On Fire!



RUBY TUESDAY

ON FIRE!

My son-in-law, Brian, detests photographs!
Point the camera at him .....no smiles and no laughs!
In fact he will hide under tables and chairs,
Or bury himself in some other affairs
If ever he sees that I'm 'trying it on'!
Quick as a flash I'll find Brian has gone!
But if I am desiring to snap something red
The fact that he's in it goes over his head!
A fire-engine's worthy of being recorded!
And I'm with a good shot of Brian rewarded!
And so 'Ruby Tuesday', I did it for you!
And I hope everybody's enjoying the view!

TURN OVER A NEW LEAF!

Vegetarians! State your case!
Greenery to the fore!
Here's a dress made up of leaves
Sweeping to the floor.
They look like cabbage leaves to me,
Wonderfully uniform,
And clinging very charmingly
To a most curvaceous form.
So if you're turning over leaves
(And some are good to eat)
Become a vegetarian
And give up eating meat!

Great shot of your SIL. I am happy you got your shot. He should be very proud, being a firefighter. Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Oh no. Now your secret is out. Brien will never pose with his firetrucks again. LOL

I see a slight smile on his face - it's a great shot, RR! And I do love your poetry!

Happy RT!

Many are like that, they hide and go through contortions to stay away from the camera. Great shot though and I love your verse, very well done.
