There are three points I would like to make about "April Fools Day"
(That third point is a bit more complex/emotional and may require additional contemplation)
What are our grandkids . . ah . . . granddaughters listening to these days? Well, currently that would be "Roar" Katy Perry. (406,257,099 hits on youtube) Neat video and really good music!
Who wrote "The Sun Also Rises". . . Let's see. . . OK the first hand up is Jerry Leyendecker . . . no Sharon, Jerry was first . . . I know you have trouble standing up quickly . . . no Sharon "it is fair". . . SHARON! SIT DOWN! If Jerry gets it wrong you get the next chance. I'm pretty sure you will get a chance . . after all . . it's Jerry!
So, Jerry, who wrote "The Sun Also Rises" . . . what? . . . yes you may consult your legal counsels J.Daniels & J.Beam . . . Oh gee. . . I feel bad Jerry. . . so close and yet it was not "Furnacet Hammerway"! So sorry! (Private Note to Jerry) - "Jerry, you're sitting on your cat . . . again!"
Sharon, you're next. I know how excited you are to give your answer but first listen carefully to the question. Who wrote "The Sun Also Rises"?
Oh! Sharon. . . NO. . . it was not John Denver! Anyone Else?
Oh! there's a hand. It's "Phoebe" AKA Karen Reibetanz. OK Phoebe, Who wrote "The Sun Also Rises" YES! you are absolutely correct! It was Ernest Hemingway! Nice job! The next song is dedicated to you. Ok let's spin the Turntable . . . WOW! . . . lucky you! . . . you're gonna to LOVE this one!
