Who is the Most Awesome Person Today?

My Version of ActiveRain's Daily "Member Spotlight" (Part IV)

Who is the most awesome person today?

It's that time of the week again folks!

As promised, I've decided to make 2011 a year in which I introduce you, my dear readers, to a Rainer who you might not know, but probably should.

ActiveRain posts a "Member Spotlight" in their "Daily Drop" newsletter. This is my version...

For this week's post, that person is:

Ed Silva

Ed Silva - The Most Awesome Person of the Week!

Ed is not only a good friend and a great blogger, he's probably the most rabid UConn Husky fan I know. Ed also has a fabulous sense of humor as is clearly evidenced by his choice of hat seen in the picture above. Ed's area of service is the Waterbury. CT region, home of the Waterbury Watch company, makers of the first ever Mickey Mouse watch! And, just for the record, Mickey Mouse and Ed are not affiliated in any way. It's purely by coincidence that they both hail from Waterbury!

Ed is a father, a proud grandfather, a devoted husband to his bride of something like a half a million years, and he's my friend.

And, because he's my friend, he gets to wear the "Craig Rutman Lucky Sweater" this week!

Ed Silva - The Most Awesome Person of the Week!

Here's to you Ed Silva, the "Most Awesome Person of the Week"!

Next week's spotlight will be on.... YOU!

Yes, you!

Wanda - You're talking about Ed here, right Wanda?!!!

Laura - You and Wanda need to just settle down a bit! You're inflating Ed's all too big ego!

Roger - Don't worry Roger. I don't think Ed's coming for that dress anytime soon!

Ed - Ahhh, the guest of honor has arrived! You're looking good in one of my best selling Ed "Silva Bells" holiday sweater collection!

Michelle - Just having some fun here Michelle... at Ed's expense of course! But fun nonetheless!

Larry - It took a week of negotiations and knitting, but I got it back from Amy!

Marc - Oh yeah. He's going to need it this week.

Lana - Thank you Lana! Just having some fun here in the Rain.

Rebecca - Don't miss them Rebecca. You never know who's going to be next!

Nick - Amy is a tough negotiator. But I managed to make some concessions and wrestle it back from her. She was so attached to that sweater. And Roger can keep the dress, especially since he fills it out so well!!!

Toula - I've yet to meed Mr. Ed. But I look forward to it. We have however spoken on the phone numerous times and emailed back and forth lots.

Joni - Michael has some anger issues pertaining to that sweater! He's just grown so accustomed to it!

Debi - Ha! Ha! Ha! I would never be caught dead in that hat! That's all Ed's. I prefer this one anyway....

Craig Rutman - Realtor/ Broker/ Fashion Czar!

Anita - Ed's overcome with something... Not so sure it's joy though!

Amy - Hey. Drastic times called for drastic measures. But, as innocent as he may seem, your hubby was a willing accomplice in assisting the safe return of the Craig Rutman Lucky Sweater!

Laura - The Craig Rutman Lucky Sweater is indestructible! Even Amy's unravelling of it couldn't retire the sweater! Get used to it Laura... It will return!

Holly - "Swell"! That's pretty funny! I haven't heard anyone use that word in a long time! Hey Ed, you look swell!!!

Larry & Sheila - And a prestigious award it is! I'm not even sure if Ed truly can appreciate the fame, fortune and luck that will surely follow!

Cindy - That sweater gets around more than.... Well, let's just say it gets around!

Jackie - Not to worry Jackie! I'll be OK. At least that's what the doctor says....

The Doctor is In!

Craig, please don't tell Amy that I'm the one who went over and took the sweater out for you.  I'm supposed to have a sleep-over for the boys tonignt and I'm afraid she'll keep Tanner at home if she finds out it was me.  She's spiteful you know.

Congratulations to Ed.  He deserves that adorable sweater.

I see your knitting skills have improved, a little error on the bottom of the lip but not bad. Keep practicing. The sweater vest you gave Ed is marvy.

Dawn - And that, in a nutshell, is my true goal here Dawn. Linking folks up with people they might not know... but probably should.

Marian - I can keep a secret Marian. But I'm not so sure aside from you and me that the other 199,998 AR members here can! You might just have to go steal Tanner too!

Shar - Shhh. Don't tell Ed. It's not a knitting error. It's a cold sore!!! Perhaps one of the three previous winners of the Most Awesome Person of the Day would like to say something?!!!

Michael - Clown sweater? Did you just refer to the Craig Rutman Lucky Sweater as a "clown sweater"?!!!

With those big lips I can see how the cold sore may happen very easily and frequently.

Oh Craig, you know how to pick them!  We were drawn to Ed's humour instantly! Doesn't he look so sexified in that sweater

Craig--Ed is such a nice guy ---he has made me feel welcome here on AR right from the start.  He so deserves to be a Craig Rutman featured person!  I do love how you were able to match Ed's blue eyes with the blue eyes on the dog hat and the cool blue of the snow.  Such artistry!

Craig, You are one funny guy!  And love the responses from everyone!  That is a great photo of Ed in the snow, he may feel that way with all the snow he has in his neck of the woods!  At least he can put his arms down!

Agreed!  Mr. Silva is an amazing guy and well deserving of your post.

P.S.  Your horrible clown sweater is keeping me up at night.

Shar - Ha! Ha! Ha!

Al & Peggy - Sexified? Uh, OK. If you say so!!!

Pat - I didn't do anything to match up Ed's eyes with the eyes on the hat. The real fact is that Ed was raised in the wild by Huskies and he's beginning to look like them!

Gloria - I love that movie! And that scene is just too funny.

Michael - Enjoy Micheal! This is the only reason I'm doing this. This is after all a social media forum...

Joan - The Craig Rutman Lucky Sweater is impervious to dirt!

Kerrie - Ed is definitely a worthy choice. And the PS part of your comment is just wide open for teasing.... But I'm taking the high road here!! This is, after all, a family blog!!!
