Book Meme

We have a unique situation and a puzzle for you to solve. Charlie posted a book meme on Wednesday morning, 9 April and we are answering her on Chewsday night, 8 April. How can that be possible?

Here are the rules:
1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people and post a comment to Mickey once you have posted it.

Here is the book we got our paws on. It is by Dad's favorite author.

'Don't you know me?' he gasped, dropping into a chair, and he turned his drawn face, surmounted by a shock of grey hair, to the light.
I looked at him intently. Once before had I seen eyebrows that met over the nose in an inch-broad black band, but for the me I could not recall where.

The book Selected Stories, by Rudyard Kipling. The particular story on page 123 was "The Man Who Would Be King." Dad has tried to live his life by a Kipling poem.

We tag Gomer & Opie, Dakota, Jake & JH, Gunner and Maximillian the Valliant. We believe they will enjoy this meme the best.

Dog Speed,

Essex & Deacon

You're a better dog than I am, Gunga Din! You collies are ahead of your time, yes, but don't worry. The saying goes: Never worry about whether the world will end tomorrow; it's already tomorrow in Australia!

We did the meme... even though Opie ran away.

Maximillian the Valliant said...

Hmmm, you both got the wrong dates?

Hi Key Collies,

Nicky is about a year and a half old and he is very tall. But he doesn't weigh as much as the big ole moose Lily. But my doctor said that he needed to fill out still so she expected he would be about 80lbs eventually.

Did I mention that he sings?

I'm going to have to find a book and do that meme thing!
