Who Were Yours?

Way back when I was a kid, my crushes were usually on celebrities...or some of my sister's dates. However, in looking back on my choices, they certainly weren't your obvious or usual ones like David Cassidy, Bobby Sherman, Paul McCartney (I am really dating myself), or Richard Chamberlain (rememba Dr.  Kildaire? - probably not). Anyway, I woke this morning thinking about the men I had a crush on...


First, there was this guy - hint Danno on Hawaii Five-O.



Then there was this guy - David Gates - rememba "Baby Ima Wantchu"?



And then him.... before he went all Liberace on us.

And, finally, now this gets really pathetic...but I ran home every day from school to watch this guy...



I think I should have gone for counseling.


However, I did end up marrying my first crush's namesake - Dan O!





He's not a musician, not a detective, and sure as shootin' not a vampire. Funny how things work out.



Do you remember your TV/movie heartthrobs???

Bobby Sherman, David Cassidy and Davy Jones!

Dottie, I ran home to watch Barnabus Collins too!
Actually, I might see Bobby Sherman today.
He lives in the area and goes to many of the big car shows ...as a reserve county sheriff!
He looks the same just older and "fluffy-er"
We went somewhere 1960's famous last weekend , check my blog!

Yep, I watched Dark Shadows too.

I remember liking Linda Evans as Audra on The Big Valley.

HA! You and I definitely come from the same era, Dot! I never watched Dark Shadows though as it always spooked me! Thanks for jarring my ol' memory....goodness, I enjoyed the music from that time...

Blessings,

He is even better than all those detectives and musicians though, isn't he? I love his smile. And I LOVE how your kids are such perfect mixes of both of you! Very sweet post Dot : ) I loved it!
