Yes, Rudolph the red nose as a fall-back. He could do with one like that certainly, Tumblewords!

Not only missing red, but we can't be sure he's got those big floppy shoes...

Red is so important and grounding!
great take.

Barbara Young said...

It must be that he's french, and thinks the red a bit gauche.

Nice take

The malady of the double left hand, no red and for that matter no most other colors too - just yellow brown and blue with little bits of green and orange. An impoverished world.

He could do with a dash of green, don't you think? I enjoyed your Mag.

Sue said...

You said it!

Red might cheer him up a bit...

Laurie Kolp said...

Oooh... I like that a lot!!

Stafford Ray said...

No mystery. Marc ran out of red and green paint. He does get the mood right though, doesn't he, as do you!

Dave King said...

This really packs a lot by inference into its few words. Impressive.

A bit of red would wake our double lefty
up! It has been a delight catching up with you.
