We're going to Pennsylvania to visit friends and for David to get in some fly-fishing. Then we will be ending next week with the wedding of our friends' daughter.
I've made a difficult decision to take a vacation from blogging as well. As much as I love it, it consumes so much of my time that I never get any major projects done these days, and there are quite a few that I would like to tackle in the weeks to come. I'm sure I'll be checking in on your blogs from time to time so you won't forget about me, but I won't be posting anything in the near future. Don't y'all have too much fun without me!
"See you in the funny papers!"

Molly at The Bumbles has chosen Highly Quotable Movies as her theme this week. I love quotes from movies, probably because at heart I'm a plagiarist and someone else's words almost always sound better than my own.
I know it's technically a mini-series, but it's a great movie to me...just extra long...my choice is Lonesome Dove.
"I hate rude behavior in a man. I won't tolerate it."
"I'm just tryin' to keep everything in balance, Woodrow. You do more work than you got to, so it's my obligation to do less."
"Well, I'm glad I ain't scared to be lazy."
"Well, hell, boys. I'd damn sight rather be hung by my friends than by a bunch o' damn strangers."
"I'god, a man could get rich in the grave digging business around here."
"A man that will talk to a pig ain't no better than a farmer."
"Well we don't rent pigs and I figure it's better to say it right out front because a man that does like to rent pigs is... he's hard to stop."
[This list doesn't contain any of the memorable exchanges between Gus and Woodrow.]

In the tradition of Ernest Hemingway, who was once challenged to write a short story in six words.
His six-word story was: "For sale: baby shoes, never worn."
Each week I will choose a theme. It is your mission, if you choose to accept it, to meet that challenge in six words, no more, no less.
If you like, you may illustrate with a photo, or not.
Punctuation will be your biggest ally.
If you decide to play, please link back to this post, and leave the link to your post in comments here.
If you don't want to create your own post, you can write your six-word story in my comments.
Beyond the wedding lies the marriage.
Thank you for playing.
