All By Myself (Cj & Rusty For Children)

Then she’ll be calling a sitter

The sitter, she’s really boring.
She’s always on the dumb phone,

so I guess I’ll be playing alone …

I think I will get out my play dough

What can I say...brilliant. Once again you've allowed me to travel back in time to a much simpler time. A time where the biggest decision I had to make was whether to color my picture using red or blue or whether to put the lace dress or the satin dress on my dolly. Ah, life was so much easier then.; -) Shannon

CJ, Rusty, what a brilliant piece, capturing that spirit that children exhibit, of making do, because what they really want is not available to them. I guess it shows the versitility of children, something we lose as we grow older. Brilliant! Love Denis Joe
