[00:07:21] Jody: At the back. Um, until you get the, see the green words. Some of it’s pretty thick, so you get, you bevel out the back of the eyes and get the um, How do you get the um, You have a, you have a little ball on a stick and you go up inside the head and you bevel out the back of the eyes until it gets real thin.

So that the eyes will sit in there. And you look at some of your dogs and they don’t bevel until they get really thin. Bevel the eyes so that, uh, you get the,

[00:07:51] Unknown: well,

[00:07:51] Jody: you can see the difference. Yeah, she, she showed me the other night. Because we know somebody that’s been doing this a long

[00:07:59] Unknown: time and Julie was just surprised that she

[00:08:02] Jody: hadn’t beveled the eyes.

This one here, um, Century, she’s called Century Dog. Century. And it’s a, it’s a very old mole. So she doesn’t have a lot of teeth and a lot of gums. So she, you know, everything’s, what do you call it, everything’s dead. Oh! But, um, I had her cat on them, and took her into the fire. And the lady had taken it to her home.

And she was carrying it in her house, and she killed her cat in the house. Oh my god. I killed the cat. The cat is dead. Yeah, she called and told me. She what? She called and told me that she killed the cat. Oh. Well, you had one trouble.

[00:08:49] Unknown: That’s,

[00:08:50] Randy and John: that’s one. Or you thought that she didn’t have it, she might have done it on purpose or made a hole in it.

Yeah, I, yeah, because it

[00:08:56] Jody: was, this is, and I called the place where I got the, where I got the greenware. And said, and said, I’ve got, I’ve got to have a, um, The hair, I, the hair that Gloria went to, I handed Gloria in and, uh, sent her doll’s head, and she says, well, we don’t have it, and I said, but I bought it there.

And she says, oh, well, but we don’t, um, have the mold, the mold just belongs to somebody that, you know, comes in, and I said, well, I’ve gotta have, you know, I’ve got these two hairs, I have to have the head, you see. So she says she tried to get it for me. So she did get it for me. So I don’t know, to do it three pieces.

[00:09:32] Randy and John: Yeah. Call NOMS, I don’t know. Do you have access to any of those, Mr. Evans? Oh yeah, though, especially the dental stuff is usually more expensive than, you know. I’m still

[00:09:50] Jody: careful deciding which side to use it on. But,

[00:09:53] Randy and John: but, it may not be, you know. Depending on how, how big your other one, you know, how big Probably the heads are going to be fired at one time.

Unless somebody’s been killed. Yeah. You know, that’s what I was wondering.

[00:10:06] Jody: Oh, you mean a lot of, uh, Uh, Dillon and I was going out

[00:10:08] Randy and John: of business all the time. We picked it up, uh, See, that’s what I’m thinking. When shipping down here. We just, we picked it up. I mean, it would be nice if she could fire her own stuff, wouldn’t it?

[00:10:17] Jody: Look at that face. That

[00:10:20] Randy and John: was the head, probably, huh?

[00:10:21] Jody: Yeah. And you

[00:10:25] Randy and John: cover them up with little You have

[00:10:32] Randy and John: that something? Oh, I never

[00:11:10] Unknown: Okay. Be careful with

[00:11:17] Jody: him. You tired? You can’t rule out there.

[00:11:35] Unknown: I

[00:11:36] Jody: can’t. I still, I, I’m a marvel at porcelain, but I marvel just as much at the sewing. Because I know sewing. I’ll, I’ll, I’ll make dolls, but, um, in fact, I’ll be graduating to make little dolls. I enjoy that. Enjoy what? I enjoy the doll making. But not the sewing. I do not enjoy the sewing. That’s a lot of work.

I don’t enjoy the sewing either. Do you have a machine? I have a machine, yeah. Personally. But I didn’t have any patterns. I had one little pattern for the bottom, so I did. And that’s how I made this doll. Four little shoes. Do they, do they? I mean, when you buy

[00:12:22] Unknown: now, let me see your little face. Their faces are, oh, I know. They’re so different.

[00:12:31] Jody: Green babies also got a completely different body this way. You know that, that is fascinating to see the difference in those two.

[00:12:39] Randy and John: Hold them this way.

[00:12:42] Jody: Look at the difference in the size. The heads are almost the same. This one’s a little bigger, but Look at the size of the nose.

[00:12:50] Randy and John: I like the small forehead.

[00:12:52] Jody: Ah, I do too.

[00:12:53] Randy and John: I like, I like these eyes. These

[00:12:56] Jody: eyes? Yeah, those look good. But I like the forehead. I like this one. It’s, uh, It’s got more of a face. I just can’t figure out how much money you’re making. I know. I’m sorry.

Would you break it? No, I wouldn’t. Let

[00:13:16] Randy and John: me see. Yeah, take that camera out. Go ahead, open it.

[00:13:19] Jody: Randy, sweetie. Camera chopper. I

[00:13:22] Randy and John: like that. That turned out pretty good. Oh, yeah. Those were all real nice. Do you feel pretty? Beautiful.

[00:13:31] Jody: I hope you all like it. You are our star. Every time I go past one of these, I go, look,

[00:13:56] Unknown: John! Look! Well, I said, thank you.

[00:14:00] Jody: We’ve had to get these through, uh, See you next

[00:14:03] Unknown: time.

[00:14:03] Jody: And when we told her to get food, she said, Oh, Karen and I both have seen one that’s less expensive. Jody? I

[00:14:15] Randy and John: can’t hear Jody.
