The popularity of the pug anatomy illustration has alerted me to the Cult of Pug on tumblr, so here’s another ‘pug thing’.
Even though we don’t have a dog ( because we house-sit other people’s dogs so often!) I have a fascination for pugs. Having said that, I’m getting this keychain anyhow, because even without the puggy charm, it so perfectly describes ME.

And this is how you end up with wet knickers.

This is what I call singing! What a voice, what a sound; unplugged and unbelievably good.

I’m planning on diving into lots more Lake Street Dive on YouTube.

For once, a comment on youtube absolutely nailed it:

"This young woman is up there with Corrine Bailey Rae, Amy Winehouse, Phoebe Snow, or Rickie Lee Jones, where that soul jazz muse appears to have set up permanent residence.

What a sound too, with those harmonies and rhythm section. The risks that horn player isn’t afraid to take will pay off. The world will hear from these guys, with their pop sensibility and conservatory chops. Can’t wait to see them influence the market by lobbing acoustic skills grenades at the Clear Channel auto-tuned, banality machine.”

Fact.

A shared language assists communication. With the Canaussie though, translations are still sometimes required. For instance, he offers to ‘lift’ my food, instead of ‘serve’ it, and he says ‘meers’ instead of ‘mirrors’.
We do however, share a love of language and all its foibles. I tend to be scathingly sarcastic, whereas he is more gently so. It’s such a joy to cohabit with a cunning linguist, and yes, that’s an absolutely intentional double entendre.

It took me a while to warm to this. I guess because the ‘love story’ was from a male perspective, and because the concept initially seemed a little far-fetched.

I’m glad I hung in though, because once I’d connected I marvelled at the layers and possibilities. This is a gentle, thought-provoking - and thought requiring film - and it’s stayed with me in a way I didn’t expect.

The faces of love, whichever way you look at it.

Here’s my cute granddaughter Audrey in a photo collage my daughter created for Father’s Day.It wasn’t all sweetness and light from our almost-two-years-old toddler:"There was a little bit of ripping that may have happened which required some further photoshopping, and some letters dunked in a planter full of water but we got there in the end. Models these days!"
