Easter Sunday

We had an impressive church service this morning which concluded with the singing of the Alleluia Chorus. I set the camera on the piano and took this picture before going to Carolyn and Ben's. Julie and John were there as well. We had an excellent ham lunch complete with Deviled Eggs and a special "Cream Puff type" dessert. We came home for me to have a nap and watch the Masters. It was certainly exciting with Oosthulzen getting the double eagle and then losing to Bubba Watson on the 2nd sudden-/
 death playoff hole. We went back up for our evening meal which we enjoyed along with a good visit. John had his I-phone and was able to pull-up son Jon's impersonation of Congressman Morrill making his case 100 years ago for the establishment of a Cabinet level position for Agriculture. His efforts are credited with the establishment of the USDA as well as the Land Grant College System. Jon really gets into the character of the person that he represents. It was appropriate that Jon would do the research on Congressman Morrill and USDA since Elaine worked for the Extension Service, I worked with USDA, and Jon himself has a long history in the Agency.
