flamingos.,...all over da place!!

Okay...so here's the deal:  after weeks and weeks, nay...months and months...of pretty much every Friday posting some of my most favorite of things here....I fell off the wagon and landed in a big 'ole pile of meh last week and didn't post a one of my pink feathered friends.  So...this week...to make up for that....I give you muchos flamingos!!!               


This flamingo was part of this year's annual Lantern Festival that Nagasaki City has every year.  This was the first year for lanterns to be in one of the rivers near all the festivities!!  She was part of a menagerie of birds....swans, ducks, cranes...they were actually very beautiful!!

The following pictures are ones that nice friends have sent, knowing full well how much I do so love getting them!!

This one is from Jenn who snapped it on her way through the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas (baby!), for me.

Another friend Lea....posted this one for me and ssshhhh...I borrowed it.

My little sis AP sent me this one.....Issei thinks we can do this ourselves!!
  I love a kid with a positive, creative attitude!!

For the last few years, I have been toying with the idea of getting a tatoo....but...as many of the onsens ("hot springs") that we frequent have very obvious signs that say "No Tatoos", I'm not yet brave enough to say "Oh, screw it." and get one anyway.  But.....if I were to find some "big ones" and actually get one next time in the States....this might be something I would get:

(but without the word flamingo under...that would be a little much, don't you think?)

And....in a moment of silliness.....
Debimingo

You all have a great Friday....

**Oh...and by the way...a bit of an FYI....this is blogpost #495....Holy Hell!! That means that #500 is very close at hand.  Hmmmmm.......me thinks this calls for something special to happen.....I wonder what we will do..... (^_^)

I like Debimingo! Reminds me of the eagle pose in yoga which my huge thighs don't allow me to do!
