Weekly Image of Life: Easter Time

A guy with a lot of Easter spirit.

A guy with a lot of Easter spirit.


I’m a little late on this one … but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to show this guy’s Easter spirit at the horse track. I don’t know who he is or how much money he might have won, but when you see someone with such spirit you gotta take a picture and wonder why you didn’t bring your white suit and ears to race track.

Yes. The track. We spent Easter at the race track — a tradition going on about eight years now, maybe more. But even though I wasn’t wearing pastel colors and bunny ears, I still got lucky that day. I won 37 bucks on Foxy Boss to win. Good horse. I made Vietnamese Noodle Salad with something called fish sauce for the first time and it rocked. I avoided the crazy parents when I signed up for the early Easter Egg Hunt, and my kids got plenty of plastic colorful eggs. And while everyone was running for cover in their yellow dresses, me and my Lucky Jeans beat the pouring rain on Easter Sunday. Overall a good one.

      Isn’t he awesome? I had no idea who this guy was but I was like hey … he went for it on the Easter thing. All out! Either you have spirit or you don’t. No half-assing it. He reminds me to go all out or go home. 🙂

    Good for you! Your kids will treasure such cool memories, plus 37 bucks is 37 bucks.

      Yes! That’s right I am so glad you see that too. 37 bucks was a big deal for me 🙂 contributed to some dinner 🙂

      Yeah … I need me some bunny years especially when I’m tired. They will probably pump up my spirit when it’s on E.

      I saw this guy near the big screen and I knew I had to snap his shot. Quite a character and he seemed to be having a really good time.

    That is a fun and exciting tradition. And Mr. bunny still came to party as well. What a cool guy! Belated Happy Easter. It is still Spring and traces of the Easter bunny and his friends are still everywhere.

      It was definitely a cool tradition that was started accidentally, but we continue it. Mr. Bunny cracked me up…I had to take the pic.
