First Loves Blogfest

Who could resist reminiscing with Alex J Cavanagh for this Blogfest?

Okay so post your first loves – first movie, first song/band, first book, and first person. Four loves, one blogfest!

First Film: Remember I was a teenager in the 1970's and I feel head over heels for Superman. (Then I did again when the Dean Cain Terri Hatcher series came out decades later). I even swooned over the post in my bedroom every night.

First Book: No surprises here as I have already blogged about this one. I read it at the age of 17 yrs and it was the first and only novel I read in 4 hours from cover to cover.






First Song: I enjoy songs with lyrics I can join in with.
My first fav pop group/ album was definitely ABBA. However, like so many girls of my age, I also loved the Osmonds and one of my favourites was sung by the lovely Merril.
Love me for a Reason


First Love: I was 5 yrs old and was being bullied in the playground by a group of girls and a little boy with red hair called Mark came to my aid and allowed me to join his friends at playtime. He was my hero and I will always love him for showing me such kindness. He gave me my first Valentine and made me feel special.

What were your first loves?

  8. My sister had the biggest crush on Donny Osmond when we were kids. We even had to paint the bedroom we shared purple, because she said it was his favorite color.

  12. Visiting from the First Loves Blogfest. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Abba. My parents had one of their albums and my sister and I would play it over and over and dance and sing in the living room. Have you seen Priscilla, Queen of the Desert? Oh, and Superman- loved that movie as well as the Lois and Clark show. What ever happened to that show? Great first love story- how sweet.

  13. ABBA is great. I love how their music has never really gone away.

    Mark sounded like such a sweetheart. Standing up for you at that age, what a nice little boy.

  20. Superman was a fun movie. Bet it looks dated now, so I'll just keep my memories intact.
    Thanks for participating in my blogfest!

  21. My mom used to call in and request Abba's Super Trooper for me because apparently, it was my toddler favorite song. I don't remember that at all, but have discovered I like it now.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Superman is a great film. I went through an ABBA phase in 1992-ish when yet another greatest hits album was released - the perfect way to dance away exam stress!

    ReplyDelete
  23. SUPERMAN! Nice choice. And I haven't read The Millstone (hides face in shame).

    ReplyDelete
  24. Superman is always a good pick.
    As is ABBA. ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  25. Superman also makes me swoon.

    I need to look into The Millstone. I've never heard of it.

    ReplyDelete
  26. The story about your first love (person) is so sweet. Great post :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Now I want to read The Millstone-added to my TBR!

  28. Sweet; you're playing to my old heart :)

  30. Hey Maddy that note is priceless. Love Abba. Love watching the Mumma MIA movie. Superman was great too. Must read that book.

  31. Superman was mine, too! I was in third grade, and every once in a while, my teacher let us read the magazines in her classroom. I'd always choose the one with the full page Superman picture and swoon. (But only when I was sure no one was looking. ;)

    And that love letter is adorable!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love ABBA! And aw, the story of your 5-year-old rescue by red-headed Mark. Sweet! Thanks for a fun post!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh bless you all for stopping by. Yes Mark was a real sweetie and I often wonder where he is now and what sort of life he's had.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Aaaw, how sweet was Mark?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Very sweet story, Madeleine - and you still have the note!

    ReplyDelete
  36. How sweet, I loved your first love story, and admire such a young boy being so kind! I hope he grew up to be a wonderful man!

  37. Superman was on my list, as well. They don't make a lot of movies, these days, that can capture the imagination like this one did. Great choice.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ah, I love your first person love! Everyone needs a hero. How sweet.
