April 1st
Aside
I was horrified when my husband said, as I was making breakfast tea (Earl grey for me, workman’s stand –the- spoon- up -in -it for the men),

“There’s a dead mouse in the back porch!”

When I rushed to look he chortled. I’d been April Fooled and he did it with the visiting son also. Drat! I’m slipping! Time was when I used to get everybody but it has to be before twelve noon.

Did you get anybody? Or were you like me a hapless victim?

That old chestnut! LOL!

To tell you the truth I totally forgot it was April Fools Day!

Here from Michele's but no trickery as it's after noon now!

Nobody got me today. Mind you, I've been home-alone today, so there's been nobody but the cats to fool me!

Here from Michele's :D

I had a beautiful black eye this morning when I left the bathroom, thanks to some blue, green and black face paint. The children were full of symapathy, April Fools them, and my partner didn't even notice, April Fool me?

nikki-ann: i an so sorry I couldn't leave a comment on your fascinating post. Three were eaten. This seeems to be happening more and more. It happened on Panther girl's also.

PI said...

Well done Nea! I'm disappointed that I didn't think of one but I was laid low on Saturday and not thinking too well. Bravo and partner to the bottom of the class!

Karen said...

Michele sent me over to tee, hee!

Nope, no one got me 'cause I remembered it; in fact, posted it on my blog today! :+)

Kristi Mantoni said...

No tricks on me today! Unless you count that my husband left early today and I have to continue to pack up the house for the move...alone!

Thumper said...

:) No one has gotten me yet, but then everyone else in this house is still asleep, either because they worked all night or partied all night...

Hey Pat... what trouble did you have with my comments? Other people have been able to post comments, so I'm not sure what's going on...

email me mvpublic@mac.com if you can tell me what happens.

I didn't get anybody today, but somebody did get me. I was at wpdesigner.com and he said he was shutting down the site. I was up late last night, and I didn't realize it was April Fool's Day yet.

I was really heartbroken too. It has recently become one of favorite websites. So, I was a hapless victim.

Here from Michele's!

PI said...

Clever girl Karen!

Mmm Kristin - maybe he's the clever one:)

thumper: what are you waiting for? Get them!

Awww Justin. Hope your sadness was relieved quite quickly.

No, no-one got me today but I was reading the Independant and thought that the 'rights for robots' article was their attempt to have us over!
BTW just been catching up and enjoyed seeing your modelling photos. You would have turned heads wherever you went, must have been awkward sometimes, in that people do stare don't they?

We were preparing to leave DC for home and didn't have our minds on the date, but mr. kenju fooled me and my girls with some foolishness.

sablonneuse said...

No-one did 'Poisson d'avril' on me and I couldn't think of anything clever to catch anyone else. The nurse who comes daily said she was going to tell her boyfriend she was pregnant as a joke.
Did you see on the BBC website they showed the 'spaghetti tree' report from 50 years ago? So many people believed it. It had to be the best April Fool of the century.

PI said...

sablonneuse: I saw Richard Dimbleby do the original. It was a superb jape. He was much more fon than his sons. Was it really fifty years ago?

PI said...

sorry bob-kat I missed you. Old chestnut indeed! It's traditional!

PI said...

the blonde : the worst part was when you knew you were looking a mess - after a gruelling day under hot lights. I used to try to hide behind sunglasses - it isn't affectatiion - you really do imagine no-one will notice you.

All of Guyana was got, Pat. The Sri Lanka cricket team made fools of the Windies, whipped us so badly, ay yai yai.
