How can a five year old love Tarzan?
Hmmm, maybe it was young Jai that got me hooked at the time.
When the re-runs started and I was old enough to appreciate older men, Ron Ely as Tarzan was my eye candy and infatuation du jour.
I loved his style, his voice and it was while watching the show with the nuns that I learned "Bringing in the Sheeves" or whatever that hymnal song was. I enjoyed the one where they were in some type of temple or paramid and he had to swim under water to escape. The plots were fantastical and there never was a steady female character to threaten my fantasies.
This is all from memory from *ahem* a LONG time ago.
How did I get on this topic?
I was cruising my on-line library catalog to look up Xanadu and ended up with a reference to Ron Ely and a mystery book about a investigator named Jack Sands. Turns out Ron is alive and well and an AUTHOR!!!
Am I going to be checking out his books? You bet!
Do you not even know who Ron Ely is? How handsome he was in his loin cloth?
Oooh, Click here to see his yumminess .....
See this pic with with the knife attached to his hip? Modern guys have replaced it with the CELL PHONE!!
Hmmm, Techno Tarzan - what a concept.
Do you have a favorite Tarzan???
