Yup, Sue, that's the first thing I thought of. At least I hope it's an April Fool's day prank and not a sign that Karla is ill.

Karla, if you're healthy and laughing at all the addicts twitching for our daily fix, good on ya for coming up with a great prank! And if you're feeling under the weather today, I send you wishes for a speedy return to health.

ETA - aww, poor thing - feel better fast! And thanks for posting the questions in time that I can reply before heading to work!

Today's Question(s):
You know the saying "April's Showers bring May Flowers"

So will any of our QOTD family be starting the day with April Showers?


Not in our neck of the woods - sunny and high 70s today!!

p.s. How come March and April are the only Months that have a saying?

Doggoned if I know - they've got better publicists than the rest of the months????

Bonus Question:
I know no one likes being sick but

If I have to get something I would rather it affect my
respiratory system instead of my guts.
I can deal with blowing my nose, but running to the bathroom every few minutes gets old in a hurry.

Extra Credit Question:

When was the last time you "put your foot down"?


Oh, about 30 minutes ago when my cat was begging for another treat. He gets a couple of morsels of dehydrated salmon every morning after I finish breakfast, and he'd really, really, REALLY like the whole bag.

Inquiring Minds Question :

Are they calling for a yuckier than normal allergy season in your neck of the woods?


You know, I don't know that I've heard a forecast for how bad the allergens are going to be this spring, but I can sure attest to the fact that I have been sneezing up a storm for the past couple of weeks.

Just for Fun:

Last time you had Meatloaf?


Oh, it's been a month or so. Time for another one, I think!

What is your favorite type of sliced bread?

Hmmm, do you mean the store-bought pre-sliced kind? If so, our preferred kind is Brownberry Natural Wheat.

If you're talking about my all-time favorite bread ever, however, then the answer is the wonderful stuff my spouse bakes.
