Flashback Friday: "He Wasn't The Man I Wanted to Marry...I Was Sure of It..." :)

I hope you enjoyed this Friday flashback from 1961 in which Donna explains how she first met "Kelly" but didn't think he was "the one" for her. (Um, looking at that top photo of JK, I don't think I'd have any doubts whatsoever... ;>)
The rest of the article is pretty long but here are a few highlights:
  • Sometimes, when JK came to the door for a date, Donna would pretend she wasn't home. So, he left little notes on her door. He wrote messages like 'Hi Kook, the Tiger was here' and drew little tiger paw prints at the bottom of the page!
  • Donna admits, 'But from the beginning, I felt so comfortable with Kelly. That's why I had to call him 'Kelly'. He was like an old shoe. Yet he had so much spring in his step...I could never call him 'Jack'. He's just Kelly. It's the right tag for him. His name should be Kelly-something. Kelly expresses his personality. It tells all about him."
  • And in conclusion: "Maybe now you've got an idea of what Jack Kelly's really like--even when the shades are drawn...This isn't saying that Kelly doesn't have his faults. He much too real not to have any. But don't try to prove them to me. As he can tell you, I have a lousy memory."
Now, don't you forget to come back to TDS for more kewl stories from the Kellection. By the way, I am still working on "All the World's a Stage With JK"--I just keep finding more research material! But, it will be worth the wait, I promise you. Have a great weekend! :)
