Tagged at last -- Page 123

In the past I've always flown under the radar enough to not get tagged. Noah has changed all that. Thanks for thinking of me.

The rules:

  1. Pick up the nearest book.
  2. Open it to page 123.
  3. Find the fifth sentence.
  4. Post in your blog the following three sentences.
  5. Tag five or more people, and acknowledge the person who tagged you.

'Without there is a good understanding between the officers a ship cannot be happy: and a happy ship is your only good fighting ship -- you should hear Nelson on that point: and I do assure you it is profoundly true. He will be dining with us, and I should take it very kindly if you would, as it were ... ah, Mr Dillon, come and join us in a glass of grog.'

Partly for professional reasons and partly because of an entirely natural absence, Stehen had long ago assumed the privilege of silence at table; and now from the shelter of this silence he watched James Dillon with particular attention.

I had to be reading a book with a wordy author... Master and Commander by Patrick O'Brian. I should be finishing it tonight and have another good novel lined up.

Now, the tough part -- Most of the people I had in mind have already been tagged. Noah (I'll return the favor some day) and Dave are out. How about the other Dave? Fritz probably gets a ton of these and he can forgo if he'd like. What about Midnight Rider? Nope, he's already been tagged.

Well, I mentioned 5, does that count?

Your welcome to use my blog roll to try and make more friends. I have a few in the bank just for tagging. 8>)
