Some hearts & flowers for Hump Day


That’s what we call Wednesday in the U.S. It’s the middle of the week and only two days away from Guyday Friday.  I have had a whole 3.5 hours of sleep. I may snooze this afternoon at the hair salon. I always get sleepy when I am being pampered.

Benny and I will both be getting our tresses trimmed. He’s tired of his John Standring curls–well, it is summer and hot weather and he’d like a cooler ‘do–and I’ve got sheep dog bangs and tons of white roots and I surely am NOT old enough to have so much of God’s platinum blonde hair just yet, am I? Well, I like to think so, anyway.  Although, if I don’t get more sleep, I fear I am going to look old enough for every white strand.

At any rate, here’s some images with a “hearts and flowers” feel to them. More fun with various free photo editors along with Photoshop Elements. I hope you all enjoy.  Visit fun.pho.to, photofunia,  photofunny.net or photo fun box to create your own giggles and pretty images.

Two weeks from today I will be flying to San Diego for Comic-Con International. In fact, right about now I should be at Dannelly Field in Montgomery getting ready to board the plane to Atlanta. Thank you to all who have supported my fund for the trip. While I earned the reporter position with Comic Book Resources through my experience and writing samples,  I would never have been able to make the trip without the financial aid of my fellow RA bloggers and fans. 

For those who still wish to donate, the button is still up. And Dawn still offers these lovely winged heart necklaces which she will make to order for you.  You can also purchase them through the PayPal button and send me your address info and the specified necklace length.

This charming little sterling silver necklace can be yours for $35 including shipping, thanks to Dawn, who will make it to your specified length. A generous portion of the sale goes to my Comic-Con trip fund.

Wild Card Wednesday: Heaven knows, anything goes


Xenia mentioned ( in a comment on a previous post) artwork featuring Richard as Zorro.  And here it is!

Viva Ricardo! He would make a quite the dashing Zorro.

Not that Benedict Cumberbatch isn’t great, but I always thought Richard would make a terrific Sherlock. (courtesy of allthingsrarmitage) Elementary, my dear Watson.

How about Richard as dog lover? Maybe a veterinarian (allthingsrarmitage)

Surely we all agree with this photo manip (allthingsrarmitage)?

How about Richard as a daring 18th century highwayman? Well, I obviously like the idea. I’m writing a book. This artwork is a co-production between fedoralady and carla.

I’ve heard back from a couple of the ladies who have now received their winged heart necklaces and they are very impressed with their beauty. Asilomar makes them to order in the length you desire and a generous portion goes to my trip fund for Comic-Con. Cost is $35 which includes the cost of shipping.

Let’s talk about sex(y)


Richard Armitage is sexy. His ChaRActers are sexy. The voice, the eyes, the lips, the nose, the stubble, the jaw, the skin, the moles, the scars, the beard, the entire bod–and the beautiful, funny, sweet, intelligent, delicious soul behind it all.  The way he sounds, the way he speaks without saying a word, the way he moves. It’s all good.

So here’s some sexy for you, ladies (and any gentlemen out there) courtesy of Mr. A.

Comic-Con is coming to San Diego July 12-15! And yours truly will be there! You can help out by donating to my trip fund. And thanks!!
