Take A Word Challenge - Orange

For years I couldn't stand seeing anything the color of orange. When I had my tonsils taken out, I had to chew Aspirgum that was a bright orange. Anytime I saw anything orange after that, I could hardly bear to look at it. Many years later, that feeling is finally gone. :O)


Some elements from Rebecca McMeen's digital kit "Cordelia True."

  1. Ha! Isn't it funny, Bill?!?! They made me chew Aspirgum when I had my tonsils out too!!!! Nasty stuff, wasn't it? Maybe that is why I wasn't a fan of orange for a long time either!! But I love your collage! I am a recovered orange-hater!

  3. Ha, ha, ha! That brings back awful memories of St. Joseph's chewable baby aspirin, moistened with water and served mushy in a teaspoon. Turned me off orange flavors for many years. Argh. Your collage is wonderful, though, Bill!

  4. Glad you got over your disgust of orange, because your collage is outstanding and no other color would have worked as well. Blessings, my friend!

  13. Great collage and image, Bill. I like the metallic flowers and the handsome black bird who has persuaded some artist to stamp an orange pattern on his chest.

  16. Love that bird in the sassy hat! Funny tale about the Aspirgum. My world isn't gray and dingy yet, but there's a distinct nip in the air and maybe snow flurries in the next couple of days! Arrrgh. It was such a beautiful Fall. I hope Indian Summer is coming.
