Black & White Wednesday: My hero's hero

Although this won't reflect well on my "wifery" skills...
am hoping it will aid in purging the guilt.
 Have been in that holy state of matrimony for almost 8 years now and until this past Saturday,
could not have told you who my Sugar's hero(es) is.
Shoot, didn't even know he had one!
(bowing head in abject shame)

After learning who it is, I must say my heart swelled with pride and my Sugar solidly moved into position as one of my heroes.
One sure can tell a lot about an individual by examining their hero(es)...who they look up to...who they admire...who they pattern themselves after.
We should all have one hero, at the least.

    A family man.
    A man's man.
    A hero.

    In order to make the Colonel stand out...
    though if you ask me, he accomplishes that quite well himself!
