Grandma J. (my maternal grandmother) and Mrs. Ernst (my Uncle Bob's mother) in Egypt
There's a nice extra thing about my red today - it's from both of my grandmothers, and I like that. Red is not my color, I prefer the cooler end of the spectrum, so I really don't have any red business attire, but I have a scarf from my Grandma J. (white with a bright red border and a drawing of Giussepe Garibaldi in the middle, she must have picked it up in her travels - that's her on the camel next to the horse, she was traveling with my Uncle Bob's mom so my Ernst relations should especially enjoy this!), and then my "granddaughter necklace" with the rubies from my Grandma A's chandelier of a cocktail ring. So it's a tribute not just to women in general, but to my two Grandmas, wonderful women who I love and miss very much.
