The wife and I were chatting yesterday, and we realized that I've worn pants a total of three times since May, and each of those times was while shooting a wedding. The rest of the time it's been either kilts or shorts. :chili:

In this case, your ellipsis may not be terminal.

It may not kill you; it may be a temporary illness; therefore, only three periods separated by spaces (the most common accepted vernacular usage); however, different styles (MLA, Chicago, etc) vary in the use and form of ellipses.

Just thought I'd get in before the grammar police wrote you another citation, Del.

http://www.thepunctuationguide.com/ellipses.html

If anyone criticizes your ellipses, simply tell them you are using a style sheet with which they are unfamiliar.

I've discovered that such use is much easier if the bodies are completely frozen before yanking the cord.

You forget that I live in Lubbock TEE-haus! Using a wood chipper here is more suspect than just shootin' someone.

While we were working in the yard yesterday, my daughter found an old 30th anniversary Philmont medallion. It's in pretty rough shape, but I'm keeping it anyway.

Once upon a time, it apparently looked like this:

It does not look like that now.

ETA: After a few more moments on Google, I think it was originally a neckerchief slide, but the back is now gone.
