DeSoto Square Mall Neon Signs

Window in the mall

Conversation Bob and MadSnapper

Bob: “What is the guy’s name on  Blacklist? “

Sandra: “Reddington, they call him Red.”

Bob:  "Oh, like me, they called me Red”

Sandra:  “I know, your hair was red when you were younger”

Bob:  “No, it's because I am "Retired Extremely Dangerous”

Sandra:  “Yes, because you are "Retired Extremely Dangerous" to your own health” 


Bob: “well maybe it stands for "Retired Extremely Dumb”

Sandra: " you got it"


Two things you need to know..................

1. We are avid fans of The Blacklist on TV and recently watched the movie RED..
2. Three weeks ago Bob came home from the park limping, with blood running down one leg and both arms.

Sandra: "WHAT DID YOU DO THIS TIME?"

He climbed a 6 foot chain link fence to retrieve his radio control airplane. He got all the cuts and scrapes on the way over, On the way back over the fence HE JUMPED FROM THE TOP… landed on both heels, hard. Sprained his ankle, stayed swollen for 10 days, his heels were black and blue and it aggravated the gout in both knees. He is 78 years old...


You Decide, is Bob RED or RED?

I love the conversations between you and Bob and ouch, hope his pain goes away soon.

Molly TheWally said...

OMD we are laughing but seriously if he teamed up with Wonder Boy they'd be dangerous. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
Best wishes Molly

That's a rough call, Sandra, but hope that Bob is feeling better soon. Yiu know that a man and his toys are important and so he did what many other guys woukd have done, I'm sure.

TexWisGirl said...

I think Bob needs to stay tethered to the ground. Sounds very painful! And btw, I have always loved neon signs. When I was a kid, it was only the taverns in our little town that had neon signs, but I thought they were so exotic. :-)

Love that conversation between you and him Sandra. I thought something is next about Bob.

Your hubby to me is an accident ready to happen he flashes ( Red) Danger. 78 Bob.
Sorry but each month I wonder what has Bob got himself into.

Now know doubt Sandra has let it out of the bag about you. Bob, Bob. So she is pretty good to keep the lid on it 10 days. Bob, Bob.
Bob off Balance. Going to call you that.

Bob please when you go out alone. Put on your Armour. Knee pads, protection vest and a hard hat.


Did you hear on the news last night that an instructor worker dropped his measuring tape from a high rise building working on and his other buddy was coming in with some more material for the site instruction and boom the measuring tape when through his head and killed him.

So Bob the hard hat. The guy who got struck did not have his helmet on.

I love neon signs. Love your conversation and what RED means!!!
I can't believe he climbed the fence, what was he thinking????

DawnTreader said...

I had to look up The Blacklist on IMDb, I never saw it (not sure if it's been on any of the main TV channels over here). Bob sounds a bit like my maternal grandfather when he was nearly 80, as far as I know he did not fly radio controlled planes (but I'm sure he'd have loved to!) but I know he did things like climb up on the roof etc, much to the distress of his wife (and daughters when they heard about it afterwards).

Ginny said...

I shall make no judgement on said spouse. Though I will say that he needs to carry either a cell phone or a walkie talkie at all times! Better yet, one of those doctor beepers. I LOVE Red and have watched all his previous shows for many years! Boston legal...even way back when he was a teenager on those shows like The Breakfast Club. We have grown old together. I think he should win an Emmy, he can play ANYone!! Phil quit the show last year because he couldn't stand the violence, and I agree. I just look away until the screaming stops.

LindyLou Mac said...

Oh dear what can I say and I do not even know the show!

Marie said...

Oh me! I laughed so hard...not because your poor husband got hurt but because he jumped off that fence at 78 and because he is RED for sure, but not Reddington Red, but the other RED. Well, it was just an amusing post. Tell him I hope he gets better soon, and to stay off fences, and my hubby suggests he go to the ballfield where there are no trees and just chase the kids around with his airplane. (Love Blacklist by the way as well!)

Beth of ".E." Lizard Breath Speaks said...

too funny!!! I bet u

Ida said...

Oh my gosh that is just awful. Poor Bob, I don't want to say he's (dumb) but seriously that wasn't the smartest idea. Just glad to know he wasn't hurt more.

Interesting window.

Ann Thompson said...

Have you considered getting Bob one of those life alert things to wear around his neck?....lol
Ouch on his injuries but your conversations were amusing

eileeninmd said...

Poor Bob, I am sorry he was hurt.. But, I guess the toy plane was more important than him getting injured..Funny post!

Rose said...

Been a while since I checked in...what a great post to find! I vote of the second RED!

SweetMarie said...

you two crack me up!! your man is stubborn. lol love the signs..

Amy Burzese said...

I'm sure Bob is not REDumb. Love the neon.

photowannabe said...

I would say that Bob is delightful...a bit fool hearty...but delightful all the same.
There aren't a whole lot of 78 year old guys that think they are Superman trying to leap small fences at a single bound...(:0)

pattisjarrett said...

He must be a spry 78-year-old! Hope he's all better. That must come from living in paradise. ;)

Chatty Crone said...

Is Bob okay now - and you two are so funny and so in love.

Susannah said...

Hope Bob is okay...but really....this is HILARIOUS!!!!!!
