Think Pinker

Earlier this year, I professed my love for flamingos and proudly showed off my new pink flamingo yard decor. Oh, how happy I was to finally add a splash of pink to our humble surroundings! But a few days ago I was walking through our neighborhood and saw this:

Well, crap. Clearly I have been upstaged! Tara thinks it might have been a prank. Maybe a friend or neighbor crept over after dark and set up all those flamingos. If that’s the case, I need new friends or neighbors, because I would love to wake up to such a happy pink surprise!

If nothing else, I’ve got a new yard goal for 2021.

Still not sure if I’m writing every day this month…

  1. I’m pretty sure you’ve talked about wanting flamingos in your yard before. I say no time like the present! I’m sure they’d look striking against the snow you’re sure to get.

  2. See if you can figure out if it was just a birthday thing. That happened in Ohio. No one believes me out here!

  3. That’s a heck of a scene. Someone has invested heavily in flamingos. Around here that’s what kids do to show their love for other kids. Don’t know what it means where you are.

  4. In our old town, there was a church that would put a large amount of lawn flamingos in the front yards of new congregants who had joined, with a sign about welcoming them to the flock. It was kind of cute (although I don’t know how I’d feel about it being a public announcement to the neighborhood about what church I was joining.)

    And then there was the house up the street from us who had a whole flock of these bad boys in their yard for Halloween: https://www.amazon.com/Pink-Inc-Halloween-Flamingos-Ornaments/dp/B000WM8W6K/ref=sr_1_2?crid=7VQCYLBS1TQF&dchild=1&keywords=skeleton+flamingos+yard+ornaments&qid=1605286352&sprefix=skeleton+flamingos%2Caps%2C163&sr=8-2

  5. They’ve been flocked!
    We do that all the time up here and you get extra points for creativity.
    I keep saying I’m going to do it to a certain girlfriend one day but I never manage to…..
