Six Word Saturday #421: The Final 6WS

But we sure did have fun!

Thank you to everyone who has played along over the years. I've really enjoyed sharing with you each week. It's been wonderful to see the different ways you each used your 6WS to share about your life or to do something creative. I never imagined when I started this silly post that so many would join in and it would go on for 421 posts. 

But now, I'm passing it on. I mostly quit posting on this blog years ago as my life changed. I haven't had the time to devote to visiting with each of you and I started to feel a lot of guilt for not being a better hostess. 

And no, this isn't an April Fool's joke. Though if it were, next week's six words would be "Just kidding - made you look, suckers!"

I'll try to join in occasionally over at Debbie's. But in the meantime, take care of yourselves - or I'll punch you in the face (some of you have been around long enough to remember that reference). 

STARTING NEXT WEEK: This is the final Six Word Saturday here at Show My Face. Beginning April 8, the weekly fun will be moving over to Travel With Intent. Debbie's been a frequent long-time 6WS contributor (and has a beautiful blog!) and she's graciously agreed to step up and take over for me. If you aren't already following Debbie, please follow her blog.

Want to play along? All that's necessary to participate is to describe your life (or something) in a phrase using just six words. For more information, try clicking here. Feel free to explain or not explain. Add an image, a video, a song, nothing. I love seeing what everyone does with their entries.

Please visit the person ahead of you on the list (or visit everyone if you like!). That way everyone receives at least one visit!

If you play along in your blog, please add a link to the Mr. Linky. I appreciate a link back. Otherwise, you're welcome to leave your six words in this post as a comment.

Please be sure to link either to your main page or (preferably) directly to the 6WS post. Links to blogs that do not contain a 6WS entry will be removed (sorry, just the button in the sidebar doesn't count as participating).


  1. Thank you and farewell . . . . .and wishing you lots of happy times and spare time in the future!

  2. Thank you for running this challenge so well and for so long. It has been great fun Cate. A good way to start the weekend.
    I look forward to you popping in now and then.
    In the meantime, chill and relax ��
    And if you ever want to take it back into your care, just shout!

  3. I am totally bumming about this news, Cate, and have said so several times over at the blog.

    Sail on, Sister; but if you ever need a safe port, you know where to come.

  4. Damnall, gonna miss you. You've done a marvelous job with this, and it's no mean feat to keep this up as long as you have. Be well, Cate. Don't forget to send a postcard now and then.

  5. Haven't played in a long time but always enjoyed it when I did. Thanks for a great run of a fun meme.


  6. Thank you so much Cate for hosting this for several years. It's due to your Six Word Saturdays that I found some wonderful blogs to follow. :)

  7. thanks for being such a good sport and hostess! Have a lovely time taking care of yourself!

  8. Thanks for the hundreds of weeks you did this for. It's sad that you're no longer doing it, but I do understand how your life can change and different things become more of a priority than others.

    (Please send any eMail replies to - thanks!)

  9. Thanks for starting Six-Word Saturday! Although I only get to visit occasionally, I value it as a regular part of my blogging life. Take care and enjoy your life. :-)


Awww, I love you guys too!
