Six-Word Memoir

Anita over at Blue Country Magic recently tagged me to write a six-word memoir. Here goes (with apologies to Julius Caesar who reportedly said, Veni, vedi, vici):

I came, I saw, I wrote.

It sounds classier in Latin:

Veni, vedi, scribi.

Luckily, my husband—who took four years of Latin at Dunellen High School and still has his Latin book— helped me with the translation.

Now, I tag Marion, Debi, and Amy H —but only if they want to be tagged.

I will accept your tag, but did this already. I would love to do something new though (improvement is one of my strong points).

Let me think this out a little first. I will post my six-word memoir in a couple of days.

By the way, I love yours!

Love that six word memoir! Pretty much sums it up, yep.

Thanks for playing. I knew you'd be great at it!

I'm game. It'll be fun. Give me a couple of days to think about it and then I'll put it on my blog. I'm working on a post right now about my daughter the pig girl.
