Found this on the way to the butcher’s shop yesterday and went back today with my camera. Hindsight being what it is, I should have taken the shot from the other side of that Chevy truck.

Santa’s sleigh is E-M-P-T-Y and what kind of reindeer is pulling the sleigh? Flamingeer? A Florida thing, I guess, but, for sure, it caught my eye.

Today is Southern Rural Route’s second blogaversary. It’s a toddler!

  1. Could anything be more festive??? I think not!
    Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even my spouse. He was out in the fronchard puttin’ pink flamingoes right where I had Rudolph’s red nose…

    Merry, Merry!

  2. Our neighbor also has 9 flamingos, including one with a shiny red nose …
    and they are pulling santa on a surfboard. Something for everyone.

    1. Santa on a surfboard! How original and very Florida. And you didn’t even mention it! You do know, don’t you, that I have a tab at the top of the blog that says, “It Caught My Eye?” You are supposed to help me look for interesting stuff.

  3. How real they look in snow!! What a great picture. My neighbor and I had flamingo wars going. I put “halloween” flamingoes in her yard, they headed back to me on Valentines day. The best was there was a strange pink glow coming from my front door one Christmas…she had strung flamingo lights for me!
    What makes pink plastic flamingoes so much fun???

    1. Becky – the FUN of flamingos is one of those unfathomable mysteries. I have a friend who lives in Ohio who is now around 72 years of age (this aging business has been getting us all). For her 55th birthday, I mailed 5 flamingos to her daughter and asked the daughter to set them up in her yard. We’ve been doing flamingo mail ever since. She has those flamingo lights set up in her basement year-round. You need to anonymously send your neighbor one of those flashy flamingo postcards. I found one at The Landing several years back. Just keep a look-out for postcards everywhere you go. Check that store where you got the alphabet flags to see if they have any flamingo stuff. Check online to see if there are any light-up Christmas yard flamingos that you could catch on an after-Christmas sale.
