April Fool's Day!

I got this in an E-mail today. I thought it was so cute, so I'm posting it here. It's still raining.. Don't know when it will let up..

Have a happy evening!


After Christmas, a teacher asked her young pupils how they spent their holiday away from school.One child wrote the following:We always used to spend the holidays with Grandma and Grandpa. They used to live in a big brick house but Grandpa got retarded and they moved to Florida. Now they live in a tin box and have rocks painted green to look like grass. They ride around on their bicycles and wear name tags because they don't know who they are anymore.They go to a building called a wreck center, but they must have got it fixed because it is all okay now, they do exercises there, but they don't do them very well.

There is a swimming pool too, but they all jump up and down in it with hats on.At their gate, there is a doll house with a little old man sitting in it. He watches all day so nobody can escape. Sometimes they sneak out, and go cruising in their gol f carts. Nobody there cooks, they just eat out. And, they eat the same thing every night --- early birds. Some of the people can't get out past the man in the doll house. The ones who do get out, bring food back to the wrecked center for pot luck.My Grandma says that Grandpa worked all his life to earn his retardment and says I should work hard so I can be retarded someday too.When I earn my retardment, I want to be the man in the doll house. Then I will let people out, so they can visit their grandchildren......

LOL Stephanie. That is so cute. Thanks for sharing.

I do hope your rain lets up. It has been raining here as well and with the snow melt, creeks, rivers and streams are over their banks.

Good Morning Stephanie,
Oh my gosh, that was just so funny. Only out of the mouth of babes. LOL. "THANK YOU" for sharing it with us. It didn't rain any here yesterday, but it's suppose to start raining again tonight and tomorrow with the possibility of some Severe Storms tomorrow as well. They say it should all clear out by noon on Friday. I guess we will have to wait and see. I know they are talking about some more flooding tonight and tomorrow. We sure don't need anymore flooding around the already flooded areas. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.
