There went the neighborhood with that flamingo shot.
Hope you aren't subject to an HOA!

Some days those flamingos are the only thing keeping my hopes alive.

They were a gift from unknown and presumably teen-aged vandals who planted them as part of a toilet papering job. We keep them up as a tribute to teenagers everywhere.



And here I was about to commiserate about the weather....and then I realized you are in IL and I am in NC. No comparison. Despite the fact that I can't feel my toes, I won't complain because my patio furniture doesn't have any snow bedecking it.

But...dammit! I'm COLD! And ready for summer already!

If nothing else, you are "taking one for the team" - there. Don't you feel better?


Sorry, can't relate. Even birds and Canadians know enough to fly south for the winter.........

I thought they were a little reminder of Florida...but not when they are buried in snow!


I am eight days late to this party (don't the flamingos signal there's a party somewhere?!?!), but I just have to say that the flamingos up to their necks made me laugh. And cry. And pour more wine. We are so snowed in that I can barely pull into my driveway around the hunormous piles at its foot. So I really needed the laugh. And the wine. Thank you.
