The middle of October is always a sobering time for me. The weather turns colder and wetter–necessitating switching seasonal clothes around in the closets–and my husband keeps pushing for us to buy snow tires for our car. Mid October is also a time of remembrance for me, which makes me a little teary eyed–especially on this day, around 9:50am.
You see, I shared everything with my Mom. But even though she has been gone more than half my life now, I still miss her terribly. And I like to believe that I might have been able to jolt Mom out of her long running Perry Como crush and turned her on to Richard Armitage, if I had been given that chance. Ha! Because, I think she would have admired Mr. Armitage’s story telling as I do.
Besides, Richard Armitage’s deep velvety baritone voice is a wondrous sound–speaking or singing. So here is Richard Armitage singing for us to enjoy again in the video below by bccmee, “The Hobbit – Misty Mountain Song Music Video with Lyrics”:
And oh yeah, Mom would have liked Richard Armitage’s gentlemanly demeanor and kind face, too. So, here is one of the lovely very large Richard Armitage portraits shared on RANet yesterday–for my Mom to see from heaven.
