You and your girlfriends would fight over

It was a big event in your household each year when the

- As for me . . . my big loves were Paul McCartney and Davy Jones of the Monkees . . . from the time I was a little girl I played acoustic guitar and the music of the Beatles and the Monkees are what I loved to play the most.
Many years after they were so popular on the radio and with their television series, I went to a Monkees revival concert at a local club and ran into Davy Jones as my friend and I tried to find the dressing room since I wanted to meet him in a bad way. He was as cute as he was back in the day in a little boy kind of way . . . he has the most beautiful smile I have ever seen. Oh yeah, I got a hug and a kiss. :)
