  4. Where's that trooped in from. It is a resettled captive, or an injury?

  16. Now if you'd found one of the old bands doing "Flamingo"... Seriously, there are times when I think you found out all the music I liked-- from Miller to Led Zep. Anyway, fine pictures.

  27. Another fine visit, Bob. I visited Great Inagua in the Bahamas where the flamingos breed. (Salt is also raked from the flats commercially). Riding with a local woman, I asked about the flamingos. "Oh they be protected, way over the other side of the island." Then she grinned mischievously and added: "Good eating though!"
