#MicroMondays – 4



Today I was watching a really good movie about the first ever African American to play in the Major League Baseball, Jackie Robinson, on Amazon Prime and the it hit me that I had to get the prompt ready for the 4th edition of #MicroMondays.

(And for those of you who attempt to write what we call The Ones With All The Words, it might be time to get out your hyphens.)

Today, let’s give our 44th Quadrille a little extra kick.
