Full of Surprises

Now, would you just look at this sweet face.

You'd never guess this little doll would wedge her bare leg in between the back slats of a wooden chair at the library, now would you? Nor would you guess that globs of lotion from the librarian might loosen, but not free that little appendage.

And you certainly wouldn't imagine that the nice men from the city public works department would come take a look and have to break out the hack saw and set to work on the chair just to free the dear.

No, you wouldn't think it. But sometimes the days are full of surprises.


  1. Oh dear!!! How awful, but hilarious! So thankful she's okay!

  2. Oh no! I'm glad everything turned out okay though.

  3. STILL am shaking my head over this one.
    Particularly since she's such a peanut!
    Wish I could have seen you both on that table, reading books and waiting for men w/ saws!!!

  4. Oh dear! I'm glad that took the hack saw to the chair and not her leg!

  5. Oh my goodness!!! The poor little thing, but that is just too hilarious!

  6. I'm sure it was traumatic for her, but the re-telling is so funny for us! These are the memories childhood is made of.

  7. holy dukes! that is too funny. glad she's ok. mike stuck his head through the back of a chair when he was little and the chair had to be taken apart to get his head out! can you imagine?

    well. yeah. i guess you can.

  8. oh my! and i thought i've had some bad days.

    you wouldn't believe the stories my sister the librarian tells me, that's just the tip of the iceberg.
