I spotted Mike across the stage and headed in his direction. My heart was racing, and my stomach was tied up in a huge knot.
Um . . . Uh . . . Hey, Mike?”
He turned, saw me, and smiled. Hey, darlin’, how ya doing?”
Uh, well, good . . . I guess.” I was now having trouble looking him in the eye.
Something on your mind, Missy?”
And then, out it came. Is it true? Are you really going to make me go blind next season?” I waited for what seemed forever for my answer.
Yes, Missy, you will be going blind next season.”
My heart sank. I felt sick. The tears sprung up and out before I even had time to digest this news. I couldn’t hold them back. I madly tried to think of something, anything else, so I would stop crying and not humiliate myself any further.
Just about the time I almost really lost it, Mike said, Don’t worry, Missy. It’s going to be great. You’ll see.” He gave me a big hug.
R-r-really?” I sobbed. You’re not going to write me out?”
Of course not,” he said. . . .You have a great future ahead.”
I knew he wasn’t just saying it to make me feel better; he wasn’t that kind of guy. He went on to explain what would happen to Mary, and the show, and how he knew this would be a great opportunity for me. I trusted Mike and chose to accept the wonderful feeling of relief that had come over me.

it didn't tell enought about life on set. Melissa Anderson fixes this. However, the MAJOR complaint that
I have with Ms. Anderson's book is there is virtually NOTHING about her personal life . .only about
the Little House series. the little bits that she adds here and there, about using Pearl Drops (the memories of
that whitner!) and insights about Michael Landon were great--but only a very small taste!
A combo of both books would have been great. I did enjoy reading
The Way I See It .. but really, it was somewhat robotic. I really would have liked have read more about her
PERSONAL life. .at the time . .life outside and off of the set .. as basically all she mentions is
that she dated her future husband--it was great--they were married--had two great kids--raised them--the kids have
thus far turned out great and and everything is perfect. It is though, actually nice to see a former child star that
makes life turn out well with no drugs, issues or turnoil!!!
