Oddball Things I’m In Love With This Summer

Happy August! It’s the final stretch of summer and I’m proud to say my entertainment has been that of the unique and charming. I owe a lot of this to the influence of my twelve-year-old son who spends most of his day imitating a young man named Toby Turner. If you have no idea who he is, it is my mission to change that.

Please see my first exhibit and current guilty pleasure–

Love TechnicallyNext I have a young man named Sark who’s geeky and he knows it from the smartest, sexiest read of my summer–

Sometimes your eyes need a break from all the pint-sized viewing of You Tube videos on iPads and so you take a good, old fashioned, large screen TV break and stumble upon a great indy movie you’d otherwise never have known about. Whew, that was a mouthful. Now here’s an eyeful of an endearing, heart-string tugging young man I recently discovered via Showtime–

4 Edward's KillerNothing, and I do mean nothing, tops a visit to my hometown in the summer if you’re looking for Smart and Sexy. And that is all due to the one and only–

I couldn’t be wrapped up and falling in love with all this off-the-wall stuff at a better time. It’s been great inspiration for the long, lanky sweetheart of my current work in progress, Benny!

That’s it! My perfect oddball summer of discovery in a nutshell. Did you fall in love with something new and unexpected these last couple months? I’d love to hear it. Have a great August, fishy friends!

Fishy kisses,

  1. Fell in love with my new CJ guitar pick necklace. I wear it close to my heart for CJ’s talent & love of music just like my father JC so many years ago! It’s my JC pick I never got. Can’t wait to read all about Big Hearted Benny next! 😉

  2. Carlene,
    I haven’t really fallen in love with anything, but your post was so cute. My daughter Kaitlin and I watched the videos here this morning with our coffee, and it made us smile. 🙂 She loved your sketch, too–from one artist to another. She says to tell you hi.
    Thanks for always making me smile.
