Good Fence Thursday - Crayon Colors

"Sunglow"

Village of the Arts looks like a Crayon Box exploded all over the houses. Even the fences are colorful.
I found a chart that list all 120 colors of crayons.. Check it out HERE and each fence is labeled with the color in the chart.


"electric lime"


The kindergarten class had settled down to its coloring books. Steve came up to the teacher's desk and said, "Miss Merc, I ain't got no crayons." 

"Steve," Miss Merc said, "you mean," I don't have any crayons. We don't have any crayons. They don't have any crayons. Do you see what I'm getting at?" 

"Not really," Steve said, "What happened to all them crayons?"

MY CRAYONS WERE MY MOST VALUED POSSESSION AS A CHILD. I LOVED THE 64 CRAYON BOX AND ALL THE COLORS.

I just Googled how far the City of Arts is from my dad's house. It's about 50 miles and looking at the map there must be a long bridge!!!
I would like to visit there someday.
