on a donkey, no kidding

Now, I know today is April 1 and that in the USA (at least) its a day to say “your hair is on fire” and then say “April Fool”! (oh no, what have I started?)

BUT, today is, much more importantly, Palm Sunday. We celebrate and remember the day when Jesus rode in on a donkey…

No kidding.
