The bird flipped, but not the way you think

You may recall my earlier mentions of Hank the Flamingo.
Hank has been visiting Suite 500 for some time now, hanging out with my Herpet-American assssssistant.
He's a taciturn kind of guy, not quick with a quip or fast with a phrase.

He does however have an eye for pretty girls and champagne.

He was the only boy allowed to attend today's bridal shower for our dear godsend Joanna who is being snapped up in wedded bliss by one very very lucky man this month. (Hank is a bit jealous in fact, he's kind of flipped over Joanna, as we all have really.)

Congrats, Joanna!

My JoAnn and I are coming up on our 35th.


Never let tension between you build... talk it out 'till there ain't no draw in the bow!

Haste yee back ;-)

Janet said...

Congratulations to Joanna and her very lucky guy.

Condolences to Hank.

Gary Corby said...

Congratulations Joanna! It couldn't have happened to a nicer editor.

Julie Weathers said...

Ah, congratulations. Poor Hank. He looks devastated and who could blame him.

Southern Writer said...

I see Hank is trying to drown his sorrow for not being quick enough to snap Joanna up for himself. Congratulations to you and your lucky guy, Joanna.

Joanna said...

Thanks ya'll!

It was very difficult to break the news to Hank...but Janet was there to help me. After all, Janet never has a problem rejecting people...ouch!

Honeymoon here I come! Manuscripts in tow of course...

Haste yee back ;-) said...

Haste yee back ;-)

Janet said...

Manuscripts in tow, of course? ??? !!!
