Forgot to post this as have been keeping the cat company, she hasn’t had the best of days today, but is much happier now Phil is home and she can snuggle on his lap. Anyway here is the ball shot for today.
“Does anyone know how to work this thing?”
‘Ummm…maybe we’re supposed to make a wish?’
“‘No you have to look at it until you get a misty vision”‘
“I thought misty vision meant I was hungry.”
‘Well then let’s cut out the middle man and just go get some biscuits.’
“Now you’re talking!”
The meaning of colour 6~Pink
Pink is a combination of the color red and white, a hue that can be described as a tint. It can range from berry (blue-based) pinks to salmon (orange-based) pinks. Its symbolism is complex and its popularity is subject to so many influences.
Depending on your age and culture, you may remember pink Cadillacs, pink flamingos, Pink Floyd, the Pink Panther, and the pink triangles of the Third Reich (which were used to identify male homosexuals).
In almost every culture, one stereotype emerges: pink is associated with girls, blue with boys. Unfortunately, there is no consensus of opinion on its origin.
The origin of the English term “pink” is as valuable as any discourse on symbolism. Here are some interesting analyses:
In English, the word “pink” could be derived from the Dutch flower pinken dating back to 1681. The flower’s name could have originally been “pink eye” or “small eye.” Another possibility is the verb “to pink” – to prick or cut around the edges, as with pinking shears. The jagged petals of the flower looked as though they had been cut, thus explaining why it became known as the “pink.” (Jean Heifetz, When Blue Meant Yellow, p 110)
In colloquial language, to be “tickled pink” describes a state of joy, a “pink slip” is a notice that you’ve been fired from your job, to be “in the pink” suggest good fortune and health, and a “pinko” is a person who is extremely liberal, a socialist or a communist.
