Interview with Lisa Day

Welcome Lisa Day to the Master Koda blog! We are happy to have you with us today.

Tell us a story! What is one of your favorite childhood memories?

I have pleasant memories of rainy Saturdays. Those were the days I could spent with my father. He didn’t  have go into work. He didn’t mow the yard. In the mornings, together we would go downtown and browse the hobby shop and Woolworth’s department store.

One particular rainy Saturday afternoon dad and I were home alone.  I had a rubber dolly named Ruth (so called- because she was manufactured by the Ruth Co. and it was stamped on her back.)

Dad was a single father at the time. I was about 6-7 years old. I remember the afternoon when dad took a nap on the living room sofa. My grandmother wasn’t at home. I don’t remember where she had gone.

On the opposite side of the room I spread out all my doll stuff. This included a crib. I played: I put baby  Ruth down for  a nap after changing her  wet diaper. She would  wake up with a wet diaper. I would be a good little mommy and change it. I did  this over and over. One of the trips to the kitchen sink to refill the small realistic baby bottle I got the bright idea to use real milk. Dad had no way of knowing I going into the kitchen for water, or that I changed to milk.

Neither, dad nor my grandmother were too happy to discover I used all the milk feeding hungry Ruth. However, being a spoiled child, I wasn’t disciplined other than told not to do it again.

Needless to say, my grandmother after a few days found Ruth with the sour milk smell and Ruth disappeared. My new doll Cathy had a china head and a solid cloth body.

What a great story Lisa, thanks for sharing it with all of us.
