Have you ever heard of, or seen a foldable guitar? I didn’t think that anyone made such an instrument, but today I discovered that there is a company (that has been on the TV Show “Shark Tank” a few times) that makes a guitar that folds in half and fits into a backpack! I found a YouTube video that shows how it folds, and the backpack that it goes into. The man doing the video is careful to explain that after you unfold the guitar that you will need to spend some time tuning it, but he was quite impressed with the guitar! I think that is pretty clever, don’t you?
I hope that you are on good terms with your Mother, and that she is still “with us” in this life. If you are, and she is, I hope you get the chance to tell her how much she means to you. There may come a time when she is not around anymore to talk with, or to hug. Treasure these moments you have with her – even if it means just sitting quietly beside her while she talks!

When I purchased my digital camera a few years ago, it did not come with any kind of case, or bag. I have been keeping it in a wooden storage case in my living room, but when I am getting ready to go out somewhere and want to bring the camera with me, I am always scrambling for something to carry it in. A lot of times I just have thrown it in my purse, but then it is difficult to find – it seems to find a way to shift around and settle to the bottom, and get covered up with things. Recently a container of hand sanitizer that I kept in my purse sprung a leak and it got everything in my purse very slimy and wet.
If I had my camera in my purse when that happened, I think I would have totally freaked out! When my son Jason asked me if he could borrow my camera for a week when he was planning to go visit a friend in California, he asked me if there was a case or bag to keep it in. I was embarrassed to admit that I had nothing. He encouraged me to check out these bags for cameras at AvidMax Outfitters and see if there was something there that I might want to order for my camera. They have a really good selection of camera bags, but I haven’t made up my mind which one. I think I should ask Jason what kind of bag he would prefer, since he is the one that will be taking the camera for the week!
When I was young, I did not like the taste of most chocolate candies. I’m pretty sure that is because my parents kept giving me the chocolates that they didn’t like – the bitter stuff. When I would get chocolate candy, say for Halloween, Christmas, or Easter, I would not eat it – remembering it to be bitter. I did not realize that some chocolates were sweet! So I missed out on the joy of eating the chocolate candies! I can remember, as a child, getting chocolate Easter Bunnies, and not even tasting them. I was an animal lover, and appreciated how cute the chocolates were! I did not want to ruin the beautiful cuteness of the bunny, and was mortified when other people would bite off the ears! I felt bad for the poor, mutilated, bunny!
Well, April Fools Day has arrived, the day when everyone is supposed to be so happy and giddy that spring is here that they play silly pranks on each other! I’m happy to report that so far no one has sprung any pranks on me and I hope it stays that way! I think I’m safe, I’m home for the evening and I’m not expecting any guests or phone calls! I’m sorry to say that most of the April Fool jokes that have been played on me tend to be cruel, so I’d just as soon not be the butt of someone else’s mean and rude jokes.
