So, my husband hijacked my laptop . . .


Bearded Armitage

Movie Star Armitage

Boyish Armitage.

Hmmmmm. Is Richard getting ready to "walk like an Egyptian?"

But it was for a good reason. He says he told me he was taking it to install the Adobe Elements software for our upcoming adult ed class–yes, finally I am going to learn how to use Photoshop, so watch out!–do some updates and run virus scans.

(I don’t need the Geek Squad. I have a one-man version in my bed. Love ya, hon.) 😉

I have absolutely no memory of Spouse entering the room, speaking to me or of me telling him, “Take the cat with you” (said cat had been cuddled at my side for hours whilst I caught up on my sleep and surely needed a bathroom/food break). I guess I was well and truly out of it.

It took quite a while for everything to finish, but I finally have my trusty Toshiba back. I have a lot of catching up to do later today, as I think I am going to have to rest up some more.

Thanks to all who have stopped in and to those who commented whilst I was “away from my desk.” You’re swell! 🙂
Of course, I can’t leave this post without some RA goodness, from boyish charm to mature masculine beauty. Enjoy!! (All screencaps/photos courtesy of RANet)

I'm an LA native--Lower Alabama, that is. My husband of more than 30 years and I live here on a portion of my family's former farm with two gorgeous calicos and a handsome GSD mix. My background is art education, and over the years I've been a teacher, department store photographer, sales associate and a journalist. My husband, his business partner and I have Pecan Ridge Productions, a video production company, for which I shoot & edit video and stills and manage marketing. I also still write part-time for the local paper. I love movies, music, art, photography and books, and my tastes in all of them are eclectic.

  1. I’m so happy you’re attending an adult ed class. I’m a firm believer in learning new things no matter what stage of your life you are at. Hence working full time, getting my fashion design degree and now my masters in American culture. I feel if I stop, I’l be going backwards 😉

    • I believe in life-long learning, too. 😀 There are people out there well into adulthood who have never picked up another book to read since high school. Magazines, maybe–but not a book.
      And that, to me, is tragic.
      Richard seems like something who is very keen to keep learning and growing and that’s something I admire. I have a delightful friend in her 80s who started taking painting classes in her 70s. She had taken and enjoyed art classes when she was younger, and then got away from it for many years whilst raising her family. Today she paints some of the loveliest icons you could imagine and still travels out of town to attend workshops to help improve her skills.

      When Hurricane Katrina took off part of the roof of her church, she took its displaced shingles and painted angels with a inspirational quote on each of the salvaged shingles. These were sold to raise funds to help repair the church roof.
      I have one she gave me as a gift. I will always prize it.

  2. Angie, can’t you clone your husband and send him “the duplicate” over to Hungary to help me sort out my IT problems? 😉 Cheers! 🙂

  3. I want a Benny, too!

    Oh, those photos! I don’t know what I love more – the beard or the really closely clean-shaven look.

    The stubble is sexy but the idea of his clean-shaven cheek or the soft bearded one rubbing up against my own sends huge shivers down my spine! Ah…a girl can dream…no matter how old she gets!

    • I will check into the possibility of cloning Benny. 😉 And I agree–one should never stop dreaming or appreciating beauty. My mom was still able to appreciate a handsome man right into her 80s.

  4. Just noticed on the first pic he’s wearing the watch on his right wrist as left-handers do, whereas he normally wears it on his left wrist (see last pic). Maybe the bearded beauty photoshoot was sponsored by a watch manufacturer? 🙂

        • Do you have any other lefties in your immediate family? I am the only one in my family. My maternal grandmother was left-handed and my mom’s youngest sister is, and she married a left-handed man, but both their children are right-handed. I used feel like the odd man out as a child, but as I got older, I realized a lot of people see lefties as being more intelligent and creative than right-handers 😉 and I started feeling good about being different.

          • One of my nephews is a lefty. Everybody else is (was) right-handed. Yes, I heard it too that lefties are supposed to be more creative than righties, but unfortunately it’s not true in my case.:(
