red velvet

October prompt for today “red velvet.”   My mind goes, “What can be unusual about red velvet?  My doll in the red velvet dress?  My granddaughter twirling so beautifully in her red velvet skirt?  No.  Okay, how about red velvet cake, how it soothes my senses?  No.

Go to google and see what else might awake the muse.  Must be Victorian something – chairs, couches, pictures, wine, rugs?

Humm, what’s this?  Red Velvet Bible (1885), online.  I’m hooked!

It’s about 150 pages long so I’ll have to report back sometime.  I read the first chapter involving two characters.  One a distinguished gentlemen buying a gift for a little girl; the other a destitute girl buying a Bible for her brother who is setting sail that day.  The story line will follow one of the Bibles, or both, I don’t know yet.  Well I will go on the journey with it.

If you would like to follow the Bible and me, go to Red Velvet Bible


Written for M’s October prompt “red velvet.”

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

      I’m planning to. I can only do it at the expense of reading some posts; I hate to give them up. I’ve got some pressing family needs now which will entail spending some time each week with a family member. And I’ve gone to far with a garage sail to postpone it. So my blog “fun” much be neglected somewhat this week.
