It is one of the cutest photos of the Everlys when they were children. How can I say that! All of those photos are so cute. Children's photos as a rule are very cute.

Ivan went through a phase with gaping holes about a year ago. His dentist said he needs intervention because his teeth were causing excessive crowding so he had to go to an orthodontist to get some issues resolved. He wears a retainer at night only and those teeth are lining up very nicely now.

TVWeek cover for Nov. 29, 1970, promoting "The Petula Clark Special" that aired Dec. 6, 1970, with The EBs as guests. We have numerous copies of this TV clip in Videos.

Interesting.
Don and Phil on the cover, with Dean Martin on the right. The girl on the bottom left Leslie Gore, or Peggy Lee?
Have no idea who the other male guest is.

I still wonder if the Everly Brothers ever made a trip to the Houston area. I meant to go through the touring dates list in the back of the Everlypedia but I have not done that yet. Calls for several rainy days, I think! haha Lots of touring--as if we did not know that already!

Looks like they are having a good laugh. Would love to know what was so funny.
Is that a bandage or wrap on Don's right hand? Didn't Don fall while jogging one year?

When I first saw this photo of Don many months ago, I thought it was Phil. Don's chickenpox scar (we think that's what it is) made me realize it is not Phil but Don. This is definitely a time when they look like brothers.
