Cheer Up Sleepy Jean

Turn your speakers on, we're playing tribute to Davy Jones. It's a sad day--one that reminds us how young and carefree we once were. I will always remember the Monkees,  Davy Jones was my favorite...he graced the cover of many a dog-eared Sixteen  and Tiger Beat magazine, and was the subject of THE go-to kissable poster in numerous pre-teen bedrooms (mine included).

Davy Jones and Illya Kuryakin (David McCallum...and NO 'Ducky' does not come to mind when we mention his name)....

(You know, in 1967, you wouldn't have given this picture a second thought--not even a giggle)

Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger.....all so worthy of a 13-year old girl renouncing her citizenship and stowing away on the QEII for a chance encounter--and the hope to become a child bride.   Okay, at least until that 13 year old became a 14 year old and turned her attention to hitchhiking out to San Francisco, with flowers in her hair, to cavort with the likes of Marty Balin (Jefferson Airplane), Jim Morrison, or any one of the Buffalo Springfield.

Nonetheless, Davy Jones died far too young, and will always have a place in my heart.

RIP Davy, and thanks for everything. You will forever be my Daydream Believer.


  1. I didn't know he had died. Thanks for the enlightenment. And I remember those days well too.

  2. Well said. R.I.P. Davy Jones

  3. So sad about Davy. Is that a picture from Mission Impossible?


I appreciate and look forward to your comments. Thanks for reading. Happy quilting!
