Great Taste in Men

Went hiking yesterday with L & O. L is Chinese but came to the states via a boat from Vietnam as her family fled there first from China and then had to flee Vietnam for here. Her grandmother is 92 years old and doesn't speak English.

L had brought a new boyfriend home and she asked her grandma what she thought of him. Grandma told L she liked the old one better. When L asked grandma why, grandma said it was because the old boyfriend looked like Mr. Rogers, a man she found especially fetching.

She also loved Michael Landon, and that love was born by watching him as Pa Ingalls on Little House on the Prairie. "He's a good man," she told L. "A fine man."

Fine, indeed.
