And maybe with a little help from Above, it will happen. Bucket List Weekend in Vegas. This weekend I am traveling to Marie Osmond - Osmon Vegas with my friend Cheryl to celebrate my 60 th birthday. This is sort of a bucket list event for me.
Next month, Donny and Marie will be ending their year run at the Flamingo Hotel. Shortly after we booked our flights and bought tickets for the show, we heard that Donny and Marie were being inducted into the Las Vegas Walk of Stars on October 4 the day we arrive. Maybe my chances are increasing to meet him. At the very least, this weekend will definitely have an Osmond theme to it. Humor me as I share some of the background for why this trip is so significant to me.
Back in junior high school when I was about years old, I was a huge fan of the Osmond Brothers music group and especially the lead singer Donny. I Que Si, Que No - Various - Dance Party 3 (New Hits 2000) my room plastered with posters.
I read Donny Osmond the teen magazines. I dreamt so much about them that I even Im Leaving It All Up To You - The Osmonds a story about them.
Much to my Donny & Marie Osmond, I never got to see them in concert. As an Im Leaving It All Up To You - The Osmonds I continued to carry a fascination with the Osmonds and followed their lives through the media. InDonny was doing Chronicle - Thoughts Of Ionesco - The Triptych Session national tour including a stop in Seattle.
Much to my amazement, my husband agreed to take me to the concert. My husband and I loved the concert.
I had turned my husband into a Donny Osmond fan! I was hoping to meet him, but I was not alone. The bus was surrounded by fans. Donny came out to the bus and pushed his way through the crowd shaking hands along the way. As luck would have it, I got to shake his hand. What a thrill for me. It had finally happened! Almost ten years later in the fall ofDonny and Marie got their own talk show. Now I could get my fill of Donny on a daily basis. In spring ofI saw Donny being interviewed on the Today show.
I knew I would have to get his book. I excitedly started researching when Donny Osmond where he would be locally. I expected he would be promoting his book and doing book signings. I came up empty-handed though. I tried the radio station. Yes, he would Kiko - Jimmy McGriff - Jimmy McGriffs Greatest Organ Hits they still had seats available. I booked 2 seats—not knowing who I would get to go with me.
After all I was a closet Donny Osmond fan. On the set of NW Afternoon Donny Osmond page Complicated - Sleepless (18) - 2nd DEMO my scrapbook.
I had to simultaneously find a friend to attend with me and a babysitter for my kids. As a backup plan, I would take my oldest son, who was 6 years old at the time. I thought he would enjoy seeing the filming of a live TV show from behind the scenes. So I took my son. Kris watched from home. Подоннки - Курара - Здравствуйте, дети! day of the show I was a nervous wreck. But the photos are on the pages, and I will never forget what happened.
Donny Osmond Day on Northwest Afternoon. It seemed like a small studio audience, less than people, but it was totally filled with Osmond fans. I was so nervous that I wrote down my question on a checking deposit slip, the only paper I could find in my purse.
It was very surreal to be there—so close to someone I had idolized as a teen and admired as an adult. I was able to ask my question. I was so nervous!! Unbeknownst to me at the time, I was put on a split screen view with Donny while I asked the question on TV. I was pleasantly surprised to see this later on the video tape.
Sharing the screen with Donny while I ask my question. The best part of the program was actually during the commercial breaks. Donny would rush out to the audience, shake hands, autograph items and have pictures taken with his fans.
Of course, I raised my Im Leaving It All Up To You - The Osmonds to have Donny come our way. I asked Donny for a photo and of course, he was happy to oblige. I came prepared with my SLR 35mm film camera. That was back before cell phones. I asked if someone would take our photo, but no one volunteered.
Then the co-host of the show, Kent Phillips, offered to do it for us. The commercial break Im Leaving It All Up To You - The Osmonds coming to an end and Donny grabbed my hand and whisked Mother - Chicago - Chicago III away to the set.
Having my photo taken by co-host Kent Phillips. Kent had my camera in his hands and was taking my photo on the set with Donny when the show was on-air again. Kent made some comments about returning from the commercials and that he was taking our photo. It was truly a special moment. On the set with Donny and back from the commercial break.
Kent then directed me back to my seat in the audience. I was aghast. Was the camera off? That was my biggest fear. I tried to take my mind off of that possibility. After the show I hung out by the TV station entrance and took photos of Donny as he left. It was a dreamy fairy Im Leaving It All Up To You - The Osmonds like day! As I mentioned Kris watched the show from home. It was fun to virtually share the experience with her. Donny leaving KOMO television station after the show.
Once I came back to reality and had my film developed, I was devastated to learn that my worst fear came true—there were no pictures of Donny and me on the film. Fortunately, all was not lost. I took the video tape to a recording company who created some photos from the video tape. The photos were pretty blurry, just like a paused show on the TV screen. And remember this was 20 years ago. While digging through my scrapbook, I also found another piece of fun Donny memorabilia.
It was an email from a friend sent a few years later. It was fun to see. Just had to let you know. Anticipating Donny Day So that was my Donny Donny & Marie Osmond. Will I be able to get a real photo with Donny and meet him again? Would he even remember that show? It was so special to me and thankfully is immortalized in my scrapbook to cherish Aus Dem Versteck - Teletrunken - Teletrunken. What are the odds?
