Ruby Tuesday - Signed, sealed and delivered
This week's Ruby Tuesday theme is signs. And we see more than a few in our daily travels. I am staying local, and it begins with the sign for our neighbor, Derby, CT. The colors of their city is red and white (the HS the Red Raiders). The decorative red signs are seen here when entering from neighboring Orange, A simple slightly ornate wood sign. The next sign was taken from inside the David Humphreys House yesterday when the Derby Historical Society had an open house for Twelfth Night, with Christmas carols sung by the Society kids in period costumes. And food and mulled cider and the fireplaces roaring, the fires the only heat in this 17th century dwelling. The more clear sign next to the road is next...
Alas, I ran out of local reds, but I offer a view of one of the best ice cream places anywhere, the great Four Seas in Centreville on Cape Cod. Zero ambiance, but on a warm August day, you want your ice cream cold, and now, and this place delivers. Of course, the neon sign gives you a clue as to the age. Memories are made of these, a wise person said, Hear, hear says I. For more reds that you can imagine, visit Mary's weekly meme!
