Can't pass those chocolate covered marshmallow rabbits in the store. First I bite off the ears -- yummm -- and the rest is history!

Black! There must be alot of you cuz now they just sell bags of black.

Does anyone "blow out" eggs and dye them anymore? Or are plastic the way to go?

Black jelly beans!!! smilesmile

The "old grouch" is addicted to black jelly beans, went to Wallyworld looking for some and was very disappointed by their Easter selections. Hardly any jelly beans and no all black ones. Last year they had a ton of them. Maybe I will make some pickled eggs for my Easter basket.

The best thing about the black ones, is that there are enough people that don't like them, that they leave more for us that do. smile

Oh yummo...me too, but they are on my no no list. Another thing the "old grouch" loves is Peeps. My favorites used to be the chocolate covered creme eggs in maple or pineapple flavor. I don't know if they even make them anymore.

Peeps are everywhere in stores - I had a hard time getting assorted jellybeans. Never saw the black this year. They say people are eating more candy because of the economy maybe thats why the black are gone!!

So does the old grouch let the peeps sit and harden, or does he eat them fresh??? I have an aunt that waits until after Easter and then loads up on peeps and lets them harden before she eats them. crazy

    • Hotspot outdoors of course!
    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
