A Dickensian Banner — Did you know that I was in "Oliver" twice in my life? First as Oliver in my 5th grade production and then as Fagan in 7th grade. It wasn't until after college, though, that I read my first Dickens novel ("Bleak House," for the record) and became an instant fan. This month I said to Lindy, "What if we do a banner in the style of a Dickens illustration?" And being the talented person that she is, she came up with the banner you see above. I consider myself lucky to have her.
