Foul! Foul! Have you no shame, Jeff? You did it to me again! Hook, line and sinker. I fell for your April Fool's prank. ( front page, last week's paper) You are indeed a clever prankster. Here I was, as a volunteer for the Cattail Festival, ready to advise the Festival committee that we can't possibly consider the Queen's Jubilee as a possible theme for the parade. Just imagine all the little tykes (and big ones) dressing up and pretending to be the Queen. A nightmare - thinking of those letters of protest from the solicitors for Buckingham Palace. My only consolation is that I am not the only one who was tricked into believing the article was true, Kudos Jeff, brilliantly played. However you are going to have to pull out the big guns for next year because we are going to be ready for you. Who am I kidding? You will probably do it to us again and it will be fun as always to have one pulled over on us by the Great One!
