This was my beloved childhood doll. I saved her in my old "hope chest". When I gave the hope chest away lately I cleaned it out... wedding dress, veil, several other "hopeless" things and my doll. Alas, she was also hopeless. She seems to have been made of some kind of rubber that deteriorated. Her head was made of something else and and is still alive...she still opens and closes her eyes.
One cute little hand is also O.K. but looks like the fingers are about to fall off.
Her beautiful velvet dress is in pretty good shape.
It looks like the same dress in this blurry old photo, but on a different doll.
In the background is my sister, Nancy's Donald Duck bank. She still has it.
Somewhere there's a picture of her with her much loved bank but, try as I might, I couldn't find it.
And in the near background I think that's a hitching post...could it be? Maybe just a water spigot.
And in the far background is an old car that I'm sure one of you "old car buffs" could identify.
It wouldn't be the beach without the Goodyear Blimp.
I stopped to talk to this nicely attired Del Mar Bag Lady and dog.
Not sure how much of her story to believe. I couldn't quite follow it, but she obviously manages to take good care of her cute little dog. I gave her a little money which I hope will help a little. It will probably only buy a little dog food.
Nancy managed to get her work done every day.
Brother, Bob came for Christmas
Nancy and Bob toast Christmas. Nancy made a wonderful Christmas dinner. Sounds like Nancy did all the work, but I cleaned up. I also had to stay home 2 days to work. So we shared the pain...and the fun.
