Sometimes you are just dumbfounded.  Like when you read this amazing AL.com article about what just happened at Parkside school in the east end of Cullman County.

It began when some teachers at the school birthed the notion to redo their rooms as Hogwarts-themed classrooms.  (It will come as no surprise to most readers that I am totally clueless about the world of Harry Potter and all that goes with it.  Never read any of the books and don’t know a Hogwart from a Warthog.  But that doesn’t mean today’s school kids are as sheltered as I am.)  (But I do remember Ozark Ike and the Mickey Mouse club.)

Anyhow, back to the real story.  Seems that the news made it all the way to Hollywood and lo and behold, cast members of the new Fantastic Beasts movie: The Crimes of Grindelwald  showed up at the school Nov. 1.  Cast members including Zoe Kravits, Jude Law, Ezra Miller, Eddie Redmayne and Callum Turner were not only there, but they had a check for $25,000 with them.
