Happy Birthday to Oma Linda with a Flamingo Surprise

Well, we Shingletons are a sneaky lot. Or, maybe it’s just me that’s sneaky. I can’t help it – I just love a good surprise! And what better surprise than one that shows up in your yard on your birthday! The scene you are witnessing above (fifty pink plastic flamingoes) flew in just for my mother-in-law’s birthday this morning, around 6am.
There was a sign and everything, courtesy of Flamingo Surprise of OKC. They’ll even come tonight under stealth of darkness and whisk the flamingoes away to their next surprise.

Here’s a rather stupefied Jude and his lovely Oma Linda.

They were everywhere! Linda said her dog and cats didn’t quite know what to make of all the new additions to the yard. Hilarious!

Clearly, Jude didn’t know what to make of it either.


Flamingo Surprise is fantastic. You can order a bevy of penguins or an army of dinosaurs. I’ve even seen swans online as well as teddy bears. It’s a pretty cute way to get somebody’s attention. They customize your sign, too.

We love you, Oma Linda, and wish you the happiest of birthdays! We hope it was a wonderful day and that you feel special.
