Tag, your it!

I am not really sure what being “tagged” means. Nothing on my blog or my dashboard indicated I had been tagged. However using my powers of deductive reasoning, I guess it has something to do with adding a link in this post to some of your blogroll friends, and also making sure they are reading your posts. So anyway I guess I have been tagged, thanks Nick. Here it goes!

1. Grab the nearest book to you that has 123 pages or more. (No Cheating)
2. Find Page 123
3. Find the first five sentences
4. Post the next 3 sentences
5. Tag Five people

And here is what I came up with:

“During the night, their sleep was interrupted by many blood-curdling cries and howls; they were glad to be up an hour before dawn, to have prayer and then breakfast.

“But presently, all of the sudden, they heard a great and strange cry, which they knew to be the same voices they [had] heard in the night, though they varied their notes, and one of their company, being aboard, came running in and cried, “Indians, Indians!” and withal, arrows came flying in amongst them . . .two muskets were discharged at them, and two more [men] stood ready in the entrance of their rendezvous, but were commanded not to shoot till they could take full aim at them . . . The cry of Indians was dreadful . . .”

The skirmish continued, with neither side gaining any advantage, until several of the Pilgrims, wearing coats of mail, rushed forth from the barricade and discharged their muskets together.”

-“The Light and the Glory” by Peter Marshall and David Manuel

Sorry that was so long, but it was a quote within the quote. This spiritual history of the founding of America has become an ongoing bestseller, now introducing a new generation to America’s Christian heritage. It is curriculum for my 3 home schooled children. It offers great insight to the truth about our history and some obscure figures that were more integral to our foundation that some of the more popular lore.

Carol Ann Kelly, Rob Kelly, Greg Stier, Debb Bresina, you’ve been tagged! (Sorry, I only have 4. And not sure they all read this.)

  1. Well, you are partially correct in the reason behind these. The main reason is just to have fun and give your friends a fun reason to post. These always help me out with writers block.

    And boy howdy would public schools be in an uproar if they found out you were teaching this 😉

  2. Oh yeah, there is that fun thing also.

    You mean because I am not teaching that watered down “Columbus discovered America, we got along with the Indians” mythology they use, or because it was written by a Christian? Hence the very reason my children are not government educated. My 9 year olds “required” reading is all seven books of the “Chronicles of Narnia” instead of the drunken, murdering debacle “The Outsiders”. She finished them all before she was 8! But you are correct Nick, they would be awfully upset. lol!

  3. I was thinking the first part, but the later also holds true. And speaking of Narnia I can’t wait for Prince Caspian to come out in the theater I am so stoked!
