I've been very remiss and not thanked Elsie Button for my award, don't know why she thinks I'm funny..ppffftt!
It's the second one I've had from her, Thank you Elsie!

I've also been tagged (in a ladylike manner) by Dulwich Mum:

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

Now DM wrote something quite risque and I felt somewhat shocked, I must say.
I picked up the nearest book thinking how boring mine would be in comparison, but, hey, I'm not so sure.

"This was a very impressive demonstration of raw power back in the early 1900s.
Pictured is Russell, a Giant being demonstrated with a bottom.
This bottom was lifted and dropped by the strong muscles of the two men riding."

Oh, hang on, I've noticed a few typo's, here we are, this is the quote...awfully sorry, innocent mistake to make...

"This was a very impressive demonstration of raw power back in the early 1900s.
Pictured is a Russell Giant kerosene-burning tractor being demonstrated with a 10-bottom John Deere plow.
This plow's 5 two-bottom units were lifted and dropped into the ground by the strong muscles of the two men riding the plow."

This quote is taken from "Genuine Value, The John Deere Journey" given to Darling Husband for his fortieth Birthday by our wonderful friend Vince Musi

I tag Elsie Button, Omega Mum, Sparx lets see how you do...

Frog in the Field said...

Gosh Dm, sorry to shock you.
Have a glass of this to calm your nerves..
Could I offer you a top up Potty?
Should we call her a cab DM, she's overdone it again!

As I read your post, child 2 said "Mum you always take the mickey when we laugh at our computer screens" it was funny, frog! Must borrow a few books off you sometime! Love MWF x

What a difference a typo can make. I'm sure there's a market for your specialist edition of agricultural books.

Pig in the Kitchen said...

wow. i thought all that talk of tractor magazines was just fleshing out your blog 'character'. but you really do read this stuff??!

Frog in the Field said...

Thank you MWF, nice to see you at mine.

Welcome SasseMum, nice to see you.

Pig...I do NOT read this stuff (sniff), how could you think I was so weird??!!.
Darling Husband reads the stuff, I was just doing the Meme thing and delighted in finding such fab text on page 123. He really is an avid fan, sad but true.
