  1. Great photos for the challenge, they define a couple of ‘ups’ perfectly. The quotes are so fun. lol Thanks for sharing them. 😉


    1. Hi EC – The photo challenge looks like a good way of using photos that I haven’t yet written stories about!


  2. This post is so brilliant! Woodey Allen is great. I watched the “Midnight in Paris” last month, absolutely enjoyed it!


  3. Hi Margie! Great results. I love to see what different ideas people come up with when the same concept is presented to them.


  4. Yeah Vegas!! Have you ever been in a balloon? That’s one of those things that sounds so cool, but not sure I’d have the cajones to get in one! Great quotes… the Churchill quote is fantastic!


  5. We should have the Fifth Dimension playing in the background on this one. Love your photos and the Churchill quote.

    According to Merriam Webster online, my go-to source, there is NO rule that you can’t end a sentence in a preposition. Still goes against the grain with me.


    1. Hi pegoleg – It is simply wonderful what can be found on the internet. Apparently Churchill’s quote came about because he had been criticized for ending a sentence in a preposition. He responded, “That is the kind of thing up with which I will not put.” He was making fun of the non existent rule.
