Ruby Tuesday




When I was growing up I remember that the caboose on a train was always red, this one was found in Petersburg Virginia and reminds me of more gentle time.

Are you still vegging or cleaning up that spare bedroom??? lol It's always hard trying to get up the energy to declutter isn't it! I love seeing those old red cabooses...when I was in Toronto this summer I noticed that a couple of them had been converted into chip stands! xoxo

Old trains DO give you that feel, don't they? You don't often find a red caboose anymore though! That was a GEM of a ruby!

Most of the cabooses around here are faded. That one is beautiful

Oh I don't know what it is about little caboose that was on back of the train.

My dad worked for the railroad 50 plus years and I recall visiting the yard (where they hook up train)
and going in caboose.

"And the little red caboose always comes last" was a favourite line in one of my son's stories! I read that too him so many times when he was young! He loved it!

Your pic returns a beautiful memory!

Oh that is so cute and I love the word caboose. Who can up with that word?! I love it.

I'm sorry to hear that you "got off track" because of your husband's medical stuff and that threw you off. I can totally relate. I hope you manage to do a cleansing and get back to letting go soon. I want to donate a whole bunch of stuff on the new moon. It's in Virgo, a great time to write lists about what you want to let go off too!
