Interview at Granddaughter Lynn's Home

The following is an interview with Grandma Cox at the home of her granddaughter, Lynn.

Grandma Cox is going to tell us about her Christmas. (She chuckled.)

Grandma: "That has been so long ago, I don't remember them."

Tell us about your dolls.

Grandma, "You know in our day we got such pretty dolls. We didn't get one that you took by the hair of the head and drug them around. We got pretty dolls with China faces and kid bodies.

"Didn't they break, Grandma?"
