message 1: by Katie (new)

Katie Flora Wilkins (kflora) Hi, I'm Katie from Birmingham, AL. I'm a retired attorney, and mom to a fluffy tortoiseshell cat, a pug dog, and a yellow lab (no, I haven't seen "Marley Me" and I'm not going to). I love to read, go to movies, travel, and go camping with my husband and two dogs.

I can tell this is a good group for me, as I have checked out several profiles here, and I've seen a lot of common stuff on our bookshelves. I like pretty much everything, except for sci-fi, fantasy, and horror (excluding Stephen King, of course).

I'm looking forward to a lot of good discussions here! Katie

Bird (thebird) I am a fellow animal lover as well! :O)
I have heard from numerous people that the movie of Marley & Me causes people to bawl, so I am currently avoiding it. A woman I work with told me that if I wanted to see it, I should wait until it comes out on video, so I can curl up at home with a box of kleenex ready!

Katie Flora Wilkins (kflora) Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

Bird, watching Marley & Me at home would probably be even worse, as I would most likely be curled up with my big blond girl. Otherwise, it looks like a great movie (my mom loved the book).

Lisa Julianna (lisajulianna) | 1053 comments HI Katie Welcome, I love cats and dogs too. We use to have cats then I found out I was allergic to them now we have 5 dogs. 2 Blood hounds, 1 Bassett hound and 2 miniature dauchshunds. I love them all. I am like you, I do not want to see the movie Marley and Me. My two kids went and saw it and said I would love the begining of it but would just bawl at the end.

Robin (robinsullivan) | 997 comments Welcome Katie - Aye King is good - and some of his non-horror stuff is his best - i.e. Different Seasons. Glad to have you as part of the group - and I promise not to hold the "no fantasy" thing against you ;-) (wink)

Katie Flora Wilkins (kflora) Fiona, thank you. Don't give up on having pets yet. Our new president is searching for a hypoallergenic dog for his girls. Nobody cares about his Mideast or economic policies, we're all holding our breath to see the new puppy!

Hayes (hayes13) Hey, Katie - how are you liking Prague? (the book, not the city... the city is great, but I haven't read the book!!)
