At any moment, she's going to look up and smile.

The last doll from the Neil Collection.

Or how to freak out your kids. 

A page for a site called Sweet and Sour Sassy Pants popped up on my Facebook feed ( I know nothing about this site) I had to share their idea of what to do with your child's dolls once they outgrow them. More like traumatize them.



This has me wondering if they also suggested hanging the bodies from the trees in the backyard. I do like this idea, but then I don't have children.

How's everyone doing today? If you live in the North East of the USA, you have my sympathy. Way too many storms are hitting you.

My friend, Neil, who lives in the San Francisco area sometimes comes across the strangest things, like this...........

A head tied to barbed wire by it's wig. Not really a doll, but it's pretty weird.

I mentioned my friend's wedding yesterday, and realized I hadn't posted the photos. Three days after we got back is when I came down with the flu. Hmmm, maybe that's why I forgot.

My friend Abby married her love, Ben, in her home town of Rome, Georgia. It's north of Atlanta to the west. We drove up Saturday, went to the wedding that evening, left on Sunday and got home in time for the Super Bowl.

 The reception was New Orleans themed. ( can you say Shrimp and Grits?)

 First dance as Mr. and Mrs. Key.

 I was great to hang out with some of the VSU Theatre alumni. Here's my friend Laura-Leigh.

 Me and The Doctor.

 Beautifully simple wedding cake. It was Red Velvet not boring pound cake.

 Are Groom's cakes a thing other places? Yes, it's R2 D2 in a tux. He was lemon with lemon curd.

 Cutting the cake.

 Me and Abby flashing costume shop gang signs. We're "sewing"

 Henry Higgins, AKA Olin Davidson leading the dance line.

 Alumni: Andrew, Kelsey, and Klye.

Me and more alumni: Ryan, Chris and Dennis.

It was a good thing that alumni were there, it can be rather strange to go to a wedding and only know the bride. We had a good time and it was really nice to see some of the "kids" I hadn't seen in a while.
