Already On Television.
I'd been thinking this place would make a good setting for a play or a book or a movie.
It's been done.
Picked up a dvd of the second season of "Northern Exposure" at the library the other day. In the course of watching the show I started recognizing the characters and places and situations around here.
If that ain't that bunch of red-headed kids I don't know what is. And the way everybody is always running around doing something with kayaks and second-and-third-hand trucks, and moose in the streets (or, in our case, eagles and the occasional cougar).
Or maybe these little rural towns are just all like that. When I was watching that show a decade ago, I never realized I'd be moving to it.
