Are you a convenience store type person, or a do-it-yourselfer?

I’ve always had fun making things from scratch. For many years after I got married I enjoyed making bread and even my own sausage. I even bought casing and stuffed it, with the help of my fantastic Kitchen-Aid mixer attachments. Until I realized that we don’t like link sausage and I was always cutting the casing off afterward and cooking the sausage like you would ground beef. Skipping that step saved me some time!

While I haven’t made either of these things for a while, reading Loving the Mountain Man brought back fun memories. . .

Ledger was such a mountain man. It was so cool how he loved to do everything himself; to live off the land. Oh, and he was protective as well. I enjoyed picturing him making his videos – somehow the contrast between the he-man persona and the techie camera/video editor was funny to me. He could hunt and fish and make homemade fruit rolls, but he couldn’t braid his daughter’s hair. Or provide the woman’s touch that she needed. Being the loner that he was, he also didn’t really know how to be in a relationship.

Reading Loving the Mountain Man made me think back on favorite camping trips. It also reminded me of the (completely irrational) fear I had that my parents might divorce when I was younger. (It wasn’t that they fought or anything like that. I think it was the shock of finding out that some parents actually did that.) The story was a sweet, emotional journey. It was just the right length for the story, not too short and not too drawn out and overly dramatic.

Is this not the sweetest line?
