Life is like a box of chocolates....


...and also like a bag of old dolls from a thrift shop....you never know what you might get.

These appear to be a 1960's Barbie "Julie" as Dihann Carroll doll head (by Mattell) on a 1970's World of Love body by Hasbro

Lee Majors as the Bionic Man, c. 1975 (That would be as old as Robb, btw) in his original pants....too bad his legs fell off when I took off his pants....like a weird dream sequence.....

And Ideal's 1966 Giggles Toddler doll, who's head promptly fell off when I got her home (Robb said, from all the spinning around with Satan inside) and who does not originally have a bent arm, so this must be a transplant.

Yeah, weird.

It really was more of a nanananananananana sound.

I loved the Bionic Man. I had one of those. Still can piture the slow motion and the sound.

I remember wanting a black baby soooo much..and NO way could a "white" girl have a black baby. It just wasnt done. They were FEW and far between also.

Guess I always voted for the underdog.

erkvedt: the feeling of frustration felt by D over her not getting a black baby doll. You rocked even then.

Thanks for commenting, Faz! I seem to recall the Bionic woman more than the Bionic man...Thought I saw her on an orthopedic bed infomercial and she didn't look so very bionic anymore....
