Dancing With Sean Connery (Mum, not me)


For those of you who commented on my last blog post about my mum dancing with Sean Connery, here are the pictures.

It was the sixties. Doesn't she look lovely? He looks gorgeous too, of course, but then he was James Bond!

She looks gorgeous. How much do I love her hair? Beautiful!

Wow! What lovely pictures - your mum looks beautiful x

Deborah (Debs) Carr said...

cally - her hair was always beautifully done whenever she went out. Mine gets a quick look at the straighteners and we're away!

teresa - thank you, she does look lovely, doesn't she?

Jenny Beattie said...

Wow; that's some claim to fame Debs. What were the circumstances?

Deborah (Debs) Carr said...

Jenny - My father arranged a ball for charity (he was involved with the Lions Club and other things back then) and brought Sean Connery over as the guest for the ball.

Anna Scott Graham said...

Oh Debs, this is priceless! Your mum is stunning, and of course, Sean, well... :)))

Been meaning to tell you how great your new blog photo is! Lovely women in your family!

Jen said...

Wow, how impossibly, fabulously brilliant is that?

I am *so* going to add 'dance with James Bond' to the things-to-do-before-I-die list!

Deborah (Debs) Carr said...

anna - thank you very much. She is lovely and I'm pleased with my profile picture. I hate having my photo taken, but the photographer was very good.

jen - me too! I wouldn't mind dancing with Daniel Craig, though I can't see that happening anytime soon.

Rosemary Gemmell said...

Oh, wow - what a handsome couple! Thanks for sharing this fabulous photo!

Sue Guiney said...

My God, that is so amazing! She's beautiful, and what an incredible thing for your father to have arranged for her. I would have been a puddle of inanity....

Jenny Woolf said...

Wow this is complete glamour!

KarenG said...

Well I missed that post about Sean Connery but you can bet I'm going right back to find it and read it! Love the photos!

Deborah (Debs) Carr said...

rosemary - I haven't really looked at the picture for years, but he seems quite taken with her.

sue - my dad didn't actually arrange it for her, he brought Sean Connery over as a guest of honour for a ball. She seems so composed, which she would have been no doubt.

jenny - my parents were always dressed up and going to wonderful parties. I remember how beautiful she always looked.

karenG - lol, thank you. It was the previous post.

Chris Stovell said...

Gosh, don't they make a gorgeous couple! That's a really fabulous photo, Debs - thanks so much for showing us.

Diane Fordham said...

Oh wow! She does look lovely. What a fantastic pic. :-)

Faye said...

Don't know who's the luckier, Debs! He does look quite taken with er doesn't he? And no wonder, she's just lovely. Love that look and 'masterful" hold. :-)

A man called Valance said...

Debs, you inspire me.

(Course that's a bare-face lie, but like you said yourself - it'd be nice to hear sometime. I thought so too, so I'm playing the good fairy and spreading a little of Diane's sunshine your way.)

Deborah (Debs) Carr said...

chris - thank you. They do, don't they. x

diane - thank you, I thought so too.

faye - I thought he looked rather masterful too.

valance - thank you anyway, even if it was a lie.

Karen said...

That's amazing! Love the way he's looking at her :o)

Pat Posner said...

So lovely, Debs!

Deborah (Debs) Carr said...

Thank you for the lovely comments. Mum is always glamorous and although I remembered she'd 'danced with James Bond' I haven't really looked at the pictures before.

Flowerpot said...

Well, that's cheered me up - what a great picture! xx

Chad Aaron Sayban said...

Now THAT is a picture with a thousand words. Nice!

Mama J said...

Brilliant photo. Your mum looks very sophisticated.

Annieye said...

Wow, this is a lovely photo. I bet your mum has treasured it. She looks lovely.

Deborah (Debs) Carr said...

Flowerpot - thank you.x

chad - it certainly is!

mamaj - she does, doesn't she?

annieye - thank you, she has.

Kath said...

I love love love her hair! How on earth did she get it to stay up like that? She looks so beautiful and completely unflustered at taking 007 for a spin around the dance floor. That is very cool!

Deborah (Debs) Carr said...

Kath - and she still is very cool ;0)

Mum used to do her own hair a lot of the time, though I can't imagine that she managed this creation!

Carol said...

That is awesome (and not the cheesy American kind of awesome). Love the pics...your Mum looks beautiful obviously it runs in the family :-)

Deborah (Debs) Carr said...

carol - thank you kindly, lovely lady!
