Memories in Colors.....Part I

by Ladykelshan

Age Group: Adult

Orange is a color that reminds me
of taking a road trip down to
Exeter, California, on the way
to my Great Grandmothers'
home, my mother
and I would stop by
the orange house, that
sold orange pop..
it looked a lot like
a little orange or
orange pumpkin, just
off the dirt road.
The orange pop, was
soo good and sooo coool!

Orange also reminds me
of my orange jacket with
the white fur all around
the hood, and how I loved
wearing my jacket!

Orange reminds me of
the Morning drink that
we would drink, when we
all went camping.
Good old Tang,
Orange breakfast drink!

Red, reminds me, of my
fifth, birthday....I was asked
what did I want, to which
I replied, "a red all over purse!"
(Don't know why I wanted red,
maybe friends had a purse
that color, go figure!)
I got the purse, with a gold
chain handle, and I wore it out
everywhere, till the purse got a
hole in the side of the purse!

Red reminds me of red tennis
shoes, that I really liked, I think
maybe they could have been Keds,
with a rubber tip on the top
of my shoes....I couldn't wear them
forever, as my feet began to grow!
(I didn't think that was fair!)
Red crossing guard out fits,
and the way we all crossed
two guards in front,
two kids,
two guards,
three in back, and so forth,
I can recall the attitudes
those older kid
guards, as well! LOL!

Red hair, on a younger friend
of mine, who was spoiled, like you
would not believe.....and everytime,
she cried, or pouted, or looked
cross-eyed at her parents, they
would buy her something!
Red also for her little sister,
who was born years later, and
whom had a wonderfully sweet
(But, I still liked them
both, anyways!)

Red also reminds me of ,
a red sweater that I wore, alot
I loved that red sweater , until I
out grew it!
Red leaves, mixed in with other
colored leaves in the fall.
Red boots that go over
your shoes, and were hard to
pull off, if you had to get to
your desk!

Red reminds me of a round,
red, "donut" shaped
panasonic radio, that
my step dad, got me, and he gave
his younger daughter a blue one,
and we could put stickers
on it, and twist it, to make
the letter "S", and and or hang
up somewhere!

Yellow reminds me of,
yellow leaves in the rain,
yellow glow in the dark,
"Ray -O-Vac" shirts....I wore
that shirt all of the time, and my
step -sister wore hers too!
We would wear them camping, and
we would get them holier than
My step-dad, gave those
shirts to us, he was a buyer for
Lucky and other stores, and
would get things like that, some
times, and bring it home!

Yellow reminds me
of the color hair that I
didn't have, and I knew
would never look great
on me!
Yellow, that I would put
in the windows of a
house that I had drawn,
on black paper..
Yellow windows in the
little doll house in
the Goodnight Moon
book, that I loved so much,
Yellow book cover of
our copy of "The Little Engine
that could"!
I liked the pictures, alot!

Yellow reminds me of
the whipped up "shake"
that my mother would send
me outdoors with, that
had brewers yeast or
flavorings in it, like
a ripe and yellow banana!
Yellow, lemons from our
tree in the backyard, that
me and my brothers were
not allowed to pick!
Yellow pineapple juice
and Graham Crackers
for kindegarten snack,
and I really didn't look
that forward to THAT
snack all of the time!

Green reminds me of my
green sweater (when I either wore
the red one or my green one!)
Green grass, and the smell of
freshly cut green grass.
Sour grass....and chewin' on that
sour , "you-don't -know-what's-
peed-or -pooped- on -this -"yummy?"
yellow flowered "food?!"

Green reminds me of
boogers!" SORRY , , but that's
a fact!
certain vegies that I would
put in as a mouthful, and stick
them in the pouches of my
cheeks, slowly swallowing down,
with milk!
Green spinach, that my brother
"pretended with" to go use the
bathroom, but, what he really did,
was wad it up in a napkin, and throw
it into the toilet, because he couldn't
stand the taste! LOL!
