DYLANism: the Truth about Easter ~ Busted

~~ here is an oldie but goodie that I saw in my Reader yesterday as I reread this year’s Easter Post. This post from 3 years ago was an intro for things to come…..


Easter morning went off without a hitch this year. Through a series of poor communication, that my family is getting famous for, our girls ended up with four Easter baskets each. [same this year in 2018 ugh…something has to change!!] We have enough Easter candy in our home to fill a small Dollar General!

Dylan! Where did all that candy go?

Daddy! Whah do you mmmmean I have too much cammmdie. Dis isn’t mumpch at all!

We had Easter dinner. Ate our fill and beyond. Then clean up was left to moi, a.k.a. the Easter bunny.

So while I was cleaning up Dylan decided to go back to our computer and play with her adopted-pet stuffed-dog-thingy that she got for Christmas. You adopt your stuffed toy, give it a name, and then log on the computer to find out all about it; history birthday, favorite foods and such.

She came out of my office and confronted me about 3 minute later. She walks up into my face and firmly states, “I know who the Easter bunny is!”

Before I could get out a word she says, “its YOU isn’t it? I know it is.”

Me: “ahhhh…”

Dylan: “the receipt from the Target store is laying on top of the desk and at the top of it is everything that was in my Easter basket….”

Me: “ahhh….”

Dylan: “See? Ring pop. Peeps. Peeps. Chocolate Bunny. Sweet Tarts. Jelly Beans. Its YOU! I know its you, isn’t it?”

Me: “ahhh… Mommy and I bought you some stuff we thought we knew you would like to get you an extra basket cause you and Skylar have been so good this year.”

Dylan: “I knew it. I knew it…”

Seven years old! She is so going to be out smarting me when she becomes a teenager.

…or before. I am so in trouble!

I guess we will have to have a plan for Christmas. Pay in cash? Not very likely for this Santa Clause.

I Need Your Help….

I have something to tell you. I have been reluctant to bring it up but the time is drawing near.

I’m going behind bars.

Yes, that’s right — me….in jail.

Do you know what happens to nice, kind guys like me in the slammer?

But this is no joke.

For those of you that know me or have been following this blog for a while you know it’s not the first time.  😦


Here’s the low-down.

Every day, kids and adults are diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases that take away the most basic freedoms – the freedom to walk, talk, hug and even breathe.

Can you imagine?

Unable to walk or talk?

So on March 22nd I am doing a little time, to do a lot of good by being a Jailbird at a Muscular Association Lock-Up to help give those freedoms back.

Please, please, please consider making a  donation towards my bail and support me, and the thousands of kids and adults who will be served by MDA this year.

They set my bail at $2000!

It’s easy — just click on this secure link to my web page to make a tax-deductible donation.

That’s right, your thoughtful gift is tax-deductible.

Meaning, for you here in the US, you can get your money back.

Look out your window today and notice the kids playing. Then think of one small child on the side that is unable to play or keep up or just do normal things because of Muscular Association.

I am so grateful for the gift of no limitations with the body I was born with. I would like to do a little something for those that were not as fortunate.

How about you?

Would you consider paying it forward too?

Thank you in advance for joining me as I fight for everyday freedoms for individuals with muscular dystrophy.

Thank YOU!

If you have any questions or comments please let me know below.

For those of you that are thinking, ‘Fine. let him rot in jail.’ Well the MDA has a link where you can pay for that as well.
