So -- who's going on the William Marshal tour?? For those who don't know, Elizabeth Chadwick is leading the tour and it looks like the dates are Oct. 8-17. We just need a brilliant fundraising scheme -- something fun and preferably legal and ethical as well (though I can be flexible). Ideas??

We need to make up a calendar "Historical Hunks Through the Ages" and sell it.  I nominate Letty to find the pictures we should use.  Beefcake is legal, right??

Calendar's not a bad idea. Winning the lottery would help as well, or there's no hope for me.

Okay -- for starters, we already have Richard Sharpe...

sharpe 3

...and Viggo has to be somewhere, probably Uhtred...

...and, of course, Letty's guy goes somewhere (I think Justin's a good choice)...

See, Letty, I'll be a good assistant -- you gotta pick me!

What about Orlando Bloom?  He could cover blacksmith, pirate Trojan prince and elf categories?  Though Viggo and Sean Bean do make my heart go pitter patter the most.

My pirate is my current fave, He could be Helen Hollick's Jessimine Acorn,  This is who EC see's as William Marshall    They are from my face book album entitled:  Excuse me is my cougar showing?

Thanks Cheryl -- it's really a hardship to comb through these pictures, but I am willing to make the sacrifice for the good of the HF Forum.

LOL @ Bonnie.

Okay, the cat just cracked me up.

I love Deb's initiative!  Very nice.  And yes, Letty's FB album is drool-worthy.devil

 

I think John Abraham would make a good Crispin Guest!

I have to share, my dear friend saw the photo I put on my FB album of Viggo he commented that Viggo is a neighbor of his and he sees him all the time.

oooh Letty-that's cool! 

 

K, sign me up for a calendar....geez-these are nice.  Can we have JR Meyers as Henry VIII somewhere?  Never thought he looked like Hal at all-but lord, I loved watching him smoulder and swagger....

And Sean's gotta be in there somewhere-in that lil Trojan skirt-thingy.....

LOL Cheryl, my friend Jimmy ain't to bad either, he has aged beautifully.  I know your not a huge fan of Outlander but Jimmy is 6'3' red head verra much a Jamie Fraser type.

Jan JR is a hottie, and a fine actor.  He is a great villian,  He could also be a young Edward I

We need to maybe do a Historical Bad Boys calendar as well.

Oh Letty I loved the first 3 books of Outlander and Jamie is a dreamy hunk of a man.  I just didn't like the last few books and hated the last one.
