Although I know people didn't live as long and life was hard back then, I have always thought I would have liked to have lived during the Pioneer Days. Maybe Little House on the Prairie helped make me feel that way, but there were lots of movies and books pertaining to the Pioneer Days that make me a feel a yearning to have lived in those days. I'd have had a hard time taking a bath just once a week but just like in the depression era...it seems to me families needed one another...and they knew they needed God too. Even when I studied History in school, those days were always of major interest to me. I don't believe in reincarnaton so I don't think I was a pioneer woman in another life. If there were time machines though I would go back to that time and try that era out for awhile. Did you ever think about living in another era and if so when?
