We had a terrible thunderstorm with hail last Friday, which I wrote about in yesterday's Writers Plot post. (You can find it here.) The garden suffered a LOT of damage and we were pretty upset about it.

Flamingo3 So on Saturday, when I started out on my weekly Garage Sale Hunt, I wanted to find something fun to cheer me up.

I did.

As I walked back to the car with my wonderful find, my husband commented, "These are the things that cause divorces."

Okay, so a pink flamingo is a cliche (and this one is so pink it's almost purple), but after the angst we went through over the garden (which is bouncing back, thank goodness). I wanted it. I needed it. And at 75 cents -- what a bargain!
