Little Red Riding Hood

Isn't it funny how something that happened in our early lives is with us forever?

In the first grade of elementary school, our teacher organized a skit of "Little Red Riding Hood."

More than anything else in the world, the part I wanted was to be the little red-caped girl herself. 

No grandmother, no wolf, and no hunter would suffice. I wanted to be little red riding hood.

Maybe it was the yearning look in my six-year-old eyes, or maybe it was a flair for acting shown, but I got the part!

Even now, many decades later, whenever I see anything pertaining to little red riding hood,  it brings back wonderful memories.

I continue my love of theater and am still leery of wolves.

The little dolly shown at the top of this post is now a permanent part of my doll collection.

How wonderful that you got the part of Little Red Riding Hood in first grade. Yes, I remember the story well. This doll is a special reminder of the time you wanted the part very much.....and got it! It's always a joy to see your dolls, Susan, as I'm a doll lover myself.

I do know the story of Little Red Riding Hood! I didn't know you were an actress - but I am not surprised.

What a cherished memory. I had a part in the 8th grade play when I was in first grade. My line was to say something like, "Oh mother!' I played that line to the hilt on the playground. LOL
