RA’s Heartbreakers: Rogues, Cons & Bad Boys


Philip Durant, the husband with the roving eye and a potential murder suspect in Agatha Christie’s Ordeal by Innocence.

Lee Preston, the firty-girty lifeguard with the irresistible charm and an inability to be faithful to one woman in “Cold Feet.”

The charming Stage Door Johnny, Percy Courtenay, who swept future Edwardian musical hall star Marie Lloyd of her feet in “Marie Lloyd.”

John Mulligan, the boy from the wrong side of the tracks turned successful businessman–and, perhaps, more in :”Moving On.”

Heinz Kruger, crafty murderous spy for the evil Hydra in “Captain America.”

Percy and his angel face after shaving.

Color & Light for Tuesday


It’s not Monday but I am in the mood for Monet as portrayed by our lovely Richard in The Impressionists. I know some of you are experiencing a wet, gloomy day so perhaps a bit of our passionate painter and his lovely art would be in order? Happy Tuesday!

“Cliffs Near Dieppe” by Monet

This particular painting has been stolen and recovered twice from the Musee Des Beaux Arts in Nice.

“Irises” in Monet’s garden at Giverny

“Field of Tulips”

That sexy storyteller


I re-watched the Cbeebies earlier. Oh I love, love, love Richard as Mr. Storyteller, as I like to call him. All those delightful voices-everything from mice and dinosaurs to ghosts, witches and kiddies, talk of “cuddly monsters” (those “u” sounds get me every time) and admonishments to toys not to eat his ice cream as he waves his spoon.

He is charming and funny and sweet and endearing.

And hot.

Ah, that floppy fringe across the forehead that I am so tempted to reach out and brush back; those fitted knit tops that showcase the toned biceps, the snug jeans, the way he tucks one leg beneath him.  Those expressive eyebrows, the smiles–those eyes!

It’s very hard to keep naughty thoughts out of my head, quite frankly.

Yummy, yummy, yummy . . .
