Ice floated in the lake, but the April Fools boats were ready. April Fool’s Day marked a spring ritual, two boat launches followed by a dinner at Dockers. As Bill, John and I walked the pier, I realized I had forgotten my jacket. Sitting on the water chilled me to the bone, and it had worsened these last forty years. John always insisted on sitting outside while Carol and I voted for an inside table. This year I wouldn’t object. Today there were tears in John’s eyes as we talked of other boat launches and how much we missed Carol.
