A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse! A winning Kentucky Derby horse that is. I love Derby season, a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Know what else we are celebrating this week? My friend William Shakespeare’s birthday! I bet you didn’t know Will and I were friends. We go way back, if the truth be told! You know, all of a sudden I have a fabulous idea! How about you try to count how many of the Bard’s quotes I have hidden in this little email and as luck would have it I have 2 tickets to see The Louisville Orchestra this weekend that I will give to one lucky winner! The game is afoot!
Take a moment today to send Kentucky Shakespeare a note and congratulate them on their 1 millionth child enlightened!
Now watch this week’s video blog because it is a foregone conclusion that it will leave you in stitches! And check out the events below as we announce the be all and end all of 64th anniversary giveaways!
