I've crossed paths with some folks named "Big Red" over the years.
All have been tall, burly men with red hair.
I saw Mr. D. in his home recently.
He had old framed pictures scattered around his bedroom.
The first one to capture my attention was a picture of his boat named "Big Red."
"Big Red," I said out loud.
"I named the boat after my wife (who died a few years ago), " he said.
Honestly, my first thought was that he had been married to a tall, full figured woman with red hair.
I then noticed other pictures around the room of him with a VERY petite woman but whose red hair added about another foot to her height.
I knew I was looking at "Big Red."
Her nick-name was perfect.
