Friends give him the bird

May 19, 2004|by Ric Dugan

Aaron House, of 50 E. Irvin St., walks past a 19-foot flamingo placed in the front yard of his home to commemorate his 30th birthday. House said three friends and three co-workers from Bushey, Feight, Morin Architects Inc. of Hagerstown, conspired to erect the flamingo.

House said his wife, Amy Miley-House, had suggested to the six men that several flamingoes be put in the yard, but they opted for the large one. An admittedly amused House said it was fitting for his birthday, which was Monday, because he is a fan of "tacky things."

House said he plans to leave the flamingo up until at least Friday, although it was taken down temporarily due to a passing storm Tuesday.
