"The whole difference between construction and creation is exactly this: that a thing constructed can only be loved after it is constructed; but a thing created is loved before it exists." ~ Charles Dickens

This week for Ruby Tuesday I had the perfect touch of red... or rather a huge heavy weight blast of red... and it is sitting in the street next to our house. A construction dumpster...why?... because we are in the middle of a construction project. I haven't posted about it yet, but I have taken a gazillion pictures and posted them for my brother and a few friends and family to look at. You see.. this is my brother's house and his project... only he lives most of the time in Europe and sings there... an opera singer... Helden tenor. Currently he is in the Canary Islands off the coast of Africa in a production of Tannhauser; he is in the title role.

Anyway, one of the very first things to show up was this dumpster... a bright red construction dumpster. All the trash from wood to boxes and concrete block fragments go here. They said it would be moved to the area inside the fence, but as yet... it still remains in the street. We also have a portable potty... but it isn't red... just a drab olive green.. a little weird to see one sitting in your yard but better than facing the swamp snakes in the preserve. More than likely it is one of those city regulations for a construction site.

Perhaps as it goes along, I might come up with more pictures... but for now... just the red dumpster...and a side dish of red door at the house across the street. Happy Ruby Tuesday!!!
