Fooling Around on April 1st

Yay!  First turtle of the year???  Well, I've seen a few on the water, but this was the first on the ground.  When I went to flip it over to see if it was male or female...I found it was dead.  Ewww!  Good thing I suppose, it is a snappers shell.  
 Yay!  An Owl!!!!  And certainly NOT a Barred Owl!!!  Woo-Who!!! 
 Bummer!  It was just a bump on the side of the tree.  :(  
Were you fooled at all today?
I got my husband first thing as I woke up.  At 6:15 a.m. I rolled over in bed looked out the window and LOUDLY said, "OH GREAT!"  It woke his groggy butt up as he inquired, "What?"  "It snowed!"  "WHAT?"  "It snowed last night."  "Are you kidding?  Snow!?  Ugg."  "April Fools!"

I was told that wasn't a very nice way to wake up a sleeping person.  :)
Then at 11:15 p.m. I sent my daughter a text message...she was in the basement just below my room, working on a school project with a girl friend, "I just received an e-mail asking you to be at ballet at 9 a.m.!"  I could hear her panicking footsteps running my way.  "WHAT? Are you serious???"  "April Fools!"  She promptly grabbed a pillow off my bed and started hitting me with it.  I guess I deserved that, but I was laughing too hard to even care.  Nine a.m. for ballerinas is WAY too early!  I don't think they can really function until after noon!

Hope you enjoyed the fun of April 1st too!  :)
