One of the best places to find a man to marry when I was about 11, 12 and 13 years old was television, as I was still a bit too young to hit the clubs and online match making hadn't been invented yet!
|Heath, Audra, Jarrod, Victoria and Nick|
I watched that show religiously and at night time I would fall asleep dreaming of being his wife and living on The Big Valley Ranch and being best friends with his sister Audra, who was gorgeous!
The funny thing is it wasn't Lee Majors I was in love with…nope, it was Heath Barkley. When Lee did The Six Million Dollar Man television show he didn't do anything for me.
It was Heath I was in love with. Maybe it was the cowboy hat or watching him ride around on that horse, but he was just so manly!
|Nick Barkley on the left and Heath with those smoldering eyes staring right into my soul and winning my heart!|
In a pinch I would have taken his brother Nick Barkley, portrayed by Peter Breck. Nick was a bit of a bad boy, which is why I didn't love him as much as Heath, but he was just as good looking!
Then all of a sudden Heath had some competition! A new television show came on the horizon called Medical Center, which ran from 1969 to 1976. The main character was Dr. Joe Gannon.
Dr. Joe Gannon was played by the gorgeous actor, Chad Everett. He had these piercing blue eyes!
Dr. Joe Gannon was a surgeon and worked in a busy hospital somewhere in Los Angeles.
I loved that show and I loved Chad Everett and all of a sudden I knew I would have to leave The Big Valley to move to the Big City....Los Angeles to be the wife of a doctor!
I remember so well how I would just dream of both these men, it's makes me laugh now at how young and naive I was!
Who was your childhood fantasy crush? Do you remember these shows?
