Happy April Fish Day my friends and fans!!! For many of you today is know as April Fools or All Fools Day but that is not the name everywhere OR what it used to be. “In Italy, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, and French-speaking areas of Switzerland and Canada, April 1 tradition is often known as “April fish” (poissons d’avril in French, aprilvisin Dutch or pesce d’aprile in Italian). This includes attempting to attach a paper fish to the victim’s back without being noticed. Such fish feature prominently on many late 19th- to early 20th-century French April Fools’ Day postcards. Many newspapers also spread a false story on April Fools’ Day, and a subtle reference to a fish is sometimes given as a clue.” (Wikipedia) Look it up for more on how the holiday has evolved to what it is today.   To me it all sounds a bit fishy….. see you on the next page and without further delay here is today’s image…. ‘CARP’e  Diem
