Barbie Doll Pink

I got tired of my blog template. So, in honor of summer and painting your toenails- here's to Barbie Doll Pink!

Personally, I never had a Barbie doll. I had her younger cousin Francie. Francie unlike Skipper did not have completely flat feet. Francie was able to wear a low heel. Nothing too stiletto, though. After all, that was Barb's area! Francie also had less make up and brown hair. She was more demure, less sexy. A basic B cup kind of babe.

I have wondered on occasion about why I had Francie instead of Barbie. There's probably no real reason. And Francie got to date GI Joe as often as the next girl. She had plenty of swinging clothes to wear and she had more than enough fun! But she wasn't the star that Barbie was!

Oh well, it could have worked out worse- she could have been named Midge!

Back in the day...as the kids say, which is like fingernails on a blackboard to me...I couldn't afford a real Barbie doll, but I had one of those immitation Barbies. And the clothes, oh so classy, were much too expensive to buy. The were maybe $5 or $8 for an outfil.

Nowdays the doll and clothes are made in some other country by people without airconditioning, most likely, and without health benefits, I'd bet. You can get a whole wardrobe of clothes for not much money. The kids often own several Barbies and then they leave them lying around naked.

BTW, how do you get the line "show Original Post" to come up on the ommments page?

P. Softly-

I'm not sure exactly how it works. It's a part of the blogspot canned template.
