He had so much stock that it took him just over a year of eBay auctions to finally exhaust all his stock.

I will bring our multi-colored flock to chilly man too. Great idea!

I think I might hide the red ones, though...they may fly away to join up with M&M's shiny new red truck!

Don Featherstone Flamingos

Just bought two at the Dollar General Store in Ocean Springs , MS. Looks like the birds are back and at a very good price ( $10.00 a pair ) These are made from the original molds, they are identical to the ones i purchased several years ago, and a lot cheaper Guess we don't have to go to e-bay to find the birds now and we should see a lot more of them.

That would be Keith the former owner and president of Union Plastics. I didn't pick up every color just a few. Great news about the flock coming back, too bad there are no Dallor General Stores in our area. How about a caravan south to get some more? My master case in the barn is getting low of flamingos. Sandi says I have to stop giving them away! We should park together at Chilly Man!

17 Beanie Baby mingers (Adopted orphans from flea markets/antique stores)
1 Large minger
3 small mingers
2 medium mingers
2 outdoor wire leg mingers
1 metal outdoor minger with a night light
1 large minger vase for galley counter

Photos of our flock attached.

I love your indoor collection! I can't do anything like that inside my trailer because my Golden Retriever would play with them.

I'm glad to see prices are back down again -- since Union closed, the prices were thru the roof on eBay. Before Union went out of business, I was able to buy the Don Featherstones for under $10/pair.

Everyone loves them so its only natural your Retriever would also. They would be soft and chewy and hard to resist!

Very nice USMC birds!

P.S.
Love your signature! It reminds me of the spirit that two of my young neighbors have -- they were just accepted into the Navy Seal program and they are bubbling over with pride and enthusiasm!
