I'm curious to see where this color was "at home".  Can't help but wonder what else was in there.

It's a Lime Bomb!

They probably had to wear shades to use this dryer. One time when I was about 16 or 17 my mom wanted me to paint a lawn chair green. I bought some paint about this color, and painted said item. My mom was not pleased, but we kept the chair that color for several years.

This dryer is located in the town my Uncle Kel and Aunt Julie lived near when they first married, so I'm very familiar with that area.

this was probably a test unit for so-called beginners...

my brother works at a shop, when the got a paint booth....they were testing out painting skills on appliances...

some where plain white or black, and some of these guys have skills for serious designs...

once done, for the most part these are tossed....I got a number of appliances from them afterwards.....and they painted a few machines for me as well....

good places to check out if you want machines painted inexpensively....

Somehow this seems to be related to OZ, like it fell out of the balloon gondola or something. It is a poisonous looking green, like something acidic and giving off fumes.

Who needs .....

a control panel light with that color? That radium green would light up any dark basement. Ok, I threw up a little bit in my mouth.

Given the locale,

I'm not shocked. I knew a gal from Mississippi originally. Her bedroom was a similar green. Her kitchen was a yellow gold with velvety black and gold brocaid wall paper on a feature wall.
This was in the late 70's.
She married her 13 year her senior husband at age 16, an army private stationed down there. After settling up here, almost all of her dozen siblings came up here at one time or another to try and get on welfare. They were kids of sharecropppers who lived in their bossman's houses.
One sister mothered a child by a brother. The state refused her ADC, food stamps, and general asistance. She went home.

All you can do is be grateful for your station in life because none of us had any say in how we entered this world; not when or where we were born, not our skin color, body or intellect, not the family setting nor the resources of the family or community, not the sex or sexual orientation or sexual identity. If you are doing well, you are either blessed or damn lucky, depending on your outlook and if you are not doing well, that's too damn bad.

Mike (Vacerator), I can guarantee you the majority of people from that area are decent people, and not like the example you mentioned. I consider your inference to be an insult to my family and friends in Mississippi and other parts of the South. I suggest you not be so presumptuous about things you have limited knowledge of.

Yes, I forgot

to mention I made a stereotypical reference, but I was only talking about one family, not the general population.
