Ruby Tuesday - Birthday Boy



Ruby Tuesday makes for fine memories. Such as today


November 23, is Cameron's nineteenth birthday. We see him now on his celebratory day in 1999 at age 10. The reds are slight, and they include the logo of the super bowl champ Pittsburgh Steelers, the reflection of that on the table, some cake decorations and his ruby visage.

He is a large kid, not a jock but a thinking man, docile, loyal and great kid. I remember when he was born, and of course I was more a bystander and coach than a participant. It was 8:48 AM the day after Thanksgiving in 1990, and we are as thankful today as we were then. So, happy birthday Cam, you are one of the few remaining good guys!

What a day for a nine year old boy. Was the t-shirt on the logos birthday gifts. The cake looks just delicious and the young man so focused on blowing out the candles, he hardly notice the photographer.
Sweet innocence, sweet child.
