Samuel Johnson and Me
Reading James Boswell's Life of Johnson is on my bucket list. I hope to start it this fall. Here's a photo taken at Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese Shop in London where Mr. Johnson and I hung out one afternoon. That's him in the painting. This pub was also a favorite hangout of Charles Dickens.
Wouldn't you have liked to have been a barmaid and listen in on the conversation around the table when these literary giants came in for a pint?
