Never before seen picture of Dusty!!

Postby Corinna » Thu Sep 01, 2016 8:00 pm

I just have to share this, one of life's strange coincidences. True story, every word of it, I swear!

I'm staying with a friend in California at the moment (will fly home on Monday though, boohoo!). Yesterday night, she took me to see one of her friends, who showed me around her house. And suddenly, I spotted a photo of DUSTY lying about on a dresser!! It was not a situation to make a big fuss of it, so I just casually asked about the photo, and mentioned that I was a fan. And she said, 'oh, I know this guy, he lives in Palm Springs (he's gay, of course), who loves Dusty. So I thought I'd give him this photo when he comes by next.' Inwardly, I screamed, 'you should give it to ME!!!', but again, it wasn't the right time or place. But she allowed me to take a photo of the photo...

I think she somehow knows Billie Jean King, and that's the connection to Dusty.

PS: I don't know the circumstances or place where the photo was taken, nor who the other person in the photo is.

EDITING: I've just found out the other person is a tennis player by the name of Pat Parson. Not a lot about her on Google, though, unfortunately.

Wow! That's an amazing coincidence (and photo). Isn't it great when a new photo of Dusty appears?

Hope you're enjoying your holiday, Cor. [8D]

You never know what you might see when travelling!
Thanks for posting this photo and story. I think Dusty had more to do with Billie Jean than we realise, and I hope and think she helped her during those years.

Wow Corinna, great photo! And what a huge co-incidence. Dusty looks stunning too. We know from Billie Jean herself and from books (never trust everything you read though!) that they knew each other well and I'll bet there are many, many photos out there that we will never get to see. But we saw this one [:D] I wonder if the Palm Springs friend is Jeffrey King, he's on my Facebook, a long time fan and lives in Palm Springs. I've followed women's tennis for decades but Pat Parson doesn't ring a bell with me either.

Nice picture! Thank you Corinna for sharing it! :star:
Maybe they throw a party. Dusty pours a glass of something and the man opens another bottle. I wish I could know the story of this picture!

I think that is another woman with her. Dusty is pouring wine as her companion is opening another bottle with a corkscrew. Simple story : wine tasting in California!

There is a pic somewhere of Dusty wearing the "Bullet belt". However she wears it in 1971, Marty Feldman Show singing "Take me to the pilot". See You Tube TMTTP.
I'd rather see the world the way it used to be.......
