The entire hood and a great deal of the city are dealing with the aftermath of our hail storms last week.  The roofing companies äre coming out of thin air. 

Between the insurance company and making a decision on a roofing company, it would send the sanest running for the hills.

The other big news is the almost completed new sidewalk on the edge of the hood for the children to walk to the neighborhood school.  Progress!

Meanwhile, the hood drums are beating over the panhandling.  It seems the residents are not happy with the standing at intersections and asking for money.  It is illegal in the city, but my heart still goes out to anyone who has to resort to begging.

Today is the annual Easter egg hunt for the hood children in our local park. 


There are reports of a pink eyed  rabbit roaming around looking for baskets of eggs!

Still living life large
Here in the hood
Happy Easter Weekend!


  1. Years ago, in Mediterranean countries tradition was that they boiled eggs and then painted them for Easter. Don't know where the tradition of pink eyed rabbits started.

    Hope you did not have much roof damage after the hail storms.

    Wishing you a Blessed and Peaceful Easter, Lulu. God bless.

    1. Interesting Victor! Thank you for sharing!

  2. the last photo, lol. Have a beautiful weekend. Happy Easter to you, Lulu.

    1. My littles are not too sure about the mad hare either, Linda!

  3. So sorry to hear about all the hail damage. We've been lucky in that our area has escaped much of that. Hope everyone gets the help they need.
    It's nice when a neighborhood has sidewalks. Give a place for the panhandlers to camp out. We had some out here in the country when the Depression first hit. They moved on, though, because we kept asking them for money.
    Hope your day is blessed. ~:)

    1. Laughing, Sparky! My question is were they generous?
