Ruby Tuesday



So let's do Valentine's Day to day for Ruby Tuesday, okay?

Here's a few shots from a diner near my house, all gussied up for
HEART day!









Okay, you want to know "What's this?" Well, there's RED in the shot right? Every once in a while, usually when there was a noise, these pigeons will fly away make a circle around the parking lot and come right back to this spot and sit.

**I've been wanting to tell Ruby Tuesday bloggers for a while now: it will be MUCH easier for people to visit your posts if you give your permanent link, i.e. the link that leads DIRECTLY to your post in Mr. Linky. Will you try to do that?

And now my wish to you:

happy valentine%2527s day image Pictures, Images and Photos

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!


**There's Mr. Linky!! He's back and ready for your signature!

A fun post and I love that last heart! I posted my hearts and flowers for Valentines Day.

Rinkly Rimes said...

Hearts and flowers are in the news. I'm sure the subject of my blog would win many hearts.

Great Valentine's Day shots! Great when different kinds of shops participate in the spirit of the season! And all those pigeons! What an amazing sight! Here is mine till Mr Linky wakes up: http://greyscaleterritory.blogspot.com/2010/02/summer-wisdom.html

Lindz said...

wow, certainly is valentine is approaching, nd think of red... tjanks for reminding me.

Ralph said...

The red of Valentine's Day is nice, a sweet and sentimental ruby (and pink). The heart is a wonderful thing, and we don't necessarily need to wait for 14 February to express it. But is fun to do so then!

Carletta said...

Love the little valentine at the top of your sidebar - cute!
I think the restaurant is tastefully decorated for the day.
That last shot is so cute!
When I say the "KEY" I thought you were going to say something about Key to My Heart! :)

Felisol said...

I had forgotten about Valentine's Day. Hopefully I can come up with some hearts next Tuesday.
Somebody told me it is February 14th.
I'm fascinated by all the pigeons on the roof. Are they ready to take off for Valentine's Day as well??
Red hearts are great in any month.
Love the last one, kind of plastic.
Reminds me of the lollipops we ate back in the fifties.

I have been absent for a long time and I missed all the fun...

I didn't post hearts and flowers, but I did post pretty packages being sent to U.S. troops. ;-)


Have a Happy Valentine's Day, Mary!

Love the hearts...and love the pigeons. I'm always fascinated with bird life.

[ps...yes, yes...I'm glad you mentioned the permalink...I use it, and wish EVERYONE did.] :o)

Mimi said...

Lovely RT Valentine shots, Mary.
And the picture with your Valentine wishes is just fabulous.
Now you need a Ruby savings box for a transatlantic trip!

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

I don't know why I didn't think about doing a Valentine's themed photo today. :\

Jim said...

Happy Valentines Mary!
Happy Valentines to all!

Happy Valentines day to you Good luck with Mr. Linky.

Happily Retired Gal said...

Happy early Valentine's Day ;-)
Love all your holiday hearts! Methinks using a permalink is an excellent idea. I've tried to do that for a while ... though occasionally my brain lets me down in that department.
Hugs and blessings,
Small Reflections

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Mary - mine is red but only by a remote stretch a Valentine. I hope that's OK. We are getting ready to go on a road trip and kind of forgot the Holiday coming up. (We are old ;>)

I love your hearts. And I love this meme. Thanks!

Sara Chapman in Seattle USA said...

I love the diner hearts, especially that they seem to be handmade. More "heartfelt" that way, somehow.

I just had to post a non-valentine item. I went to the NW Flower and Garden show and saw the hugest RED urn with yellow flowers I have ever seen. It must have been over 5 feet tall. Come take a look if you have time.

Happy Valentines Day to you. I linked my post to your linky. I am guessing that is a car dealership.
Hope you can stop by.. Our blizzard of 2010.

Happy RED RUBY VALENTINE HEARTS day to all!

Mojo said...

I always do that Mary. Too much other stuff to wade through otherwise.

But somehow I completely spaced on this yesterday and forgot to post mine. I'd blame it on advancing age, but the truth is probably more like and advancing deadline.

What does Valentine's Day hold this year... that was an easy answer in years gone by... maybe not so much this time around.

One can hope anyway, yes?

Kvasthilda, Sweden said...

Nice shots. Lots of lovely hearts :-))
Happy Valentine's to All!
