Flora's excellent outdoor adventure

Flora enjoys the view

Be careful what you ask for

Flora the flamingo became a resident Chez Paul when Patrick "rescued" her last month from Toucan's bar. She begged and begged for a chance to take some fresh air and enjoy the view on the patio Chez Paul. I gave her her wish.

As these things do happen, Flora inadvertently also spent the night outdoors. The new day dawned cold and blustery. Flora was not amused.

It was time for some tough love. Flora had to be euthanized. It hurt me more than it hurt her.
