What’s Happening in Nashville: Cheekwood in Bloom

Margaret:  “It’s going to rain!”
Marianne:  “It is NOT going to rain.”
Margaret:  “You always say that and then it always does!”
Marianne:  “There’s a bit of blue sky, let us chase it!”

Sense and Sensibility 1995 movie based on Jane Austen’s novel
