Dear Fellow Members,

   "April is the cruelest month, breeding lilacs out of the dead land, mixing memory and desire, stirring dull roots with spring rain." My good friend, Robert Hempel - from Massapequa High School's English Department - recently sent me this citation. He knows I'm a sucker for good imagery and the works of T.S. Eliot. I was a bit torn - truth be told - for I nearly led with Twain's "In the spring I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours." Ah April, so misunderstood.


    I knew a girl once, named April. She absolutely hated her name. "What's the problem," I asked. "My parents named me after a rain-soaked month...that's the best they could do?" "That's a lovely time of the year to be born," I suggested. "I agree," she replied, "but I was born on December 24th." "Look...consider yourself lucky...according to Florida birth records (trying my best to cheer her up)...there was a girl born in Pensacola on April 1, 1908 and her parents named her April Fool Harris. "Good grief," she shot back, "with a name like that...you wonder about the trajectory her life took." Well, there is a version of an English proverb that says, "Give a dog a bad name and you might as well hang him!" I guess she was hoping her name would be Noël.
