Are you excited about the possibility of a Little House on the Prairie movie? I am, although they're going to struggle to find actors who look just like Michael Landon and Melissa Gilbert, and...well...authenticity is important, and those two are Pa and Laura, and that's all I have to say about that.
I guess I was not alone in wanting to be as good as Mary, as beautifully dressed as Nellie, and as independent as Laura. Even as a youngster, I admired the Ingalls' sense of family, and their ideas of what were important. I loved their simple life.
I'm suppose that before the film comes out I should reread the series. I read the first four or with Jemimah a few years back, but she took over the reading of the rest, and I haven't read them since school. I have Pioneer Girl sitting on the shelf, too. You can't do enough preparation for these very important events, now, can you, and this is clearly important. Mind you, every time I read these books I find myself needing to make quilts, and corn dollies and maple syrup candy. Maple syrup! I've always wanted to go to a sugaring! See? I just get carried away. Imagine what a movie will do. If they can find the right actors, that is. Otherwise it'll be a wash.
