For a brief time a while back, we flirted with doing a “Quote of the Week” and “Photo Friday” series. The idea never really took off, but it left a tiny scattered legacy on the blog.

So, in the interests of housekeeping while also preserving that legacy, we’re compiling those pearls (?) of wisdom (?) and humor (?) here for you. 😉

Feel free to save or share any of these as you please. Credit is given where it is known.
