I told you I'd write about some of the men who influenced
my life in one way or another, so here's just a few of them:
The only thing I can say about any woman in the 60's and
70's who didn't drool over Robert Redford is WHAT'S
WRONG WITH YOU! Ha ha. Not really. Well maybe. I
loved him! I had every article that had anything about him in
it, and lots and lots of magazine pictures of him. The best
part about him is I think he's still gorgeous and he's still
He's all about conservation and preserving the West and
that's a huge plus for me. Kudos, Mr. Redford. I still love
I just recently joined the Business of Fashion website and I
read his story.
Did you know that he was bankrupt at one time and made an
enormous comeback. I like most everything he designs and
his latest commercial is so sexy to me. His designs are just
full of swag and cool, and that's what attracts me to them.
While doing the research on him to write this article I
found out that he's in a same sex marriage. This is not in line
with what my vision of him was, which made me kinda sad,
but I still love his work.
Walter Cronkite was such a commanding presence in the
news for so many years. He had a way about him that was so
professional yet you could see how personal his take on every
story was. His voice was one that you just didn't want to
miss. He would end all of his broadcast with the words, "And
that's the way it is" And you just knew, that indeed,
that was the way it was.
Favorite All Time NFL Player
I love Peyton Manning! but I have to say that my all time
favorite NFL player has to be retired, Baltimore Raven, #52,
Ray Lewis. The power that he exuded on and off the field was
just mind blowing.
I miss him. I think he does commentary now.
Not sure because all we have are local channels and I
believe he's on ESPN.
Favorite All Time Bands
KANSAS, THE EAGLES, AND AEROSMITH
I couldn't have just one band as my favorite because I grew
up listening to so much great music that I picked my top 3. I
have to make a confession right now that might get me beat
up but I'm still going to say it. I didn't really care for The
Beatles. Surprising, right? I just didn't like their style or their
songs that much.
I did however love Kansas, The Eagles, and Aerosmith.
Steven Tyler was just too sexy when we were young. He had a
way about him when he preformed that drew me in.
I'm going to have to make separate posts about the other
subjects I promised to talk about because this one became so
long. The more I thought about them, the more I wanted to
say about them.
I hope you enjoyed reading about some of the men that
inspired me and had and still have an impact on my life.
Thanks guys. ;)
