What is it about a double breasted wool “pea coat” that barely covers the bum/tush–no warmth for the legs either–that inspires such interest? I’m not sure. Ha! But the pea coat–and this particular wearer, referred to colloquially as “RA”–has a certain “je ne sais quois?” about them [(2)].
If you would like to see some of this pea coat whimsy in evidence, then you might visit the delightful and creative new blog by ItsJSforme called “Do I Have a Blog?” [(3a)]. Her December 26, 2011 post with amusing tableaux of Lucas and Sir Guy action figures is priceless! Here is another pose of Lil Lucas [(3b) left]. Her blog is linked to the right in my blog roll of Richard Armitage blogs and here also is that link for you: http://doihaveablog.wordpress.com/
So for fun, here is a collage of Lucas North/Richard Armitage pea coat images A through E [(4) below] that I created with sample captions for our CRAzy Captioning activity today. Please suggest your own captions as well for each image. If you click on the image, it will enlarge and you can save it to your computer. Enjoy!
My grateful thanks to RANEt (www.RichardArmitageNet.net) for their wonderful picture resources [(4) above].

P.S. For next week’s Fun Day Sunday on January 29th, we’ll be doing another humorous Richard Armitage and British themed “Mad Lib” activity. So, I need your help and input with that ahead of time. Please comment to this post by 12 midnight your time on Thursday January 26th with your suggestions for each of the following categories:
1) proper name (of a real person or a character)–such as Margaret Thatcher, Sir Guy of Gisborne
2) noun–such as cell phone, eyes, glove, tattoo, spider, jelly
3) verb–such as run, play, shoot, love, betray
4) adjective or adverb–such as tall or wonderfully tall, blue, muscular
5) Richard Armitage character dialogue quote (only one to three sentences, or a phrase please; and please indicate its origin): such as “You’re coming home with me?” (North & South) or “My Dear Delight” (Venetia)
You’ll recall that we had great fun with Jazzbaby1’s suggestion of “platypus” last time around. So feel free to think humorously. Giggles!
