Donny and Marie

When I was a child I would watch the Donny and Marie Show with my brother and sister. We NEVER missed a week! Donny of course was going to be my eternal mate! And Marie... well she was the prettiest girl in the whole wide world. I had here in barbie doll form... I still remember the dress it came with. Purple with a shag bottom... simply dreamy!

Anyway... I found this clip on youtube today... After all these years the song finds its way to my forethought.

How I wish my kids had shows like this to watch... I mean really are they going to remember the theme song to Hannah Montana or Zack and Cody some 30 odd years later? I dont think so...

Oh and it is still cold today..... Wake up Spring....Where are you???

Oh, yeah, baby, Donny and Marie were it for us! My parents even took us to a concert in Pocatello - we thought we were HOT STUFF! I love that song - I want to get it in vinyl for one of my walls in my house :) I put it on our Christmas Scrapbooks this year.

I admit I remember their movie Going Coconuts I believe. I even confess to owning at one time a cassette of Marie's greatest hits.

I just want to comment on the spring not being here. I AGREE!!! I keep looking outside and hoping it will be warm, but then get sad when I actually go outside. I am ready for some warm days.

As a side note, I have to give you a hard time about spelling my last name. hehehe It has one n and one m. ;)
