>April 2011

>It’s the first day of April.  Tradition has it that one should play pranks or practical jokes on others on this day.  I wonder how that began, and why they picked the first day of April to do it. 

Maybe all that waiting around for winter weather to clear up…..just had to put all that pent-up energy somewhere….why not put a whoopie cushion under the boss’ butt during the conference?  Sounds perfectly logical to me!

Of course, April is a lot more than tom-foolery…’tis the month which houses things like Easter (lots of the time, but not always), the day Lincoln was shot (and died), the day the Titanic hit the ice berg (and sank), and of course April 15th….tax day.

Suffice to say, it’s a jam-packed month!

And, oh yes….my 56th birthday lives in this month too.  Gee.  How time flies when you’re living it!

I’m hoping Jack will feel well enough to go out today; I want to get us some fresh air now that the sun is shining.  It’s been raining and nasty for weeks, but finally there’s a break in the weather.

It might just help Jack feel a little better to get some sunshine and a change of scene. He’s just so tired these days….wish we could help him somehow.  We’re stopping by the clinic while we’re out….getting some blood work done.  I hope they can find out something to help Jack.  Maybe he just needs an adjustment in his medications.  I hope that’s all that’s to it.

Right now it’s fairly early in the morning; I’m listening for the trash collection truck to come beep-beeping up the hill.  That can happen anywhere between 5:30 AM and 7:30 AM.  Some times there’s more than one visitation.  The condos up the street require special  attention several days a week.  They must generate a lot of garbage.

I wonder where it all finally goes.  Landfills, I guess.  Although there are a couple of “garbage islands” floating around our oceans.  That’s got to be an incredible sight.  Islands made of garbage.  Who knew we’d make enough rubbish to form our own land masses.

Anyway, I’m just babbling at this point. So I’ll leave it at that.

For today, Fifty Five Is The New April 2011….because that’s what it is.
