Ruby Tuesday



Leora of Here in HP made this new badge for Ruby Tuesday. Thank you so much, Leora!

And as a real treat go over to Leora's for a collection of her favorite Ruby Tuesday posts for 2009.


Now for my Ruby Tuesday post:

Vinny (husband) and I went to the movies yesterday and saw
Sherlock Holmes. It was okay. How could a movie with Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law be all bad? (I posted about it on Facebook). while waiting in the lobby of the theatre for our friends I saw this:



Ha!

Happy and colorful New Year for You. ;-)

"Ha!" is so right! It looks very dusty too! Been like that for a long time I expect! Great ru by find!

Leora said...

Oh, Mary, you do know how to put a smile on someone's face. You have such a nice way of saying things.

We also saw Sherlock Holmes yesterday. Did you get the references to Houdini? Houdini and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle were friends, but then Houdini spent a lot of energy proving that spiritualism, which Doyle believed in, was a fake. I also liked the drawings at the end.

The red phone got my attention!

At my mother-in-law's last weekend, we saw about OLD six Sherlock Holmes movies from the 1940s. I wondered if I'd want to see the latest version. ;-)

Thom said...

Sorry to have linked twice but Mr Linky refused my link several times today.

Someone had a poor impression of the Customer Service or else had a broken telephone at home.

You made a good impression! :-)

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

It took me a second look to figure out what was wrong with this picture. Then I realized, this is just typical.

Diane AZ said...

Ha ha, the funniest thing I've seen all day...and it's red! Happy New Year to you and yours! :D

Ralph said...

Well, what do we expect in these days of 'customer service'. At least the phone doesn't have a rotary dialer!

Nice badge, Leora!

So, the movie was just okay? I suppose I'll wait for it to come on video/dvd....

Happy New Year to you too !

toby said...

Very funny! Happy New Year!

Annie said...

That is so funny and pathetic. It pretty much sums up the state of costumer service these days, doesn't it.

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

Some customer service, yes? Wotta RED! Wonder what happened to the receiver.

I've posted more holiday lights. They are just too wonderful and I had to. Come see the candy cane arches!

Rita said...

It feels so great to finally have time to get back to one of my favorite memes.

I hope that my schedule will stay calm enough for me to have the time to visit all the post I missed over the last few hectic months.

I wish everyone a blessed new year.

I suppose that is better than just getting the run around with press a million different numbers junk. At least one knows where one stands.

That is a beautiful red color phone. I haven't seen this around for a long time.

Ladyinblue said...

Happy New Year, with lots of RED :)

Mimi said...

This reminds me of a Heineken ad that had a Customer Complaints Department, and you had to brush away cobwebs to get in.
Very funny post, Mary T.
Mine's up, and thanks for hosting Ruby Tuesday- I've enjoyed every one in the last 5 months since I discovered it!

daylily777 said...

Maia said...

Hi Mary,
It's my first visit here, but my second link. I didn't realize that I came from an old link and subscribed first to an older page, sorry for my mistake.
Funny capture with the phone, you have a good eye.
Happy New Year!

Ann said...

hahahah, they don't want you to make complaints. This happens to public phone s in many places, but I am surprised at the cinema.

I hope you enjoyed your movie and you didn't need to use that phone.

Gunsside - Norway said...

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Hi Mary. I didn't have anything red in my life this week (boy it really is gray here in Oregon). Really I just haven't recharged for the New Year yet. But your post is cute and I have been enjoying some of the others from Mr Linky. See you again soon. Happy New Year.
