Snow, Pink Flamingos and the Olympics!

by Kimberly A. Cook              (Twitter@ WarriorTales)

I’m not the biggest fan of snow. Serving with the Army at Fort Carson, Colorado for three years pulling guard duty, post guard, camping in the snow; high altitude combined with winter is flippin cold. I’m really a beach girl, like Maui, at heart. Yesterday we had a snow storm and more snow is coming tonight and this weekend.

So while I managed to make it home from the day job in my trusty Subaru, being warm and cozy at home is a favorite pastime when the weather gets crazy. This morning I was taking pics of my bird bath with the heater (birdie spa) with a ring of snow around the edge and the reflection of the sun against the pink flamingos beneath it. Brought to mind one of my favorite movies, “Rio.” Love the soundtrack and just found out there will be a “Rio 2.” Life is good!

Since this is the movie music I play while I am writing these days, thought you might like a little Brazil break in the middle of winter. So watch the trailer for the original before “Rio 2” comes out. Happy Quirky Friday!

P.S. Really nice of the Olympics to start so I have something to watch on tv this snowmageddon weekend! Go USA!

  1. How could I have not seen Rio yet? Must put it on the list. Stay warm and enjoy the Olympics. 🙂

  2. Kim, couldn’t bring up the pink flamingos. Could you resend the pics? Thanks.
