GIVE ME THE LIGHTHOUSE!!!!
My thoughts exactly, Ol'Gus! I think being a lighthouse keeper would be a fine life.
I don't really like modern conveniences. They are more like modern distractions. Do we really need an iPod, computers, etc? They had many of the things we have now, only simpler versions.
And the solution to no hair care products? Hats!
In the world of Avonlea, gentlemen were gentlemen, and ladies behaved as ladies. What a wonderful world to live in! Obviously that world is a fiction, even if one were to travel 100 years back, but still, things were much different, and in my opinion, much more preferable back then.
How I'd love to spend a quiet evening next to the crackling fire as Matthew smokes his pipe and Marilla crochets something. No TV, no radio, no infernal internet.
Although, without the internet, how would we all discuss our beloved Avonlea?
