Safe and sound in Austin I am, and/but learning that my brother's duties will be to teach Iraqis how to run military warehouses . . . maybe in Kuwait, but possibly in Iraq (he doesn't yet have his orders). He's learning some Arabic, which is cool. The "Iraq" part is a bit less cool, though.
Fellow Texan N. of Sinequanon has tagged me with an unusual book meme. Here goes:
*Find the nearest book.
*Name the title and author.
*Turn to p. 123.
*Post sentences 6-8.
*Tag 3 more people.
Sounds like fun, though I'm not sure what will be done with all these spare parts. So, here goes:
My book: The Known World, by Edward P. Jones (I'm finally getting around to reading this, and I'm both happy that I am and very sad that I have waited this long).
And here are sentences 6-8 on p. 123:
"Who's that you playin with like children in the dirt?"
"That Moses. You know Moses, Mr. Robbins."
Perhaps this exquisite corpse (if that's what it is to be) can use a little dialogue.
And now, 3 people to tag:
Joel Mathis of Cup o' Joel
Debra of Reflecting
and Hank of A Lake County Point of View
