|Donny and Kym dancing the tango.. He said this was "the sleeping on the couch" dance... He was right, it was hot!!|
As long as I can remember I have been a fan of Donny Osmond!! When I was young I remember my dad waking us kids up on Saturday mornings. He would make us breakfast and then turn on the music and organize us into cleaning up the house in preparation for Sunday. He would let my mom sleep in and he would let each of us children take turns in choosing the music we cleaned to. I always chose the Osmonds, Donny or Abba. So my affection for Donny is some how tied into the affection I feel for my dad and my memories of times with my family.
We listened to music on road trips and on short trips anywhere, even just down the road. Music was a big part of my life. To this day I dislike driving anywhere in silence and I always clean better with music playing in the back ground.
My Best friend Linda introduced me to ball room dancing. She used to teach it and when Dancing with the stars started, we would meet up and watch together. Although I LOVE music, I can't dance worth beans!! Berrett on the other hand, can, and he is good enough to make me look better.
Any way, back to DWTS... Imagine my excitement when Marie Osmond was one of the stars. Then my excitement was even greater when Donny joined the lineup a few seasons later. Poor Linda had to listen to me ooh and awww over Donny!! I voted as much as humanly possible and even enlisted friends to let me borrow their email accounts to vote!! Berrett claims that reason Donny won is because of me!
I am also lucky enough to have a sweet husband who indulges me with Donny concerts and even designed tshirts with "#1 fan of Donny Osmond" then he wore a shirt that said "Hubby of #1 fan of Donny Osmond"
I once got told at a concert that my husband was the sweetest guy on earth because he willingly wore that tshirt. I was also challenged by another fan in Vegas when she saw my tshirt. She said "She was Donny's # 1 fan". I asked her if she was wearing a tshirt that proclaimed it? Then she saw Berrett's tshirt and laughed and told me I had to be his number one fan.
So that is just one of the "weird-dom's" of my personality. But I will always be a fan. Of course I Love and adore my husband more than Donny!! Who wouldn't? He adores me, and to Donny I am just another one of those crazy 40 something women in the audience. But you have to admit for a man in his fifty's who is also a grandpa, Donny is pretty cute!! And can he sing!!
