Happy Easter, wheelies!!

I don’t say this much, but I’m really thankful to be part of this community and I have to say I’ve learned something from all of you that are here now and those that have moved on.

So, thanks.

Sven: we feel the same about you and all the wheelizens past and present.

Happy Easter, GN!

Hi, dv8 and Mac!

In that vein I could posted “Hey I can see my house from here.”

Har!

Hope everyone’s services are technical glitch-free today.

(And to Hell with all of the goons who are threatening legal repercussions for folks planning to attend drive-in services today. We. Are. Neither. Wards. Nor. Property. Of. The. State.)

=================

Paddy was correct; yesterday was Lambie(NotTehPassoverKind)PieK’s birfday. Instead of a cake for just the two of us, we got a box of chocolate truffles. And I pan-fried her a ribeye.

Needless to say, this place is extry-special to both of us…and not just ’cause Brenda and I found one another. 😉

TeX’s birfday is next Saturday.

BBL.

I’m a little nervous about turning 30. Happy Easter, Tex!

Hah! I didn’t realize you weren’t an old codger like the rest of us!! What, were you a teenager during the beginning of the wheel? That’s extraordinary, unless this is an inside joke I’m not in on, that is.

Sven’s just joking with us.

I was sorta leaning that way, although I don’t know everyone as well as Harper does.

Hey Sven: Are you the same as Svenbonk, another nickname I remember from the old days?

Brenda said, “Thank you, thank you, thank you with exclamation points!!!!!”

(Yes, that’s precisely how it was dictated to me.)

Isn’t there a virtual pants filter for that?

Heh. So unwanted hugging, touching, or kissing is no longer sexual assault? When did the libs change the rules?

I wonder if you should pass that information on to HR?

It appears the brave truth-tellers at the NYT have taken down this Tweet.

A blessed Easter, Gerbil Nation!
He is risen! He is risen Indeed!
Good morning, dv8, Mac, Fatwa, and Sven!

Hope everyone’s services are technical glitch-free today.

Thank you, Fatwa. At my church, the service was recorded Friday, so it should be fine. Mrs. Paddy’s church live streams twice -- one to YOuTube and the other to FaceBook (they don’t have the bandwidth to live stream to both, simultaneously) -- and they had technical problems on Maundy Thursday.

Happy Easter, Paddy.

Technical difficulties -- I hope the congregation prays for some competent IT admins.

I’m sorry to hear about the technical difficulties during Mass, Sven.

Well, if it’s in our Newspaper Of Record, likely so.

Technical difficulties — I hope the congregation prays for some competent IT admins.

Heh. Sorry they’re having problems.

Perhaps a Senior Technical Writer could help ensure this doesn’t happen again? 😉

I was a protestant growing up, so I never attended mass, only weight.
