LOL. Me either to Miles! When I brought up the Melendy books last,
Cara was just in the middle of a reread. We were talking about
Oliver, and how sweet he was, and I said that I *really* want to find
Rush. I'm sure he's out there somewhere, just the right age now, and
wouldn't you have a wonderful set of in-laws? I think even Mona -
nobody's favourite here - would be a great s-i-l. It cracked me up
to see your post so soon after discussing this at home!
I'm pretty partial to Tom and Mitt also, but far too chicken to
consider it! (Anyway, I haven't the right hair for Tom.)
Christopher in _Perilous Gard_ ditto. Joe Willard's interesting,
though. Gilbert from the Anne books too. Although seeing a huge
number of women on a L.M Montgomery site describe themselves as
"married to their own Gilbert" kind of turned my stomach. :)
I'm wondering if any guys played this game in your class?
