after the gold rush


Was watching Little House On The Prairie last night and again today while I did the ironing. One day might finally make it throught the DVDs I bought months ago. My only complaint with the ones I have is that they are series 1 and 2 and Nellie - The Bitch - hasn't really put in that much of an appearance. I want to get hold of the one where Laura lets go of the wheelchair with Nellie in it and lets her go down a steep hill to take revenge on her. Thought it might have been in amongst these episodes -but not much in the way of naughty Nellie so far.

Last night it was an episode where Charles was working his guts out doing extra work so he could get a nice dinner set for Caroline - so the family could eat from crockery plates instead of old tin ones. So simple. A basic need. And it made the family happy. Who today would even appreciate that sort of thing?

O.K. -so it was a story. But here's what it made me think of - why can't people just be content with things? Why is there this great push to always update and have the best of everything to the extent where people are willing to go into debt up to the eyeballs to make it happen? What's it for? Who's it for? I'm not talking about the Ingalls family updating from tin to crockery -I'm talking about people having to have the latest telly even when there's nothing wrong with the one they have.

Maybe it's one of the reasons why marriages used to last. People had next to nothing and so chased each other instead of chasing after possessions . Oh, you know what I mean - the focus was where it should be -on the other person. Not on all the things that don't really matter.

Of course the exception to this is DVDs....now gotta get hold of that Nellie Olsen episode.... .

Mood - tired as buggery
Music - young at heart -frank sinatra
