RIP

Hey, CLAY, are we the only ones old enough to have had a pre-pubescent crush after Melissa Sue Anderson?-

We were young then and she went blind in the show, so I know I had a shot.

My 7 year old daughter adn I are reading through the series and are on the last book.

She wants me to buy her the whole TV series so she can watch them all as well.  I saw them as a small kid and my mom really got into the via her Swedish homesteading past.

RIP Nels - finally some well deserved rest.
