April Fools Day 2008

April Fool

Small April sobbed I'm going to cry

Please give me a cloud to wipe my eye

Then April Fool she laughed instead

And smiled a rainbow overhead.



April Fools' Day or All Fools' Day, though not a holiday in its own right, is a notable day celebrated in many countries on April 1


If you read ABOUT ME by Dustin you will see his favorite holiday was April Fool’s. He had the spirit of laughter every day even when days were not so good. He always had a smile for someone. His nature was to have fun and enjoy life and shared that spirit with so many. So even though this is really not a holiday I added this page for Dustin. Love you! Mother



You don't stop laughing because you grow old. You grow old because you stop laughing.  -- Michael Pritchard

Never be afraid to laugh at yourself, after all, you could be missing out on the joke of the century.-- Dame Edna Everage



"April 1st: This is the day upon which we are reminded of what we are on the other three-hundred and sixty-four." Mark Twain


When I was a kid, I said to my father one afternoon, 'Daddy, will you take me to the zoo?' He answered, 'If the zoo wants you, let them come and get you.'  Jerry Lewis


When : April 1st    

Traditionally, April Fool's Day is an opportunity for playing jokes or tricks on one another. The stranger and the more absurd the better. The challenge is to carry out a trick that is believable, if only for a little while. Tricks are most successful if played earlier in the day before a person is wise to what is going on. Younger children are also more gullible.


Any tricks or jokes must be harmless and in good taste for the unsuspecting "victim". And, we suggest you think twice before pulling one on the boss, even if he or she is know to be of good humor.


Important: Jokes and gags must be harmless  and fun. They must not be dangerous or hurt anyones feelings. Give your jokes and gags some thought before carrying them out. Ten, have fun!  

Happy April Fool's Day


If you feel as if you could use more joy, try this:


* Spend time daily doing something you enjoy.

* Do those things that bring inner peace.

* Learn to laugh heartily and frequently.

* Cultivate an attitude of hope.

* Fill each day with as much love as it can possibly hold.


You'll still have plenty of problems, but through it all, you'll find all you joy you will ever need.  

-- Steve Goodier


April 1st is no ordinary day. It is a day when you have to watch every step you make, don't make one wrong move and most of all trust no one! This day is called April Fools' Day.

The first of April, some do say,
Is set apart for All Fools' Day.
But why the people call it so,
Nor I, nor they themselves do know.
But on this day are people sent
On purpose for pure merriment.

Poor Robin's Almanac (1790)

Behold! I am with you and will keep you wherever you go - genesis 28:15

The Lord has promised to prepare
A place in heaven above—
A home where we will always be
With Him and those we love.  —Sper

Because Christ lives, death is not tragedy but triumph.
