I love when the hotties are at least close to my age. Boy, he looks good.

Beth said...

THIS is one I can totally agree on....yummy. That voice is pure velvet and the eyes are magnetic, and he was the very best thing about "Hope Floats."

You got good taste, chica!

On the first day of taking Amitiza, the majority of people had a bowel movement.

You didn't so much want birthday wished in the previous blog post, so here they are in this one: "Happy Birthday".

As for "Jr", yes this one where I know who he is, and I've seen ID4.

Anything you put Harry Connick Jr. on I will be a fan of, for life, probably. Excellent choice.

I got it on clue #2

Another movie: His voice is featured in the animated film "The Iron Giant"

His father, Harry Connick, Sr. was the long-time district attorney in New Orleans.

His wife, former Victoria's Secret model Jill Goodacre, also has a prominent parent, sculptor Glenna Goodacre, whose works include the statue dedicated to the nurses of the Viet Nam War, at "the Wall", here in Washington.

Another grrrrrreat choice for HDH
