You can't please all the people all the time. *sigh*
I just noticed in my email the following note:

Re: Crime Scene and Campground Thieves by Dear Miss Mermaid
Inappropriate !!!!I will unscribing soon.
In view of the angry red large letters, I sent back a gentle reply:
It was an April Fool's funnery.
I got the idea because my neighbor reported 5 bicycles were stolen at Wickham Park where I was camping in Florida, then the next place I visited I was greeted with crime scene tape (3 murders) then when I arrived at Hunting Island, I met a woman cleaning up broken glass because she had a huge rock thrown through her driver's window, her wallet stolen, while she parked and hiked with her daughter at the marsh walk. This island is normally peaceful and tranquil. My nerves were shot. I wanted to see the humor in all this recent madness.
So I tried to make a funny post for April fool's day on a lighter note. I think all April foolery could be classified as inappropriate.
Perhaps I should have settled for claiming mermaids aren't real on April Fool's day, but most everyone knows mermaids exist, so it might have fallen flat too.
