    Since the show was based on the real life memoir of the author, who as a character was Laura, I think the show was limited in what it could portray and still stay linked to those memoirs.

    That's true! I should have thought about that.

    Thanks to both of you for responding.

    My pleasure, tinderbox. I think some folks don't know or don't remember that it came from the author's memoirs.

    So nice to spend time with the mid-wives tonight!
    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    I agree Uncle David, this show is so well written. I thought tonight was just perfect.
