“Poisson d’avril!!”– April Fools’ Day

(Compliments of Martin, 4)

The French children’s prank of sticking a picture of a fish onto the back of a school buddy, and then crying out “Poisson d’avril!” seems so gentle compared to the “kick me!” signs of my youth!…I had completely forgotten about April Fools’ Day till these splendid fish arrived in my inbox this morning. An ancient memory of Grandpa Priester came drifting back. He had the misfortune to be born on April 1, and must have spent a lifetime trying to cut into his birthday cake, only to find it was just an iced cake pan…we, of course, found Mom’s prank hilarious!

I wonder what mischief we can get into today?!
