Laura, your grapefruit is just utterly too-too!*

I just ate the most delicious grapefruit known to man. Just had to let you know.

In other news, the baby kicked me awake this morning. I sternly told the fetus that such behavior is completely inappropriate in early morning and sent him/her to time-out over near my left ribcage. However, it couldn't truly think about what it had done, since its brain isn't fully developed yet. So I waited until it had quieted down and then I rewarded it with a prenatal vitamin.

Hey, it works on the dog.

The buggy ride with Nellie Olsen, Laura, and Almonzo Wilder in These Happy Golden Years, of course!

You'll be hard-pressed to find a LHOTP reference that I don't know.

If you pick up Nellie for a drive next week, Almanzo, don't stop for me.

Good night.

(I'm paraphrasing, of course...)

Does she actually say "you needn't stop for me?" That sounds even more dignified. I'll have to check tonight, unless Betsy knows.

p.s. Mike recently bought the whole set of Little House books for the baby. They look so amazingly new and clean! Even though my set is yellow and brittle, I can't bear to throw it out...

Isn't it, though, Betsy? :)

Liz, I think we might have found an addition to the book club discussion, whenever we get around to it...and how awesome that Mike bought the entire set for the baby!! He's a good man. You know, on eBay, someone was selling the complete collection of Little House books with the original drawings by Helen Sewell. I freaked out over that, but they were wanting a bundle for them.

Okay, here's exactly what Laura says, "If you want to take Nellie for a drive, do so, but do not come by for me."

Now that was a woman who could stand up for herself. We should all learn from her.... :)

and tell me truthfully, didn't you always want your mother to whip you up a brown poplin dress with a poke bonnet lined with blue silk?

and another thing.....even though i loved michael landon, it always distressed me that he didn't have a beard. pa wouldn't be pa without the beard.

Dude, I ALWAYS wanted a poke bonnet!

When I was in elementary school, mom made my sister and I matching Easter outfits one year- gingham dresses with white pinafores. I always tried to find areas with long grass so I could run and fall down on purpose.

Did anyone else think it was completely ridiculous that Ma made Laura wear red ribbons and Mary wear blue? I thought that very narrow-minded of her...

Also- I remember asking my mom if we could iron my ribbons so they wouldn't be "limp". I think she gave me a strange look...

Wait - I thought Laura wore pink ribbons!

B- actually, you're right! Her dress was red calico, but her ribbons were pink.

Phew. I told D all I remembered about LHOTP was the ribbon colors and the maple syrup from Little House in the Big Woods. And the locusts (later)...
