My daughter-in-law tossed out a new game topic and I've decided to join in.
I'm not the best with the photos and these will be smaller than most, so
please bear with me. I will name my "crushes" from when I was youngest
on up, but don't ask me for years - I can't tell you.
First of all, I remember having a big crush on Davy Jones, the lead singer
with a British group called the Monkees. Many of our local bands modeled
themselves off of his and the Beatles hairstyles. I thought he was the "cat's
meow" (A phrase from my day. :)
The next two came on the scene close to the same time - Pernell Roberts
(played the oldest son on Bonanza) and Lee Majors (who debuted on the
series Big Valley as the youngest son). While most of my friends were
enamored with "Little Joe", my eyes were stuck on Adam. I even liked
the way he walked! Lee Majors went on to play the Six Million Dollar man.
It was mainly his eyes that caught my attention.
Interesting enough, when my hubby Tom and I were dating, occasionally
he was mistaken for Lee Majors. I guess I've always been a sucker for
handsome, dark haired men. Which is why I've included an earlier photo
of Tom with my group of crushes!
The next one on my list was there for many years - the one and only - Elvis.
I know, I know you younger gals are saying - the one with the rotating hips
and slicked back hair? Don't get me wrong - I was never a groupie wanting
his sweaty hanky, but there sure was something sexy about the man!
Unfortunately, his fame got away from him. Even as a married woman with
two young children, I cried when I heard that he'd died.
What a sad way to go. He was only in his mid-forties, but he looked awful!
Even though there are a couple I'd like to repeat from Gretchen's blog -
like George Clooney and Brad Pitt - (I may be older, but my eyes still work
and I'm not dead yet!) - the last one I want to mention is Mel Gibson.
I know lately he's not been getting good press, but you all have to admit
that in his younger years he was a very good looking man! He still is -
but wear and tear are taking their toll!
Well, that's my list. It's been fun playing along. I'm sorry the
photos are at the beginning, but I'm still a rookie when it comes
to adding photos to my blog.
Thanks for letting me play.
