Saving Jessie

Today I saved Jessie the Cowgirl from a heartless guttersnipe at the flea market and brought her home to meet Babyzilla.

Jessie was overjoyed to ride home in our 1963 Belair, having the backseat all to herself.

Babyzilla loved her right away, and held her (away from her soda) and gave her a kiss.

I think this might be the start of a nice little friendship. Yippee Yi Ay. hooray.

My daughter had Jessie! (They're both red heads. She identified.)
I'm glad you rescued her. She needs a friend.

Toy Story is such a great movie and there is no reason for a Jessie doll to not have a loving home! Great work to save it from an untimely ending. Great rescue!

I'm wondering how sites get added to your blogroll? I have recently started a site that I think would be a beneficial add to your blogroll.

Thanks!

Glamour Bbey: Welcome. I genuinely liked visiting your blog. I can see by the amount of followers, that others like it too.

John: Thanks for the validation on the rescue. I went over to your page, it's all posts on playhouse kits. Am I missing something? I was wondering if you have a different blog where you actually write as well as you did in my comment section. If you do, please let me know and I will be more than happy to add you to my blog roll.
