Good morning, FRiends.
I apologize for being so late in posting April.
Do you believe that I forgot that today starts a new month?
It's not a joke; I FORGOT!!!

In addition to entertaining the AWANA minister yesterday afternoon,
my friend since the 7th grade called with the sad news that her brother had passed away.

I changed direction on today's thread at 7:30 this morning.
Sorry for the reruns.

The first of April, some do say,
Is set apart for All Fools' Day.
But why the people call it so,
Nor I, nor they themselves do know.
But on this day are people sent
On purpose for pure merriment.
- Poor Robin's Almanac (1790)


"The first of April is the day we remember
what we are the other 364 days of the year."
- Mark Twain

Hi Lady J! That picture brings back fond memories of my spent youth! Rolling houses was a popular custom in my neighborhood.

That is beautiful, Meg! Thanks much!
I have had about 5 birthday phone calls. My brother sang Happy Birthday yesterday and again today...LOL! My SIL just left after a visit with me. She and I always exchange small gifts. Got a pretty Jacquie Lawson greeting from my niece in Mississippi! I am a day older than I was yesterday! Thats a good way to look at it, isn’t it?

Thanks again!

LOL~~~~

This will be a big surprise to you.....Hubby and I were married on my birthday so I am a little sentimental today, missing him. One reason we married on that date...his ship was getting ready for a Mediterranean cruise and he was going to be gone for 6 months and we didn’t want to wait any longer.

I have always told friends that I married him on my birthday is so he could never say he forgot our Anniversary.LOL! It sorta backfired because I always felt like I didn’t get a private birthday, because we always celebrated our Anniversary....this is all in fun! I am thankful for every day God gives me.
