Ruby was so creative. I have so many stories, but this one always makes me happy. I bought a serving tray a while back, it must have been 20 years ago. Shortly after I got it, Ruby came over to my place for lunch. I put all the refreshments on the tray and looking at it, she noticed that it was new. She said something about it and I remember telling her that although it was a little bit plain, I thought it was the perfect size.
We ate lunch and towards the end when she was leaving, she said, “May I borrow your tray?” She didn’t say what she wanted to do with it but I said, “Of course.” I knew she was up to something, but had no clue what it was. I gave her the tray and when she returned it, it had a beautiful painting on it. It makes me want to cry just thinking about it.
