Wish all you have said could be a great “APRIL FOOL’S JOKE”, but I would be living in a fantasy world.

Anyway, its good to see you this morning fewz! I am getting ready for breakfast....worked up an appetite already. Lets see now..”should I buy gas or buy groceries this week?”

Have a wonderful birthday, Jaycee. Gotta run.

Yorkie, thats the prettiest birthday cake I've ever seen. Its a wonderful greeting....thank you!! ((((Hugs))))

I just received the most beautiful flowers and the card said,

"Aunt Jane
I love you,
This is not a prank!"

And no name! I was thinking it was from a nephew and I called the florist and it was from my niece in Mississippi, who is a living doll. Nothing makes you feel as good as flowers...right?

I’m enjoying my birthday very much today. Beautiful flowers just arrived from my niece in Mississippi. My sons and families and me are going to a wonderful pizza place tonight. I have a lot to be thankful for today.

April Fool!





This is NOT an April Fool Joke. I just came back from the local animal shelter, and I have a new little friend. Her name is "Lynn" and she is a young female of indeterminate breed. She looks like she is part lab. (The above picture is not of Lynn, but looks just like her!) The shelter has to come to my house and make sure I have a fit home before they will let me have her.

I think, Ms Jane, that maybe I had better explain the term
“un-raptured retread” since some may misunderstand to whom it refers.
According to Possum’s theory on The Rapture, everyone on the Earth today is an un-raptured retread.

A few years back, there was a movie called: “Defending Your Life”. In that movie, Meryl Streep’s character is going to get to stay in Paradise while Albert Brook’s character has to be born again. Possum decided that was really the way The Rapture occurred rather than folks disappearing in a pile of clothes with the subsequent crashing of cars and planes. He believes that when we finally fulfill the requirements for Paradise, we stay, otherwise we must be born again. I’m not sure if he is right but it works for making a point.

Pictures, ML - pictures! We want to see her.
Is she really 'little' or is she full grown?
Any background on her?

Yorkie, how can this be?

Please say it isn't permanent. Is there anything we can do to help?

You have been a blessing to this thread everyday. You will leave a huge, mammoth hole where you have graced us .

God bless you and keep you, the LORD make his face to shine upon you, may God lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. Amen.

Tears!

Oh, no, Geo! You gotta ‘click’! (When you DO click, you will see two little glittering yorkies, with the words, “Happy April Fools Day”).

I’m not going anywhere - I do that every year for “April Fools” Day. I am so sorry you didn’t ‘get’ it. Thank you for your kind words - they mean a lot to me! ((((HUGS))))

There's a new virus that will re-write your hard drive. Not only that, but it will scramble any disks that are even close to your computer. It will recalibrate your refrigerator's coolness setting so all your ice cream melts. It will demagnetize the strips on all your credit cards.

It will give your ex-girl or boyfriend your new phone number. It will mix Kool-aid into your fishtank. It will drink all your wine and leave its socks out on the coffee table when there's company coming over.

Fool's Virus will make you fall in love with a penguin. It will give you nightmares about circus midgets. It will pour sugar in your gas tank and shave off both your eyebrows while you're sleeping.

It will seduce your grandmother. It does not matter if she is dead; such is the power of Fool's Virus.

It moves your car randomly around parking lots so you can't find it. It will kick your dog. It will leave nasty messages on your boss's voice mail in your voice!

Fool's Virus will give you Dutch Elm disease. It will leave the toilet seat up. It will leave bacon cooking on the stove while it goes out to chase grade-schoolers with your new snow blower.

Fool's Virus will prompt your mother to call on Friday and Saturday nights for two months. It will place your wallet and keys on an obscure shelf in the basement. It will emulate your face and stare into the neighbor's bathroom window.

Fool's Virus will make your bloomers shrink two sizes and make you gain fifteen pounds over night.
PLEASE listen to me! The "Fool's Virus" DOES NOT exist!

This is a joke in honor of April's Fool Day.

But just to be safe, better run that virus scanner now!
