That's HILARIOUS... I love that picture of Annie- she sure was excited to drive the boat.

Lorrie

Who did you love more? Donny or Jimmy?

soulmoxie

Is that even a question? I mean, really. Hasn't Jimmy always been 55? Like from the moment he came from the womb?

I guess what I'm saying is that it was Donny back then, and it's Donny right now. He's still pretty damn cute.

I'm taking my sister to see the Osmond's for her 40th birthday, so I'll let you know if my opinion changes.

Soulmoxie

Who's your preference????

Autumn

Um, Donny! Is there even a contest there? Loved this post. Your sister looks so happy on that boat! You'll have to let me know how the concert goes. :)

Mel

Kids say the damnedest things. That story is too cute.

Lorrie

Yeah-you're right. Jimmy was just one Round Bad Apple right from the start. I think I had a girl crush on Marie around the time she did Paper Roses though. * sigh * Good Times. Turning, Burning, Love keeps a Churning like a........

JenX67

That was great.

Nicole

no you didn't! You are to cute.

Julie

This is a great story! Your sister does look thrilled in that photograph. Your last statement though made me laugh. Kids do say the darnest things. Thanks for sharing that.

when i was a kid i was all about D&M. my 8th birthday party was a sleepover on a friday night...but all festivities had to come to a halt at the appointed hour so that i could watch my beloved D&M show.

in high school, a number of people told me i looked like marie osmand, which was, of course the BIGGEST COMPLIMENT OF MY ENTIRE LIFE even though by then they were complete hasbeens. so 1970's. this compliment quickly left the Linda Carter comparison in the dust.

when i was 18 i met jimmy osmond through a mutual friend. we went out twice. i was by no means attracted to him (though he had slimmed down significantly by that point), but viewed him as a conduit to possibly meeting THE REAL osmonds. yes, i was that shallow.

sadly, the closest i got was his brothers, their band of "next generation" osmond boy singers, and their parents. still, it was a fun little claim to fame. my japanese friend swore jimmy was bigger than the michael jackson of 1982 back at the homeland. she begged me to introduce her, but i have never been able to feign interest in someone i didn't find attractive...celebrity notwithstanding. i had to move on.

then during the Technicolor Dreamcoat era, my FIL somehow arranged a private meeting with Joseph himself after the show for our family. Finally! I was in the room with my childhood idol.

It was underwhelming to say the least. but what did we expect, the annual christmas card and a slice of the family estate? yet, he was personable and still cute as a button for a guy his age. good times.

these days, when I'm walking the aisles (I'm a flight attendant) and people start telling me who i look like, it's generally Liz Hurley. Or Gillian Anderson. Or Tea Leoni (what's the deal with the David Duchovny connections? these all happened on the same flight, mind you) But most consistently it's lizzy they see, forcing me to lean in close to catch a whif of their breath. perhaps it's time to close the liquor cart after all, cause cause there's no basis to these supposed look-alikes. still, it's fun for the ego, no?!

thanks for your comment on my blog! :-)
