A is for April Fool's
Isn't it appropriate that the April Challenge is letters & today is April Fool's :) Couldn't resist putting up my Letter A as well :)
Here are a bunch of quotes to enjoy ~
One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. "Oh, no," I said. "Disneyland burned down." He cried and cried, but I think that deep down, he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late. ~Jack Handey
