It came to my attention late last night that today is no ordinary day. It is in fact the 200th birthday of classic literary novelist Charles Dickens, who happens to be one of my favorite authors of all time and of whom I happen to be an immense fan.
So to celebrate Mr. Dickens' birth, I have been immersing myself in an old version I have of his book "Cricket on the Hearth" which is from 1898.
And also making an olde English tradition of scones and tea... yum!
...Which are being properly devoured.
And so I wish from my corner of the world a Happy Birthday to one of literature's greatest minds.
I'm happy you were born Charlie!
