  1. “For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
    he suffered death and was buried.

    On the third day he rose again
    in accordance with the Scriptures;
    he ascended into heaven
    and is seated at the right hand of the Father.”

    This we believe. He is risen indeed!

    1. I’m going to play this on a loop every morning.

      “OUT, NAZIS! OUT! DO YOU UNDERSTAND ENGLISH! OUT!”

    1. Latest Sports News: Jesus 2, Tomb 0!

      In a best 2 out of 3 match, Jesus has defeated Death “The Tomb” Everlasting a second time and reigns supreme!

    1. Oh, geez.

      The worst part is before the procedure. After that, no big deal.

      I will never have a second one, however.

      1. This was my second. 12 year wait was longer than recommended due to COVID crap. No polyps, no cancer, some diverticuli at the bottom of the colon but that hasn’t cause me any problems so far. Only “fun” part was trying to spot the points where the anesthesia kicked in and shut off. Well, that and watching the nurse with his mouth dropped open when I stood on one leg to put my clothes back on. Fencing and martial arts go a long way to good balance, and trying to stay in shape with a functioning liver and kidneys helps clear the anesthetic faster.

        1. Hilarious–the standing on one leg to put your clothes back on. I do the same thing–I have to work on my balance all the time or I’ll lose it.

          Good that it was a “clean” report. 🙂

    2. Oh heavens I hate that prep. Has to be one of the most miserable things I’ve ever done. There is a part at the end in the protocol I had where you drink 8 oz of fluid (laced with laxatives) every 15 minutes for like 2 hours. All I could think of was Dumbledore in Half Blood Prince when they’re in the cave. “No No please don’t make me drink anymore” and that’s after about only 45 minutes…
      As Larry Niven said “Getting old is NOT for sissies”

      1. (screaming in head). Don’t remind me. I’m due for my 5 year check early 2022 … Problem is the prep probably causes what they find, since they can’t know for sure, I get to do this every 5 years.

        The prep is definitely the worst part. I always wake up thinking “9 … Haven’t they started yet?*” Yep. All done. (Them “Count back from 10 …”, Me: “10”, and out … ).

        1. Refuse it. I’ll never take another, and my Dad died of pancreas cancer. The medical people kept bleating at me until I convinced them that I.WILL.NOT.EVER.AGAIN.DO.THIS.

          Turns out there’s lots of other ways for the medical people to study your innards; they don’t have to do this.

          1. I might qualify for the less invasive version available now, as they have never found cancer in the polyps and hemorrhoids found; which after the first time, was probably caused by the prep procedure. I’m definitely asking. Plus I’ll probably put it off … like forever.

  2. I hope that all who celebrate have had a joyous day contemplating the anniversary of the day on which He rose to leave no doubt as to His nature.

    (Myself, I have had a rather fractured day, with the City bulk pickup starting tomorrow. Fortunately, I am agnostic, but even $SPOUSE$ had a rough day with homework needing to get done. Ah well, at least nothing burned this year! and $SPOUSE$ is finally relaxing to watch Charlie Brown with her sister.)
