    It's one of those colours with an irregular declension: grey, greyer, bald. 

    I'm mostly bald but there's still some grey shining through. Hmm, well maybe it's the bald that shines through but you can't expect much at this time of the morning.

    This is the first time I have been able to come here and post on a number of questions quickly.
    Perhaps I am finally getting more comfortable with this format. This post was edited by tom jackson at January 11, 2017 1:18 PM MST

    Any new site takes a little time to know. I remember a few of our Ask people saying the same thing about Askaholics and Blurtit.

    Of course..  It's taken me a while to get used to having all responses being posted along with the questions and discussion topics.

    My problem has been clicking on a link and being taken to the first page of the answer, then having to find which page I should be on. No doubt I've lost a few responses like that. Looks like an excellent site, Tom. Glad you're here too.

    Grey and gray are both accepted in the English language. They refer to a color of a neutral tone between black and white, and can also be used metaphorically to convey gloom and dullness. However, gray is the more popular spelling in the US, while grey reigns supreme in the UK.Jun 10, 2015   (Internet)

    Personally, I use GRAY when I refer to a cold, wet, windy, type of day or feeling..

    And GREY when I'm dealing with colored items.

    I try to maintain an inner precision of thought.

    The Eskimos have many words for what I call "snow."..

    Those added language classifications allow more distinctions..

    (In that sense, language is a mold, not a cloak.)

    So I need to pick one for one thing, and another for the other thing. Can I pick and choose based on my mood? I'm thinking if I'm crabby, I use gray, and if I'm not crabby I use grey. Or I switch them nonchalantly to keep everyone guessing and eventually drive them completely insane. I like that option.

    By mood works well---after all, what is life without a little whimsy?
