Very interesting color.

The It is green, but a very greyish one :-)

 

My scanner is color calibrated, but it is hard to get the right image.

Thank you.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

My first thought was that you would like this, followed by OH, Tas would like it too.

Tas, I received a letter from you that I passed along to the friend I told you about. He framed it and it is now at his house. Thank you!

That's sent me to bed with a smile on my face having spent all day fixing my washing machine and the blocked waste outlet - In it I found:

 

A 10p.
A 2 Euro coin.
A cotton bud.
A biro refil.
Hair.
More hair.
Bikini knickers hygine sticker.
Some more hair.

:(

I am a rabid fan of the BATMAN show from the 60's. I don't care for green, but if this were anywhere near Frank Gorshin's costume color I would buy it on principle. Since it is not I can't have it in my collection. No matter how nice the color I would be disappointed every time I used it and it failed to be that green.

Yet another Sarah.

Had to look that color up ;-)  That green of his cosume is more green. Riddle Green from Birmingham is definitely not like the green of The Riddler...  :)
