My dad loved The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Every time we came across one of the Rings movies on TV, Meg and I would joke that my dad was probably watching.
And more times than not, he was.
The man loved him some hobbits. He even told us one time that he'd like to be a hobbit. He figured the shire looked like the perfect place to live.
One of the last Christmas presents my siblings and I gave him was a boxed set of the Rings blu-rays, and the look on his face was priceless. The man was happy to have the shire and those hobbits at his beck and call, and on his prized flat screen, no less.
My dad's been gone a couple years now, but I still think of him every time I see one of the movies on TV. I haven't seen The Hobbit yet, but Meg and I will watch it with the girls soon. I know it will make me think of my dad, so I know I'll love it.
Any movies remind you of loved ones?
