Tagged Again

Jen just tagged me for this one.

The last time I did this the closest book was "Windows for Dummies" or something like that. This time is was my Kodak instruction booklet. Surely that's not what they had in mind.

Sue Grafton
S is for Silence (I'm rereading it now)

I let the silence extend, wondering what he'd offer by was of filling it in. I was just about to get antsy and jump into the breech myself when he spoke up. "Here's something I never told anyone about Violet."

I don't usually tag people but Bacchus just tagged me for 6 weird things - one more time. It's back in my archives somewhere and it anyone is interested, I'll dig it back out and recycle.

So, Bacchus, you and anyone else who hasn't done it and would like to try:

Pick up the book closest to you
Go to page 123
Go down 5 lines
Enter the next three sentences.

In other news, not much has changed. I'm going to try to post about more cheerful subjects for the time being. It takes my mind away from what's going on with me. A friend (Hi Ginny) wondered about blogging. The answer - this is my support and a lifeline to the world. As long as I can do it, I probably will.

Some people crochet, some people go bowling, I blog, read blogs, and answer comments.

I also find blogging a very relaxing outlet, and the support network that we form from this is just amazing, isn't it??
((hugs))

And blogging is a great hobby - it keeps some of us off the streets. :) ec

Where are your 6 weird things?

I have The Civil War by Geoffrey Ward on my desk: "Pope was convinced the battered rebels would now flee, and promised a relentless pursuit the next day. Meanwhile, the other wing of Lee's army had arrived, and at two in the afternoon Major General James Longstreet sent five divisions storming into the Union flank along a two mile front.

Twenty-five thousand men were killed, wounded, or missing at Second Bull Run, five times the figure that had so horrified the country the first time the North and South fought there."

There you go. Second Bull Run.

Awwww ... I'd so do the book thing if I had a book near me! But, alas, I'm at work and therefore am swimming in paperwork instead. :) Want a fax sheet? ;D

Hope you've been doing great, Granny!

Hi Ann. Good on you. But not easy - glad all this is a life-line though. I think of you as I make my pastry and bake my mince-pies. xx

I enjoy Sue Grafton's books, too. I don't think I've gotten to "S", yet, though.
