Daisy Mae 1970 Dogpatch, USA


By popular demand (3 people!)-- sending in pictures in the last week, it looks like we finally have a female entry for the Hall of Fame. Our very own Miss Dogpatch USA, Daisy Mae of 1970 (also known as Jan Greene Sprott). Jan is spending a busy year in 2006-2007 as the First Lady of Arkansas lawyers. Her husband Jim Sprott from Harrison was just sworn in as President of the Arkansas Bar Association. Here's the announcement. The Arkansas Lawyer magazine just published today has a full story with a picture of Jan & Jim at Dogpatch which is where they met. Here's a 2004 Ark Democrat Gazette story of how they met at Dogpatch. Jan's story will be moved to the Hall of Fame after awhile. Lil Abner Comic Strip Official Website.

My Hot Mama Daisy Mae,
I am SO PROUD OF YOU!!! You were...and are...so gorgeous and such a great role model. You will always be in my Hall of Fame. Love, Your Baby Girl, Emily
.

(Note: Jan's daughter, Emily, is in law school at University of Arkansas).

Oh my gosh! I remember Janis Greene.
I haven't seen her since we graduated.
She was so sweet. Didn't she have green hair one time. She was always so carefree and smiled all the time even that time she wore her hair in that cute little flip that covered her face. When she would breathe we could see that adorable smile. Ya'll refresh my memory. Is she the one that didn't have ankles? I noticed that none of those pictures showed them. I may have that wrong. Refresh my memory, would you, please. I vote for Janis Greene for the
Hall of Fame. I hear she has a really
nice husband.

Here's the inside scoop: Linda & Jan are close friends from childhood...Linda loves Jan...it's just an inside, ongoing joke that Linda makes sure Jan stays humble...Linda keeps us in stiches with her wisecracks and periodic teasing of Jan. See posting of more repartee between them & an example of how the girls of '68 jib-jab each other with affection at "60's WHBQ-AM"

I would like to encourage everyone to remember Jan in the recent loss of her beautiful son Daniel. He was a very Special person who touched my life in the few times I was around him The family has honored him with a blog and if you take the time to read it, it will warm your heart with the meaning of what a loving family is all about. It is danielsprott.blogspot.com. Even if you never met Daniel, you will feel you knew him after reading what a wonderful example he was of what life is all about. Loveya Jan, Dora
