April Fool!

I would like to share my April Fool joke with you! Ever since the first time I went to the yard of my friend Chuck Cambis, I have wanted to change the sign on his gate from 'Men at Play' to 'Women at Play!' That is exactly what I did on April 1st.

I knew Chuck would be at his yard that morning, as another friend was meeting him there first thing in the morning. I had my husband go with me over 30 miles to remodel his sign with black electrical tape before they arrived.

Chuck never even noticed the improvement! I am having a friend mail him a photo of my dirty deed from Colorado. That photo will be of the sign only, so he still won't know who did it. If he sees this photo with me in it, he may figure it out. (I really don't need to shave, that is. my disguise). I am sure Chuck will recognize the hat, I always wear it.
