I hope all of you had a wonderful Easter. While we must never forget that the importance of Easter is the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I’m sure God will indulge his children in a little fun while we celebrate the joy of his risen Son.
The above basket looks like a pretty standard Easter egg basket, maybe a little boring. In our family Devoted Spouse and I like to spice things up a bit with our baskets. Sometimes we put movies, books, or other goodies in them. There are always different kinds of candy especially robin’s eggs (the little malted milk balls that I’m totally addicted to), and Cadbury cream eggs. We sometimes add just a little personal memento and of course there is usually a chocolate bunny. This year for Devoted Spouse I added one of those strange contraptions you use on your grill where you add a can of beer and then pretty much impale a chicken onto the beer can – well this device helps the whole mess not fall over onto the grill. I thought it was a pretty cool little Easter gift.
But this year if an award was handed out for the most unusual Easter basket, Devoted Spouse would have won it hands down. I had some candy and there was a movie, tons of chocolate robin’s eggs and the obligatory fake green grass. But nestled into the grass was something I never would have thought of in a million years; his own Bersa 380 handgun. Devoted Spouse gave this gun to me because he knows how much I enjoy using it at the range. His comment was, “I got my first handgun 54 years ago and this is the first one I’ve ever given up.” I’m so glad he thinks I’m worthy of it – it’s an awesome pistol and alot of fun to shoot. This has to be the coolest Easter egg basket I’ve ever had and no amount of chocolate bunnies could have made it any better. The Bersa is now officially mine.
I’m beginning to like this Easter basket idea — unfortunately Devoted Spouse will have to work extra hard on next year’s basket!
Here are pics of the baskets – his is on the left; the boring one. Mine is on the right with the gun nestled inside.
This is what it looks like minus the basket. (I don’t need no stinkin’ basket…)
I hope you all had a lovely Easter. Let’s see now…what’s the next holiday coming up…Mother’s Day…well, I’m nobody’s mother except maybe EmmaLou, the Golden Destroyer — I wonder if she has a handgun she’d like to wrap up for me, too…
