...I took a trip on a sailing ship ... by Weezilou

...I took a trip on a sailing ship ...

...and when I reached Jamaica,
I made a stop.

Thanks to the always-entertaining Ron @stray_shooter for his launch of Flamingo Friday! As I looked for an image to use as a base for this week's flamingo, WHAT were the odds that he might have posted this delightful Rasta-mon for a flamingo companion?! (OK, I stole that photo of his!)

After all, flamingos come from that part of the world, so it's perfectly correct that they should make this trip together!
Thanks for my morning giggle :) fav

@gilbertwood Thanks for sharing in the laugh! I'm often known to entertain myself with my own silliness, and I look at this and can't stop laughing either! It's just ridiculous, but I'm happy if it delights people!

@Weezilou Laughter is our best medicine :) Keep up the fun work!

Holy crap, I opened my 365 link and up pops this image and in my post workout fog vaguely recognize this guy. I'm thinking, wow this dude looks familiar, wait that's almost the same guy I just photographed - and he was in Jamaica!!! What are the odds? I'm still in a daze and it occurs to me that you, Louise, had done another masterful editing job. And then, about 30 seconds later I realize it's Flamingo Friday - and somehow the presence of the flamingo just never registered. I'm going back to bed. This is totally awesome Louise!! Maybe my favest fav ever!

Hillarious!!

@stray_shooter Deee-lighted you like it!!! Ken had just asked, "Should you have used his picture without asking?" "Ethically, no, but it's a surprise for him."

SURPRISE!

Can you believe I had that boat waiting on Photoshop when you put up your image?! I knew then and there we'd be sailing! This was an easy one, but I love the colors and scale!

Hilarious Louise!! You have made my evening!! Your creativity knows no bounds!! Huge Fav!
February 10th, 2017  
You are getting very talented with the layers.
February 10th, 2017  
I just love, love this! I love the doofus flamingo too! You are priceless!
February 10th, 2017  
@louannwarren You gave me a further laugh with the flamingo described as a "doofus"! Haven't heard that word used in a long time, and it's so suited here! Thanks heaps!
February 10th, 2017  
Never believe your eyes.
February 10th, 2017  
@Weezilou Of course you know I have no ethics, so not a problem "stealing" my photo. ;-) It must have been fate that caused us to come together on this collaboration. Pretty amazing on the timing!
February 11th, 2017  
@stray_shooter indeed, and I don't even recall taking this photo, but there it was down at the dock! Just another in my "stock photography" file...always on the lookout for potential "stuff"...only way to describe it! (Would you like a copy of this for your Trophy Wall?)
February 11th, 2017  
@tunia Not on my site anyway...and it's becoming more and more so! Thanks, Tunia!
@pamknowler "knows no bounds..." I like that! True...I can design a world anyway I like it! You KNOW how much I've been enjoying this "Down-Time Spring"!
@joansmor Sending it all out to you, my guinea piglets to see if you ask for more or tell me to stop! Thanks!
February 11th, 2017  
What fun you've been having!
February 11th, 2017

February 11th, 2017  
What a magic fun shot Louise, love it, love it.
February 11th, 2017  
@golftragic Have a look at what Ron said earlier in the day when he first saw it! I let him know I'd stolen his image so I could surprise him. Later when I asked if he'd like a copy of this, he told me no, he'd stolen it back from me! I about fell out of the chair laughing! This one was fun! Thanks for liking it!
February 11th, 2017  
@Weezilou No worries, I'm all for a good laugh.
February 11th, 2017  
I rarely use OMG AND LOL but I'm using them full strength for this image! Absolutely hilarious, Louise! Plus, the comments are quite comical also. :-)
February 11th, 2017  
@gaylewood You've come in at a good time as, personally, the comments aren't to be missed! I was dying laughing all day since posting it! SO tickled to provide you with a good laugh, too!
