aepilot_jim came home, checked his blog and found he had been infested with a meme. Then he spread it north into the Osage Cuestas, where it bounced around some radio towers the fertilizer company put up so us unenlightened Republicans might enjoy the Internet.

The five people I am required to spread the meme to will wonder if it was a good thing the fertilizer company employees climbed up one of the towers today to fix the lightning-damaged hardware. The wind didn't pick up until after they fixed stuff, which is good because the gusts at that height can rip a pair of Big Smith overalls right off a fellow.

The instructions: Pass it on to five other bloggers, and tell them to open the nearest book to page 56. Write out the fifth sentence on that page, and also the next two to five sentences. The CLOSEST BOOK, NOT YOUR FAVORITE, OR MOST INTELLECTUAL!

element: to hold in high esteem ant despise
appreciation n. 1 a: sensitive awareness; esp. recognition of aesthetic values b: JUDGMENT, EVALUATION; esp. a favorable critical estimate


There you go, Jim. You now know what book is close to hand: Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary. It was either that or a book of coupons without page numbers. I'll pick five victims tomorrow. It's getting late.

Well, I'm looking after my mother after she had foot surgery and I've picked up some dinky virus that doesn't amount to much except slowing me down a dab.

If any of you read this, consider yourselves meme meat. You've been tagged. Maybe there will be five of you who will bump in here during the next week!
