April 1st

Peace d'Aprile asino civile. Better check yourself, there might be a paper fish hanging off of you somewhere on your back. Yuh, that would not be unusual at my house on April Fool. Momma has some strange practices which she contends normal in many parts of the world. As in Italy, in France, Poisson d'Avril, or "April Fish"is celebrated by French children by taping a picture of a fish on the back of their schoolmates, crying "Poisson d'Avril" when the prank is discovered. I know. Lame. I tried to tell her that. And I informed her a zillion time that we are in the USA and paper fish are ... lame. And i have pointed out endlessly that it is children that do that not alleged adults...But the woman ignores me, and at times like this we have learned to just humor her. You know...go along to get along.

And...we also do our absolute best to teach momma some new "tricks". April Fool's day American style! We have a grand day planned for the woman. She loved putting her cold tootsies into slippers filled with chewy bits... April's Fool!

We have carefully pushed her waste basket under her desk about two inches to the left. Just enough to insure a miss or two... Hahahahahaha... April's Fool!

She is going to love making the bed today. Her love of smooooooth neat bed will meet some resistance. We buried about a zillion toys in the various layers of sheets and blankets and comforter, etc etc... And the fun goes on! April's Fool!

And that's just before breakfast! It's going to be a busy busy busy day!

Happy April Fool's Day!
No paper fish here yet ... maybe we ought to start that tradition.
It's been a pretty mundane day.
Have a great weekend and don't fall for an Tom Foolery!
