123 MEME

Okay, so it’s my turn. This is my first “tagging” since starting my blog. It’s been going around for a few weeks on the blogs of my friends, but it took my dear wife – who is new to the blogosphere, mind you – to tag me! J

It’s the now famous 123 Book meme. Many of you know that this is how it works:

1. Pick up the nearest book that has at least 123 pages.

2. Open the book to page 123

3. Find the fifth sentence.

4. Post the next three sentences.

5. Tag 5 people

Well, in addition to my theological reading, I have a biography of Walt Disney on hand, entitled: Walt Disney: An American Original. I have not yet arrived at page 123, so this is a surprise to me too! This is in chapter 10, and it speaks of Walt’s business in 1934. (I added the fourth sentence, since it completed the paragraph and the context.)

One cartoon producer made a habit of luring away Disney artists after each Disney success. “Let Disney win the awards and train the artists,” said the rival; “I’ll hire them away and make the money.” It was a logical plot, but it somehow failed in execution. The rival’s cartoons could never match the Disney quality.

Thanks, Honey, for the tag! I think the majority of my friends have also been tagged, but here are a few…

Pastor George Borghardt at Bloghardt’s Reflector http://blog.higherthings.org/borghardt/

Sandra Ostapowich at Madre’s Missives

Jon Kohlmeier at the Monk of Mequon

Stan Lemon at StanLemon.net http://www.stanlemon.net/index/articles/index.html

Oh! and if Pastor Mark Buetow has time to steal away from his work as Internet Services Executive of Higher Things, and can blow the cob webs off of his blog, I tag him too! :-)

And I feel like a complete heel not realizing you had a blog! I think you told me about it long ago, but like my kids that info went in one ear and out the other. Now you're bookmarked and I'll enjoy checking in on you as well as your lovely bride. :-)
