Jeffy's had a 'doll' for a while now that was just his favorite! He bought it a year or two ago, with his birthday money. We were in Target, and he spotted this sort of . . Ken Doll, surfer dude . . . who had been appropriately christened 'Cali-Guy' by whatever brilliant analyst comes up with this stuff over at Mattel. . .
Unfortunately, the other day, in the rush of confusion that is the daily fight over our current ONE BATHROOM, one of the boys sorta unintentionally stepped on . . poor Cali-Guy, and inadvertently snapped off his head.
You know, it's always sad when someone close passes on. . . kicks the bucket, as it were. . . But it's an especially emotional experience when it's a long time friend, with whom we have co-existed for many months. . . Half of our young life, if we happen to be 5 years old. . . still just shy of Kindergarten. . . We have many fond memories of pleasant hours, swimming in the bathtub. . .
So I'd like to remember poor Cali-Guy, (sigh) Jeffy's favorite toy, and loyal companion. . . with whom we shared many a joyful splash. . . He will be remembered . . . locally, fondly, and with great . . fond . . ness. . .
Being overcome with emotion, I have asked Charlie to help me out here. . .
He informed me that he . .
"Sorry. Can't help ya. ." He had signed off. "I don't help people who don't like low-rider trucks. . ." : P
Hee hee hee hee hee!
Poor Cali-Guy. . .
