There are many things about the present generation that make me sad. To think that the youth today will never spend hours listening to the radio, just to record the perfect songs for a mix tape. To not know to clap twice after someone says, “Down at Fraggle Rock.” Or not have nightmares narrated by the voice of the speak-and-spell. Hahahah. But it makes me sad that children today do not know the Shirley Temple who changed the world during the 1930's.
I spent countless hours as a child mesmerized by her films. I dreamt of having amazing curly hair and tap-dancing my way through life.
I got this Shirley Temple doll when I was in elementry school, and we spent hours watching Bright Eyes, Little Miss Marker, and Captain January together.
I got this Little Miss Marker Doll a few years later. These dolls held so much magic for me.
I think I will take some time this weekend to have an oldie but good marathon. Breakfast at Tiffanys, My Fair Lady, Jane Eyre, and Shriley Temple will be on the list. Sounds like a good plan to me : )
