Happy Bloomsday All!

James Joyce

Today, June 16th, is the day that "Stately, plump Buck Mulligan came from the stairhead, bearing a bowl of lather on which a mirror and a razor lay crossed." Today is the setting for Joyce's masterpiece Ulysses, known the world over as Bloomsday. Were I a thinking man, I would have planned a Bibliophiles of Oklahoma to-do today. I think I said that last year. *Sigh*
