B L D No. 18






















































My absolute favourite toy was a doll that had long brown curly hair. She was about 16 inches tall and she had a brown cow-girl outfit on. She came complete with cow-girl boots, hat, and fringes on her blouse. Get this; she also came with a pair of pajamas.

As I am writing this, I can see her as clearly as the Christmas day I got her. I was in love when I got that doll.

My favorite present although at the time I hated it would be the plaid maxi coat that came with the matching plaid pants?! I was quite a sight! I wanted the maxi coat all my friends had, but Dad who at that time I'm sure did all the Christmas shopping would have none of it and had to get me the most expensive one he could find ... aww, how sweet was he?

Oh and my Mrs. Beasley doll would be a close second.

Renee, my favorite present of all time that will last a lifetime was a pair of red pajamas from my dad Joe. We couldn't afford much in those days and when he came home and said, "here mijita (little daughter),this is for you." I was just so overwhelmed and just so excited when I opened the bag and saw red pj's. Wow, I have never forgot that feel, nor will I ever. I of course don't have the pj's, but I do have all the robes he gave me as an adult. Thx for bringing memories. I miss my dad. Take care and have a great day Renee. TaTa.

Your sweet doll sounds like the one from Toy Story 2 :)
