Ruby Tuesday Followers



39 years ago, bernie came to st catharines to visit mom and dad golden to this house[this was before the family moved to welland].

yes! that ottawa boy came south for a visit and HERE is how it went!

bernie took to dad golden right away and everywhere that dad golden went, that boy was sure to go! here he is following dad golden out from my gramma golden's house. judging by the wide smile bernie is wearing, it seems that bernie was quite happy about the visit.

here he is following his hero to the car.

it looks like big ted is occupying the front passenger seat and so bernie slips into the back one.

alas! alas!...there are no ruby reds in these blacks and whites!...the good old days of browny 620 cameras!


one day ago in the month of april dad golden had to go to the hospital for xrays.
here he is waiting at his apartment in welland[this was years after the family moved from st catherines to welland]....he looks very happy because....

he is now the guy that is doing the following!...here he walks closely behind his son-in-law.

yes the welland boy with the black suspenders is leading dad golden.

right to the hospital door...and they both walk right on in!

we lose sight of dad golden as he goes though a door with a pretty nurse...and wonder of wonders...look!..it is a ruby red door!!

here is bernie and judging by his wide smile, he seems to be very happy sitting in the waiting room that is just chuck full of ruby chairs and ruby doors!

dad golden's xrays are completed and he follows bernie again..i must say that dad golden is following a little farther away this time behind that speedy bernie!

who has ducked behind a hall way and is almost out of sight...what a nice rosy glow the wall makes on the shiny floor!

ah! there he is and how nice! there is a nurse in ruby coloured pants...the photographer who is just as tired as dad golden just HAS to snap a picture!...and so there she does.

well! 39 years later there is dad golden following is now son-in-law to HIS car!...a pretty little red car..."red riding hood".

it is a long walk!

but dad golden finally gets there.

and so does the camera..it seems that dad golden is occupying the front passenger seat and so the weary photographer slips into the back one...but

not until she has snapped another ruby tuesday photo of a red sweatered lady!...snap!

"home james", says dad golden and so off we go!

no looking back!

happy ruby tuesday everybody...god bless you..love terry
