Leanne in Mifflinburg, Pa. sent this photo and wrote: “Look who I found checking out my scooter ‘Betty’ at our Christkindl Market! St. Nick says he’s think of going green and getting his elves hook up, perhaps pink for all the girl elves? Got to love Ho Ho. Best of Wishes This Holiday Season!” Thank [...]

This is a photo by Shaners Beckers that is another Flickr find. This fleet of Vespa LXs is dressed up as flamingos, he says, to advertise pink flamingos arriving at the Seattle zoo. I wonder what the riders were wearing?
