Where did all these Flamingos come from?

We got Flocked. Thursday night. Avery had gone to bed, MayMay and Ali were upstairs hanging out. Peeps was chillin in the living room with the dogs...and all of a sudden the dogs go crazy, barking and carrying on. MayMay and Ali came downstairs and looked out the front door. Thirty pink flamingos in our front yard. There they were, in the Red Japanese Maple, on the lawn, hanging from the front porch lamps, hanging from the Flame Stitch Birch, there must have been 50 of 'em. And then there was this sign, explaining how all these flamingos had come to live in our front yard, and how you could, for a modest sum, "send them on" to some one else, or how, for $100, you could get "flocked insurance" so that they'd never come back again. So Peeps, who loves kids and loves Young Life, decided to give Young Life a check for $99.99. kist because he hopes he gets flocked again...Early Friday morning when Avery got up, she saw saw the flamingos, and she had to greet every single one of 'em. PS. Avery will need a Young Life leader in exactly 13 years. You better believe we have already started praying. Thirteen years will be here before we know it.
