Ruby Tuesday


For Mary's excellent Ruby Tuesday, I am going back to the scanner to get red as red gets. Like the 'Red Rider' as we called it, circa 1992.. A see-saw for the little ones. Not only is the rider seriously red, there are other reds around, but you have to look more energetically: Cameron's sweater, the band on Mickey's top hat, the red collar on Pluto, and others surrounding the Disney characters. And hints of red in his and Allegra's faces. To see a great selection of reds, visit the fun site hosted by the Teach.

Ralph, such a great shot of Cameron and Allegra and that RED RED Rider! Happy Ruby Tuesday! Thanks for you loyal participation! :)

Cute!!!

Having had the pleasure of meeting both you and Patti in person all I can say here is that - wow! Both Cameron and Allegra bear very striking resemblances to their parents and they are certainly a couple of real cuties.

It would be nice to see a couple of pictures of you and Patti at those ages to see how they compare.

The kids sure look happy with their toy!

My Ruby Tuesday entries are posted here and here. Drop by if you have the time. Happy Tuesday!

Such a cute picture!
Before I read Linda's comment I was thinking Cameron resembled the picture in the sidebar of another cute little boy. :)
Beautiful children.

Dear Ralph,
such sweet, sweet children. I'm getting nostalgic this week too.
Must go and search some old films of my own.
Thank you for being inspiring.
Happy Ruby Tuesday

So sweet to see them enjoying life together!

What do they say when you show them photos from this era now? My boys are a little older (in 1992 they would have been 10 and 5) but if presented with photos of themselves from that time period they usually respond with covered eyes and shaking heads.

It's even more fun if their girlfriends are around to see said photos.

Great Red Rider! Sweet faces and I love The Micky Mouse! Happy Ruby Tuesday and thanks for stopping by.
Did you see how red the fireman's face is? His buddies shoved him to the front to get his picture taken. It was all great fun.

Hah, I did a Ruby Tuesday once that featured Pluto's red collar - too funny!

Robin said...

What cuties :). That red rider looks like fun!

Catherine said...

I have to buy a new scanner to share my not so old memories too.
So many paper pictures too. My daughter was born in 92, there began films and films about one of my 3 most beautiful achievements in my life.

I've always thought that Red was synonymous of Happiness. We just have to look at these smiling faces to become convinced.

Ivanhoe said...

I can sure see all the reds :o) That gave me an idea for scanning some old pictures next time I have nothing red to post ;o)
Happy Thanksgiving, Ralph!

Yen said...

What a sweet photo, Ralph. And what great spirit of cooperation the kids must have had to keep the Red Rider rocking.

Good photo to show them when they're having a disagreement...not that THAT ever happens.

ilanadavita said...

They do look sweet. Nice choice for RT.

onangelwings said...

Olga said...

Totally adorable!!!

Jientje said...

That's a perfect Ruby Ralph!!! Oh and um ... wish that birthday boy a happy ( belated) birthday!!

Jim said...

Those were cute kids. They looked very happy too, a lot happier than the little kid with Boris below (were you the youngest that didn't want to pose?).

Happy Ruby Tues, thanks for coming to get me. I had to cheer Warren Sapp along but he didn't win (dancing with the stars).

I like clam chowder, New England style, especially in the winter. I got to like it and fried clams way back when I lived in New Hampshiire.
