In Six Words

Nature Knitter tagged me with the six-word memoir task. When faced with the Hemingway quote that started it all, the task is especially daunting. The story goes that Hemingway once bet $10 that he could sum up his life in six words. He summed it all up with For Sale: Baby shoes; never worn.

I am no Hemingway, and I can't possibly sum up my life in six words but I can impart some meaningful pieces.

Happy mom loves to climb mountains.

The rules say to pass it on, so here goes. Texican, S.J., Tom and Atticus and Elementary--tag, you're IT.

Here are the meme rules:

1. Write your own six word memoir.
2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.
3. Link to the person who tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.
4. Tag five more blogs with links.
5. And don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!

Always pressing the old man's envelope aren't you? I guess it's time I figured out the link feature on the post. I'm on it.

Okay, count me in! Got to get working on it :) I'm actually happy to be tagged, it's my very first tag and what an honour! Now, down to work...

I knew I made good choices with those tags.

Nice to meet you too, bookbabie--I like your blog and will be reading it regularly.

Hey Beth, Good Job! Your memoir gave me a big smile :-D
Thanks for playing along.

Whew, my assignment is done :) I did my best, lacking the numbers though.
Beth, your memoir is really lovely, I thought I had mentioned that yesterday but I suppose I was too caught up in realising I'm not Hemingway to notice...sigh...
