Do you watch NCIS? It's a show on CBS that stars Mark Harmon as Special Agent In Charge Jethro Gibbs. NCIS is the Navy Criminal Investigation Service and Gibbs runs the show. He has a loyal team and director who is always breathing down his neck. Gibbs is the kind of guy you want on your side. He's gone to the ends of the earth to help his team and those he cares about. He's been married several times, but he never talks about his personal life. He has a tormented soul because a bad guy killed his first wife and their daughter. He likes women, but he doesn't like to admit that he's lonely and tormented. He has a definite commitment problem.
But oh, how we love him. He believes in his team and has a special place in his heart for Abby--the girl in the basement who is a computer whiz and can find any evidence to help Gibbs solve the case. Gibbs is the kind of hero that we all want to write about. He skips the fancy events but shows up for the down and dirty fights. He hates publicity but goes after the top dogs and brings them down. Gibbs makes us feel safe in a world that we know is never really safe. And isnt' that what a true hero is all about?
But as I said, Gibbs doesn't like to be in the spotlight. I had written this entire blog and went in search of a picture of Gibbs. My laptop literally locked up and I lost that post. I tried again to download a photo of the handsome, tormented Special Agent on yet another laptop. Again, it locked up and I almost lost this post. Okay, Gibbs, I get it. No photos! I told y'all the man was hard to pin down.
But I love him anyway. What do you love about Gibbs?
