I have been sent a meme by Grannymar. I normally do not participate in memes but I simply cannot say no to Grannymar, particularly when she says that I am part of the gang of five people, who “make me struggle and suffer while chewing my pen each week, so now it is my turn to torment them! ”
In all fairness, Grannymar, who is just 28 was sent the meme by Darlene who is 82! So, cannot really break the chain started by such a spirited lady can one? What makes it impossible is this statement from Grannymar, which I reproduce in toto.
“I have been tagged by Darlene of Darlene’s Hodgepodge to do a Meme. Darlene began blogging at the very young age of 82!
YES! I did say 82.
Since then, despite a fall and hip surgery she has returned to living alone and blogging. A very wise and humorous lady, I could learn plenty just sitting at Darlene’s feet.”
And I am sure that I can learn a thing or two, if I were to sit at Grannymar’s feet.
The idea of the meme is to simply to pick the book nearest to you, turn to page 161 and copy the fifth sentence. And send it on to five people with the request that the meme be passed on to five others. Since my gang of five has alredy been hijacked by Grannymar, I have to choose five others and they are:
The book nearest to me just now is “Hindu Dharma – The Universal Way Of Life”, by Pujyasri Swami, Chandrasekharendra Saraswati.
The fifth sentence of the fifth page reads – “Dharma – and dharma alone – is our protecting shield.”
May Dharma protect Darlene, the gang of six (including Grannymar) and the five unsuspecting bloggers, who have just been invited to “have fun.” I am passing on the meme. Please pass on or not, as you decide. No offense will be taken if you decide not to.
