There I Sat with a Dead Body, Reading, “Are You There God, It’s Me, Margaret”…

(I will sooooo be dating myself in this post…)

I used to play with Dawn dolls when I was a little girl. These were dolls about half the size of Barbie dolls and just as glamorous. I had cases bulging full of these dolls along with all the clothes and accessories ever made to go with them.

One thought on “There I Sat with a Dead Body, Reading, “Are You There God, It’s Me, Margaret”…

  1. Vicky, unbelievable. I can scarcely conceive of you waiting this long to share this incredible story with us. I am right now imagining my lady piano teacher falling over dead right there beside me! I, too, would have just kept on reading if she had died this quietly.
