Caution Advised

Beware of pranksters!


Remember -- today is April Fool's Day. Would-be tricksters are everywhere, so stay alert.

You may enjoy my Tree Notes post for today: "Jonathan Baldwin Turner and Osage orange hedges". No tricks are hidden there. It's just an interesting bit of history about the American prairies.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
