When I was a kid I had a huge crush on Melissa Sue Anderson, who played Mary Ingalls, I always thought that one day when I grow up, I would marry a girl that looked just like her

FWIW, I never read the books or watched the TV show--never could stand Michael Landon.
Is that even legal?! You didn't like little Joe?

When I was in the 5th grade, our teacher, Mrs. Montgomery, read the whole series of books to us over the course of the school year. She was my favorite teacher and I will always remember her for that and for passing on her love of reading to her students.

Thanks for the link John!

Very interesting. Thank you for posting this information.

I'm huge admirer of Laura Ingalls. One day, I hope to visit the Ingalls homes that are open to the public. Laura was a woman way ahead of her time. She wrote the Little House books when she was in her 60s with lots of help from her daughter Rose. I admire Rose too for being ahead of her time, but less than Laura because of her early support for fascism. Rose went to Vietnam at age 78 to write articles about the war.

Interesting, but I had to laugh that this was posted in the Celebrities forum.
