The book takes place in our area. The scene where Marley is tied to the table and runs off taking the table with him? That took place at the shopping center walking distance from my grandparent's house. There is SO much in that book that made me laugh.
I was thrilled to find out they were making Marley & Me into a movie. Unfortunately, we were in Ireland when the movie came out. Tonight we finally got to see it. It was not quite as good as the book, but we still loved it.
Morgan and I were trying not to laugh out loud during the scene in Ireland. The only other people in the theater were
Rafa is so our Marley. He has calmed down a lot, but he is still a rascal. (I may have some posts to come from this.) It was fun to watch. We could really relate to so many parts of the film.
My mom has a firm policy not to read/see any book/movie in which an animal dies. The movie did have its sad moments, but all in all I enjoyed it. We did give the boys extra loving when we got home!
In other news, I got most of my "to do" list completed this weekend. Best of all I got to spend time with the Irishman. Ready or not, the weekend is over. Good night!
