Big rig painted pink for BC research

I'll admit it. I have a split personality when it comes to the color pink. One minute I am complaining about the pink cans of tuna in the supermarket, but then I find myself utterly charmed by this.

A natural gas rig painted pink to raise money for breast cancer research. There is something about those Colorado "roughnecks' going to work every day on a pink rig that makes me smile.

I hope that there is some woman with breast cancer who lives nearby who gets a big smile out of seeing that platform. I realize that the 10,000 dollars a year it raises is a drop in the bucket, but sometimes a little sign of support is priceless.

update: in a somewhat similar vein Kentucky has a pretty sweet pink abulance, though to me it looks like a candy truck!


  1. Suzanne,

    I had the same reaction when I saw a huge cement mixing truck painted pink. I hope I have my camera with me the next time I see it.

  2. Here in Northern New England we have Webber Energy's pink fuel delivery tanker you just can't help but noticing.
