Happy April Fools Day !!!

A Tricksters Day, a Jokers Delight...........
I want to tell you about a trick I played on my mother when she was pregnant with me ,
I decided to be born a month early and I have paid dearly for that ever since !!!!!!

April Fools Day is my birthday !!!
(( Hand over mouth telling my age))
Take a guess !!!!!

The reason I am showing you these pictures of my Grandmere is that she and I share the name Obeline, its my middle name,I love that sweet name I love the sound of it, many of my friends call me Obe.I was named for her and today is my birthday April Fools Day,you cannot imagine the jokes that were played on me because of this day.The story of my birth is a favourite story that my Dad loved to tell over and over to anyone who would listen.
This is my Grandmere when she was a young woman,living in rural Quebec.

This is a photo of my Grandmere and my Mother and myself,at the train station,my Grandmere was going back home after a visit.
On her farm Grandmere had apple orchards MacKintosh apples.

This is my GrandMere Obeline and myself age 3-4

Did I trick you did I ,did I, did I ??????????

It really is my birthday ....... trick is on me!!!!

Happy Birthday my dear blogging friend! I wondered about "Obe" since I'd seen it in your sidebar, but never could connect how it related to you, since I knew you only as "Diane"; thought maybe it was part of your last name or a knickname, never thought it was your middle name.
Hope you have a wonderful day filled with love and happiness.
Oh, about the age, I'm guessing 54!
