January 27th is Charles Lutwidge Dodgson
's 173rd birthday. Click the Tea Party above to celebrate.
Alice will be 140 this July if you date from publication, 143 if you date from her beginnings
To celebrate, I'm believing three impossible things before breakfast.
Birthday wishes to the birthday boy.
We're supposed to party the other 364 days of the year.
Quite right, DrewDad: we should have been celebrating Dodgson's unbirthdays every other day of the year. Oh well, jam tomorrow, jam yesterday, but never jam today.
I tried to organize a game of croquet but the dang hedgehogs kept wandering off.
Caucus race, anyone?
Not to take anything away from ol' Lewis Carrol, but do you all realize that today is also the natal day of Wolfgang Gottlieb Amadeus Theophilus Mozart? (I only know this because my favorite NPR station has been playing almost nothing but Mozart all morning.)
Go ask Alice.
I think she'll know.
