Revisit Your Childhood

September 24,1991, was the day that he left our land, but don’t be
bland. Turn that frown upside down and celebrate, for
goodness sake! Of course, I am talking about Theodor
Geisel. Who?  Dr. Seuss, you silly goose.

Here are a few simple ways we can share and celebrate the
life of Dr. Seuss:

The Cat in the Hat Comes Back

Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are

Tune into the Presidential Debates at the Monroe Library!

Here is the full schedule. All debates begin at 8pm Central Time:

Second presidential debate: Tuesday, October 7 (from Belmont University, Nashville, TN)

Third presidential debate: Wednesday, October 15 (from Hofstra University, Hempstead NY)

An anecdote: I spelled ‘presidential’ as ‘presedential’ the first time I wrote it, realized it was wrong, and then proceeded to misspell it the other seven times I wrote it. Also, I tried very, very hard to come up with a clever title for this post, and couldn’t. If you have an awesome one, please leave it in the comments section, and I’ll do some renaming.
