p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Lawrence Welk- musician and golfer


Pic is not a big deal- but I came across this very old B&W negative, so I scanned and processed it.
I had just moved to Portland Oregon and was at the first Tee watching the players as they competed in Portland's big celebrity tournament. The guest of honor arrived and tee'd off. Then hopped into a golf cart and zoomed (slowly) to where the ball had landed (about a 160 yard drive- but straight, as I remember).
I took a couple of photographs because he seemed like a nice man and, he WAS the guest of honor.
Perhaps a bit of nostalgia for some. Certainly Mr. Welk, his band and his TV program were representative of simpler times that have been lost.

Nice photo...marking his score card..good smiles on both...notice the hands touching.

I grew up watching his TV show and hearing his music (and the variety acts on his show). So, I remember his smile and him as a very popular entertainer (he had a very long career in music). Always on his show he had his signature: Pop!

"... ana one ana two..."
Earlier than you, Steady, I also watched the Lawrence Welk Show on TV- whenever I was home with my parents. It was live television (I'm pretty sure), and my folks watched the program. Quite simply- I watched what my parents watched (life was even simpler for young men).

I am just six days plus 77 years from my birth date. Love the photo, the era.
And, as Charlie said, "Quite simply-I watched what my parents watched" I recall as well.
Again, nice catch, Charlie, and a well done!

A - wonderful a- wonderful. Turn on the bubble machine.

Good photo Charlie. Good comp and smiles. I didn't notice the hands touching until Steady saw it first.

Very nice. I would not have recognized him - but I am old enough.

Very cool.
I had to watch his show any time my grandmother babysat us.
Now, all these years later, I catch reruns on occasion and marvel at the clothes, hair, and beautiful wholesomeness of it all.

This is a great moment Charlie.
The world was simpler and people had a lot more class and restraint.
Today this would be twisted into a scandal of a celebrity acting inappropriate
