Do you remember my obsession with this ...
You know ... Scottish, castle, quirky and lovable characters ... cute laird.
My kinda show. Well I'm up to season 5 now.
And then I got sidetracked a little.
With this ...
... Irish, quaint village, quirky and lovable characters ... cute priest.
How come I didn't know about these shows when they were actually on television? I'm just so glad I found them now. I'm really enjoying them.
I actually purchased the DVDs of Monarch of the Glen. But I went a different route with Ballykissangel.
I went here ...
My local public library. About a mile from my house.
I can check out Ballykissangel ... for FREE!
Not only that, I have checked out tons of movies. Yeah, all FREE!
Well, except when I'm a day or two late returning them and have to pay the 25 cents a day fine. But it's still better than renting or buying.
And they have pretty much everything I've been looking for. If it's not at my local branch I can request it. I really haven't had to wait more than a week or two to get most of the DVDs I want. I keep a running list of titles I'm interested in and I add a few more to my queue every week. And then I get a phone call when they arrive at my local branch. I've done this for several years with books. As homeschoolers we're always requesting various books to supplement our studies. I guess it just didn't occur to me to put DVDs on hold. I'm sure glad I figured it out!
It's been fabulous!
In my next post I'll tell you about a great mini-series I stumbled across.
So stay tuned ...
