For Rob...

I am out. On my way to Savannah, to give Rob the proper send-off, to raise a drink and tell a tale with cherished friends.

For those of you who cannot make it, I raise a cyber toe-toast...

You see, Rob and I had that antagonizing, love-hate friendship thing going on, and so, at all of our blogmeets - though I painted HIS toes red - I never gave in.

I wore maroon toes.
I wore frosted pink toes.
I wore hot pink toes.
I wore cranberry toes.

"Got-dammit, that ain't red," he said to the cranberry toes, "you do that shit just to piss me off."

Heh. Yes hon, I did.

So for Rob, I bought a bottle of Revlon's best today. The color is new, and perfect for the occasion: frankly scarlet. Very clever. He would approve.

I will be wearing open-toed sandal's tomorrow. Rob, this toe's for you:

Very fitting Key. Give my regards and condolences to family. Say "hey" for me to those we both know. Have a safe trip.

Very apropos, Key. I'll be painting mine red and raising a glass tomorrow afternoon as well. It's good that you are able to go.

Now why do I get the feeling at the funeral ALL the wimmins are gonna have red toenails? LOL

Posted by: PattiG at June 28, 2006 09:24 PM

Perfect. He would most certainly approve...

That made me cry. Come to think of it I can't stop crying and I never even personally meet him but I feel like I did. Give our regards Key. Thanks

I',m pretty sure that Rob's smiling now...

Love ya, Key.

Posted by: baldilocks at June 29, 2006 09:34 PM

Perfect. Absolutely perfect.

And I have to agree - I think he would approve.....

You made him happy one more time. Thanks for coming and it is always a charm to see your pretty face, Cat

Ha ha! Very pretty toes. You are the only person I've ever met that could go 15 rounds of bare-knuckle brawling with Robbie, and both of you walk away with bloody noses, claiming victory.

...that's sweet

... goodness... a great tribute, and I know Rob would approve.... but how often do you shave your feet?... those suckers are smooooooth..... and isn't it difficult?...

Posted by: Eric at July 1, 2006 08:15 PM

I don't think she shaves those feet, Eric. She puts buttermilk on them, and cats lick it off. At least, that's my fantasy. Meantime, it is an awesome tribute to a good dude.

You do know you are now obligated to wear red toes to Helen, right?
