I've Been Tagged

Book Meme Rules

1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.

I was tagged for this fun meme by Rufus McCain from Korrektiv (aka: my husband). I reached for the book that has been on my nightstand for a few months. I have slowly been making my way through it, but I haven't even made it to page 123, yet. The book is One True Thing by Anna Quindlen. Out of context, the three sentences are left for your imagination! Here they are:

"Does she have an odor?"
"God, no."
"That may come and when it does you will have to talk to her again."


So now I am suppose to tag five others. I am tagging five of my faithful blog readers but non bloggers: My mom, my mother-n-law, my favorite photographer friend (you know who you are!), Jen (Farnam), & the newly married Mrs. Powers! Please post your answer in the comments section!

Thanks and have fun! : )

"In the 1800's agriculture was dominate in American life, and Florida was the American farmer's dream because of its cheap acreage and a ten-month growing season. By the 1900's American ambitions shifted from good farming to "the good life,"and FClorida shifted with it--it still represented the farmer's dream, but it now also represented the middle-class dream of a place you could find health and warmth and leisure.

"Ah, but you didn't have to get the cow past me and these people."

Gwenda's heart leaped with hope.

She was not sure how many of the bystanders supported her, but if it came to a fight they were more likley to side with Madge, who was a townswoman, then with Sim, an outsider.

"I've dealt with obstinate women before," Sims said, and his mouth twisted as he spoke.

I was just revisiting your old blog!! I was looking for a link someone left for you. It was about a family that was expeciting 6 babies.

Our families favorite TV show is John & Kate plus 8. Drew watches it daily over and over again.

Love your new blog. Miss you. Jen
