I'm old enough to wear red boots any time I want, she said. 
She wanted to be buried in them, but her son had them put her in taupe pumps instead. 
She wore red all winter long so the ambulance could find her quicker if she fell in a snow bank & also it hides dirt. 
She had married early & had always been a pragmatist.

  2. Lovely photo and quote! Just made me smile when I thought of her in her 'red' boots upside down in a snow bank...smile...

  3. What a pity this character didn't wear red for the sheer thrill of loving the colour, rather than so that she'd be noticed if tragedy struck. She certainly had an interesting, if grim, perspective on life.

    Thank you, Maschas, for contributing your beautiful blue-skied, sunny photo to Sunlit Sunday this week. It looks like you took it on a gorgeous day. I hope you meet some bloggers here whose posts you enjoy and that you join in again next week.
