PostSubject: In the Spotlight: Lori!   Fri Jun 10, 2011 7:23 pm

Here it is another Friday night - which means a new Spotlight! I'm really enjoying these! In this week's spotlight is Lori, who has been a member here for coming up on ten years now! Thank you for giving us the opportunity to get to know you a little more about you, Lori!

Getting to Know Lori!








How did you get interested in LHOTP? I watched it when it originally aired.

Which came first for you: the books or the TV series? The TV series, which eventually led me to ask for the books for Christmas. I got the yellow boxed set.

If you’ve read any of the books, which one do you like best? I have read them all. My favorites are Little House in the Big Woods, Farmer Boy, and These Happy Golden Years.

How often do you watch the TV series? I don't watch it much anymore. I have them all on DVD so I can watch them when I want, or I occasionally catch an episode on Hallmark.

Have you watched other productions of LH? If so, did you like them? Yes, I have watched Beyond the Prairie and the ABC production. I liked Beyond the Prairie better than the ABC version.

Did you get to see the LHOTP musical with Melissa Gilbert? No

Do you have a favorite character? Laura

Do you believe that the moral lessons that Little House taught helped to make you a better person? No, being raised in a Christian home and going to a Christian school was the biggest influence.

Is there an episode that stands out in your mind as a favorite? There are many great episodes, but Back to School is one of my favorites.

Do any of the episodes move you to tears? If so, why? No, I think I've seen them too many times.

Who do you most relate to? Laura, even though I'm not much like her.

Where were you born? Ohio

How many states/places have you lived in? I've lived in two states.

How many people are in your family? 4

Have you ever been married? / Are you married? I'm married.




Do you have children? 2 girls.




Do any others in your family share your affection for Little House on the Prairie and Laura Ingalls Wilder’s work? The kids used to watch them when they were little. Erin still watches sometimes. They have both read a book or two, but I could never get them to read them all.

Have you met any of the cast members? No.

Do you own anything Little House related? We have Kevin Hagen's autograph.

Have you met any of the board members? No. (**Savannah's side-note...I'd like to change that someday, Lori!
)

How long have you been a member on the LH board? Since the end of 2001, I think.

What are some things that you enjoy doing to relax? Relax? I don't do much of that anymore.

What season do you like best? Spring, summer, autumn or winter? Fall.

What season were you born in? Spring

What is your favorite holiday? Christmas

What are some of your best memories? Growing up in a small town, I could ride my bike all over town.

How did you find this board? When the kids were little, a Christian station started showing LH each evening so we would watch it. I hadn't seen it in years (not since the internet was was available) so I started searching Little House on the internet and came across the board.

What is one of the things you like best about our LH board? We have lots of nice people on here.

Were you shy or outgoing as a child? Shy

What did you want to be when you were growing up, and did that pan out? Detective, archeologist, scientist. Um, no.

What was your first pet? A dog

Did you go to your prom? If so, what was the theme & style of the time? We didn't have prom at my Christian school. We had a Junior/Senior banquet. I don't recall a theme. There weren't many decorations. I wore a Gunnie Sax dress that was kind of prairie style.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thanks again, Lori! Nice to get to know you a little better!

This is really a nice way of getting to know you Lori. You have a sweet looking family. In the second photo, your daughter on the right looks a little like a younger Reese Witherspoon!

I'm hoping for it to be! If I can keep up, it'll be a Friday night feature.

Do you have to submit photos for the spotlight?

Thank you! If things get too busy I'll take you up on that!

Julia, no you don't have to submit photos. I just thought it would be nice to have a picture or two to go with the Spotlight. It isn't required by any means, though. Whatever each person is comfortable sharing is what I'll post. I don't want to make anyone uneasy.

Okay. Well pre-warn me before you put me in the spotlight. LOL!

I love this! Nice job, Sannah and Lori! I remember years ago we would occasionally post "bios" on each person. As new people joined we would expand it year to year. I am so glad we now have an "updated" version of that! grinsmiley
