    Great job! Funny, but nobody (emails and Facebook PMs) mentioned my picture. It’s my son’s birthday cake from last year. It melted and formed a new word. Now we wish my son a Happy Birtl Day. lol

    Hope you don’t mind, I rewrote it to show what I found (as that just seemed easier to me):
    There, once was a lady who only wore purple. She had tons of clothes, but they merely hung in her closet, because they were green or red. One day, she decided to dye them all violet, so she would be able to wear them all. Little by little, she dipped them all in the purple bucket, until they were the proper color. She was not happy, until every dress, skirt, pair of pants or shorts and every sock, was purple. Finally, she even dyed her hair purple, and she lived happily, ever after.
