Valentine's Day, Old School

I've had a lot of photo essays since beginning the blog. Most popular have been the "cute guy" posts, so I thought for Cupid's Day Out I'd put a new spin on it.

Have you ever thought about how much leading men have changed over the years?

From the smooth and suave yet manly men of the 30's and 40's...





to the powerful anti-heroes of the 50's...







the complex charmers of the 60's...






the ultra macho men of the 70's...






and the nice guy heroes of the 80's.






I love them all. And since I've never really grown up, I'll be the one to embarass myself and wish everyone a Happy VD!

Ahhhhh Cary Grant. Love those early hunks. Great pics.
And Bernita, I like men too. *sigh*.
Happy Valentine's Day.

Yummmmmmmm, pretty.

I'll have you know I was going to marry Tom Selleck.

But then he got all impatient, something about me needing to grow up because I was nine and he needed a woman close to his age and blah blah blah.

I still think he carries a torch for me.

As you keep reminding me, Missie, I'm older than you. I was 15 and thus MUCH more likely to marry Tom. Sorry to burst your little bubble.

Excuse me, but did you have a Hawaiian shirt you wore around the house while watching Magnum PI because you just KNEW that somehow Tom would know you were wearing it? Hmmmm? No, I didn't think you did.

Don't mess with me....or Tom. I will hurt you.

Silly girl. I was at least able to fill out my bikini and stay out late when he came for me in the Ferrari. Keep dreaming.

That's it. I am calling Higgins and he will open up a can of whoop-hiney on you.

*takes advantage of the bickering over Tom and quietly sneaks out the back door with Indiana while nobody is looking*

Hey! Get back here!

I'm so going to need my dvd's of the REAL Indy movies. He's planning on another even though time, that fickle witch, has not been kind. Watching Indy break a hip is not my idea of fun.

I've never heard of a Happy VD, but if you can think of one, I'll happily wish one on you, too...Oh, you mean Valentine's Day...HA.

Have to say one of my favorites was Mr. Hudson. Sadly he died of a happy VD. Sick, I'm very sick.

I almost met Tom Selleck. He heard me throw up once.

Long story.

I was with you up to Selleck. I've never liked bushy mustaches... but the rest of your hunks, I'll take one of each, please!
