So, last spring my husband and I were coming home from St Paul, and we always
hop off the road and get into Hudson. (That's another story).
Anyway, there is a fun antique spot there and we spotted this old doll.
I grabbed it quickly thinking it could be something of shabby value.
It was at the counter when I realized the arms were gone, part of the nose was missing and
it had a hole in it's head!
Straw was coming out of the leg joints, and basically it was starting to gross me out.
I decided the little horror would have to go back on the shelf.
Then my husband pointed to something next to the counter.
Old crutches that had been for a child.
I got a case of the giggles.
The owner of this place never remembers me because I don't come that often, but when I
do I buy, buy and buy and I know she's impressed and curious about what I'm taking.
Anyhoo... why I got church giggles I don't know. I couldn't stop.
I really felt as though I were irritating her greatly when she chimed in
" There's no point in buying that poor baby crutches, she doesn't have any arms!".
Then she cracked herself up!
Love to laugh like that... makes the world all better again.
So while I've kept the poor thing in the back room, how perfectly creepy is she in the Halloween
I bet I know exactly what you're thinking at this point,
"She shoulda bought those crutches..."
Love you guys,
