Richie’s mother, Regina, is mostly a two-trick pony character. Much like Dot, who loves dots and has many zany aunts and uncles, or Lotta, who eats a lot and is strong, most stories about Regina involve her doing one of two things.
- Charity. Regina is constantly going to a charity ball, having a meeting with women involving charity, or donating things to charity.
- Jewelry. Regina is always getting new jewels or doing something ridiculous involving her current jewels. Here are some examples below!
Wearing a giant diamond as a necklace is not recommended for us normal folks.
Perhaps not wearing jewels, high heels, tiaras, etc. could be a fine plan whilst walking.
Who doesn’t throw last year’s jewelry down a hole into the earth?
But, she’s not always a complete ninny. I’ve always loved this story because it involves Regina actually being fairly competent, somewhat athletic, and just kind of a fun mom! And of course, charity and jewels. Enjoy!
Who knew Regina could be so fun? What did you think?
