Buongiorno, my strawberries dipped in sugar!
It's time to share, sweet things: who was your first childhood hero?
I'm still a little bit in love with mine [since 1995]...
CAPTAIN VON TRAPP!
He sings [Edelweiss]! He dances [the Lentler]! He whipsaws his opponents with witty put downs ["You flatter me, Captain." "How clumsy of me - I meant to accuse you."]! He wrestles guns from the hands of treacherous Nazis! He carries small children over the mountains to freedom! He looks sharp in a naval uniform!
Christopher Plummer on the real Maria von Trapp:
"She came at me and said: 'Ho ho ho, Christopher, you is so much more handsome than my husband,' so I adored her for that."
That's it - my plans for tonight are postponed. Time to snuggle under the covers with a mug of hot cocoa and Irish cream, and watch The Sound Of Music!
Love, raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens xxx
