Johnny or Paul......

While watching AMC last night, they showed  a commercial for their Saturday morning shows, one of which happened to be the old Rifleman show from the 60's starring Chuck Connors and Johnny Crawford which brought back a whole lot of memories.  This is where I admit that I was indeed, a teenager in the infamous 60's.  Back then, you were either a surfer or a hippie. Growing up in Southern CA, I was more beach chick then hippie but that's not to say I didn't wear "bell bottom" pants or "mini" skirts!  I'm getting off the subject a bit, the whole point is that back then,  you were either in "love" with  Johnny Crawford who starred in the western, The Rifleman or Paul Peterson who starred in The Donna Reed Show.   For me, it was Johnny all the way!  As I think about it now, Paul is more my style in looks but back then, Johnny just had that something that did it for me!  We never missed an episode of either show!
Johnny's character on the show was rugged,  (who doesn't look good in a tight pair of jeans and a cowboy hat),  hardworking, polite, always tried to do the right thing, could ride a horse, was kind of shy when it came to the girls, and, a all around good guy. 
Paul, starred on the Donna Reed show which was more in our time.  He was a kakie pants and button up shirt kind of guy, which, don't get me wrong, is also very appealing.  His character was sweet in a goofy kind of way, always in and out of trouble, (nothing serious) with his Mom and Dad, often annoying to his big sister.   As he got older,  he was more into getting his driver's license, dating girls and hanging out, but also a good guy.  
As both stars older, they put out records and were on the covers of all the in teen magazines at the time.  It's kind of interesting if you think about it, how different times were then, they never made headlines for drinking or drugs, never got arrested for drunk driving, never wore their pants down around their knees, and always wore their shirts.  Quite a change from the star antics of today.  So......for those of you who remember, which one made your heart throb, Johnny or Paul?



Till next time....
This week I will be partying at:

 I don't know if you've noticed or not, but all my followers have disappeared under my Follower gadget!  Has this happened to anyone else?  If so how did you or do you know how to fix it?!  I have not been able to find any info on what to do to get them back.   When I go into design, they are all still there, they just don't show up on my blog!  Oh dear, what to do!  If any of you can help,  (with very basic instructions, I'm not very computer savvy), I'd really appreciate it!
Till next time.....
