As children, my siblings and I went trick-or-treating every Halloween until about age 12 or so. That was not unusual. However, we had the bright idea of also going door-to-door every November 1st, and when the surprised homeowner greeted us, we shouted, “Trick-or-treat for leftovers!” True story. We actually got a lot of candy that way! Some of our neighbors were relieved to get rid of their extra goodies. 😛
Hope you are enjoying your Halloween. Today’s animated gif scene selection comes to us from Jeannie Gisborne. Hmmm, I wonder if she is related to Sir Guy in some way? 😉
As you have noticed, I have a thing for Richard Armitage characters in doorways. Apparently, I am not alone. There are also those who admire his hands. Jeannie appreciates both!
Jeannie wrote, “Yes, something about Richard in doorways! May I suggest Guy with hands, fingers. Richard has such wonderful hands and fingers and he is so expressive with them.” Jeannie was then kind enough to link the pictures from RichardArmitageNet.Com of her choice of scenes.
The scene comes from Robin Hood season 1, episode 12, when Guy is breaking down his door to get to the Nightwatchman, who is stealing his treasure. This is followed by Guy stabbing the Nightwatchman as “he” makes his getaway.
Therefore, today’s graphic involves hands and a doorway! And some blood. 😮
Here is your animated gif:
Thanks for your excellent suggestion, Jeannie! Clearly, the axe-wielding sequence is based on The Shining, starring Jack Nicholson. That must have been fun for Richard Armitage to re-enact. The captions “Here’s Gizzy!” and “Gotcha!” seemed to write themselves.
This wraps up our lovely month-long animated gif challenge! A huge thanks to all of you for participating by reading, submitting ideas, tweeting, facebooking, commenting, etc. I’m thrilled that 31 of you were able to design the month’s worth of graphics. If you were too late with your submission, please do not despair. There will be more challenges in the future.
Remember, if you are ordering anything from Amazon UK or US, whether it is Richard Armitage related or not, a commission will be donated to charity if you make your purchase through the links at RichardArmitageNet.Com.
One final note: Tune in tomorrow for a debriefing session and a few announcements. Again, have a happy Halloween!
P.S. Do you think one of the reasons I have a “thing” for doorways is because of the rewards of candy by going trick-or-treating door-to-door?
