Look what I found in my yard when I returned home from the grocery store this morning, definitely not something I see everyday! Turns out our house was included in a humorous United Way fundraiser. Here's how it works: for a modest donation to United Way, some of our neighbors ordered the flock of pink flamingos delivered to our lawn as a surprise. Yes, we were surprised -- and amused!
Now it's our turn to make a donation to United Way and specify to whom we'd like the birds sent next. The fundraising flock will disappear from our yard as mysteriously as they arrived, only to show up tomorrow a few blocks away to surprise and delight our friends.
