Ruby Tuesday: Angel Plays Monopoly

Maryt/The Teach over at Work of the Poet has something called Ruby Tuesday which featuring all things red.

I unwittingly took a jump on the suggestion for next week for "just a little red." On Sunday, Shannon, my young neighbor came over with her Monopoly game. She proceeded to win by as wide a margin as I've ever been beaten by in any game. She actually tried to help me out but her strategic hotel placements and my bad luck were too much even for her desire to prolong the game.



Angel, of course, just loves board games and always likes to join in.

After Shannon and I started to get cranky, she decided to supervise from a box seat.

Boring!

Shannon wanted me to take a picture of Angel wearing the top hat. Took us a few tries, but I think it's a good look on her.

Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Great photos for Ruby Tuesday. And Angel looks positively elegant in her top hat!

Cute kitty...
The "guy in the red shirt" was traded to Ottawa last season. that's defenseman Mike Commodore during the Stanley Cup parade here in 2006.

And you would be far from the first woman to ask that question... "Commie" is very popular. I can't recall for sure, but he may also be single. So if you want to move to Canada and follow the career path of an NHL hockey player, you can take your chances...

Dear Raven,
you are what we call an artist of life. How you manage to focus on the important little things making living so interesting, and sometimes even funny.
I chuckle and smile reading your Ruby Tuesday.
I suck at Monopoly, but sure would like a game of Scrabble.
Have a happy Ruby Tuesday yourself.
From Felisol

Angel looks grand in formal wear! And she seems to have a monopoly on the Monopoly box. I am glad I didn't get your post read last night before bed. I am now going off to work with a grin on my face.

Oh my goodness - I loved this story! The kitty in the box was adorable, but then the top hat, too? It sounds like you and Shannon had a fun visit.

Your story reminds me of some nice neighbors that my sister and I met during a particularly difficult time in our lives. Kids need good adult friends, as well as kid friends.

Denise said...

Kitties can fall asleep wherever...our certainly do!

'Monopoly' is a perfect descriptor for cats: they monopolize the whole scene!

Angel is a beautiful cat!

onangelwings said...

Ohhhh I love that cat and I adore her name. I am an angel collector and I would totally name my next pet angel. It's my daughter's middle name.

Look at that precious face.
