The Friday 56

Welcome to Week 41 with me!



Rules:
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56.
*Find any sentence that grabs you.
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url.

It's that simple.



The hanging colored lanterns and yellow lights flamed out down the midway in a domino effect that wrapped around the curve of the chain-link border of the fairgrounds.
