Saving Hitty Cassidy Raikes
I had read several accounts of the Raikes Hittys snapping their elastic, and it was no surprise that, when I was posing Hitty Cassidy Raikes, the elastic on her legs broke. I had no intentions of sending her back to the factory for weeks, while she was repaired. Instead I decided to attempt repairs on my own. Although practically, the best repair would have been pegs, I wanted to try repairing her with elastic, so she could remain limber. Below is the story of Hitty Cassidy Raikes and her untimely accident.
|Hitty Cassidy Raikes had volunteered to help the groan-ups put away the stuff left over from Camp.|
|Oops! There goes the pen!||
|And--oh no! There goes Hitty Cassidy Raikes too!||
|She howled and screeched, and really wanted to say a bad word, but Raikes Hittys are very polite. (And a bit too young for bad words.)||
|She was promptly loaded onto a stretcher, and taken to the infirmary.||
After the operation, Hitty Cassidy relaxes on the day bed.
Hitty Connie lends Hitty Cassidy her favorite dolly to play with.
Hitty Zora tries out the crutches.
A back rub makes her feel good!
