The best laid schemes of dolls and women

Inky and Raven enjoy our desert landscaping.
What is the old saying about "the best laid schemes of mice and men go often awry"?

Well, they certainly went awry this week!

Momma and my friend Inky's mom had spent considerable time setting up a Wednesday play date for us at the Phoenix Zoo. They're visiting their friend Raven's mom in Tucson, but wanted to come north to meet Me!

So what does Momma do? Lands herself in the hospital instead.

Now would you rather have a play date at the zoo, or go to the hospital?

I voted for the zoo but Momma said her vote overruled mine - especially since she was driving.

Sadly we told Inky's mom about our change in plans, but she replied that she would still like to come see us! So Inky, Raven, and their moms arrived at the hospital just as Momma was discharged.

Being sporting women, they said they would follow us back to the house where we visited and posed for photos for a few happy hours. We even surprised each other when I gave Inky a pin with my likeness on it ... and she gave me one with her likeness!

It wasn't a trip to the zoo but it sure was fun!

I hope they come back soon, although they did invite us to visit them in New York City, too.


  1. Sorry to hear that your momma was in the hospital! We hope she's feeling better!

    Too bad about the zoo, too. I'm glad you got to spend some time with your friends anyway.


    1. She is feeling better, but she and the doctors are still trying to figure out what is wrong. I might have to study up on my nursing skills.

  2. Hoping that your momma is totally ok and healthy again soon!!!

  3. I'm sorry to hear your momma is under the weather. You on the other hand are looking fine! Is this your summer outfit! I love the bloomers/shorts.
