Thanks to Armitagina and Cyn for the link to exquisitely talented British actor Richard Armitage’s (in selfie at right) Facebook page with his latest message of thanks to his fans!
And great thanks to Amazing Grace B for putting Richard’s message in jpg form (below)!
My comment on Richard’s lovely Facebook post thanked him for the updates and his thoughtfulness to his fans. As one who sent him something once years ago—from my Melissa the Mouse character who has been dormant for a while, along with a note in her rhyming verse—I also mentioned that his family probably gets a giggle out of some of the more goofy things he receives. I also think that it’s wonderful that he doesn’t farm out the task of sorting through his fan mail to a paid staff, but rather his family handles it—it keeps it personal, as he says above.
And I truly appreciate that he passes along the gifts to those in need—either the item itself or if it is a nicer homemade gift like a quilt or something, to charity for auction. That means that our gifts keep on giving. Hugs!
P.S. My eyes are getting a bit wonky/blurry on Sunday Oct. 2nd afternoon with eyestrain as I was trying to write/edit the next story chapter 8 of my original historical fiction Regency romance “Encouragement”. So I need to rest my eyes tonight/Sunday—by listening again to Richard Armitage’s audiobook reading of Georgette Heyer’s story “Sylvester”—a tale of how writing a story drawing upon characters in real life can get you into trouble. Ha! So the above post is my sharing for Monday. I hope to have the next story chapter 8 finished and up on Wednesday. Thanks for understanding. Cheers! Grati ;->
