This week's theme is Feeling (Happiness, Sadness, Surprise, etc).

Here's mine from March Violets by Philip Kerr (p.
64):

"Do you like jazz?" she said, changing the subject. "Oh, it's all right, it's not negro jazz. I love it, don't you?" Only non-negro jazz is permitted in Germany now, but I often wonder how they can tell the difference.

"I like any kind of jazz," I said. She wound up the gramophone and put the needle into the groove. It was a nice relaxed sort of piece with a strong clarinet and a saxophonist who could have led a company of Italians across no man's land in a ba
rrage.

Oh I love your choice - it was perfect!
Still windy out here so I was afraid I wouldn't get in this week. I am trying to post as much as I can in case the power goes down again. Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving your comment I needed it.
