This "My Buddy" Doll was found in a pile of junk, in an abandoned house that my aunt was cleaning out. He was quite dirty, and his hair snarled and in every which way direction.
I cleaned him up, combed his hair, and washed his clothes, a striped shirt and bib pants.
I went to the Goodwill and bought the jacket, baseball hat, and shoes.
The hat has "Jakie" written in the rim, so Rhia, my granddaughter, named him Jakie.
For the past four years, he has sat on my sofa.
