Do you remember your special childhood friend? I do. Her name was Jackie and we had great times with weekend sleep-overs. She lived across town but came on weekends to visit her grandparents and we were treated like princesses as her grandparents were pretty old. At least much older than my parents who were then in their 30's! We had wonderful fun times acting out the antics of our heros "Betty and Veronica" in the newest comics.
And whoa nellie did ya ever play "Doctor" with someone? C'mon, I promise not to tell!
Oh yes I remember like it was yesterday hauling my favorite dolls outside to a nicely laid pallet with my little scrub pot, rub board and soapy water to first bathe the dolls then wash their clothes. To this day, laundry and ironing delight me!
And what little girl in the 40's and 50's did not have several really good jump ropes? Do kids still jump rope? They should. Have you read the latest reports on childhood obesity? I say buy them jump ropes. We still ate Twinkies and Moon Pies but got so much exercise that the calories never stayed on our thighs.
Ohhhhhhhhhhhh swoon, swoon. I never had one of these. Could this be a Jumeau? What a lucky little girl.
And who out there remembers her first Kiss? I don't know how many I had before the age of 12, but I sure remember that one. His name was Billy Sherrill. My Momma and Daddy took us to the movies once and my daddy made fun of him because he said he had B.O. What the heck was that and who cared. He smelled wonderful to me!
And did you ever see anything sweeter than this? Yes of course you have. She reminds me of our daughters and grand-daughters. We're not one bit biased, we just all happen to know we have the most beautiful and smartest little gals!!!
