Thanksgiving is upon us in the Colonies.
How can you NOT love a day that involves tons of great food, football games,
family and a four-day weekend with SHOPPING!?
First and foremost, there is Sir Guy of Gisborne.
Doesn’t he look pleased with himself? I am always thankful to see him briefly smug.
Please note that I took the high ground
John Porter won his own place in my Thanksgiving homage for many reasons, but primarily because
the opening scenes of Strike Back reminded me of stories my husband told about his time on board ship.
The crowded compartments and the small racks (that’s beds for you non-Navy types.)
Just like the picture... sorry. Love a man in uniform.
The white tee shirt was a United States Navy uniform requirement.
In my husband’s case, it was crew-necked and showed above the open neck of his uniform.
The subject wears it well….
Not everything I am thankful for is completely shallow.
The friends I have made through as a result of being a fan of Richard Armitage
are a source of great joy and hours of fun! The bloggers, vidders, fiction writers, proboard admins,
the UK fans who upload interviews and television for those of us otherwise deprived…
for all of you and those I haven’t met yet, I am thankful.
Since I couldn’t get you all together for a big group hug and photo op,
this photo of Richard graciously offered to stand in for us.
I am also thankful to Richard for introducing me to Bernard Cornwell,
Georgette Heyer, Inspector Lynley, and Richard Sharpe. Two authors to devour and two series to enjoy,
all because I listened to Richard’s audio works. (I already read Elizabeth George.)
I am thankful for Richard himself for so many reasons:
his talent, his choices, his good looks, encouraging his fans to give to
charities on his behalf, the voice, and more.
and Nat for the opportunity to jump into the deep end of the pool.
Happy Richard Armitage International Thanksgiving Day!
