    April Fools!

    Thanks so much for all the replies - I hope you enjoyed my little gag... I had 14 people unfriend me on face book and a bunch of unsubscribes a handful of nasty notes - it was fun... many more appreciated it and got it - so thanks for those notes, tweets and texts... coulda done with out a few of the phone calls though.

    Anyway - incase you missed it and want to re read it - here is a link: I want to read chandler's April Fools News letter or paste:

    For the record I am in no way supporting Trump even with a long shaggy dog attached. Not even for the - "Oh, he will screw things up so bad crowd." I remember that argument in 2000.
