When we jump from Summer directly into colder, Winter weather, I feel like Mother Nature is not playing fair. I mean, my backyard maple trees are all still verdant green-- not a touch of orange or red to be seen. Please let there be some Autumn before too many snowflakes appear.

14C feels like 13C humidity is now 43% so ... AUTUMN is here and summa is OVER ... I don't think we will get much Indian Summer this year. Since its 2020 and been a crazy year with the apocalyps known as Covid 19 ... we will go from autumn/fall to a SNOWY hellish winter in about 3 weeks.


That's my prediction .... it's probably untrue but hey. It's all possible the way things have been going this year.

My sister's birthday is in the middle of November .-- and I noticed over the years that it often snowed on November 19 -- a harbinger to early Winter. But I am not ready to accept Winter weather in September.

It's a little chilly for me, indoors -- so I'm wearing my handy-dandy fuchsia hoodie over top of my tie-dyed (sleeveless) cotton sun dress.

Officially the Autumn Equinox,🍁 so much cold should not be in the forecast.

And here's my take on the bunny-sweater guy as the PALE BLUE BUNNY. It's a wonder what hue/saturation/contrast and an illusion filter can do!

Oh yes ... Midge with her reddish-blonde hair and smirky mouth and wonky eyes .... she really thought KEN would be her one and only. Little did she know Ken was destined to be Barbie's one and only. And then there was ALLAN ....we all knew Allan was gay or he had something brewing with Skipper.



Actually .... I think Allan might have had a sex change ... he has that kind of womanly face. Not saying having a sex change is a bad thing ... just my crazy over coffee'd brain looking at Allan's pics and going wild here in my mind.







Skipper from the 60's has some bad bangs going on there .... she is suffering COVID hair.

23C feels like 28C ... hooooooooomidity is 78% and its sort of overcast right now. The weather network who lies to us on the regular is predicting some rain this afternoon. I am not gonna hold my breath for that prediction.

It was nice here yesterday afternoon, so nice I had to turn ceiling fans on to deal with a slight hoooooomidity issue in the house as I didn't think cranking on the A/C was needed. It got hot here it felt like Indian Summer ... one day of Indian Summa is better then none I suppose.



Okay .... off to do some work of some sort.

Growing up, my mother did not give me and my older sister REAL Barbie dolls, but cheaper knock-offs as Christmas presents. At the time when Ken had "real rooted hair," we were gifted Bob -- with molded plastic head/hair. Similar, but not as well-crafted, as the Allan doll you have posted. (Oh! The memories!)

My older sisters had Barbie with Ken, Midge, Allan and Skipper ... (the originals) and my 2nd older sister had the Barbie Fashion Store. It was quite cool because it was a heavy duty plastic brief case that you put on a table or floor standing up and you undid the side catches and opened it to reveal an entire fashion boutique. Full length mirrors and furniture, a display stage to model dresses from and little hangers that hung up the many "FABULOUS" frou frou dresses Bab's and friends could buy. Of course this all came with matching high heel shoes/boots and purses or handbags hats and gloves and necklaces and loads of other crap to accessorize.



It had a working cash register and little telephone and was sooooooooo ostentatious.



I would often plan sneak attacks on the salon with GI Joe and various army and Tonka trucks and steal as much as I could carry away while my sister and her friends would scream in mock terror they were being attacked and murdered.


I never did dress up GI Joe in any of the dresses or things ... that would just be WRONG.


This is my story and I'm sticking to it.

17C feels like 17C ... hoooooooooooooooooomidity is 88% .... I hate soggy muggy weather in the morning. I DO.


It's suppose to be sunny and a nice day today so I'm going to the beach .... ALONE. To sit and stare at the water and feel the wind on my face and the sand on my toes & footsies .... probably will feel the sand in my eyes and the wind up my butt. Either way I will wander around by myself and enjoy a day of nature.

I had a great story to go with this image, but Talk Parrots Forums was being uncooperative and wouldn't let me post because I got timed out in a way that was unproductive. So, some day I might tell this fascinating HOT CAR story with Malibu Barbie, papier mache, and Tinker Toys -- when I feel more energetic.



Until then, my indoor humidity is at a satisfying 38, and the temperature indoors is neither too hot or too cold for me. Bye!

20C feels like 21C ... hoooooooooomidity at 78% .... what is this new crap? The morning dewy stuff just has to stop .... I thought we were suppose to have some rain or something with all this hooooomidity but its not the case. We are just having a boat load of hoooomidity for poops and giggles. Stoopid covid year of crap .... I'm so sick of it all.



It's dull cloudy and overcast but rain isn't predicted ... we might get some sun later in the afternoon ... yay? YAY ... I'm trying to be enthusiastic.

I wanna hear about yer MB Car story ... that car was amazing.


I will now share with you the Malibu Bab's Camper swimming pool and condo party I was allowed to experience while child minding some little nieces .... they insisted I get to see all the delights of their Barbie world and man we had crappy toys with home made furniture and garbage compared to the newer Barbie stuff.

Barbie's 3 floor condo had a damn single elevator for her use. I would have expected a spiral staircase but NOOOOOOO ... Barbie had to have an elevator.



It was still pretty awesome stuff for little girls to enjoy.















Barbie had a lot of moochie friends who were trying to steal her clothes and jewellery while she was playing in her elevator.
