    Check out this great listen on Lorelei King reads Susan Coolidge's classic tale about feisty Katy and her adventures. Twelve-year-old Katy lives with her father, Aunt Izzy, and five younger brothers and sisters in the little town of Burnet. Tall, tomboyish and with a head full of plan. The things I will do to avoid getting real work done. Have some unbetaed Wodehouse/Avengers crossover because why the hell not; I've been trying to kick-start my writing for months, and it isn't happening. Warning: I do not play golf. This will be obvious to anyone who does play golf and reads this. Feel free to correct me on it.
