1963 Ken Paper Doll

1963 Whitman #1976:59 (back cover)

1963 Ken

Mattel copyrighted these images in 1962, but the Whitman folder was dated 1963.

Go here for the Barbie from this set.

Finishing What We Start

Lynette, Galveston beach

My friend, Lynette, has a new post (titled Tiddlywinks) up on her blog lynetteleitch which is really worth reading and heeding.

The photo is one I took of her when Joe and I spent a few days in Galveston with her and Mark, oh … about 6 years ago. She was in motion, so her arm is a bit blurry, but I like this one because it seems to capture a moment of joy.

A true Englishwoman – a bit of rain can’t keep her down!
