Or maybe this is the most sophisticated April Fools' joke anyone has ever pulled. If only that were true.
We've all resorted to COVID-19 humor to pass the time and bring some levity to the otherwise horror-movie scenario. Today I am doing my part to contribute distraction by pulling from my archives and linking up with my blogging buddies. Please visit these linky parties, and maybe in the comments below, you can tell us about the best April Fools' joke you ever performed (or were subject to).
*****LeeAnna at Not Afraid of Color hosts I Like Thursday, and don't we all need some positives right now? Head on over there and you're sure to find something inspirational. I just cried my heart out at her 3/29 post featuring the "For Good" duet by Kristin Chenoweth and Rachel Levy. It's a perfect tribute to what many of us bloggers mean to each other. This post covers many of my "likes", from Montana sights to critters to food. Enjoy!

Last May, I was helping my Dear Neighbor Friend with some of her students, and I had some spare time before one of the sessions. I recall that it was a glorious spring day; I was drawn to walk the neighborhood around the school, and I made a terrific discovery. The East Side Historic District of Kalispell is in the National Register of Historic Places! It features no less than 74 buildings, mostly homes, each one sporting its own plaque with a detailed description of the building and its history. I photographed nine homes that day, which are worthy of their own post sometime. For right now, I will show you my favorite and link up with Betty at My Corner of the World, who is making the world a smaller place one week at a time!

We are cat lovers in this house, so I never need an excuse to visit Brian's Home. Dolly, Simon, Zoe, Seal and Brian are always up to something, and it is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face. (It may be a wry knowing smile, like "yep, my cat does THAT too!") In this case, we are joining Thankful Thursday, because I am particularly happy this week to be the lucky recipient of the 2020 Little Bird Calendar from Sylvia. Thanks again, Sylvia!
Tom the Backroads Traveller has been a faithful participant in Mosaic Monday, often linking up twice. Thanks, buddy! He also hosts entertaining linky parties such as the Barn Collective, Tuesday's Treasures and Willy Nilly Friday, which I am joining this week. Just as the title implies, you can post anything! If you are in a willy-nilly mood, or WANT to be spontaneous, check it out! The ideal opportunity to show you some murals that were outside the American Sign Museum, which I wrote about here.
|I feel better the minute I look at this charming little birdie!|
|Optimistic we will have a baseball season!|
Hopefully you have found some diversion with my post today. I will leave you with a final mural. The future is out there waiting for us. Have faith. Show a little kindness to someone who needs it today. Say a prayer for the health professionals who are putting their lives on the line. Until next time!
