I had every album, magazine, 45 and poster ever made with Sonny and Cher!
I would spend hours combing through photos, watching The Sony and Cher Show and even writing fan letters to the duo! My parents saw my obsession and gave it their blessing!
I will always remember the year Sonny and Cher came to the state fair. My dad dropped me and my mom off at 630 in morning
After the concert my mom pulled out her sewing machine and made me a costume just like one of Cher's. I remember wearing this costume, holding a Lincoln Log (with yarn attached for the cord) as a microphone and singing at the top of my lungs! I had the hair flip, the wrist drop and the lick of the lips down to an art, I was CHER!
I miss these simple days for myself and Sony and Cher, I cried when they divorced, but I will always have fond memories of those days pouring over magazines and belting out I Got You Babe!
