HIS NAME WAS JOE

Question Of The Week, 8-07-17

Who was your first crush?

We lived in Heavener, Oklahoma and the church had an annual Sweetheart Banquet. I was only 6 years old but I will never forget going to that banquet with Joe, my Sunday School friend. Mother made me a pink dotted Swiss dress and I thought I was a princess. Joe was dressed nicely in a suit and definitely was dragged by me to the church party. My first love. LOL


Marlon Brando 


Bobby Idle, he bought me popsicles which is funny because my folks owned the store.

That's a really nice story! I can just picture the two of you sharing an ice cream soda, two straws, of course! (Rob) 


Alan Newton....neighbourhood bad boy....he took the same school bus.

Tony, he was in my class in junior school and an altar boy!
Later I travelled to work with him but by then I was over the crush!


Stephen in the first grade. He used me a bit as long as my allowance held out to buy him candy but I still was smitten. I'm sure he turned out to be an overweight gigolo

I don't think I've ever had a crush on anyone. :)

Celebrity crush? Jon English.
Personal? Bruce. A bad boy. Who no doubt continued to be a bad boy.

Daryl...first love.

First celebrity crush was Jon English, like EC, still love him even now.
First crush was a boy named Joe who I was friends with in primary school, a bunch of us used to play hide and seek in a huge stand of bamboo in someone's back garden and I always tried to hide near Joe. His family moved away so he could attend high school in the city :(


Another ranch kid that rode the same school bus. Went steady with him in high school, got engaged in college, and then discovered that I was more in love with love than him. We parted friends, and each found the love of our lives elsewhere.


A girl in from high school (not mine, but from the same state) who I'd met by chance on a trip down to Florida. Sadly, t'was all me an none her

Books By G.B. Miller

A boy named Shep. I went all through elementary school with him and always had a little crush. He told me recently via facebook that he always felt the same back then. Wish I'd know that - I was a bit shy.


Toby was my kindergarten crush. Before that, Christopher Reeve.

Funny you should ask this question...because the last few days, including today, I've been talking about him. His name was Rodney...he was very handsome, and boy, oh, boy...could he play the drums! I first laid eyes on him when I was 15, and still going to school.

I wrote about him in my blog a couple of years ago...and I might just do so again...
