Ruby Tuesday





Any patriotic celebration is going to provide multiple opportunities for Ruby Tuesday photos. The Celebrate America that I featured last week was such an occasion. During the tribute to each of the armed forces, I thought of Travis at Trav's Thoughts when the Marines showed up. This one is for you Travis. Enjoy.

  2. The few, the proud, the marines...
    Really nice shot!
    I lived beside a retired marine colonel once. He was the epitome of a proud soldier.

  6. Gotta love this, my 'son' (my real son's best friend) joined the Marines right out of high school. It's been a good place for him to get started in life and he's doing really well in life with the education and training he got while serving.

  8. Hey Driller, this is a nice pretty red flag being held by a handsome Marine. Good one.
    I have a 1950 Ford Deluxe Tudor, pretty much all original. It has 102K miles on it. And needs work that I can not do.

  21. The Marines dress outfit is without equal, the square shoulders standing straight and true, the dress of a truly elite force, and perfect rubies are seen here. Happy independence!
