  • Don’t you think Miley needs a handknit scarf from her visit to Nashville? Maybe she can help us make knitting “cool” among pre-teens!

  • Hmmm.
    For me, the McCullough-a-Capella story is a LOT harder to believe than Kay having tea with HRH.
    Is April 1 lasting a bit longer than usual this year??

  • Now I am going to have to read the John Adams book!! Thanks – p.s. bought Raising Sand after reading about it on your blog – LOVE IT! Fortune teller is my kids fave…

  • Boy, that’s a scary picture. I figured it probably wasn’t really tangled goat hair in the snow, but I had a moment of doubt, lemme tell you.

  • Hahahaha! 😛 Loved the April Fools Prank!

  • we had McCollough at a client event Once so I met him and his wife. Both lovely. I dream about doing their annual Brooklyn Bridge walk with them one day.

  • When I saw McCullough, he sang a bawdy tavern song…can’t remember it now, but it was a very fun,and surprising way to end his lecture.

  • On the goat link — EW! That is not the part of a goat that is interesting!

  • All fun and funny. And I needed the laughs today. Thanks.

  • Yam-it-all. We had tickets to see McCullough and I totally forgot. Love, love, love his books, too.

  • Mohair and cashmere come from goats. We don’t eat our dear 4-legged yarn producing friends! (Includes sheep.)

  • WOW! You pranked us all. I think Kay is going to find some sweet revenge to play on you. I just hope it is also very public here on the blog so we can all laugh along. I’ll have to check out these books having been a history major and all.

  • April Fools joke? Then the joke was on all of us who commented in “good faith”. Wow. That’s too bad.
    The equally great Clara Parkes also played an April Fools prank on her readers this week, which had a hollow ring to it for me, as well. I don’t know why. I guess it’s because I’m thinking that not all April Fools pranks are actually that funny.

  • You scared me — I thought that beautiful Belinda scarf had been left outside in the snow. Phew!

  • Back when we first got satellite TV, I watched the entire Civil War series in one sitting and crocheted a one granny square afghan whilst doing so. The blanket remains, as does a teeny tiny obsession with that amazing voice.

  • and here i thought you had left the scarf in the snow, frozen over like poor discarded charlotte. and here i thought you had left the scarf in the snow, frozen over like poor discarded charlotte. <--(bonus little house reference)
