Where have the days gone...

Where have the days gone??? It's been a while since I last blogged, but Dad comes over here to watch the White Sox on the computer most evenings and if I'm busy during the day I don't get online. I stayed up until 3:00 AM this morning trying to catch up on old E-mails and board posts.

The doll show last weekend was very nice. We had a long drive, but it was fun. I was exhausted on Sunday and Monday, but have since bounced back. I did get quite a bit of exercise in this past week. Between my exercise tape and walking three miles at the mall I thought I did pretty well. I hope to walk this evening in the park...if the rain holds off. Anyway, I didn't spend too much at the doll show. I got a AA teenage doll and a little no name doll wearing a Vogue repro Ginny dress. I passed on quite a few things. I saw some vintage Ginny Doll clothes, but I have a whole pile of clothes waiting to be washed and mended. Until I catch up I'm not spending any more. Here are my two doll show dolls (in the middle) surrounded by some of my past purchases.

I enjoy my dolls. They're a wonderful escape and bring me much joy. Of course, I have to put up with a lot of teasing by family members, but that's OK.

This past week Dad fell twice and has seemed so much more confused at times. I'm really concerned about what the future holds. We went out to lunch today to his favorite place, Red Lobster. He loves steamed lobsters and one of the waiters came over and made a big fuss over him. This waiter has waited on him in the past and my father enjoyed the special attention that he gave him. It's funny how something so simple can make a big difference in someone's day. I was grateful to that waiter for the kindness he showed to an old man.


  1. Hi Betty! I nearly said "Hi Ginny!" I love your picture of the new dolls. They are darling. I'm sorry to hear about your Dad falling down. Is he OK now? I will remember to post while in Europe, you bet! I hope I find the internet cafes OK! Take care.

  2. So nice about that waiter!
