Happy Birthday Shakespeare!

Today is the anniversary of a very special writer’s birthday…Happy Birthday Shakespeare!

If he were still alive today, Shakespeare would be celebrating his 449 birthday! Wow! (I’m not even two yet!) In Stratford-upon-Avon there have been processions and celebrations to mark the birth of the world’s greatest playwright.

I’m very interested in writing. I’ve recently turned my paw to writing a story for children about how pawesome the ocean is. If only one day my quotes become as well know as some of Shakespeare’s:

Romeo and Juliet- “O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?”. – (Act II, Scene II).

Hamlet- “To be, or not to be: that is the question”. – (Act III, Scene I).

King Henry IV, Part II- “He hath eaten me out of house and home”. – (Act II, Scene I).

Twelfth Night- “Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them”. – (Act II, Scene V).

King Richard III- “So wise so young, they say, do never live long”. – (Act III, Scene I).

Let’s hope this one from The Merry Wives of Windsor rings true for me…


I’d also like to wish all my English furiends a very Happy St. George’s day!

Bisous Bailey


  1. Oh Bailey you’d be purrrrfect as the author of a kids book about the ocean – and life on a boat, etc. As for oysters – my Mom says “YUM” – one of her favorite things to eat!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy


  2. Aww good luck with your story. I’m sure it will be wonderful


  3. Bailey you’re off to a fabulous writing start!


  4. Hmmm … those seem to be the only lines we know. 🙂


  5. I do believe the world IS your oyster, Bailey!


  6. Good luck with the book Bailey. I think it’s a great idea!


  7. Happy Birthday to Shakespeare! And here’s hoping, Bailey, that you get some mighty fine oysters!!


  8. We didn’t know this was the Bard’s birthday. With the crazy, fast-paced society we live in with bogs and smart phones and Twitter, it is sort of hard to believe that anything from our time will be so long-lasting, but it’s always great to have aspirations. Good luck! Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette


  9. I am sure you will write some pawsome seafaring yarns and may be some pawsome new sea shanties. Do you like oysters, Bailey?


  10. Good luck with your story Bailey, hope you let us read it when its finished:-)


  11. Well Baily between you, me, and the deep blue, keep the words flowin mate!


  12. OMC I missed Shakespears’ Birthday.. but I’m still in time to celebrate your oyster… Phew 🙂
