This is my all time favorite book, because it holds a dear memory for me.♥

I remember being sick when I was about 8 years old. My mom and dad were going shopping for our toiletries at Longs Drug store. This was something they did every 2 weeks and I always went with them. This time, because of the flu I had to stay home.

My mom asked me,” Quieres que te compre algo?” I answered, “Si, mommy, quiero un libro, por favor.” She looked at me with annoyance, saying that she had no idea what book I wanted. You see, my parents could not speak English,  much less read in English, so, I simply told her to buy one with a pretty cover.

I was so anxious for them to get home so I could see the book my mom had chosen for me.

Well, I was the happiest, most delighted, and felt extremely  privileged to own my very first store bought book chosen by my mother. My love of books survives to this very day. And I still like books with pretty covers.♥♥♥

My mission for today is simple; I just want to make you smile. So please enjoy my pictures of my little pets.

My little spaghetti poodles have been with me for a while, but I no longer display them because I don’t have room for them.

These were popular in the 50’s and they come in different colors, pink, blue, white, and even black.

The next one is blue, but my picture did not capture the color.

The little doll above is known as the Buddy Lee doll and this one belongs to my hubby. At one time it did have arms and a complete outfit. He doesn’t remember what happened to these items.  This doll is probably from the early 50’s and many people still collect them. Someday we hope to have it restored. This little man must be at least 58 years old.

Buddy Lee dolls were made by the Lee Co., jeans maker, starting in the 1920’s and used as a promotional item.

Of course everyone is familiar with Barbie. These are, I think, like trading cards. Our youngest daughter collected these in the early 90’s.

And yes, I still have an original Mary Wells record of My Guy, which I used to play over and over again. I loved that song!  This is what we listened to on our record players.
