Friday Shoot Out- Paint Your Town Red
















This weeks theme is 'Red', but right now I am making plans to paint Dallas, Texas when I arrive in a few weeks... I love going home to Texas, and when I did this post last year, one of my first, I traveled back twice to visit old friends, and say goodbye to one who I enjoyed helping cook for and take care of... Anjali Vohra

She has been gone two years now and my 'red' heart still beats on for her and my daughter who passed of a similar heart disease...



















'...and they are still with you even when they leave this earth...!'

Sometimes red lets you know when it is okay to 'Yell' for help!















A new friend I had met in New Jersey had a baby, she is two now and I have enjoyed watching her grow, getting in trouble and making her parents faces red from anger as she is entering the terrible twos, threes and soon fours...time flies!




















To the loves of my life, I know I have brought some naughty 'red' to yours...




















We all know I love food, and what a better color than this!



















































Funny things happen to remind us we are silly...
















'This is Super Pup, and he rode in the convertible to my cafe every Saturday...'































Thanks for joining me in my favorite post, since I have only been a part of it for half a year, I made the most of it!

Red is my favorite color, too. Definitely a theme worth coming back to!

Rebecca said...

Red is just the best color. Not my favorite color, but certainly a color that spices things up!

This is a great Friday...I keep getting reminded of old post themes. Your captions add so much! And such great red hair!

ya know. i used to always have one red shirt in my closet because i love the color but i am out of them right now. perhaps i should rectify that situation? :)

Jessie with your hair color you could so pull off red in your wardrobe... I think it has a stigma where clothing is concerned, I have so many pumpkin, and rust clothing, but have that one red outfit, and purse I pull out now and then when I feel, well, Grrrrrrr! LOL!

great choice and great story line. Last year I was in Houston when we did RED - so I had Houston REDS - I wonder what would happen if I did RED here? My friend Luisa that died in August had (dyed) red hair and wore red all the time becuase she loved how the color made her feel.

A birthday celebration is the perfect time to Paint the Town Red! Well done! I envy you, I would so love to be able to wear red! Especially when I feel Grrrrrrr! (what a great word!!)

Yes, our hearts will always beat for our lost one, esp when they are so young.

On the last day of Feb, it is designated as rare disease day.

Just look at your RED hair! Never realized it before. You know redheads are becoming quite rare.

I love red, and wish I'd been around for that theme.
