I concur. Entered into the official records - Donald Featherstone, creator of the pink flamingo - Honary Member, on the news of his passing.

Agree^^^

When I was kid my maternal grandmother once told me that when pink Flamingos got married the first thing they did after the honeymoon was to go out and uy litgtle plastic statues of Italians to decorate their nesting areas with.

He enjoyed making things that made people happy, that's what his life was about.
So says the news I read about him.

Donut holes are great, but of course you have to eat through the donut to get to them.

I haven't checked your link yet, but would that be Linmouth and Lynton? The funicular? Neat place!

I hadn't realized you were a Limey too, as DH is. He's a north Londoner by birth, but lived in Henley on Thames for many years and then in the West Country near Bath. You?

Rocker? What rocker? Did I ever have one? Was I ever actually on it? Pffft!

We've just had the best time with your link, playing with the maps and so on. Indeed, we will be spending several days near enough that we might be able to take a day trip to ride the L&B. What fun! Thank you again!

Questions welcomed, RVMs.
How do you like it so far?
Dave

Never saw a lithophane before. How was it made, I wonder. Nice pics, as always!

With the power in my right index finger, I officially decree that Donald should have an honorary place in the RVM Roster as RVM Pink.
What say one. What say you all.
OMG, a national day of mourning for the Texas Boomers!!

I love to park for awhile and get to know the area and the other RVers, but then there is the need to be out on the road and see what's out there. I love to stop and support local craftspersons and produce stands, too.

I'm usually happy wherever my journey finds me to be and I find a way to make it work.

My destination is the journey.
