Nearest Book Experiment - Just for Fun

My daughter posted this on her Facebook page, and I thought it might be fun to do it over here. It's very simple:

1. Find the nearest book (right now, wherever you are-not a favorite book, the nearest book!).
2. Turn to page 56
3. Find the 5th sentence.
4. Copy it and add it to the comments.

I'll share some family favorite holiday recipes with one commenter. Let's play for a couple of days to give everyone a chance to share.

Mine: "Seconds later that promise was fulfilled by ten-foot iron gates." (Bones, by Jonathan Kellerman)

Today's Gratitude List:
1. The new veggie garden

2. The nice clerk at Michael's framing department, who trimmed my picture so I could fit it into a stock 16x20 frame and save the cost of custom framing -- and waived the usual fee. Maybe the cute factor of the photo helped.

3. Google Alerts for When Danger Calls. People are chec
king it out. Maybe they're pre-ordering. But I'm grateful just that they're looking. Honest.

Back when I was in the Navy in the late sixties I used to find a phrase and post it on the dutch door in the pharmacy. It be from profound to totally useless.

I like this game.
