While out on a family vacation, we stumbled upon this absolutely wonderful person. Meet Ralph Douglas Jones, an artist living in Tybee Island Georgia.  Ralph has taken the happy fish as his image, and makes a ton of them, but also has many other fantastic reuses of materials sitting around at his shop.

You can find Ralph Douglas Jones on his website, and if you get a chance to stop by, you should.
