You should put your Easter Egg Hunt story here, from the Weather topic!  Smiley Very Happy

Since you insist, from the weather thread: Smiley Wink

 

I remember the worst Easter egg hunt we ever took our kids to. I was visiting my brother down in Miami and the egg hunt was on the real "Miami Beach". A local radio station had buried plastic eggs in the sand, said there was money in them, and blocked that part of the beach off with yellow tape.

 

Man, was there a lot of people there and I don't think some of them even had kids with them. Right at 11am they "opened the gates" and a stampede of people hit the beach with adults digging in the sand like dogs. Our kids only got a few eggs and the cheapo radio station was only putting like 3 pennies to a nickel in each plastic egg. Terrible scene with a bunch of kids crying and never again! :smileysad:

 

And to top it off it was hot, about 85 degrees, with the sun beating down and no shade. Not my idea of an Easter egg hunt. :smileywink:

Well......when I clicked on that link I was immediately taken to a screen wanting me to sign in to MSN.  No story on the cat.  Weird.

Re: Weekly Off-Topic Thread #231

Thanks SPD.  Interesting story.....yeh amazing story.  Poor old cat must have been a good hunter to have survived so long on her own.

 

I want to take this opportunity to wish all my friends on here a wonderful Easter.  It's an absolutely gorgeous day here in Missouri.  Not a cloud in the sky.  After last night's low temperature of 32.3 degrees we now have 60.6 and rising.  Alfie and I have had our morning walk and he has been fed his breakfast.  We spotted a fox from a distance this morning.  When the fox saw us it wandered off into the deep grass down in the woods by the creek to the north of our home.

 

Right now mom and I are enjoying, as we often do, the Sunday morning broadcast of beautiful music from the Mormon Tabernacle in Salt Lake City.  It's on channel 1567, the BYU channel, if you would enjoy a half hour of lovely and inspirational music.....every Sunday morning at 10:30 CDT.

 

A little later we'll head over to the Kansas side of the line to our oldest son's home.  He and his wife and family have invited us to share their Easter dinner.  It'll be a crowd....probably....with the three kids and, most likely, one boyfriend and one girlfriend.

 

Best wishes from us all.

I like how the comment section after the article shammed them for letting their cats outside since all animals long to go outdoors its part of their nature and it would be cruel

to not allow them the opportunity.

Happy Easter to you, too, Phil!

 

Well, that story was from Germany.  I know in the UK, people are chastised for making cats stay indoors!  Maybe there's more animal cruelty in our country?

 

Cats should be kept indoors for their own safety.  If you have lots of land away from busy streets, that's another story.  Some cats have always lived outdoors and cannot adjust to being indoors. Smiley Sad

 

And if cats are outside in the US, they are blamed for killing birds (not all do), which is their *nature*.  Can't win.

The missing cat story is amazing.  I heard a story on animal's amazing skills about 20 years ago and the key example was a trucker in Australia who stopped his 18 (36?) wheeler at a rest stop and to let his dog do his business.  The dog started chasing a rabbit and he was on a tight schedule and had to leave the dog behind Smiley Sad Smiley Mad  18 months later, the dog bounded into his front yard and into the owners arms.  1500 miles away! Wow!

My aunt had a cat that got left behind in a move Cat Mad but he mysteriously showed up months later at their new place, about 100 miles away.

 

HOW dogs and cats do this, I don't know, but they sure have one up on us humans!  No maps, signs, or GPS!   Cat LOL
