Tag

A while ago, I was tagged and completely forgot about it until today!  My apologies on the late participation, but here goes:

1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages)

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls 

2. Open the book to page 123.

3. Find the fifth sentence.

4. Post the next three sentences.
We’d love it in West Virgina, she told us.  We’d live in the forest in the mountains with the squirrels and the chipmunks.  We could meet our grandma and grandpa Walls, who were genuine hillbillies.

5. Link back to the person who tagged you.

Michelle 

6. Tag five other people. 

I’m really not sure that I know five other fellow bloggers, so I think I’ll make this a “commenting” tag from here on out. 

I tag:

Mom C.

Mom E.

Garth

Gavin

Amber 

Leave a comment with the book information and whether or not you tag anyone else is fine by me! 🙂

    It will be hard enough being away from you and Mama.”
    Her father admitted that she had always needed to have time on her own. “It’s our fault,” her father said, finally.

    No tagging Amanda, you’re my only blogger!

  2. Was the book you were reading written about my in-laws? Is that why you tagged me?

    Anyway, nearest book (since I’m in my classroom) is Knots in my Yo-Yo Strings by Jerry Spinelli. My favorite line is from the chapter entitled “War” and it says this…”But his main feature was teeth. He was a walking warning against not brushing. When he smiled, you found yourself looking at all the colors in your crayon box…”

  3. I don’t follow directions well. Had I thoroughly read the directions (something I hound on my middle school kids for neglecting quite often), the correct answer would be:

    I had run for class president, along with Bill Steinberg, Susan Lane, and Bob Peterson. A teacher came in and made the announcement. I had won.

  4. 1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages)
    The Deadwood Trail by Ralph Compton

    2. Open the book to page 123.

    3. Find the fifth sentence.

    4. Post the next three sentences.
    “I’m pretty good with a big blade,” said Oscar Fentress, “but I’ve never kilt nobody.”
    “We’ll wait and see what Quickenpaugh has to say,” Cal replied.”
    “Old Buffalo will if all fight, many die,” said Quickenpaugh.

    I don’t know any more about the plot, but page 123 seems heavy on death talk.
