Laughing about

how my grandmother Buffy, who passed away recently, and was the biggest prankster of all time - somehow managed to make her way into my thoughts today a few dozen times. Didn't even think about it until I got a group email from the family, talking about something they had found of her's and sharing it with all of us - when I realize, it was April Fools day, one of her favorite holidays (yes, she would make this a national bank holiday if she possibly could), and she was dropping in, to each of our minds, just to say hi to all of us.

I'm laughing just thinking about it. She certainly was a woman of many sides, some good some bad, like all of us - but her humor was pretty out of this world. Anyone who knows her can tell you a pretty detailed account of one of her pranks. The winner being when she dressed up as a bag lady for her country club costume party, and was so in character (stealing bread from the buffet and putting them in her dirty pockets) that they kicked her our and called the cops. She didn't break character until the police arrived, and even then went back into character right after clearing up the whole mess.

Anyways, thinking of her, and laughing quite a bit. Thanks Buff.
