September Book Club

Last night we got together again for book club. Savannah chose this month's book, "Marley & Me" by John Grogan.

John and Jenny were just beginning their life together. They were young and in love, with a perfect little house and not a care in the world. Then they brought home Marley, a wriggly yellow furball of a puppy. Life would never be the same.

Marley quickly grew into a barreling, ninety-seven-pound streamroller of a Labrador retriever. He crashed through screen doors, gouged through drywall, and stole women's undergarments. Obedience school did no good — Marley was expelled.

And yet his heart was pure. Just as Marley joyfully refused any limits on his behavior, his love and loyalty were boundless, too. A dog like no other, Marley remained steadfast, a model of devotion, even when his family was at its wit's end. Unconditional love, they would learn, comes in many forms.

Savannah fed us a delicious dinner of Chunky Potato Chowder and Parmesan Rolls with Festive Cranberry Drink and for dessert we had German Chocolate Bars. Since this book has been made into a movie we decided to watch it as part of book club last night with Goblin's Orange Popcorn, which Savannah dyed purple instead. ;) Until next month!
