Author Carl Hiaasen Presents ...
Laughing Out Loud for Literacy.
A Celebrity Book Auction.
Over 70 celebrities have signed a beloved childhood book and contributed it to this one-time only event for Hibiscus Children's Center and Literacy efforts for abused and neglected children.
Some of the celebrities ...
"The White House" A pop-up book President Obama
"Little house in the Big Woods"
First Lady, Laura Bush
"King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table"
Senator John McCain
Other celebrities names ...
Senator Ted Kennedy and his dog
and ... Drum roll please ...
"Lord of the Flies"
It was a local event held at the Elliott Museum ... and he was fussed over and treated like a celebrity!
The fun part for me was to mingle through the crowd hearing people whisper among their friends, "Stephen Bonanno's here!" ... yeah, my "big celebrity" brother. LOL

The SBS dogs.
Rippy, our Scottish terrier and her cousin Sugar, Stephen's mix Terrier breed.
Here in a moment of sweetness.
They love to play and live to destroy every toy we give them at the factory. Thank goodness they haven't discovered the delicious flavor of leather ... yet.

Sometimes (okay, every day) I take my shoes off at the front door when I get home and I don't put them away. Eventually I'll trip or stub my toe or just become completely disgusted by the mess, and I'll clean them up. --Lisagh

Having more free time these days (believe it or not), I've started a personal blog.
"He likes Grape Soda, I love Carrot Juice"
How two people who are so alike can be so different when it comes to food.
It's a diet journal of our on going struggle to beat the battle of the bulge, eat well (or not), keep our weight down and the attempts to stay active.
In case there is someone out there in sandal land who can relate to turning 50, working way too many hours and finding themselves too tired to do anything but veg on the sofa ... we invite you to follow along in our journey to better health (or not).
Vivian and Domenick

Lisa, thank you for making Stephen Bonanno Sandals a part of a very special day. Congratulations!
Love the pic. -- Vivian

Hi Vivian and Domenick,
I snapped this photo on Nantucket's Siasconset Beach about 60 seconds after my boyfriend of 5 years proposed with my grandmother's engagement ring. He was perplexed about why I insisted on a photo of my sandals (which I adore nearly as much as my new fiance) at that special moment!

For our annual "end of summer" SALE we decided to do a radio spot instead of a newspaper AD.
When we found out we could actually record it ourselves, we jumped at it.
Heading to the station to record his radio spot ...
Quiet on the set. He's recording and sounds so good.
I wish I knew how to link the radio spot to the blog, but I don't ... You'll just have to take my word for it. Domenick sounded like a pro! Thank you Jay for making it so much fun for our first time.
