Batman buzz, burglary and RA’s benevolent heart, oh my!



And the buzz continues about our boy being a possible contender for the role of Batman. Whether or not he gets it or even wants it or whether or not the fans want him to do it, I do think the fact his name and face are being bandied about by more and more media outlets,, including some pretty reputable ones, can only be a positive thing in the long run.  A little thing called “free publicity.” 😉



And this showed up on twitter today from an organization that supports those battling a severe form of skin disease  . . . bless RA’s sweet, benevolent heart!

Here in the office today we were excited to receive Butterfly Wishes from ‘The Hobbit’ star, Richard Armitage!  Thank u


And the burglary? Well, thieves drove up in the front yard of the old farmhouse a couple of days ago, kicked in the side door, rifled through drawers and stole some items.  Benny discovered this yesterday when he went down there to get the mower from the old chicken coop and saw the door standing open (there is a glass storm door on the outside).  It made me positively sick at heart to find out someone had invaded my childhood home. I felt violated, sick, sad and angry. Made me feel like siccing these guys on them.




The good news is they caught the people responsible. It appears to be a burglary ring based in the neighboring county that has targeted several houses in the area and then crossed the line to hit the farmhouse. A woman who was part of it attempted to pass a check at a grocery store from my late father’s bank account. Not a wise move. Turns out there is also a meth lab involved and several folks got arrested. There’s burglary and forgery and drug manufacturing charges all pending . . .  I only wish whoever broke in had fallen through the hole in the kitchen floor and ended up taking a swim in the cellar. *evil grin* Except they would have probably sued us.

And now, I must go toss together a salad to go with the chicken parmesan for supper. Love, love to all!

  1. So glad they caught the people responsible! I saw the butterfly wishes on FB…riches the heart and raises awareness :). Enjoy your dinner – sounds yummy!

    • Me, too, I had no idea it would be this quick. And dinner was yummy. Now Benny is playing with the house’s surveillance system and I am getting a dose of ear-splitting alarm. *cringe*

      • Better the test of the ear-splitting alarm than another band of nasties break in! I’m glad Benny’s on the case. Part of me wishes that the nasties had fallen into the cellar, right on top of a pissed-off rattlesnake or two. One look into the cellar, you call the coroner, Sir Benny shoots the snake(s), problem solved. I can be evil that way; mercy eludes me when I think of the kind of creatures who invade homes like that, of the violations they commit, of the harm that they do without remorse. If they are willing to do this, would they have second thoughts about hurting or killing someone who happened to be home when they tried it?

        I wish I could be more kind and forgiving as Richard asks us to be. His thoughtfulness and charity are beautiful.

        Even though I would rather see Richard in other roles, he would make a beautiful dark knight of Gotham, wouldn’t he? In real life, he does a lot of good without benefit of disguise, batmobile, or techno-whiz-bang stuff.

  2. Ha! Ha! Those evil doers! They will never win against the postive energy sent from Armitage Army! I wish they’d fallen the cistern. The one the Sheriff of Nottingham crawled out of. xoxoxo

  3. Wouldn’t he make the sexiest batman EVER! One big disadvantage though – you don’t normally see his face too often – but I love the cape! If he is going to play it, there should be more Bruce Wayne and less masked Batman in it!!

  4. Sorry you had to go through something like this, Angie, but very happy to hear that they’ve already caught the culprits–hope they keep them locked up for a long, long time, the jerks.

    As for our boy–Richard is such an angel. Sometimes I still expect someone to photograph his back and we’ll see the shadow of wings.

    • You and me both on the locking them up a good long time. There are multiple charges including burglary, vandalism, forgery (possibly identity theft) and running a meth lab . . . so I high hopes in that direction. 😉

      That’s why I like to do photo edits suggesting a certain heavenly connection there. 😉

  5. Can you believe some people have commented that he is too ugly to play Batman / Bruce Wayne – makes me lol. Also I see comments that he apparently looks too European – this also seems like nonsense to me.

    • Too ugly??? What’s their idea of handsome and rugged, Justin Beiber? LOL As for too European, boy, what about all these other folks from across the pond cast as American-based super heroes–Andrew Garfield, Henry Cavill, Christian Bale . . . nope, don’t buy it. Hmmmmm, too handsome to play Thorin and too ugly to play Batman, poor guy just doesn’t have anything going for him, does he? 😉

      • Teeheeheee! No, there’s no pleasing some people, especially those with no taste. If Richard were to play Batman/Bruce Wayne, they’d sell a lot more tickets to those of us who normally wouldn’t go near that franchise.

      • I don’t get the American definition of handsome and rugged anyway–the sexiest man of the year is Channing Tatum? On what planet? He’s okay, I guess–but he’s certainly no Richard Armitage (not that anyone is–except the genuine article, of course).

    • Sacrilege!!!! UGLY???? Frankly, he’s far too beautiful and delicious to spend a large part of a movie in a batmask and voluminous cape.

  6. sorry to hear about the burglary but very pleased to hear the police caught the buggers. My robbers are unlikely to be caught as they wore gloves but I am pretty convinced they came back on Saturday night – the dog went ballistic at 2.53am (and she’s usually good at night – even identifying the sound of my teens staggering in at ungodly hours and not barking) . mr Bolly looked out the window to see a removals van driving off at speed. Now as we live in a very quiet street, I’m suspicious. Hopefully they heard the dog and have now decided against coming back.

  7. Angie, we were burgled once, as well. NOT a childhood home. My costume jewelry was taken (not being a jewel-wearing/ diamonds are a girl’s best friend person, minor stuff – just invasion of privacy and – home invasion feeling…) Quite different from your experience. Just very pleased the perpetrators were identified. Best to you and family, including all those family four-footers.
