Dear Friends,

During a concert at my daughter's public school last night, I experienced an epiphany. Many of the songs were pulled from the canon of the Judeo-Christian religion, and it got me to thinking about the frivolity of this web log. There is no place for such fatuous banter in this perilous world in which we live.

I will soon be re-naming this web log. I am thinking of calling it "Thoughtful Moments."

Each entry will begin with an uplifting famous quotation from an appropriate source, followed by a homily.

The "Six Word Blog" will remain, but it too will be dedicated to serious endeavors.

Donations have never been solicited here before, but now I ask you to contribute some funds so that I can reach more readers. I want to do the right and great things that will ease the suffering here on Earth and guide good people to the Great Hereafter.

Thank you for your time,
Anne Johnson

I am so glad to hear that you will be reaching out to your readers in an attempt to uplift and inspire us. No doubt it will be a thankless task, but we can only admire your goodness and mercy. On such an important and solemn day of the year, what else could we expect?

Anne:

To that end, I will be sending you a check for a rather substantial sum of money. Unfortunately, Mammon, the god of Wall Street has held us in disfavor of late, so it will bounce like a superball if you try to cash it; but, as they say, "it's the thought that counts".

May the golden apples of pentagonal Faith lead us to peace and harmony.
You have chosen...wisely.

I can't believe it took me all of 35 seconds to realize this was April first.

Why Anne, this is an absolutely fantastic idea that you've got. I think I'll quit college and donate the money I would pay on tuition to help you reach more people, rather than completing my degree in music therapy.

... :P

By the way, the word verification I've got is obustru. Sort of sounds like "obtuse"...sort of fits for those of us who it took a few seconds to realize it's April Fools day, and were wondering what the HECK was going on at first,...Gosh, and Loki was getting after me for not playing any pranks. He's probably doubly disgusted with me now.

THE Michael: I didn't get to read this until the 4th, but she had me going nonetheless, until I saw the great amount of responses and THEN I looked at the date. *giggle* Good one, Anne!
