“Girl in the Red Coat (SL)”


Description from Happy Grannie: In this pick, I am trying to recreate the mood evoked by Spielberg in one of the early scenes of Schindler's List. Although almost the entire film is in Black/White, there is an early shot of a little girl walking down a city street wearing a bright red coat. It shocks the viewer, I think, for one thing. The rest is open....

By the way, I won't be online for awhile. I'm having rather a complex, lengthy surgery in a couple of weeks, and am having to make preparations. It's spinal neurosurgery, and the aim is to get me out of my wheelchair. The surgery is not without its risks; however, the possibility of success beckons. I have a top-notch neurosurgeon, and believe that I have an excellent chance with his surgical team (it's a 15-hour+ operation.) Wish me luck, please, on August 13. Thanks for all your kindness and support.

By the way, I'm a cat lover also. I have three pussies to purr me back to health post surgery: one fluffy gray boy (Samson), one very fluffy orange/white girl(Phoebe), and one sleek, short-haired all-black gentleman (Ripley). All three are rescue cats: two were seized from a puppy mill by police, and one was orphaned at birth by a feral cat, but fostered with great love prior to her coming to reign in my house (Phoebe). Pictures to come later.

Keep beading, chickies. Maybe, when I come back online, I might qualify for a chicky name. Whaddya think? Love ya all!

Patricia (aka Happy Grannie)

    Hi, Patricia! So nice to get to know you better — I’ve enjoyed your picks for quite awhile, but it seems we’re never on here at the same time. I live in Indiana. Where do you live? I also have grandchildren who make me very happy — 3 little granddaughters!

    I’ll keep you in my thoughts and prayers for a successful surgery and recovery for you. Please let us know how you are doing once you get the chance.

    This is a wonderful pick depicting a powerful movie! I’ve never forgotten it or that emotional scene involving the girl in the red coat…….haunting.

    Most definitely yes — you qualify for a Chickie name! Be thinking what you’d like to use for yours, Patricia! :D

    Happy Grannie, We will be thinking of you and praying that the surgery is a success. I’m sure it will be. Speedy recovery!

    This is a beautiful pick in honor of the girl in the red coat. I agree with Lynn, Schindler’s List is one powerful and emotional movie. You will never forget it.

    Best of luck :)

    Perfect depiction of the emotional moment when we see the girl in the red coat.

    Patricia, my prayers are with you as you prepare for surgery. I think you have a pretty good recovery team in Samson, Phoebe and Ripley.

    God bless, praying for a successful surgery and a speedy recovery.

    We’ll see you back here soon!
