I'm Late. I'm Late....
For a very important date....Boy do I feel like the White Rabbit most days! Of course with the remake of Alice In Wonderland starring Johnny Depp, I just had to make some signs.
Alice's Adventures In Wonderland was written by Lewis Carroll(a pseudonym)in 1865. It tells the story of Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a world of curiouser and curiouser things as Alice puts it.
Along the way Alice meets the Queen of Hearts who invites Alice, some say ordered, to play a game of croquet with her...needless to say things don't go well for the Queen! So off with her head! LOL!
And of course what fantasy world would be complete without a wide grinned cat saying..... "We're all mad here!" Boy this could be my house! Some days it seems like so!
Lewis Carroll went onto to write "Through The Looking Glass", the sequel to Alice using the same genre of literary nonsense as well as some well known poems.
Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) who was one of 11 children born to a Angelican church clergyman and his wife in Cheshire, England. Carroll attended Oxford where excelled as a brilliant scholar in mathematics and was an inventor. Some inventions credited to Dodgson are a postage stamp case, a writing tablet called the nyctograph, and a version of a word game that we know today as scrabble.
And I thought that he was just a writer!
