    Maximum of 1,000 words. Post your story here; you may post up to two. Do it by April 25th. Voting will begin at that time with the winner announced around the end of the month.

    Theme: Ah April, you are a favorite of mine as it is the month of my Mom's birthday, and mine. I was going to make the theme "Birthday" . . . but not everyone's birthday is this month, so that might have been goofy. So, how about "April" as the theme.

    April Showers. There are weddings in April. There are . . . birthdays (!) in April. Lots of things happen during this month.

    APRIL!

    During the month of April, we have two signs. From the first until the 19th Aries, the ram rules. On the 20th, Taurus the bull takes over. Both signs are on the strong-willed side and like to make their presence known once in a room of people. Aries is ruled by the planet Mars, whereas Taurus is ruled by the planet Mercury. Oddly, Aries is considered the FIRST astrological sign of the zodiac and its element is Fire. Taurus is the second of the zodiac signs and its element is the Earth.

    April is my favorite month. I mean what's not to love about it. My birthday, my son's birthday, a few of my friends also have a birthday. Putting birthdays aside April has some of the best weather. The thick layers of clothes start coming off and the lighter spring clothes come out.

    Hell yeah for clothes that are easier to take off in the heat of the moment.:cool:

    April is the start of MLB regular season. Seasonal change (although not much change here in paradise we call Tampa Bay). Hockey is nearing playoffs (Go Bolts!). NASCAR is in full swing. My own Mother's birthday is the 21st (yeah, she's a true Taurus). All of the grocery stores have hundreds of bags of candy in preparation for Easter. Corn on the cob usually becomes very cheap as it has been picked usually in the first week of April. Other vegetables that come into season during April include Asparagus, Beets, Broccoli, Brussel sprouts, peas, and for your beer drinkers HOPS. TV shows finally get back to their usual program time since March Madness is over, or nearly over. April is also one of the months that TV ratings are usually measured.......other than these few items, practically NOTHING happens in April.

    Well I have an idea for this one. I have two hopes... 1. That I have time on Monday (my only day off) to write it. 2. That somehow I can keep it at or under 1,000 words.

    If not I can always write it as a longer story.

    Well, I guess there is no need to be concerned going forward about not having enough entries to make it a competition worth of voting. :)

    I swear it's true... In the town where I grew up there is a place called the "April, May, and June School of Dance"
    The joke was always that it took them MOnths to come up with the name.
