Good afternoon on this beautiful Monday here in South Eastern Georgia!! I am off to work at Curves soon so wanted to try to get a post in for this beautiful day!!
First of all I want to let the world know that those dolls that used to lay around my house...mostly unclothed and made better than me...well that is BARBIE and she is now 50 years old!! Finally..but her figure is the same. The picture at the top of my blog shows what one artist thinks that Barbie would look like at her now current age of 50!! Still looks good if you ask me and I suppose still has that skinny figure too!!
I used to see those dolls laying around on our floors after Julie and Becky were finished playing with them...I always tried to keep them clothed but seems like little girls like undressing them and forgetting to put their clothes back on again!! Oh well..those were the days.
She was invented in 1959 and if you do not know her real name is Barbara Millicent Roberts...In fact this month in 1959...I would imagine that most of your get the AARP magazine that i found this article in...I just thought it was fun to read about. She met Ken Carson in 1961 and they started dating (about the same year I met Mike)....She became an astronaut barbie, a nurse barbie, gold medal barbie; multiracial barbie, teen talk barbie, President Barbie, handicapped barbie, and many others...Also in 2004 she and Ken break up after a 43 year relationship!! How sad is that!! She is the highest earning doll with $1.2 billion in annual revenue!! Wow!! Guess I should have been thinner!! ha!!
I was so upset to hear about the pastor being shot and killed in Maryville, Illinois. That was so sad and so unbelievable. Although I am afraid that we are going to hear about more of this happening. Please pray for that church and that pastor's family which now has no father!!
I have an appt in the morning to go see my orthopedist about this right knee of mine..It is just very very painful and living up these 14 steps does not help at all..Plus I cannot exercise anymore and that makes me very upset..i am very limited on what i can do. I do not go down those steps except when I JUST HAVE TOO!!
My mother goes this afternoon to her orthopedist. i am so hoping that they can give her something to get her out of pain even if that means an operation..Pain is just not fun at all...Sometimes I feel like I have had my share but probably not!!
Off to work soon...take care...I really despise this time change...Not good at losing sleep!!
Thought for the day:
"The irony of life is that, by the time
You're old enough to know your way
Around, you're not going anywhere"
