I watched one of my favorite movies tonight, The Nightmare Before Christmas. I noticed the werewolf was wearing a plaid shirt. It's not red plaid—it's yellow—but it's plaid all the same.

We started this book, Dipper of Copper Creek last week for school. I don't know why, but it was only today that I noticed the red plaid shirt of the main character, Doug. The boys and I are big fans of Jean Craighead George. We really loved all her books in the My Side of the Mountain series. Regardless, any book with red plaid on the cover is cool by me.

I recently ordered three Gene Kelly films with some Amazon gift card money I had left over from my birthday. I absolutely love Gene Kelly, as you can tell from my last blog entry. Imagine my surprise when I received Brigadoon and saw the DVD case. Way too cool.

One of my favorite performers of all time is Gene Kelly. I recently bought a copy of The Pirate, which features the famous song, Be A Clown. He performs it twice in the film. The latter is with Judy Garland, in which he wears this awesome red plaid overcoat. If you want to watch the clip, click the link below ...

Whoa ... check these things out. I was doing an online search for red plaid bike shorts when this picture came up. When I clicked on the link, I see these things that wrap around your bike. Not only is it plaid, but it's reflective too! This would be so awesome, and they come in all sorts of prints. Check out their link ...

They have this bike at Walmart. I probably would have freaked out a little if it had been red plaid. Thank goodness it wasn't—not to mention the fact that I'm not in the market for a new bike. It's a ladies' cruiser bike, which I'm not too fond of either. Not only that, but it's powder blue. My first 10-speed was powder blue. Why I picked that color, I will never know. Regardless, it IS plaid, which is still cool.

I saw these red plaid reading glasses at Kmart the day before Easter. I didn't buy them because I already have prescription glasses for reading. However, the more I thought about it, the more I wanted to go back and look at them closer. Turns out I ended up buying a pair. I was really surprised how close they are to my prescription ones. In fact, they might even work a little better. They were $9.99 and came with a cool matching carrying case. And so, here's a nerdy picture of me wearing them ...

I have these enormous books called All American Ads that are filled with fun, interesting ads from different decades. I have all the books they make — from the 1900s to the 80s. I'm not sure if they'll ever come out with one for the 90s or 2000s, but I hope so. They're fun to see what was popular.
Anyway, the other day I was looking through them and saw this old ad for Sugar Free Dr. Pepper. I guess that was before they started calling things "diet". The plaid bathing suit caught my attention, so I thought I'd share it here. This was from the 1960s book and I remember having suits like this.

I saw these jars for sale at our local grocery store. I got all excited at first, only to realize it wasn't real plaid fabric. It's just a plaid paper top with a plaid label. It would look really cool if you did add real plaid fabric. Even so, being the plaid freak I am, it caught my eye and I just had to take a picture.

It doesn't take much to make me happy, especially if it is something in the form of red plaid. I found these flats and scarf yesterday. Of course, I'd never wear them together. I always make it a habit never to mix my plaids. I only wear one plaid item at a time. Even so, I was happy to find these little treasures.

Thanks to my friend Julie for sending me this picture awhile back. Sorry for taking so long to post some of these. I saved them on my phone and then moved them to my laptop, so I'm slowly finding pictures here and there. Love this combo look of red plaid with the scary wolf — it's perfect. Neil would love this!

"Hello. My name is Rena, and I'm addicted to red plaid."
Of course, this isn't everything I have that's red plaid. I didn't include the underwear in this picture, so you can be grateful for that. I have other stuff besides clothes. I think I took this picture for one of my photo challenges on Instagram — probably for "Red" or something. Makes for a cool looking picture, though.
