[quote=""Misfit""]Went to the FOL sale last weekend. Found a 1954 copy of Katherine. No DJ, but look what's on the inside flap.[/quote]

Yes, my avatar is my pit bull, Angel. AKA Angelface, Babylove, Spoiledbrat! I found him in a Costco parking lot about 2 years ago when he was a little puppy. He's grown into the most wonderful sweetest dog ever. :)
