So this past week was the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, OH, and next week is the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, PA PLUS the United Federation of Doll Clubs (UFDC) Convention in Washington, D.C. We are definitely having conventions…
I got to watch the RNC on TV, but I will only see a little bit of the DNC because this coming week when the Dems are in Philadelphia, I’ll be with my Human Bean and Cousin Smidge in D.C., where we three will be dolling our hearts out.
The UFDC’s theme is “Kindred Spirits,” taken from the book, Anne of Green Gables. And in a way, all three conventions should be filled with Kindred Spirits, though frankly, the RNC didn’t seem to be when they boo’d one of their own invited speakers who they knew wouldn’t endorse. Seems like a double standard – or a major set-up. My Bean says I can’t write any more about that.
She’s right. We dollies (and our Bean) are not politically involved (other than there are rules and regulations for doll collectors, just as there are for political convention folks). But truthfully, our plan is to forget about the worldly issues for a time and indulge in retail and visual doll therapy.
Everyone needs some time away from the stresses of reality, and that’s what we plan to be doing for the next week. So while there is a post this week, letting you know what we will be up to, I will not be posting next week.
I will leave you a little marker before I leave, though, a little sign to let you know I haven’t forgotten you, along with directions to where you can find daily postings on Facebook during the week, assuming you want to keep up with our whatnots and whereabouts.
So check in on Monday, July 25th for that…and then…. Well, you’ll see, maybe.
Meanwhile, have a GREAT week, America. Peace & Love.
