What an exciting week!! Doll hospital is full to the brim once again with about 40 patients waiting to get into the O.R. I should have plenty of stories to tell as each one is given a second chance at being loved once again.
Before I get to all the news happening around here, I want to give a great big Doll Hospital Hug to Lynne K. from Gurnee, IL. and Lynn G. from Las Vegas, NV. The donations of dolls and parts were a wonderful surprise and will surely be put to good use here!
Jennifer is out this week, so no new “how to” videos…but we will do more–I promise!
I just have to share a phone call about repair–that has me so totally excited!! I am going to show you lovely readers a picture…..and let me know how many of you know who this is…..now do not scroll down!!
I know…..amazing isn’t it?? This wonderfully sweet voiced lady calls me and asks if I can repair puppets. (You do remember that ventriloquist dummy – Who’s the Dummy? – I struggled with several months ago don’t you?)
So….with a tiny bit of uncertainty—–I ask if it is possible for this lovely lady to email me a picture. Well….Trudy says…just type his name in online and you can see plenty of his pictures! Huh….what??–now I am getting curious. I was speaking to Trudy Sales!!!!…wife of the late Soupy Sales. I could not believe it…..the famous “Pookie” could possibly be in my hands by the end of April!! Needless to say I was star struck.
I remember the old Lunch with Soupy re-runs!! Could it possibly be that Lion we called Pookie?
Yes……it sure was. I can not wait to meet both Trudy and Pookie. We are planning on this happening before summer…so I will certainly ask if I can share perhaps photos and videos of both her and Pookie. I will keep you informed every step of the way so make sure you keep checking this blog. Is this not the greatest job ever?? I mean really– each week holds something special–and this week is one I will not forget.
