Friday Quote Day

This cracks me up. In much the same way that Crash Davis cracks me up when he asks Annie Savoy, "How come in former lifetimes, everybody is somebody famous?" [Has it really been 20 years since that movie was released?]

I collect quotes in a file on my computer, but they're all quotes from quote lists or quote sites. I have several books of quotations, but I rarely peruse them looking for Friday Quote Day fodder. It's easier to just cut and paste from my computer collection.

And reading or hearing a good line and then writing it down? Never happens. My daughter has been doing it for years and has an impressive notebook full of handwritten wisdom.

She didn't learn that from me.

I've a feeling the six-word memoir book might provide some inspiring quotes. I'll be in a big city over the weekend – blog break alert! – with a little time for shopping opportunities. I hope B&N has it in stock. For once I don't want to wait for delivery from just to save a little money.

Back on Monday. Y'all behave yourselves over the weekend.

Interesting observation about quotes. I do enjoy reading yours each Friday.

I LOVED that movie when it came out. Such a good one. Haven't seen it in years.

Enjoy your big city trip this weekend.
