I LOVE MY DOLLS and CAROL
by Gussyboy1

Okay,get your kleenex out because this will bring tears to your eyes. For once on this forum I will be very serious for a short while.
Yes, I love dolls! I always have loved my dolls. Among my favorites is my Mary Englebreit doll "Sophia". I do love Sophia! What person doesn't LOVE Mary Englebreit dolls! Sophia doll gets to come out when I have tea parties with my grandchildren or when I want to decorate with some of my dolls, like at Christmas time. Yes, I love Sophia, but I love my best friend Carol so much more!
You see. Carol is a nurse friend of mine undergoing chemotherapy for the third time in three years for colon cancer. Carol has had two surgeries, a colon resection when the cancer was discovered three years ago. That was followed by chemotherapy. Then a year later the cancer had returned to a new spot-her lung. She underwent yet another surgery to have a lobe of her lung removed followed by chemotherapy. A few months ago a scan showed the cancer has returned again. Carol is undergoing chemo now for the third time.
Despite all the chemotherapy, Carol has continued to work from home on a children's hospital answer line. But now, she is feeling the weakness and nausea from the chemo and has almost used up all her sick days. When you cannot work ,and there are no more sick days, you don't get paid. It's a sad reality that occurs way too often with a serious illness.
I have decided to place my beloved "Sophia" Mary Englebreit doll, two Mary Englebreit framed prints, a Mary Englebreit book, and several other Mary Englebreit items on eBay in an attempt to raise money for my friend, Carol. I want Carol to focus ALL her energy on fighting this cancer--on healing.
Our local newspaper did an article a few weeks ago on the up-and- coming eBay auction. I am waiting placing the items on eBay until next week so that another local newspaper can run an article in hopes that the infomation will reach more people. My hope ,also,is that the goodness in people will SHINE!
Carol has cared for thousands of patients over the years. Now it's her turn to feel that caring spirit! Thus, next week under seller: gussyboy1 on eBay under Mary Englebreit you will find "Sophia" and other Mary Englebreit items for sale. Please bid and bid often! Yes, I love dolls! I'm crazy about dolls and my doll-of-a-friend, Carol!

BTW, you can see Sophia in this picture along with the other items that will be on eBay sometime this week.
THANKS!




I only have one of the Classic American Doll stamps. I used all the others back in 1997 when they came out with the notecards. Here it is in the upper left corner of the notecard. It's entitled "Alabama Baby"/Martha Chase dolls.

Ahhhh, ok. I'm not as long winded as some of us (just joking Gussy...LOL) But here goes. Let's see, there is only one doll in my life that I would say I love more then anything in the world, even life itself. That dolls name is Gina, and I owe her my life. She came into my life about 5 years ago, and has been here ever since and I hope will remain for the rest of my time on this planet. She always brings a smile to my face when I am down in the dumps, and a shoulder to cry upon when I am sad. She is the best treasure I have ever found and will ever find. Now I know most will think of doll figures, but being a male the only "Doll" in my life is my Fiance.

Wow Gussy How can I beat that! Very touching story. I'm afraid I never owned a doll when I was little (not that I remember anyway). Not because I did not absolutely love them. I was the eldest of 8 children and don't remember having many toys. I spent most of my time looking after my brothers and sisters and remembered that we played outside a lot playing baseball, skating, sledding, going on adventures.

From the day my daughter was born I bought her dolls I can't post a picture because she has them. But I think my favorite of her's is the Ann of Green Gables doll because we used to read the books together. We both loved Ann and Lucy Maude's Stories of her.

I would like to add an apology here to Gussyboy1. I want to apologize for the comment at the first of my post about being long winded. I just scanned your post Gussy before I made that comment and didn't read the whole thing until just now. I do apologize whole heartedly and I hope and pray that you are able to raise quite abit to help your friend out. This world would be a better place with more people like you in it, you truly are a Doll.

Thanks so much Cimmarron! No apology needed. It's a contest and perhaps I should have done something different about my dolls, but it was so ironic that this contest came along just when I'm saying good-bye to Sophia doll for a great cause. We opened an account-the Carol Miller Cancer- fund at a local bank yesterday. The teller cried as she filled out the paperwork for the fund. She said, "What a wonderful friend"--meaning me. I turned and said "Yes, Carol is WONDERFUL!"
