Hi,..an afterthought with my Oregon trip.......
I never realized how much Dad values his Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy stuffed dolls on the wooden swing. For a couple of mornings, I found them on the floor. What had happened.... is that Dad sometimes is up at night and walks here or there and doesn't realize that he's knocked Ann and Andy onto the floor. Since I was concerned about him falling over them while he's checking the thermostat or wandering around, I moved Ann and Andy to a different end table in the living room. Dad was still in bed when I did this and then I left to go and see Mom. When I returned home, Dad was in the shower. On the refrigerator was a note....""Where is Raggedy Ann and Andy?"" Then, later I found 3 messages on my cell phone asking me where Raggedy Ann and Andy were. (he wasn't sure that the second message was recorded so that is why there were 3 messages).. ......So, I showed him where I moved them and told him why I moved them. He told me that there's an interesting story behind the origin of Raggedy Ann and Andy and that he gave a speech about it. So, for future reference, please take very, very good care of his Raggedy Ann and Andy. He treasures them. I guess I need to look up the origin of Ann and Andy and learn more about them...
