Found: Hero and Heroine

The world is governed more by appearance than realities so that it is fully as necessary to seem to know something as to know it. ~Daniel Webster

Thanks for everyone's input for pictures of my hero! I had a wonderful time looking at some yummy pix...and I did use your input, but in a backwards sort of way.

Ceri suggested Christian Bale. When I pulled him up at IMdB, he popped up with another guy who was perfect.

Brandon Routh:



He's still a little too handsome for what I had in mind, but I'll deal with that because, overall, he's right on.

For my heroine, I kept envisioning Jenny Crusie. I knew she wasn't quite right, but she was close - I wanted an older, moderately plump blonde. This morning I had a brainstorm (thanks to Grand Ole Opry).

Trisha Yearwood:



Now I just need to cast the secondary folks: Kate, Pete and Dan.

And the dog. And the chickens. And figure out where I'm setting it (right now, I'm saying they live in Podunk, PA, but that should probably change).

Ah... what joy...

Glad I could help you out and lead you to Mr Right. He's cute.

And Trisha is just about one of my favorite singers. Great choice!!

Is there really a Podunk?

I think you could some amusing mileage out of calling the town Podunk. If you wanted, that is. :)

I loved Brandon Routh since I saw him in Superman over the summer...yummy! Then I read somewhere that Atlas Shrugged is one of his favorite books - and it's one of my top 5, so I was definitely in love!

Interesting combination, the younger guy and the mature heroine. I'll be interested to see what brings them, and keeps them, together.

Hi Marianne,

Great that you found your hero image. I am sending this with the new blog I just opened to test it out. I have some things to learn and iron out still. Hope you don't mind me doing a test on your blogger site. I spent a long time learning how to down-size a photo.
