Ruby Tuesday has arrived again, and Mary has prompted another view of the past, at least for me. I started using my wheelchair in late 1995, and had no vehicle that would give me a sense of independence. My 1989 Dodge wheelchair van was a godsend, as I could go places and do things. The van was not RED, but read on... After getting into an accident due to an electrical glitch, I was forced to cede my independence as the RED tow truck with the AAA markings took my freedom away for nine days. A sad Ruby Tuesday in 1996.
But fixed and returned, the non-red Dodge is the happy backdrop to another Ruby Tuesday. And five year old Cameron who wanted so bad to be a garbage man when he grew up. As he brought the cans back on garbage day, he was pretending he was the BFI guy. What is red here besides the red can and lid? The red seat on the Little Tikes tricycle, the side light on the van and Patti's car, a 1993 Sentra draped in what Nissan thoughtfully called RUBY PEARL. Really! Thanks to the Teach for allowing me a sentimental search for red.
