April Fool's?

This morning Doc ran back to the house from a short bike ride to ask Grammo when we were moving.
"We're not moving," she assured him.
"Are we selling the house?" he asked.
"How do we get to Mars?" he asked.
"Mars? You have to take a spaceship."
"When will we go?"
"Go where?"
"To Mars?"
"We're not going to Mars."
"That's what the sign says."
"What sign?" Tish asked, totally confused.
Doc took her out to the end of the driveway where a sign had been planted that said:
Moving to Mars

No one in the house has any idea where it came from. After everyone looked at it, they all assumed that I did it because it's my kind of joke. But I had nothing to do with it. Whoever put it there either knows I'd love to take a spaceship to Mars or wishes we would all go there for reasons entirely their own.

It looks like we have an April Fool's joker or someone making a not so pleasant personal statement in a very strange way. Either way, it's a mystery.

Too bad because both Doc and I are ready to blast off!
