Mama said, "Jackson, did you know the Circus is in town?"
Jackson said, "No, GreatGrandma! What's a Circus?"
Well, Jackson, let your Nana...this GRIT...tell you a story about your GreatGrandma, the Circus and April Fools Day!
It was a school day...just like any other school day...four sleepy kids to get out of bed, feed breakfast and get on the bus. That was Mama's routine...the four of us did it every day of the week.
GET UP...GET UP!!! HURRY...HURRY!!! There are ELEPHANTS in the yard!!!
We shot out of bed and ran to the window!!!
We turned and looked at our Sweet Innocent Mama who said, in her quiet sweet voice, "APRIL FOOLS"!
She went back to stirrin gravy and makin biscuits!
Sisters and the Squirt looked at me and said,
What's an April Fools and where are the Elephants?
Mama with her Grands and GreatGrands!
That was Forty-Seven April Fools ago, Jackson!
And...Look what your GreatGrandma's Five Gullible Kids created.....
Their own FAMILY CIRCUS!
So, Mama, thanks for the Forever April Fools Memory!
PS...Jackson, did you know that there is an Elephant that can Fly?
His name is Dumbo. I will read you his story real soon!
