...I'll be sure to let Mike know if anyone leaves comments for him/us about his "book".... :-)

Also, if you want a fun song for the day, check out the April Fool Song.
I learned that song in Kindergarten and hadn't heard it since! (I could only remember the opening line and the part about the pig in the parlor and was delighted when Google "found" it for me!)
