After a stressy day, there’s nothing like watching “Little House on the Prairie.”
Naturally, somebody dies in the episode — somebody ALWAYS died — this time it was the Widow Sanderson, who left three small children. Sad.
Laura is all angsty about the upcoming death of the Widow Sanderson, in her cute little braidy way. She asks Pa how old Sanderson was.
“In her 30s or 40s,” Pa answered.
“Ma’s in her 30s.” Laura replied.
Ma? In her 30s? Nah.
That episode was filmed in 1975. Karen Grassle, who played Caroline Ingalls, was born in 1942. Ma was 33 in that episode.
I. Am. The. Same. Age. As. Ma. Ingalls.
