  1. Oh my gosh, Susie! LOL! I’m reading this so late that I completely forgot about April Fools. I was raising and eyebrow but at the same time finding each item at least plausible. I’m really disappointed to learn that the remake of Gilligan’s Island isn’t going to happen. The casting was perfect. :-)

  9. I knew something was up! :) I’ve been a bit shaky all day, after waking half way through the night to find my computer had opened iTunes by itself, was playing a merry little 1920s tune, and all the files on the desktop had been mysteriously renamed. It’s messing with me!

  10. I might prank company management and actually report to The Grind on time tomorrow, Susie. I guarantee that it won’t happen again all year.

  11. It’s a shame that “Gilligan’s Island” won’t be cast that way. I think you’re on to something, Susie! “Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale…”

  12. I do not prank because I do not want to be pranked – ha! My grandfather was a prankster and he was a nice prankster though. BroCraves on the other hand was not – I am lucky to have survived childhood with him and my mom threatened his life if he pulled anything on my wedding day. I am all for fun, but not when it turns not so nice and someone gets hurt (bodily or emotionally). Happy April:)

  18. Love your cast of Gilligan’s Island! Not a prankster here. But when I was a kid, my brothers and I switched the salt and sugar one morning at breakfast. We were very disappointed when our father didn’t even notice the sugar on his egg or the salt in his tea… until we brought it up.

  25. Well migration is kind of for real.. The Canadian Geese arrived in many parts of Ontario last week and disappeared. In 40 years this has never happened. Did they turn around? Wildlife experts have no clue.

    This is was a good morning smile.

    For a minute there when you said Donald Trump was joining DWTS, I had a vision of his trademark hairdo flopping around his ears as he spun around on the dance floor Not a pretty sight! Not sure I’d like him any more in the emcee spot, but who knows – it could work! Great prank, Susie!

  30. Once when I was little we sneaked over in the dark and tied plastic flowers all over a bush a flowering neighbor had bought, bragged about, and pampered, but it never had any flowers – until that night. We had neighborhood pranks – but those were all pretty mild/harmless – and very funny compared to now. Tomorrow, maybe just duck and cover.

      Now that my husband and daughter proofed my story, I won’t be able to prank them tomorrow. I can always start early before they really wake up… I will have to think of something for my son. For me it’s always about telling a big fib!
      I would guess Aspen. That’s quite a wall of snow!
