We got Pink Flamingos In The Front Yard

OK, all you country and western fans. Do you remember the Tracy Byrd song, Pink Flamingos?

There is a line in the song that says:
We got pink flamingos in the front yard
Picture window with a view of Wal-Mart
Blue collar heaven domestic bliss
It just doesn't get any better than this
We got pink flamingos, pink flamingos, pink flamingos

Well, as a matter of fact we do have some pink flamingos in the front yard. Jake claims that he is testing the reaction time of the home owner's association "Covenant Compliance Patrol". You see, Pink Flamingos and the like are specifically forbidden by the home owner's association rules. We are expecting a knock at the door any day now to let us know that we are not in compliance.

Now, we have learned that there is going to be a new Wal-Mart constructed just down the street. Is this a case of life imitating art or art imitating life? You decide. In any event, just like the song says, "it just doesn't get any better than this".
