Everyone Has Toys
Jack over at Shipslog gave me an idea again. He wrote about big people's toys, such as boats and computers. Childrens's toys, such at dolls and toy trucks. When I was young I didn't have many toys and didn't know the difference. My sister and I made a playhouse with an apple crate for a cabinet and an old car gas tank as a sofa, it worked fine. I do have a memory of my first real doll though. It wasn't made of cloth like a Raggedy Ann. It was made of the clay like stuff that dolls used to be made of. Not sure what it is called. I loved that doll. One day another little girl came to play and she slammed my doll down on the front porch and broke it. I was heartbroken. My mama taped it's wounds. The doll looked ugly but I still played with it. The next time the girl came over she slammed my doll on the cement porch and that "did it in for good". I don't know why the girl was so mean because she lived with her parents and grandparents which three people in their household was working so I'm sure she had more toys then I did. I don't remember ever getting another doll. I'm sure I probably did but it didn't come to a bad end for me to have a memory of it. Now as an adult my favorite toy is my computer and my I-pad. what is yours?
