Good-Bye, Old Friend

It's official. My pink plastic flamingo is finally kaput! Farewell, plastic flamingo. As you go to that big recycling station in the sky, know that you served me faithfully as only a friend could.





I will miss you,
Stanley

Oh no....how did it happen Stanley?
Did it have something to do with Stella??
Who knows, another pink flamingo might fly your way sometime.

Take it easy.

Oh Stanley,

I am SO sorry to hear about Mr. Flamingo. What a shame it is...Maybe your momma will get you a new one that is even stronger and better! Maybe it will have cool flashing lights on it and make cool bird noises! Oh, that would be super cool Stanley!

See you soon!
Love, Herc

I'm sorry, Stanley! We know how much you loved your flamingo! Is Stella at the bottom of this?! You're such a sweet brother not to place any blame! Wait another month and the truth will come out!

Love ya lots,

Oh Stan. My heart is breaking for you. I only hope that some day, you will be able to find another pink flamingo who warms your soul as much as this one did.

Stanley,

I'm so sorry that your cool pink Flamingo broke. I hope Stella didn't have anything to do with it. Mom and I mailed off the package for you and Stella. I can tell you each item has the Kirby stamp of approval. Can't wait till you get it. Maybe some of the treats will take your mind off the loss of your flamingo.

Your pal,
Kirby

Oh Stanley, we tried to warn you about Stella aka Miss Imp! She is very clever and very sneaky! She is the devil in disguise. She would pretend to play with our toys and then hide them. She always gets her way because she is so tiny and cute (BIG SIGH). We miss her but we see she is in a great home and has a big brother to love and care for her (and teach her manners). We asked our mom to send another pink bird. Love and bearhugs, from Stella's other 2 brothers living in Clermont on Sundowner Ranch

How sad to lose a loved one. Remember you still have Merv, Stella and your girl. I wonder if Santa has a pink flamingo up at the North Pole that he would drop over Gooberstan on that magical day?

Randi said...

Dear Stanley & Stella -

So sorry for the loss of Mr. Pink Flamingo....I guess when you head is seperated from your bod, its time to go....Winston & I had unfortunate accidents with a few stuffies today too...don't tell my mom...we just try to scatter the guts & let her think its snowing inside our house in sunny San Diego..

Glad to hear Stells is learning the bylaws of Gooberstan....she has lots to learn, but the best teacher in all of the Gooberstanian Kingdom!

Love & Licks,
Randi

ps... RIP Mr. Flamingo..you were a faithful friend...
