Giant flamingos invade home at start of hurricane season!
Giant killer flamingos, fearing the start of the 2006 hurricane season, invaded the Vanak home today. They sought refuge at a residence finally repaired after Hurricane Wilma. However, upon learning that the home had been dropped by its insurance company, the flamingoes abruptly fled, first leaving a sizeable fertilizer deposit on the newly planted lawn.
Yeah, okay, I've been a bad blogger. Buried since returning from RT. Writing. Working FT. House is almost done with repairs. Yay. Came home to find these on our lawn. I laughed until I cried. DH thought they made a nice replacement for the tree we lost during Wilma.
Here's the "before" photo of the guys working on the roof a couple of weeks ago. Yay. Almost there. Florida room just need windows, and then we start on the back yard.
Tia is still doing okay. She had a bad day this week, but I'm praying and holding my breath she'll still hang in there a while longer. The vet gave her 12 weeks at the most when she was diagnosed with the liver cancer. She's on week 8 now. God, I hate counting the weeks, but...
One day at a time.
