Fool (If You Think It's Over)

1) Do you have any pranks planned for April Fool's Day? I'm so glad it's not a school day!  I have no pranks planned
2) When Crazy Sam was a little girl, she once pranked her mother by putting bubble wrap under the bath mat so Mom heard a POP when she stepped on it. When you find bubble wrap, can you resist popping it? I love popping bubble wrap!

3) This week's song is about a wise man counseling a heartbroken younger person. Chris Rea, who wrote and performs this song, says it was inspired by watching his kid sister endure her first breakup. Were you in love at 17? Do you remember the object of your affections? I had a boyfriend but it was definitely not love--we both knew it
4) She's dressed in black as she mourns the end of her romance. Does your wardrobe include a lot of black? not a lot, but some
5) He offers to treat her to her first glass of good wine. Do you prefer white or red? unfortunately, my wine days are over--drugs and alcohol don't mix!
6) Chris' own teenage romance was highly successful. He met Joan Lesley while still in school and they have been married since 1968. Whose was the most recent wedding you have attended? my nephew and his wife got married last October--it was lovely!
7) Chris Rea is a passionate race car fan and once worked as a pit mechanic for a Formula One race. Do you watch auto racing? no
8) In 1978, when this song was popular, Laverne and Shirley was America's #1 TV show. It's still available via cable and streaming today. Are/were you a fan? I was a fan!

9) Random question: What are you grateful for this morning? I am grateful that it is not snowing or raining (yet)

#2 Don’t we all? I think that it is in our DNA
#5 Hmmm… If I didn’t know you better I would be wondering :)
#9 “Yet” is the key word. We down here are on the warm side of the storm but it is supposed to get pretty wild down here this evening, with a chance of a tornado.

It got windy here and rained, but nothing as bad as had been predicted. Hoping Mother Nature treats you the same!

The weather was so changeable here today I didn't think the Cubs would get the game in. They did (but considering the outcome, maybe I should have been pulling for rain).
