A Fool for You by Miz Pink

pink-feather-maskI thought about posting that I was taking over the blog and devoting it to a combination of posts on bible study and crochet projects…or that Deacon Blue doesn’t exist and I created him to be my public face (a la “Remington Steele”)…or that I am expecting octuplets…

And then I realized that too many people pull this stuff on April 1st and either confuse the dickens outta folks or look silly because everyone says, “C’mon, we KNOW it’s April Fool’s Day!”

So, in honor of April Fool’s Day, some bible passages about fools:

Proverbs 17:28 – Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.

Matthew 7:26 – Everyone who hears these words of mine, and doesn’t do them will be like a foolish man, who built his house on the sand.

First Corinthians 3:18 – Let no one deceive himself. If anyone thinks that he is wise among you in this world, let him become a fool, that he may become wise.

Proverbs 12:15 – The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but he who is wise listens to counsel.

Proverbs 12:16 A fool shows his annoyance the same day, but one who overlooks an insult is prudent.

    I want you to know that I’m very happy to discover that I’m not a figment of your imagination. Though I wouldn’t mind looking like Pierce Brosnan from Remington Steele.

    oh Miz Pink, PLEASE add crocheting tips!

    Knitting tips would be good, too…

    I know it’s a day late, but here’s another good “fool” quote, from Mark Twain: “It’s better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.”

    Don’t hold your breath. I’ve SEEN her attempts to crochet.


    You REALLY shouldn’t hold your breath. I don’t even think she tried to pick up that craft.

    And thanks for the Twain quote…I love me some Samuel Clemens quotes. Man was a genius.

    How you gonna bust me out like that Deke?

    So my kid’s blanket turned out to be a trapazoid instead of a rectangle…

    All I know is its a good think you ain’t my hubby or you’d be sleeping on the couch for a few nights.

    However, you bake up a mean set of Russian Tea Cakes or Toffee Nut Bars, and your fudge kicks major ass. And your flowers look nice.

    Just don’t crochet me a hat or anything.

    Hey, now I’ve got recipes to trade, too…maybe I should do a monthly post with a recipe and then invite additional contributions in the comments.

    Hell, I’m already doing just about everything but the kitchen sink in this blog these days…

Deacon Blue is the blogging persona of editor and writer Jeffrey Bouley. The opinions of Jeff himself on this blog, and those expressed as Deacon Blue, in NO WAY should be construed as the opinions of anyone with whom he has worked, currently works, or will work with in the future. They are personal opinions and views, and are sometimes, frankly, expressed in more outrageous terms than I truly feel most days.
