Also, did not include rubber Pink Flamingo shower curtain and matching ceramic hooks.

I think I need help, it's becoming an obsession!

I am SO embarrassed .

We were in downtown Vancouver and strolled into a shop and they had flamingos. Metal ones. Several sizes. All kinds of poses.

I bought one

I can't believe I did that.

I bought one each for my friends who just got Flying Clouds

I felt a tad foolish at the cash register as the clerk looked at me somewhat strangely.

Good thing I'll likely never go back to that store again.

You have nothing to be embarrassed about! Buy those flamingos, and buy them with pride.

Reminds me of when I went to REI and purchased bike handlebar streamers, a bell, and a basket. I got to the front of the line, and the guy at the register said, (in a smarmy tone), "And are these for your bike?" I said YES, and stared at him, daring him to say more. He didn't.

Looking forward to seeing the flamingo flock at TCT.

Hey Safari57, you are preserving icons of Airsteam history.

Never be embarrassed, rather... be proud!

Well, I felt compelled to buy them after seeing our WA. neighbors at Deming with more than a couple - we felt like underachievers so to speak . Mind you they are kind of hard to even attempt to keep up with - dual vintage polished Airstreams both of which were in attendance, ditto on their classic TV's, whitewall balloon tired bicycles, and the list goes on. Nice people though - nothing trendy about them, nope, certainly not.

I have a choice?

Wow, you mean I have a choice whether or not to sport a Flamingo on the front lawn of the AS? I just assumed you had to do it, like pay taxes and die, own and Airstream, sport a Flamingo. I saw this one at Beverly Beach Last year. Very nice.

Mmmmmmmm, Guilty also... Pink Flamingo's are difficult to buy in Australia, soooo, I imported then from USA. And they are always a hit when they are out and about!

I travel with one solar powered pink flamingo to aid in finding my rig at night.
You now we all look alike.
