Fifth sentence meme

I was tagged by Roland and Nunyaa to participate in this sentence meme. I did it off my own bat in March, but what the hey, if the tv can show repeats then so can I!

The meme is pretty simple:

1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.

Here goes. The book nearest me is my next planned read. It's Ten Little New Yorkers by Kinky Friedman

"He claimed that they has robbed several convenience stores, which turned out never to have been robbed. Best of all, when the cops told him that the bowling alley had been burglarized the night before the murders, Max confessed to that crime as well. What he didn't know was that the burglars had already been arrested."

Who to tag? I'll come back on that one.

Reminds me of a scene from a Steinbeck novel. I'll have to check this one out!

Kawania che Keeteru!

Happy 1st of Sweet May, jams!

"A Song for St. Tammany's Day.

On Schuylkill's banks how sweet to rove!
Fidelia by my side;
The nymphs and swains in every grove
Walk like bridegroom and bride.

Behold yon cott in gayest mood!
Doth cleave the silver wave;
‘Whilst boys behind each corps of wood,
Their limbs do freely lave.

The variegated hills and dales!
Are drest in lively green;
The orchards and embroider'd vales,
With richest flowers are seen.

The little lasses dance and sing!
And in the alcoves play;
All nature now is on the wing!
In all the pride of May.
