Meet The Dollies - A Little Tact and Kindness Goes A Long Way!

The "dollies" thought you might enjoy meeting some of them and learning a little bit about them. Of course, this was their way to get an article written about each of them in their new "The Dollie Storage Room" blog.

Given there are 1,796 of them that would mean 1,796 articles which I refused to do. I'd be doing nothing but writing stories about them for years.

They, of course, couldn't understand that. They said, "After all, we have our own "The Dollie Storage Room" blog now. It should contain the stories we want."

To that I replied; "That's true, but I'm the one doing the writing. Whenever one of your develops the ability to do that then you can have the final say in what is written for your blog!"

Helena decided to step in at this point and said, "Okay, Linda! You don't have to be so snippy about it! You don't have to point out the "dollies" obvious flaws. They do try so hard to mimic you and be human. A little tact and kindness goes a long way."

So, I thought about that and, of course, she was right. I apologized to the "dollies" for being snippy and said we'd work something out. I told them we'd start with some of the more familiar names and faces from our "The Dollie Storage Room" stories so far and then go from there.

I decided to begin with one of the sweetest, kindest, and happiest of dolls - "Patience Is A Virtue."

So, I'd like you to meet "Patience - Is a Virtue." Patience is a primitive bunny and is so happy-go-lucky that she has a hard time controlling herself.

She just hops from here to there without a care in the world. Hop, hop, hop! Down the lane she goes. Hop, hop, hop! La dee da! La dee da!

If you ask her, "Patience, where are you going?" she replies, "Just anywhere!" Hop, hop, hop!

If you ask, "Why are you going?" she just replies, "To make everyone happy!" Hop, hop, hop!

If you respond, "That's impossible!" she just smiles and replies, "I have all the time in the world." Hop, hop, hop!

Down the lane she goes. Hop, hop, hop! La dee da! La dee da!

Now why can't I be more like that. Not a care in the world. La-dee-dah! Oh, the life of a doll.
