Ted’s Easter Escapades

Ted makes himself at home in Uncle Z’s bed.

Ted’s most recent escapade involved a trip to the nursing home on Easter Sunday. What made this trip so eggstra special was the fact that we were giving out handmade scarves to the resident ladies. I’ve included some eggsceptional photos below. These ladies were absolutely thrilled to get these eggstra special gifts from little Ted.  Ted met a new resident this week named Paula who was so eggstatic to pet a dog. In fact, she told me that it had been an eggstremely long time since she had the pleasure of patting a puppy. It’s moments like this that keep us going back to this place for a dose of good old-fashioned unadulterated joy. Wasn’t it the Dalai Lama who said something like if you want to be happy, practice compassion? And if you want to make others happy, practice compassion? This is not a rhetorical question. I think I’m right, but I can’t be sure, and I don’t feel like googling right now. The good thing is that none of the ladies felt the need to eggschange their scarves for other colors. Even if they had, I would have certainly granted them an eggsemption and let them choose another. But seriously though, they were absolutely eggshilarated to receive them.

Tanya and Rosa hold on to Ted for me while I take their photo with their new fancy scarves!

I cannot take credit for the fine crochet work here. It was all my Auntie Mem who is an eggsceptionally talented crafter.

Miss Molly says “Good Golly, thanks for the scarf!” Seriously, is she glowing or what?

Here’s hoping you all had an eggscellent Easter!

  1. Lovely of you to give out the uniquely crafted scarves. Looks like a fun piece to get the elderly happy and going. Definitely they will remember Teddy after this. Jolly nice of you and you will be richly blessed (both you and teddy) for all the kindness you give to the elderly.

  2. Wowsers! What a ginormous amount of talent (in the scarves) and love (in the gesture of spending Easter with the elderly)! Ted’s escapes never get old and I can’t wait to see what other adventures are in store. Did he get his usual dose of kishka for being such a good lad?

  3. Teddy and Christine–You two are an eggcellent eggample of compassion and word fun. I look forward to reading about more of your eggcaspades (and more chances to freak out my autocorrect in my responses). –Glenda
