Teddy, Oh Teddy!

I just love to look at old photographs. I especially enjoy looking at people wearing swim suits in old photographs. So as you can imagine, the COG's Annual Swimsuit Edition is one of my favorites.

This year, the dear and oh so talented footnoteMaven has created a COG poster with a poster boy on it, rather than a more traditional female figure. As soon as I saw it, I decided I wanted to contribute a guy pin-up pic for the COG.

I went through my various photo albums in search of the most buff guy I could find. Mind you, I'm restricting myself to "old photos", so you won't see any of my internet-acquired fab photos of Val Kilmer or Antonio Sabato Jr. here. ;-)

Here then, is the most buff guy in my photo collection. His name is Teddy. I don't know his surname. He's not a relative of mine. The person who gave me the photo didn't know Teddy's surname either. This photo was taken during the WWII years but I have no idea where. I doubt if it's the beach at Normandy {grin}, more likely it is somewhere in the Pacific Theater.

Here's a wolf whistle for you, Teddy!
