You're Invited to a Wedding


by Deb Baker


Tonight at 7pm, Woody and Emma, a cloth doll couple, will renew their wedding vows in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Thirty years ago today, this lovable twosome attracted hundreds of people and media coverage when they tied the knot. Tonight, the same minister will preside over the exchange and some of the same musicians will play.

Emma is a retired Piggly Wiggly clerk. Woody’s a retired bus driver. At the first wedding, people dressed up as dolls, brought their dolls, donated a limo, and sent flowers. Not to mention the three-tier wedding cake.

The renewal of their vows tonight promises to be an even more spectacular event. And we’re all invited.

I could come, dressed as a vintage Chatty Cathy! All I would have to do is keep my eyes propped open wide and attach a retractable string and loop to my back!

But was there ever a Chatty C. who was programmed to say, "Congratulations! Much Renewed Happiness to you Both!"? Lol!
