Did you know?


 Did you know this book is the basis for the Broadway musical CATS?

 I am teaching T.S. Eliot to middle schoolers and high schoolers right now. 

The names and words tickle the tongue in the poems and are the lyrics for the musical!
 I am  so tickled by this knowledge!




If you ever find this cover, you have found a treasure:



Jellicle  Cats

Lent


It is wonderful to be in Lent, isn't it. 

Heading to this  on Saturday with the ladies from this.

These delectable ladies are staying at my house tomorrow night. 
( yea...)
