WorldPeaceKeepers Are Resurfacing
I was pleasantly surprised on my visit last week to Big Lots. There were a number of WPK dolls on the shelf. I could tell by the new packaging they were not just overstock from many years ago. I found a couple that I could use in Morristown. No dark-skinned brothers on the shelf, but I am hopeful they will show up, too.
When I saw this guy, I immediately thought of JR Martinez, the young soldier who suffered burns over 40% of his body, after his humvee hit a landmine in the Iraq war. He won Dancing with the Stars a year ago. His story is truly inspiring. I've included a 7 min video of his story. Definitely worth taking a look.
So this is JR. I thought he was the person Naisha was sneaking around with, but I don't think that is the case. By the way, this set was $15. Seems like there are now two price points. $10 and $15. The $15 set has more accessories. I didn't need the accessories, but this guy wasn't available for $10.
This is the other gentleman I picked up. He has a nice mature look about him. He looks quite handsome with his salt and pepper hair. I didn't have a plan for him when I bought him, but as I was loading the pictures, his role became very clear.
This is Lauren's husband. Lauren is Racquelle and Faith's mom. She is also the owner of Hotel Monaco. She made reference to her husband in one of the photostories. Well here he is!

There is a possibility that JR is Lauren and her husband's son. Not quite sure yet.
