The Lazy Boy was so comfy that I laid my book down on my knee, took my glasses off, and was drifting off when there was a movement of the chair.  I opened one eye to see Brandy standing against my knee waiting for me to come alive.  I had not seen her get up but I knew what she needed next.  I simple rock forward, catch that moment of leverage and I would be up and on my way to the kitchen door.  But then it hit me I hadn’t tried getting out of this chair since the operation.

I reassured Brandy it would only be a minute and I would be ready.  As she sat in front of me her eyes seemed to take on a kind of panicked state.  I rocked a bit but couldn’t catch the moment that I was looking for.

I turned to one side and saw the one cactus bloom still laying on the sill.


April first and still blooming


A little further down the sill the plant Dar and Mike had brought home to me was calling for smiles but I couldn’t conjure up any!


A Primrose

At this point a little panic started to set in.  Was I going to spend all day trying to get out of a chair as my poor doggy tried to find a spot to relieve herself?  Then It dawned on me — today was April Fool’s day.  Stand up idiot. I did and the joke on myself was over!!!!!
