Ruby Tuesday


Tis' the season for another Ruby Tuesday post, courtesy of Mary. As such, I submit my my ruby delight.

This is the first Christmas for the lovely Patti and myself in 1985. The red
in here is more subtle than green of the faux tree, but is there:

- The red knit stocking with the letter 'P', not to be confused with the green one with the lett
er 'R'...
- The red bow tie on Opus
- The pink in the garland
- The Santa on the card, the gift under the tree and the
occasional glass ornament.

A wonderful time was had starting back then and continuing every year. Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Christmas is always good for red. It's a measure of how blog and Ruby Tuesday addicted I am that I immediately started thinking of Christmas thing to use for Ruby Tuesday.

What a refreshing sight on a hot August day. For a briefest moment it was Christmas here. I caught a whiff of snow and thought of hot chocolate -- then I remembered that I'm in Hawaii.
