Finally a Flamingo!

I’ve been wanting a pink flamingo for the yard for a LONG time now.  Allen has objected for a LONG time now.  I finally won!

This particular flamingo has been in my mom’s backyard for a few years now.  Before that it was in my cousin’s garage.  Since we are living near Dayton right now, and my mom’s is only about an hour’s drive, we picked it up yesterday. (Side note: it’s been really nice being able to see our family and friends – and still make money at the same time!)

Allen did a little rust abatement (trying not to tear the whole thing apart), then I gave it a fresh coat of paint.  YAY!

Fun Fact: Don Featherstone of Massachusetts is the inventor of the pink plastic lawn flamingo, which has been gracing lawns since 1957.

While we were waiting for the paint to dry, I read this very good book by Lee Child. Allen and I both love the Jack Reacher series and have read almost all of them. And, Charlie napped on the table. (Typical puppy-dog laziness)
