Friday Funnies: Bird Flu ... ahem, H1N1 ... Hits Lawns Across America

Careful ... you Garden Gnomes may be next!

By the way, did you know you can spell the plural of flamingo - that lovely, pink, plastic, ubiquitous yard ornament of certain homeowners across our great country - two ways? Either FLAMINGOS or FLAMINGOES with the "e" is correct. Hunh. Who knew you could learn a vocab lesson while posting a Friday Funny?!

Gotta luv it!   I use pink flamingos as a sells tool when presenting our marketing program to RE agents.

It can be quite effective.  But now that all the flamingoes have been hit, what will I now use?

Wow, Carra, I missed the post yesterday so does that mean that my flamingoes and gnomes will be safe? How about my pelican? Will it be spared. Thanks for the warning, does the CDC in Atlanta know about this?

Mr. Ed,

Hey do you remember that show... Alan Young... I loved it!   Good thing you weren't around and YES... you missed it all together so the Pelicans are SAFE... Did you see Anna's Pelicans, she absolutely has it all!  Thy were in her pool!   

I have been out of the loop in Phoenix.. but did see you had a feature... got to go find it and then see that cool yellow star!  Atlanta is in the dark on this! 

Are you ready to rock on the radio?

Your Gnome was leaving on a jet plane?  Hope he had a saft trip and missed the flu!  Smart Gnome!

Hey Carra - that was so much fun having you and Shea here last Thursday.  We'll have to create more events so you can come and play again.  You brought so much value to the active rain class - thanks so much!  Glad you enjoyed the poor flamingoes!  I laughed my butt off when I saw it!

Poor flamingos. If you leave out the "e" from the plural, you'll save toner when you go to print.

Happy Thanksgiving from our house to yours!

OK Carra, you asked for it.  Here's my post using pink flamingos:

Carra, I know you had a great time in Phoenix with the infamous Anna Bannana.  We don't have any flamingoes here in West Virginia....probably tooooo cold.
