A blast from the past: sexy Luke Halpin from the TV show “Flipper” ….

luke-halpin-4Hi, friends and readers:

In 1964, right after I turned thirteen, a television show called Flipper first aired. It was filmed in south Florida. The family in the show was a dad who was a park ranger and his two sons. No mom. The older son, named Sandy, was played by a young actor named Luke Halpin. (That’s him to the left.) He appeared shirtless in about 80% of his scenes, and the first time I saw him I was in love. I made sure never to miss an episode of Flipper. 

Could you blame me?

I understand that Luke Halpin is still alive, and he occasionally makes guest appearances at certain events. I wonder if Luke knows just how many gay boys’ hearts he stole, back in the days of Flipper? If you want to see more of Luke, do an image search via Google Chrome.

luke-halpin-3Well, my boyfriend has his last final exam of the semester this morning, so being the good boyfriend I am I rose at 7:30 AM to cook him a ham and cheese omelet (His favorite breakfast.) before he left for the exam. I’m sure he’ll do well on the exam; he always does. 🙂

I have a busy day ahead of me. I’ll spend my morning editing my novel-in-progress. After lunch, I’ll meet my boyfriend to have our Christmas card photo taken, and then I’ll visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming. After the “Y” I’ll hit the supermarket, not only for the usual groceries we need, but also to buy the ingredients for making Christmas cookies we will bake for our neighbors tomorrow. It’s a tradition we’ve done for several years now, and it’s always fun.

Have a nice Monday, everyone.

  1. Luke Halpin with cut off jeans or pant cuts or partial pants … for swimming, I mean … I figure that since he and his brother, et al, as they are not swimmers, as in not gym swimmers, for example, then they are to be more informal. I never think of him as sexy until years later with repeats of the become old show. [ MY first fave tv star is Chad Lowe in Spencer (tv)(1985), ‘my’ instant love on first sight. [[Now, that cannot be accurate as … shut me up ! ]]] 😉

  2. Wouldn’t you have loved to be a costume set designer on “Flipper?” All you’d have to do was to make sure that Luke and his brother wore cut-off jeans, with nary a hint of a Hanes or Fruit of the Loom waistband to be seen on either boy.
