Last week Rufus and Chaka Khan told us something good. This week as I was unpacking (still!!) I looked through an old photo album and saw a photo of my sister when she was around seven holding her beloved Cabbage Patch doll. She won the doll during a church raffle and she took that darn thing with her everywhere.
I remember when these dolls first burst on the scene in 1983. All hell broke loose. People were going nuts trying to track them down for the holidays. I didn't get it. I thought the dolls were so ugly but then I met my sister's doll and I understood.
Of course in the 80s there was also a dance called the Cabbage Patch. Whenever I heard old school hip-hop I want to bust out the moves.
I don't own a scanner so no photo of little sis but I did find this commercial. Ha. Have a great weekend.
