@cookinfreak  Gosh, you just gave me goosebumps.  I suddenly remembered one of my grandmothers saying, "...get your colors & color book..."

Most of the older folk in my deep south deep woods town says cray-uns.

 

I catch myself saying it like that, how my grandmother, who was a closet artist and taught me the love for coloring.....the smell of crayons will always remind me of her.... said it, but I normally just say crayon.
