Irish egg roll (I passed). She said it was like a normal egg roll, but with corned beef and cabbage inside. She said it was good, but it sounded a bit too “hip” to be real, for me.

We got back just before noon.

I started a load of laundry and we all changed into more comfortable clothes.

After a bit, we all started watching the six, hour-long, episodes of “The Jinx” about Robert Durst. I’d been following the case in the news (I’m a news junkie) and was fascinated.

We stopped after the fifth episode and ate dinner. It was a meatloaf Jake had made, with mashed potatoes and sweet corn. It was delicious!!!

Note to my Brother Carl: I am proud to say that I finished the entire meal without getting any meatloaf, mashed potatoes or corn up my nose! So there!!!

We watched the final episode, and then some taped shows until 8:30 p.m., when Jake and Carla said they were turning in.

I realized I was beat, too. So, I went to bed. I packed most of my suitcase and then read in bed until about 10:30 p.m. when I went to sleep.


  1. Congratulations.....Carla has finally taught you to eat meatloaf

  2. @ GPF: No, my Mother taught me how to eat meatloaf: As quickly as possible so I could get seconds BEFORE all my greedy older brothers asked!

  3. Thanks for coming Dad. Uncle Carl, Happy Easter and you are right...I taught him! :)

  4. @ Carla: You're welcome. Thanks for having me. I enjoyed the sh*t out of it, as I always do.

    One question; Did the Tilted Kilt have an Easter buffet? I really enjoy breasteraunts! Maybe next time...
