Petite Red

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.
