Stay healthy! Be safe!

Thanks for stopping by :-)


  1. Thanks for the heads-up about the musicals being shown! I'll look forward to watching one of those. I'm sad I missed Jesus Christ Superstar as that's one I've never seen. :(

  2. I miss our library being open, too. Neat about the Andrew Lloyd Webber showings. I've been listening to musicals on disc and just finished Evita.

  3. I do everything online from the library for awhile so I still enjoy that. But I love the way there are things like the musicals online these days.

    Stay safe and have a great week! Happy reading!
