So, has anyone read theirs yet?

I just finished mine yesterday.


Yeah.....


I have good and not-so-good things to say about this book. And the not-so-good are what I was thinking before I even read it (when I mentioned earlier that I hoped my opinion would change - well, it has actually become a little more negative). But whatever not-so-good opinions that I have are NOT directed toward Laura at all. I am perfectly fine with her. And to tell you the truth, I think I like her better than I ever did before.

But I will save my opinions until later. I want to wait until I see that someone else has read it and what they think. Smile


Who's going to do the cooking?!?!

Interesting stuff about the "Half Pint" thing.........


Here’s the first reference in “Pioneer Girl” to Laura Ingalls as “Half Pint” — and what she was a half pint of:

(Pa) would come in from his tramp to his traps, with (icicles) on the ends of his whiskers, hang his gun over the door, throw off his coat and cap and mittens and call “Where’s my little half pint of cider half drank up?” That was me because I was so small. …

A footnote explains that when Wilder introduced her nickname in Chapter 2 of “Little House in the Big Woods,” it had become “little half-pint of sweet cider half drunk up.”

Are you going Rhonda? If I lived as close as you do, wild horses couldn't keep me away.
Go and enjoy for me.
