April Foolishness

To the naive and gullible, every day is April Fool’s day. I have played a few pranks in my day, and they were very cool ones, however, I felt so guilty afterward that I swore off of the whole thing.

I am a person that believes what people tell me. Especially, if I know them. Why wouldn’t I take them at their word? They have no reason to lie. Unless they lie to test my gullibility. They already know I am very gullible, so what’s the point?

Elk Hunting, in their Dreams

My husband is a rascal by nature, so when he tells me ridiculous things, I am suspicious now. He has told me some very tall tales in our 34 years of marraige. Like when he told me that turkeys sleep in trees, I did not believe him. My granddaughter looked it up on Google, and he was not kidding. The man has made an art of telling me things that I believe, to amuse himself. The fact that it never gets old (to him) amazes me.

I think it is a challenge for people to see just how far they can go before I am on to them. Am I right? Will someone please tell me what is so funny?


It’s No Joke

Mother Nature is playing an April Fool’s trick on us mountain folks  today. 

She has quite the blizzard going on. Everything is covered in white and the snowflakes keep coming down.

Not that you can see the delicate ones on video. The big fat flakes hide when they see me with a camera. Even the delicate ones stop after I record them. If I go about my sewing or writing as usual – they come back. They know I love watching them fall and they tease me mercilessly….

So much for doing the Tuesday grocery shopping. And the weather-guessers are saying this will go on until Thursday. Even though I didn’t have plans to go anywhere else, and I’m a homebody at heart, I feel eerily trapped.

Glad I have plenty of soup and edible stuff  in the pantry! And, if the power stays on, all is well  😉

A happy April to us all!

P.S. They are falling again.
