Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “color/colour.” Use it as a noun, a verb, or pick a color and write about it–use it any way you like. Have fun!
Sometimes the stark contrast of black and white is more effective than colour, though I remember the days of early TV. My parents didn’t have their first colour set until their black and white one couldn’t be repaired which was well into the 1980s.
We always laughed when we said Maggie was a monochrome dog as we couldn’t afford a colour licence, not that there are dog licences now and when there were, it was 7/6d or 37½p. I often wondered why they didn’t reintroduce it at say £10 for the life of the dog as with microchipping, then thought it would probably lead to loads of dogs being dumped or worse and the microchips register dogs and owners anyway for around £20.
Here’s our girl in July 2017 at my niece’s wedding. This is the same picture, one done in greyscale, so if it wasn’t for the coloured bow, you wouldn’t know. Bless her.
Henry Ford said of his cars that you can have any colour you like as long as it’s black.
I used to wear a lot of black, especially in the office, but always used to buy separates to mix and match. However, have you ever noticed how many different shades of black (and navy for that matter) there are in the clothes department, even when they are made by the same designer group. Ha, I remember being mistaken for one of the waiting staff at my cousin’s wedding in 1990 as I was wearing a black skirt with a white blouse.
The card was made for my niece in NZ who got married Dec 31st 2017. I had to buy a box of cheap Christmas cards to get a suitable box to protect it in the post!
