Kid Flamingo

I’m having a wonderful time in New York with The Dowager Duchess. Had a great day in the city yesterday with dear old friends (my only day to dessert The Dowager Duchess… but just for five hours).  Wednesday morning, The Kid Brother and I headed over to the boardwalk for our Nathan’s hot dog fix. Sadly, the one and only skee ball arcade is closed for the winter season. I think it reopens around March. So, after we enjoyed our hot dogs, The Kid Brother had to tolerate my charming company and fascinating conversation as we strolled the boardwalk and saw the local sights. The Kid Brother was neither charmed nor fascinated. I told him if he didn’t shape up I was going to share all his crabby faced photos and I was going to call the post “The Crabby Kid Brother.” He shaped up.

THE WONDER WHEEL BEHIND ONE CRABBY KID BROTHER.
THIS IS WHEN I MADE MY THREAT.
HE TRIED NOT TO LAUGH.
THEN I TOLD HIM I WAS GOING TO CALL THE POST:
“CRABBY OR SMILEY KID BROTHER: WHICH ONE DO YOU PREFER?”

“Let’s walk that way!” I happily piped.

“What?!? That’s the wrong direction!” he snapped.

“Oh, come on!”

“Let’s walk onto the beach.”

“What are you nuts?!? There’s sand?!? Get outa there!” he sniped.

“Look! A flamingo in flight!”

“I’m not falling for that, wise guy!” he snorted.

“No, Chuck, really. Look.”

“Cut it out!” he snarled.

“It’s a kite! Would you just look in the sky, you big grouch!”

“Whoa. That looks real.” And he smiled!

THE GULL WAS REAL… AND VERY CURIOUS.
