For their weekend challenge this time, Trifecta wants 33 words by someone that we like to read (our favorite book quotes, as it were). I was going to go with the quote from “To Kill a Mockingbird”, towards the end, where Sheriff Tate declares that he may not be much, but he’s still the sheriff of this county, and Bob Ewell fell on his knife. But all of you know that book, so I’m going to use this as a vehicle to make people think of an author who deserves to be more popular, the great Irish author, Roddy Doyle (semi-famous for being the author of the book which the movie “The Commitments” was based on). From his book “The Woman Who Walked Into Doors”, we have:

I love book quotes and I don’t think I’ve ever counted to 33 more times in one weekend in my life. It’s blizzarding off and on here, but no 3 feet of snow like parts of New England got. Have a nice weekend and week, y’all.
