Almonzo was a Hottie

Recently I decided to reread the Little House on the Prairie books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. I had read them a few times as a child and remember liking the stories. Currently I am on the 4th book, By the Shores of Silver Lake, and my interest in Laura herself is becoming more peeked. Since I am enthusiastic about all things history, today I had to google Laura and read all of her background information. The little tid-bits make reading the books more fun--especially knowing that the characters are (or were) real. This is a thrill I can't get from most of my favorite books--there ain't no photographs of Edward out there I can dig up.

Anywho, I discovered something interesting. Laura's husband, Almonzo, was HOTT. I had always hoped for this truth but was never quite sure, what with the ugly guy from the tv series always floating around in my head. (Yich! Cut your hair!)

On a more sober note, Laura, according to Charming, was "plain". Personally I think this analysis is a bit harsh--just a bad hair day on the one day a decade she got her picture taken. Dang. But kudos to you Laura for landing that Almonzo.......

Okay, everytime I read something that you wrote, I kill over laughing. I just had all the girls in the office ask me what was so funny. I LOVE ALMONZO!!! Actually I feel the same way about the guy in the tv series. Bah...he didn't do it for me. My made up picture of Almonzo was always amazing. Basically I wanted to find myself one of those. Laura was so blessed! *sob*
