Paul Newman Day

Can you believe Paul Newman Day is already here?  It seems like just when I get all my Paul Newman Day decorations put away, it's time to bring them back out.  I know this can be a stressful time of year.  Sometimes it's hard to find the perfect Paul Newman Day gift for that special someone.  That's why I think we should all take a moment to remember the true meaning of this day. 

During our last road trip I read a book called Paul and Me: Fifty-three Years of Adventures and Misadventures with My Pal Paul Newman by A.E. Hotchner.  Ridiculously long book titles aside, this was a fantastic read.  I really gained a new appreciation for Mr. Newman and everything he stood for.  It was a delightful story and a real tear-jerker. (Spoiler alert: he dies.)  After reading about the kind of person he was I feel certain that if he were to see this picture, he would let a few swears slip.

Happy Paul Newman Day to you and yours!

I don't know which I love more - Paul Newman, or your Paul Newman Day celebrations. One day I'll have to commission a picture of me with Paul. That would be a happy Paul Newman day indeed!

I'm just trying to figure out if that is your whole body or if you inserted your head. Do you own a pink pleated dress?!!!

Paul Newman is okay. I am all about Cary Grant. :)

Of course I have a pink pleated dress! Don't you?

Cary Grant is awesome. I'm thinking of doing a whole series of photos of me with hot dead guys. I'll add him to the list.

But seriously, Paul Newman is SOOOOO much more than "okay."

The two of you make such a lovely couple. I hope Jeff can withhold his jealousy.

Jeff, oddly enough, is not jealous of a dead guy. He does think I'm a bit off my rocker, though.
