Is this photo creepy?
At 57 I am wearing a ponytail and playing with dolls! That's like a Hitchcock movie. However, it's not quite as creepy as the time I watched a man, stop in the plaza in front of The Alamo and pull a Barbie out of a briefcase. He seemed dead serious as he photographed her in front of the Texas landmark.
But I have a good excuse. I'm trying to reach my goal of celebrating the 1950's in 57 ways... before April 9! And Barbie was born in 1959, so why not have a little fun. Actually my ponytailed Barbie disappeared over the years, but I was able to find the old suitcase holding my (less glam) Midge Doll. She doesn't have Barbie's sexy pout, but she fits Barbie's swimsuit just fine. I'm glad to say I am also the keeper of my sister's Ken Doll. He may be losing his felt hair, but he still looks fine in his red trunks, terrycloth coverup and green swim flippers!
Mom, thanks for never throwing anything away. I had a mighty fun time!
57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014
I don't remember the 1950's, since they ended when I was 2. But since I turned 57 today and this is my BYB (Birth Year Birthday) I'm going to just appreciate the flavor of 1957! My goal is to celebrate in at least 57 simple ways throughout the year! I will dabble in the fashion, the foods, the music and the culture of those times...just for the fun of it!
