Indeed, the woodwork of my library, the hardwood floors, and even the pants I am wearing are brown; albeit the items are varied in shades. The sandy soil outside of my home is of a brownish hue, and the slow moving stream near our home is often brown when the water level decreases.
Boiled peanuts are stables of parties here; they are brown. Black-eyed peas are, for the most part, also brown. The fall leaves, which have gathered on my driveway, are brown and they fell from essentially brown trees.
Our dog, half Jack Russell, is brown. Her dog food is also brown. The Thanksgiving turkey has been cooked to a brownish color; the ham is browning before slicing. A brown pitcher of sweet tea is standing by.
My wife used to have brown hair; she kept it that way long after age had changed the color.
Once upon a time I had a brown suit. I went to a “dress for success” seminar and was told that brown was too neutral. I gave away the brown suit and haven’t owned one since. Although, I have a light tan suit for summer; I guess technically, that qualifies for brown.
And, it should be mentioned, that my family on my mother’s side, were all Browne’s. Okay, it’s not spelled the same, nor does it carry the came meaning; however, in my study of family origins, the name Browne probably indicated the occupation of someone, perhaps a tanner.
During hurricanes we often experience a brown out; or a lack of electricity. I have a generator in that case. It sits on my brown deck. And, should I need, it will produce power for about ten hours. If I do not keep it fueled I can produce my own brown out.
My CRV parked in the driveway is brown. They call it tan, but it is brown.
Sunday, we will sit in brown pews at church. The offering plate will be brown, although more of a brushed copper color. The tables in my Sunday school room are brown, so are the chairs.
My guess is that in Jesus day most of the things of life were also brown; just a common color that brought no attention. Any color that was NOT brown made it to pages of the Old and New Testament.
