Double Thanks!

October 3, 2017


I got a lovely and sweet surprise in the mail a few days ago.  At convention, the incredibly talented figure makers (and nicest people on the planet), Mary Ann & Melissa Taylor, each adopted a dummy (more on the dummies in a sec).  They didn't stop there, though.  This past week, they sent an additional donation....for 'school supplies'...for the dummies!  How funny is that?!  It made me laugh out loud at their humor, creativity, and generosity.  Thanks, thanks, thanks to you both!!!  Here's a sweet photo of Mary Ann & Melissa from a couple of years ago at convention.


I decided to play along with the Taylors and so I put some school supplies in the laps of their two adopted dummies,  Tommy Wood and Jerry.


Here's Jerry with his ruler, notepad, and glue...probably has some project due soon...


Jerry is a beautiful Mack figure that was owned and used by Al Saal.  Of the dummy, Saal says in a 7/8/1949 letter to Mr. Berger, "...I drew plans for him and sent 'em to Theo Mack in Chicago....he knew how to make them right with easy and large mouth movement.
