ere of shabbos...

one of the memorable quotes from the movie the big lebowski:

walter: i told those guys down at the league office that i don't roll on shabbos!

donny: whats shabbos?

walter: saturday, donny, is shabbos, the Jewish day of rest.  that means that i don't work, i don't get in a car, i don't freaking ride in a car, i don't pick up the phone, don't turn on the oven and i sure as crap don't freaking roll!!!  shomer shabbos!

the dude: walter..

walter: shomer freaking shabbos!

tonight katie and i head to francesville for a little shabbos or shabbat...this weekend is the annual francesville fall case you aren't aware francesville is my hometown...francesville is a small (population 800) farming community in northwest indiana...some of the highlights of the fall festival include....
