Here are the rules:
1. Grab the nearest book of 123 pages or more.
2. Open it to page 123.
3. Find the first 5 sentences and write them down.
4. Then invite 5 friends to do the same.
We are currently on page 101 of Mama Pajama's book so page 123 is still a surprise to us! We have been enjoying this book immensely! We smile and we laugh out loud and we sniffle and we sob! This book doesn't have chapters - it has short stories all throughout the book. We like this because we can read a short story and put the book down and think about what we read and savor it!
The short story that has so far gotten to mom like no other is the one about the puppy auction! Mom just sobbed and sobbed after reading this and for days she couldn't stop thinking about it! It forever made an impact on her! We think because Mitch came from a pet store and prior to that a puppy mill, it really hit close to home!
So back to page 123:
This short story is titled, Show me the money!
Entries were down a little bit for our first race meet of 2001. Did this represent some impending doom for Whippet racing in Maryland? Nope.
The drop could be explained simple: every bitch in the world came in season during the first week of April! Lordy be, as Terrie would say. But we had twenty-tree adults on Saturday , and twenty-eight adults on Sunday, and five puppies both days, and I enjoyed the slower pace that the lower entry afforded the beleaguered and ineffectual Race Secretary.
We're actually cheating by reading ahead at this point and now our interest is piqued! No more cheating!We're not going to tag anyone because we don't know who reads books and who doesn't but if you'd like to play along then consider yourself tagged!
We also want to thank Lucy for the Sweet as Sugar award! Thank you so much, Lucy! We are so honored! We happily pass this award onto our M&M racing buddy Kaos! Here's hoping that Kyle comes in first next week!
So until next time...............
Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
