Ruby Tuesday - Cameron Rubies


Ruby Tuesday allows me to revisit history. Especially for the thousand or so print scans I made months ago (probably another 1,500 more to go)...

That said, you want ruby - you got ruby! Today it is the now 6'3" (191 cm) college sophomore Cameron. Of course, he was little once.

Like at the family birthday party for his second birthday in 1992. Ruby abounds in the red argyle in his sweater, pants, shoes and cheeks. As well as the print on Patti's top.

Not red is Cameron's gift from Aunt Michele - a VHS titled Mickey and the Gang featuring Donald Duck, his favorite cartoon character back then, perhaps he is pointing out the Disney Duck on the sleeve. Memories are made of these...

He is a cutie! My eldest can now fit into a men's small - when he outgrows his new sweater, my husband gets a hand-me-down. How they grow!

Love what he is doing with his little fingers.

I can almost hear his jabber as he points out what has his interest!
Memories are definitely made of these special moments and thank goodness you had that camera handy!

Ralph, he's 6'3" now? Wow! You and Patti grow 'em big! Good for you! thanks for participating in Ruby Tuesday so loyally! :)

That sweet little boy is 6'3"? He sure has grown a lot. I hope he wore lots of red back then so we can see more of him in those 1,00 scans you've made.

The little guy looks so good! Totally absorbed in the magic of his gift! Great to see! What a memory!

Hi, Ralph,
191 cm, that's a considerable height, even for a Ruby Tuesday boy.
So sweet with his chubby little fingers and rose red lips.
Huggable!
Even his socks have red pattern on them. Good find.

I'm amazed that you have so many photos of the kids when they were young. I wish I'd been as smart to do that! In this photo Cameron looks to be at that lovely age when they are fascinated by simple things like the photo on the cover of a box. ;-)

Hi Ralph, I enjoy those pictures of Cameron. This is a good one.
Happy RT!

That's a great idea, to scan the old photographs. I really ought to make time for that, too.

What a cutie he was!

Marites said...

i've been thinking of doing just that, scan old photos as they tend to get yellow or discolor as time passes. Unfortunately, my scanner broke down and I'm waiting for some sale to replace it :)

OH, the kid is a cutie! and I like the colors of his clothes. thanks for visiting my blog.

Thanks for visiting. I am not be a nosey parker, but will you tell me why you are in a wheel chair?

My late son, Andrew was born with a syndrome called Campomelic syndrome. Most die, and the few who survive are in a wheel chair. This could the new thing you learn for today.

This is why I am more intuned with people in wheel chairs.

Looking back at pictures like this, often makes me wonder "where did those years go?"
