Exciting news!

I had an article published in my local newspaper!
There were only a few grammatical changes made so I'm quite excited about it.
Of course you know I love Chatty Cathy and still have my childhood doll.
Chatty and I both turned 50 this year, and I haven't seen any articles written about Chatty Cathy and the big 50, so I decided to write my own.

I'm so excited to see my pictures included too! I'm going out later today to pick up the "real" copies of the newspaper.
I guess Barbie is more popular than dear little Chatty Cathy, as Mattel produced a 50's Barbie last year, but nothing new for Chatty. What a shame! Don't you think I could use another Chatty Cathy in my collection?

That's great! I enjoyed reading your article. I tried to print it, but it wouldn't fit on the page, so I saved it and will try and see if I can reduce it and print it out.
