ABC Wednesday is a word meme with participants from around the world. This fabulous meme was created and hosted by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt who hails from Great Britain. Over time, others have joined in to help host this wonderful and informative meme. We are now in our seventh round-some of the participants have been with this from the very first round; others have joined in along the way. Each week we are taken across the globe to see the varied and exciting contributions people have taken the time to discover and capture. We start with the letter, "A" and each week we post something in regards to the next letter of the alphabet. This week's letter is, "P".
I thought this appropriate as we are in the 'season' of All Soul's Day (and Day of the Dead in some places). It is difficult and sad to have to let go of someone you love. Particularly if their departure occurs sooner rather than later. I took this many years ago at my uncle's funeral. My brothers and cousins were the pall bearers and I had never noticed the tradition of the gloves being placed on the coffin at other funerals before it is lowered into the grave. It was the final good bye. Difficult. Sad. But, most certainly the period at the end of a sentence.
PURPLE PANTONE COLORS
Those of you who are in the business of the graphic arts in any manner are pretty familiar with this (such as the purple Pantone color chart here). Pantone is actually a printing company who set the standard for color matching used in the printing industry. It took the brilliance of a chemist to figure all this out, this color matching thing with ink formulation in the printing process. Without this standardization, the color variations in the printmaking world would be infinite and unmanageable!
PILES OF PLENTIFUL PLATES
Yes, a plethora of plates piled high. All for the sake of serving up delectable goodies at an annual tea function. You will have to make it a point to come back here next week when I do "Q" to find out more about this annual event. Hopefully, I've peaked your interest!
No need to carve these pumpkins. Heck, these are big enough for some of us to hide in! Portly pumpkins, you might say. No pies can be made from these, sorry to say.
