…Hi Everybody… and Goodmorning / -afternoon / – night

For 23-D …  well I did not have to think long, not even a second grinn… having had D’s around me for as long as I can remember… I introduce to you my 2 D’s from these days…

Brego (July 2nd 2009) a Scottisch Collie / shepard called also… He should have long hair but having had a very rough start in life, (I found him in a shelter) he has many skinproblems so to ensure that he has the least possible trouble with it I keep his hair as short as possible.

 

Noah… a French King Poodle (January 2nd, 2003)

 

Since we do not have a very large garden nor a big house, we only have 2 dogs… and 2 cats. If we ever winn a large amount of money, we will move and get more. We never went to a breeder but always got every animal from a shelter. There are far to many animals in need around the world, The Netherlands are no exception, so we will always choose for the ‘problem-animals’ which nobody wants… we have experienced throughout the 35 years already that they make the most wonderful and loving pets one can have. All the time and effort we need to put into it is every moment worth it.

Have a splendid, ♥-warming ABC-wednes-day / – week!

23-C by Roger

The combination of colors make other colors. On the ROY G BIV scale, red and yellow make orange, yellow and blue make green, and blue and red make indigo and violet.

But in mixing of pigments or dyes for printing, the primaries normally used are cyan, magenta, and yellow. And for additive combination of colors, as in overlapping projected lights or in CRT displays, the primary colors normally used are red, green, and blue.

In any case, here are some color songs, with links I HOPE work in your country:

Fancy Colours – Chicago

Red Rubber Ball – the Cyrkle
Orange Crush – REM
Mellow Yellow – Donovan
Green Tambourine – Lemon Pipers
Blue Bayou – Roy Orbison
Mood Indigo- Ella Fitzgerald
Purple Haze – Jimi Hendrix Experience

Brown-Eyed Girl – Van Morrison
Whiter Shade of Pale – Procol Harum
Black is Black – Los Bravos
Touch of Grey – Grateful Dead

 

 

23-B by Beverly

This week at ABC Wednesday, the letter of focus is B.

B is for Ballet and ballet shoes.

As a young girl, I took ballet lessons, even took part in a ballet recital. I was terrible and really was never graceful. I can remember hiding after my brother let me off one day, so that I wouldn’t have to go to a lesson.

I wore little slippers, nothing like the ballet slippers that ballerinas use to go en pointe.

I felt the quote fit the torture many ballerinas must go through – the hours of practice, the pain, the bruises, the intense discipline.

Yet, when you watch a ballet, you cannot help but be enthralled by the effortless beauty of the ballerinas., their skill,  and their passion.
