Ruby Tuesday


This was Allegra's first Christmas Eve in 1989, five days before her first birthday.

You want red? You got it! This is her 'classic' rocking horse dress. It was easy to put her into
a dress...until about eleven years old.

What is more kid friendly than a Fisher Price toy, although the animal sounds weren't that authentic, but acceptable to a one year old kid.

Ruby Tuesday is the creation of The Teach. Check out the other participants and you will be amazed at the depth and breadth of reds therein.

Hey Ralph, this IS RED! She is soooo cute too. Is this a visit grandpa toy? We have some of those but now they are 10-speed bikes.
Thanks for checking in on our Adi the Beagle (not RED, the surroundings were). She is a nice dog and has brought Katrin home once she strayed way down from our house. Katrin wouldn't let us near her that day!

Dear Ralph,
Your Allegra is just one year younger than my Serina, who had her first Christmas in -88.
Those were the days..
Never think I've been happier or learned more than seeing life through the eyes of my child.
Thanks for sharing happy memories.
