Today I'm going to be frivalous and talk about heart throbs.
But I’m not going to pull out my usual pictures of George Clooney, Patrick Dempsey, Andy Whitfield, David Gandy, or my secret sweaty crush Sawyer from Lost.
Oh no. I want to take you back. Way…………back.
No, not to the teenage years of sticking posters of pop bands on the wall. (Iliked Spandau Ballet with their dodgy outfits and hairdos).
I’m going to look at a few popular heroes from years gone by.
Let’s start with Sunday morning television.
Who remembers this?
Doesn’t everyone? Let’s not talk about his hair. How many women at the time saw this man and their heart fluttered? How many thought of him as a hero? How many loved the family values of the show? The way he would defend his family and friends? Maybe our old fashioned hero isn’t so different from the modern day heroes we try and capture in our books?
Anyone want to admit who their childhood hero was?
