This morning the Siren retweeted a comment from Girl of the Plains about Tweets by Melissa Gilbert and Alison Arngrim of TV's LITTLE HOUSE.
I was a bit curious and took a peek at Melissa Gilbert's page, which soon put me on a rabbit trail to Mary McDonough of THE WALTONS, where I learned two bits of news that made this WALTONS fan happy.
First, Mary has a book coming out next month, LESSONS FROM THE MOUNTAIN: WHAT I LEARNED FROM ERIN WALTON.
Second, there's a new special airing April 17th on the Inspiration Network, A WALTONS FAMILY REUNION. (I've got to check and see if I get this channel...) On the special Mary hosts a discussion with her TV parents, Michael Learned and Ralph Waite, and her TV siblings in which they "reminisce about the series, its impact on American culture and family life, and what they’ve been up to since the series ended its original run in 1981."
