…oh no – how could I possibly not think of The Osmonds!!! Well Donny in particular, swoon.
I’m cheating now and posting a second Alphabe-Thursday post – it wasn’t until I was halfway through writing the last one that this came to me and I couldn’t bring myself to delete it and start again.
So. Donny. Where shall I start? Well, I have a feeling that one or two of you reading this will be sharing my memories right now. I can remember seeing the Osmonds on The Andy Williams Show on the black and white TV in the sixties, of course it wasn’t until my teenage years that I really fell for Donny (along with David Cassidy, of course)
I remember vividly the posters around my room in Donny’s purple phase – remember that hat?
A couple of years ago the Osmond’s were in the UK and we got tickets to see them at Wembley. Oh my word. I could have been thirteen again. There I was, approaching 50 and screaming, yes screaming for Donny to sing Puppy Love. I had tears streaming down my face. I had waited almost 40 years for that moment – it was worth the wait.
I was there – not my video but it was the night I went ;)
Given the opportunity, I’d love to see them again - Flamingo, Las Vegas anybody??
