Saturday Sing-a-Long
(You know the tune)

car tires
and windows
and multi-guest parties

and ironing
and tolerate smarties

ill-behaved children
and others' pet poo

These Are a Few of the Things I Won't Do!

(Oh, yes -- and TAGS!!!)

I am responding only because this treacherous "gottcha" came from a BlogSon. Et tu, Sailor? It has to end somewhere -- so here is a line in the sand. See details below from A Sailor in the Desert. Indigo readers who would like to voluntarily participate and carry forward the Tag, have at it. Post it on your blog and Tag whomever you please. Here is HALF of my obligation - and that's all I'm going to say about that.

Tagged again!
I got tagged once again. That means I need to post the answers to four questions and then tag five others. If you found an invitation to read this in your Comment Section that means you have been tagged. So here are the questions and my answers.

(1) Number of books you own: I do not think I can count that high.....LOL
(2) Last book bought: Talon of the Silver Hawk. I needed some SciFiFantasy to get away from the day to day realities of life.
(3) Last book I read: The Art Of War by Sun Tzu. Well re-read actually. As David said, the Chinese still use these priciples of warfare. Our elected officials and their appointees need to constantly re-read this book.
(4) Five books that mean a lot to me: So many books, so few to select.
(1) The Federalist Papers. They are the explanations of the Republic.
(2) The Art Of War by Sun Tzu. His thoughts and ideas are still taught and used in China today. If you're concerned about China's policies you should read this book. No need to improve on this answer.
(3) The Anti-Federalist Papers. Always good to see the opposing point of view.
(4) Diplomacy by Henry Kissinger
(5) Without Remorse by Tom Clancy. For reasons best known to only me.
I will be posting invitations some time early morning. So watch your comments!

Update: I have selected my victims:

Cao's Blog - One smart lady!
e-Claire - Another really smart lady!
Indigo Insights - Another very smart lady and my beloved BlogMom!
Obnoxiuos Droppings - My BlogBrother and I always did wonder what went on in the head of a Marine.
Pirate's Cove - I always wanted to be a Pirate.

Let the games begin!
