I'll give you a hint, Easter hasn't started out too well here at holtieshouse.

Hope yours is a lot better.

That's what I call "black humour" lol ! Fortunately no kids around here, that would take all the illusions !

Jim said...

Poor bunny! I think Warren's 'westing wabbit' will fare better.
I am praying for all you at the Holtishouse that things will be much better real soon.

Dear Peter,

I hope you are ok...

Look on the bright side there. Rabbit stew isn't such a bad dish.

Poor Easter Bunny!!!
I hope he had a replacement.


I just popped over to wish you a Happy Easter weekend. I hope things improve around there.

karisma said...

Well lets just say things can only get better! For that one bunny there are at least another fifty hiding in the bush behind him.

May your Easter weekend be filled with joy and happiness rather than dead bunnies and eggs. Take care.

Paul said...

I saw your comment over at Jamie Dawn's joint. My First Wife and I will offer prayers for your daughter and you. God bless.

Despite all that, we hope you have a blessed and happy family Easter.

Jamie Dawn said...

I am so sorry to hear about your daughter's brain tumor.
I prayed for her and for you which is really all that I can do. I just want you to know that I'm so sad that she is facing this brain tumor and surgery.
I'm sure she is nervous, but she wants to be strong for your sake and others. I hope this tumor can be completely removed and that treatment will be successful. You did not say whether they thought it is cancerous or not. Maybe you don't know.
My best wishes and most sincere prayers are with you all as you face this together. I hope to hear good news from you soon about her health.

Oh Peter....I'm sending my prayers along to your daughter...and to you. I pray that the tumor will be successfully removed and that she'll have a complete and speedy recovery. Many hugs to you both....

That poor bunny....ohhhhhh!

I trust no animals were harmed in the making of this post!

Hi Pop
Carolyn talked to Vicki on Wednesday.
She said she might go to the footy (last night) so at least the Cats win will have cheered her up a little.
I'll call her over the weekend.
Lots of prayers being prayed for her from the look of the comments, mine are in there too.

I love you Dad
Take care


Tiggerlane said...

So sorry to hear of the struggles you're enduring right now...sending love and prayers your way. And hoping that you have the strength for both you and Vicki...hang in there.

JunieRose2005 said...

Dear Peter,

I can't express how sorry I am for what you and your family are facing right now.

Good thoughts and prayers will continue that all will soon be well with your Vicki!

Take care,


Miss Cellania said...

I'll be saying prayers for Vicki, too.

Jack K. said...

Peter, may you all be blessed. I will add Vicki to my prayer list, and send her Reiki energy.

Let's see if we can change that tumor to humor. It will add to her recuperative power.

In the midst of all this, I wish you and your family a very happy Easter.

Cazz said...

Im so sorry to her about Vicki, please wish her all my best and special hugs to you and her family. Hope all goes well and her recovery is a swift one.

My thoughts are with you all
