Stanley's Gift - Part I

Blogger is being mean, so I'm splitting this into TWO parts... see below for Part II.

First of all, thanks for all the concern about my pancreas. It's been pretty well behaved and I haven't had any problems! I've been giving it Anger Management classes, so I think it's picking up on some of the self-control techniques - whew! Sam, you should try it! Also, I've found out that most of the things I've been helping myself to are Aunt Tweeks! That means they are millions of years old and already have scratches and dents, and therefore it takes everyone a long time to notice my handiwork! Woot! Thanks, Aunt Tweeks! Speaking of THANKS, a big Thank You goes out to Stanley! Look what came in the post yesterday!

From the Republic of Gooberstan, addressed to Tadpole Pomegranate! That's MEEE! I had to pose for the obligatory photo, but then I got to tear into it! Check it all out!

You'll never believe what I found first!!! My very own PINK FLAMINGO!!!

Unbelievable! Look at it in all its gloriousness!

And I got a letter from the personal paw of Stanley! The President of Gooberstan himself!

And what just might be my favorite - a magnet with Stanley himself on there!!! I put it on my jail because Stanley sent it to ME, and Massah cannot put it on the refrigerator because it is NOT hers, no matter how much she wants it.

And, of course, look who wants to steal my stuff. Mean Sister Fig pretends to play with the DEVIL CUZ Stanley sent her (how very appropriate...) but notice how she whips around and steals MY flamingo before I can stop her!

See below for the rest of the story....

Hey Tad,
It was nice of you to share that PINK Flamingo with Fig! It almost seemed like you didn't know what to do with it! LOL!
Stan is a great pal!! :)

You sure got a lot of nice presents!!

Stanley said...


That flamingo is NOT for the Figster. Don't even let her get her paws on it. It is *your* special present and it even looks a little like you!

Goob love,

Oh my dog! Do you really live in Normal? That is so cool! I live on Easy Street--really, I'm not kidding. By the way, I think you look very nice as a mid-century pauper. But better as a normal banana. Wait, a NORMAL banana! Ha ha I made an accidental joke!!!


Joe Stains said...

um Tad, that flamingo kinda sorta looks like you. I mean, in a good way of course.

leah said...

well everyone else already said it, but that flamingo looks just like you! HAAAAAAAA! especially the long skinny hairless legs!

those are some awesome presents! the goob rocks!

Oh wow! That's one really huge box of cool toys! Stanley is just the BEST isn't he!? Hehehe, you look sooo funny squeaking that flamingo & I couldn't stop laughing when Fig stole it & dragged it out of the room. So funny! Gonna read part two now.

Love licks,
