Chambers Street Theatre Nov 8th, 2012

The 42nd show.  "Five Weeks in a Balloon" by Jules Verne started a worldwide hot air balloon fad.  This first major balloon event (fictional) was sailing over Africa in comfort without illness or torture on the ground.  It was fiction, but it started a fad.  Next read is "Wizard of Oz" by L. Frank Baum and of course the Wizard is taking off in his hot air balloon.

Thanks to all the folk I meet in town who recognize my voice and say how much they like my show. I like every one of you and we always have a nice chat about Mark Twain. You all are the best of people.

Here's our offering for your collection.  It's an ode to our kitty Katie ...

 

A wonderfully warm Katie Cat

would come running whenever you sat.

She'd rumble and purr,

and had wonderful fur 

to cuddle and nuzzle and pat.
