A Game of Tag!

I'd like to thank everyone who left such nice comments on my last post.  I have been sick these last few days so I have not been able to send out thank yous like I normally would.  I am feeling better now and am going to play one of those meme things going around because I was tagged by Mrs. Linklater and no one crosses Mrs. Linklater, LOL! 

Just kidding, Mrs. L. is a great lady and I have so much respect for the humor, insight and occasional rants I get to read when I visit her journal "Mrs. Linklater's Guide To The Universe."  One hint, though, about Mrs. L.  If she gives you the inside scoop to bet on an upcoming football game, run the other way.

To see how this game found it's way to me click on this link to her entry where I was tagged.  http://journals.aol.com/jevanslink/AskMrsLinklater/entries/2103

Okay, so here are the rules.  I must admit, I have no idea what is up with this little game, but it's simple, quick, and Mrs. L asked me to play.  So, here goes:

The rules are simple:

1) Go to your journal's archives.
2) Find the 23rd post.
3) Find the 5th sentence in that post.
4) Post that sentence with these instructions.
5) Tag five more people.

My 23rd post was titled "Running Late" and was posted on August 15,2005.

http://journals.aol.com/gaboatman/DockLines/entries/499

The fifth sentence was:

"In truth, I was only two minutes late, but that is not like me and I still felt the pressure I put on myself."

I'm going to tag:

Robin:  http://journals.aol.com/robinngabster/Thesearethedaysofourlives/

Dona:  http://journals.aol.com/delela1/BlueSkiesandGentleBreezes/

Celeste:  http://journals.aol.com/csandhollow/Mydayandthoughts

Tina:  http://journals.aol.com/onemoretina/Ridealongwithme

Karen:

Okay, that's six, I know, but Jimmy chose six and so shall I.

Hello Sam glad you are feeling better.  I was tagged with that one a couple of weeks ago. I was asked a question the other day via my Journal - which made me think..The question was :
"If I was to be evacuated and every materialistic need would be there for me when I arrived...What would be the three things sentimental or otherwise would I like to take with me"  :  My answers were..
1) The letters my Mum left for us found after her death.
2) My Dads ring which I bought for him on his 70th Birthday
3) My Hubbies watch which still ticks two and a half years after his death.
Wonder what things you would want to take ? I would be interested to know....Ally

Glad you are feeling better.  Haven't been in J-Land lately with Ms Rita knocking out my power but now I'm catching up on all that I missed.  I'm baaaaaaaaack!  LOL

madmanadhd said...

Hope you are back up to speed. Interesting game.... makes me want to read more of your 23rd entry... perhaps that's the hook eh? I learned in my college years to never bet on a football game... specially the sure bets.

Well, I'm not afraid of that Mrs. L person. I'd just tell her to...wait, she's not behind me, is she?

I must have some brain. I recognised that sentence the moment I read it as it was the first entry I ever read of yours. How about that?

Glad you're feeling better Sam.

I detest being late as well, which has been a real problem since I live in a home with 4 men who are so laid back that they always catch a plane about 2 minutes before it takes off. It's caused me a great deal of indigestion over the years but I plod on because I love them so much.
Just noticed your pic. You look like Indiana Jones!
