don't forget the E!

Anne of Green Gables turns 100 this month! This article by Margaret Atwood (another one of my favorites) brought back so many of the things I loved about Anne Shirley and her grand entry to Avonlea. I got into the PBS series from the moment it first aired--I'm sure due to my parents' encouragement. Any other Anne-with-an-e's out there know that gives you an automatic kinship--makes you kindred souls, if you will. Then of course I read the book, watch, read, repeat. Atwood is right--the adult Anne in the following books isn't the same, nor is Avonlea, but the original title is enough to satisfy.

Thanks for introducing yourself! i most likely met you at the wedding, then. My husband and i were there with a 6-month-old. Pretty sure we were the only ones with a baby. We also came to the brunch thing, too.

Anyway, just going by your top post, you are great. (You have an entire entry about AoGG.) Also, you are great for being related to the new Mrs. Keller. (She was my big in SAI.) So i will look forward to reading more of yours!
