Winter Olympics and Crushes


The picture didn't come through too clear but I hope everybody recognizes this to be a picture of Dorothy Hamill at the 1976 Winter Olympics.
I was only 15 at the time. Dorothy was 19 I believe.
The girls standing behind Dorothy were, I believe in the movie The Sound of Music or Dorothy was in the movie and I just don't remember.

She was, ladies and gentleman of the jury, my FIRST major crush.(lust?)

Just a trip down memory lane this morning in honor of the Winter Olympics. Have a Great Day!

I never had a crush on anyone in the olympics, though there were a couple hot guys who were skating about this time...

Thanks so very much for going to my blog and emailing your congresspersons. It's a very important subject, and we need all the help we can get. ;o)

I was just a lass (yes, that's lass, not, well you know) when I asked for the Dorothy Hamill haircut. My long, baby fine, straggly locks were cut off, and I cried. It was a big change for me!
I didn't have a crush on Dorothy, but I guess I had a crush on her hair.

oh yes. i asked for the dorothy hammill haircut too. and the farrah faucet. and the tenille from captain and tenille. i don't think my hair every looked like them.

and it was a crush. not lust. i dont' think our wittle uncle joey is a luster.

AJ: red alert, red alert, and i think you know what i'm referring to, hurry hurry, investigation required.

Aunt Jo said...

I am on the case. Actually it was a tandem investigation.

Badoozie said...

AJ, great minds think alike. aren't we cute? yes we are.

Aunt Jo said...

Dorothy is still beautiful today. Joe has great taste in women, no?
;o)

Badoozie said...

yes he does. he picked you, and you are much prettier than dorothy. she is wrinkly. and saggy. and you're not. so there.
