Nothing is more satisfying than planting your first pink flamingo in your yard for everyone to see. Nothing is more annoying than the neighbors stealing into your yard at night to trash your flamingo. I wanted to plant a plastic hand with middle finger raised to replace my flamingo. (The wings twirled in the wind). Carol vetoed the finger and installed wind chimes instead.
