I've been Tagged

For the first time, I've been tagged....lol

I was to go to my 23rd post and to count the fifth sentence. And then to tag five other people. Humm... okay tagged are: Laura Flea, from "The Way Things Are" http://laura-flea.diaryland.com/index.html, Marilyn from "California Fever" http://marilyn.typepad.com/california_fever/ , Lady Linoleum from "Monster Crochet" http://monstercrochet.blogspot.com/ , Dana, from "Green Duckies" http://greenduckies.blogspot.com/ , and Kim (and LUNA) from "Soul Knitting" http://soulknitting.blogspot.com/

Now, you wouldn't think that would be so hard, but I had a problem. Some of my posts, esp at the very beginning of my "blogging career" were pictures posted with bloglines. One day might have 15 "posts". So, I decided to count each DATE as one post. Oddly enough, that gave me: July 23, 2005 as my "23rd" post. I liked that, as I like nice coincidence, and I especially liked that it just happened to be the post where I posted one of my poems.

That led to another dilemma. How to "count" the sentences in the post. It's a four stanza poem, each stanza is a sentence. Okay. That left me with the last sentence in my post, which was actually quite satisfying. "May all those who love, love long and love well."

All in all, a nice sentence, and a nice summation of my philosophy and hopes for others.

May it be a blessing to you.

  1. Very nice! I'm almost afraid to see what the heck my 23rd post was...I'm going to use my 23rd post on this 'new' blog...'cause I don't feel like going back to two years ago on the Island one. ;) I'll find it and post about it...

  3. Nancy, I did this once before.

    My sentence was simply this "I love blogger!"

    How absolutely boring but true. It was about eating cold tater tot hot dish in the break room so I wouldn't give up precious blogging time.

    I love your sentence as well!

  5. Just stopping by after getting that lovely comment from you. Thanks for that, I realize I am not the only one with that problem (which is sad) but it's nice to hear directly from someone else. Funny, I got tagged with this one too and I will do it over the weekend...I'm beat today and have other Friday Blog obligations. Come back any time! :)
