Orange lovers

When I was preparing this mail to send to two Orange lovers, I found out that there still is no IUOMA-group for Orange lovers.

So here it is! If Orange is your favourite colour, and if you want to share Orange mail with the world: join!

(by the way, my favourite colour is Turquoise...)

ORANGE (art...not hair )from Ruud Janssen:

I have turned our garage into a clothes drying area 'cos my husband has finally accepted to leave the car outside as all our neighbours do. The reason was that the car would loose value, which it has anyway, it is worth a couple of hundred pounds although it works perfectly. 'One careful lady owner' as they say, who does not drive it. Why I am telling you this? Oh, yes. because as part of the improvements we went to buy the pertinent accessories for the conversion and in the shop, not one but two of the cashiers, had bright orange hair. Obviously it is all the rage around here. I was too shy to take their photo, I am afraid, so I decided to write about it instead.

Not boring enough for this barely technology-wise throwback, I'm afraid, but thank you ...

Do you really want to know? it is quite boring. Any painting program will do it. I used Picsarts which is free on a Samsung tablet. I created a new  layer on top of the photo and draw the cat shape on it, then I painted the area with orange. I adjusted the transparency of the top layer to get the right intensity of colour. Finally I merged the layer with the photo. It worked because Stella is mostly white with some light grey patches. It would not work with Benny.

Ack! Magic! If you'd told me this sooner, your past several years would've been even busier, Martha.

I need your secret. Thought mine was orange, but there's no comparison. Can you send instrux via snail mail if not post them here? Either one or none is fine, no pressure.

LOL. I hardly ever type that, but ... that's what happened.

As you see Nancy your wish is my command.

Martha, their combined colors will need to be featured somehow that October evening.

If you manage to make the kittens in your neighborhood the right color, let us know. That could be useful the world over.

OOOOO! Orange kitten! so lovely. The black one is not bad either, it may get into Halloween mail art perhaps. We have two new kittens in the neighbourhood but they are not orange. Bad!
