    Flamingo One, Flamingo Two
    So recently I found a box in my living room. Guess what was inside? Guess where it came from?

    How do you cook those? Bake, BBQ or fry? Are they good eating?

    Nah, lawn flamingos taste best with CHEESE or CORN.

    We don't see many lawn flamingos in rural, upstate New York. Folks around here are partial to life-sized plastic deer for yard decorations.

    It's a real big deal with all the vintage Airstream owners

    History

    In 1956, the Leominster, Massachusetts company decided to hire a young designer named Don Featherstone. Although Don was a serious sculptor and classical art student, his first project was to redesign their popular duck into the third dimension. (One must do what they can to pay the bills.) Don used a live duck as his model and after five months of work, the duck was retired to a local park. His next project would prove to be his most famous. He couldn't get his hands on real flamingos, so he used photographs from a National Geographic in its place. He sculpted the original out of clay, which was then used to make a plaster cast. The plaster cast, in turn, was used to form the molds for the plastic. The original design called for detailed wooden legs, but they proved to be too costly and were replaced by the metal ones still seen today. While the exact date was never recorded, the first pink flamingo was born some time during 1957.

    The late 1950’s just happened to be perfect timing for the flamingo. America was moving to the suburbs. Industry was convincing America that a natural lawn was one that was mowed and treated with chemicals. And, every lawn needed a lawn ornament.

    Airstreams make a ritual out of having them displayed with they camp out!

    Bob's posting reminds me of a diner in Los Angeles called the Airstream dinner with pictures from that time of men in trunk swimsuits and women in bikinis in front of long boards.

    The diner was open 24/7 and their motto was "We never close." And it was true, until they went out of business.

    Ich bin glücklich, Ihnen Vergnügen zu bringen. Ich denke rosa ist eine gute Farbe für Sie. Vielleicht sollten Sie einige rosa Hemden kaufen und sicherstellen, dass sie den ganzen Weg geknöpft geworden werden.

    How is that a thread killer? Should I not think it will be a pleasure to spend time with Brook in NY? Or did you translate it some other way?

    I am 99% German, just being who I am. Although I am also a Gemini, sign of the twins, so you never really know which one of me you are going to get. Might get good Connie, might get bad Connie.
