For dinner, I had a fresh-from-the-garden tomato sandwich with Helmann’s mayonnaise, sea salt and cracked pepper with deviled eggs on the side.
After dinner, I visited Pinterest. This is something I don’t often do because I could get sucked in the vortex and never come up for air, but here’s a few photographs from the photography section that made me smile.

Someone was watching us eating our lunch today. Luckily, the camera was right on the table, and it had the macro lens on it. The little scamp was so intent on watching my husband eat that he let me come right up to him and shoot this through the window.
Then we set George out on him and he dashed away.
Last night, I watched an Ed Burns movie on Netflix. Nice Guy Johnny wasn’t a great film by any stretch of the imagination but it did have several really good things going for it. One was the location. A Long Island native, Burns shot several scenes in The Hamptons. I really enjoyed the soundtrack which introduced me to an artist named PT Walkley, who wrote and performed all of the music in the film.
The premise for the movie: Johnny Rizzo (Matt Bush) is about to trade his dream job in talk radio for some snooze-ville gig that'll pay enough to please his fiancée. Enter Uncle Terry (played by Burns), a rascally womanizer set on turning a weekend in the Hamptons into an eye-opening fling for his nephew. Nice guy Johnny's not interested, of course, but then he meets the lovely Brooke, who challenges Johnny to make the toughest decision of is life. From IMBD
Kerry Bishe plays Brooke, who lights up every scene she’s in. An absolute delight, down to her vintage convertible and her goldenrod wool sweater. You can check out samples of the soundtrack here:

My faves: Aquarius, Why, Forgiven, Save The World
And, if you have a moment, listen to PT Walkley’s rendition of Round Here, written by Counting Crows frontman, Adam Druitz.

And that’s what makes me smile today.
