Sunday, April 1

''We seek him here, we seek him there,
Those Frenchies seek him everywhere.
Is he in heaven?
—Is he in hell?
That demmed, elusive Pimpernel.''

For those of you who have read The Scarlet Pimpernel, you know the best part doesn't happen until Sir Percy leaves for France and Marguerite realizes that he is the Pimpernel. He had created the persona of a witless fop in order to deceive the world as to his true activities.

Happy April Fools Day folks.

Sorry for getting your hopes up. Maybe "a fundraiser" will reveal his/her identity next year.
