Home again - and a surprise!

This was one of 6 flamingos at a bank entrance. I thought they were just hilarious!

We got back from our fabulous vacation 5 days ago, but I've been on the move ever since. We have begun our little Christmas visits from nieces, nephew, neighbors and old friends, so I needed to bake and wrap and clean before I could actually spend time at the computer.

Now, you just never know how far Obamania travels. We went to a little island picnic with local lobster and music, and look what we found! This sticker is on the "bass" for a band that was singing during lunchtime. Everyone on the island seemed quite happy about President Elect Obama - we saw bumper stickers and yard signs in a lot of places, too!

Besides the good music, this is what I really like about our island, Anguilla. Local crayfish (lobster) for lunch? - notice that I AM drinking a diet coke to offset all those calories!

And last, but certainly not least, here's my surprise! For the last 14 months, I have been participating in a Bloggers Round Robin project. Mine is the first one that is finished (an entire month early). I just had to post it for you to see. After we get them all in to their owners next month, I will make a post of all 15 of them. They finished just 13" X 18", and until this month (due to the weather problems), not a single one of them were lost or delayed!

Isn't it just wonderful?

13X18 sounds like a very fun size to work with - yours came out great! Glad you had a fun trip.

As part of a local church fundraiser you could hire a yardfull of plastic flamingos to be planted on a "friends" yard. They then paid to have the kids come back and remove them...all in good fun!
