Where Have Pink Plastic Flamingos Gone
I keep a crossword puzzle book in the bathroom and who ever comes along can work a few squares. One question last night was "plastic flamingo place" so I answered yard. Well that didn't match up with the other squares. Of course you probably know it was lawn. Here in the country we just say back yard or front yard because some don't have a lawn. People sure used to have those pink plastic flamingos though. In the front yard or the back or the flower bed or two of them posed around a bird bath as if they were drinking. Don't see them much any more but it made me think of one of my sons-in-law who hated pink plastic flamingos. When his 50th birthday was coming up my daughter wanted to rent 50 pink plastic flamingos and place them around in their front lawn (yard to me) but she didn't. She placed something else funny there and I don't remember what. Just wondered if anyone has seen any pink plastic flamingos lately? I haven't and really don't want to. Just though I'd ask.
