First, thank you to all my email subscribers who are being patient as I continue to try to get help from the service that actually delivers the emails.
I am back in town from a week in Indiana visiting Imogene and some other relatives. More on that visit on Wednesday!
I am overdue in telling you the answers to the questions about the doll and the record album from my little impromptu history quiz.
Everyone got the doll right!
Yes, it was Chatty Cathy. 🙂
However, the album stumped everyone.
Maybe we were the only family who owned this little gem?
I remember it well. And I personally never thought Puff was about anything except a Dragon!
The album “quiz” made me ask PhilBillPaul to dig out a few albums from our extensive combined collection we still have in the basement.
The Puff the Magic Dragon album and Chatty Cathy doll were a few years before we started listening to really cool music and being boy-crazy.
These were my boyfriends.
These were Julie’s boyfriends.
We’ve always had different tastes in music, boys, clothes, hobbies, etc.
I figured this was as good a time as any to tell Julie (my older sister) that I’ve had her albums for all these years.
Did I mention they got wet in our basement? Sorry. Out of my control. I would send them to you but they are really in no condition to be mailed or played. Like you have a record player anyway?
Side note: I usually read each post out loud to PhilBillPaul to make sure it makes sense. He just asked me if I had contacted our boyfriends to be sure they knew I was posting their pictures. He was totally serious. I’m still laughing.
I said “I’m pretty sure Julie hasn’t kept in touch with Donny Osmond or Tony DeFranco and no, I haven’t actually talked to Bobby Sherman or David Cassidy in YEARS. ”
Okay, maybe never.
