Foolish April

Did anyone get fooled on April 1st? Our granddaughters Hannah and Halee in Carthage, decided to fool blacken their eyes and wear their arms in slings and fool their teachers into thinking they had a terrible fight.

Noah, my granddaughter in Tulsa said their entire class decided to swap classrooms with other students, but after the joke, they were soon sent back to do their work.

The best joke was one of my son's Troy's work associates and friends who's wife got him on April Fool's day.

She told him that one of the businesses they had been looking into to do business with had called and he was to return his call. She said his name was "Mr. Lion" and she gave him the phone number. When he called it and asked for Mr Lion, the lady said, he was pretty busy. When he asked to have him return his call, she laughed.

"You do know you have the Tulsa zoo, don't you?"

We had a good laugh as Troy took us all to see "Mr Lion" and some of the other animals at the zoo.
