Frolicking Goob

Lately, I've been doing a lot of what my hooman girl calls "frolicking" in the crisp morning aire. Now that he's back in action, my favorite companion on these romps is my faithful (though headless) flamingo. As you can see, I generally prefer my flamingo protruding from the left side of my mouth like a cigar.

I wasn't convinced that I'm a frolicker, but my girl busted out this definition.

frol·ic Spelled Pronunciation[frol-ik] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation noun, verb, -icked, -ick·ing, adjective
1. merry play; merriment; gaiety; fun.
2. a merrymaking or party.
3. playful behavior or action; prank. –verb (used without object)
4. to gambol merrily; to play in a frisky, light-spirited manner; romp.
5. to have fun; engage in merrymaking; play merry pranks. –adjective
6. merry; full of fun.

Yep. That's me.

The rest of these photos are pretty blurry (because I'm frolicking... DUH).

Occassionally I let my flamingo protrude from the right side of my mouth, just to mix things up.

This photo essay brought to you from the photo archives of GooberStan.

Does your flamingo have a name, Stanley? Maybe something pretty and girlie seeing as she's pink? I guess it would have to be a headless sounding name! hehehe
I wish I could frolick with you in your yard!

Love ya lots,

fee said...

hi stan, that headless flamingo looks like a chunky piece of ham to me. did you eat up its legs and head?

my e-mail is – are you sending me a private love note? teehee.

Woofers Stanley

You definitely look like a frolicy sort to me (takes one to know one). I couldn't help noticing your
flamingo is missing it's legs as well as it's head - this seems a mite careless to me - maybe it just can't 'stand up' to the attentions of a GooberStan.... tee hee.

Well done for rescuing your humans.

Hi Stanley, don't feel weird about frolicking. we do it too. it's fun, don'cha think? frolicking is our speciality, but we don't have a headless pink flamingo. that's a very cool toy, but we're still worried about that head. did you eat it?


Ruby Bleu said...

Randi said...

Hi Stanley! You definately define the word Frolic - Do you know that Merry Christmas in German is frolic-gay-vine-a-tin? Just a little knowledge on a Monday morning...

I have a stuffed flamingo....she's very pretty...

Love & Licks,

Momo & Pinot said...

I never done "frolicking" but I should try!! I guess I just need to have a headless pink flamingo!!

Pinot tries to wrestle with me but I am not good at. Well, you know that is my excuse. hehehe... :) I sometime need some quiet moment by myself.

Ike said...

I'm not sure how you can frolic and still be macho, but you pull it off!

Suki Sumo said...

I like it! I have a penchant for pink toys as well. I'm glad you liked the pink eli-butt. I like the headless flamingo! Something tells me we'd be good wrasslin' buddies if given the chance, dude!

You look like you're having fun, Stanley! You sure like your flamingo, eh?


Kirby said...

Hi Stan,

I think you can frolic with the best of them. And with a headless flamingo in your mouth too! You are so coordinated!! I love to frolic at the park, since I'm walked most days (no yard :-( boo), the park is my main chance to frolic about. Too bad we don't live closer, we could frolic together! Have fun!

Your pal,

Asta said...

Ume said...

hiya Stanley,
it juz shows dat u r happee n having fun frolicking away!

Grammie said...

A good frolic is what everyone should have. It would make them feel much better. Dog blogging works also. Maybe Santa will bring you a new flamingo, though it won't be the same.

Murphey said...

And what a frolicker you are! Looks like lots of fun, and a flamingo stogie, I think someone should sell those things.


Lenny said...

Love that flamingo, Stanley! He seems very merry as well, despite his lack of a head.

Your friend, Lenny

William Tell said...

It looks like 'Mingo's legs went the same way his head did. hee hee

Tadpole said...

Lorenza said...

Hi, Stan
Sure is great to see you frolicking! You are the best!
Have a good night

Agatha and Archie said...

Our main man,We think that they should put your picture in the dictionary next to the word frolic!!! Agtha says to tell Stellllla that she has posed an interesting question to her( cuddle tiome) and has to think this one out... Love A+A Dude That flamingo doesn't look too well.....

Patience-please said...

Your frolicking follies made us all feel fancifully free!

fanks, er, thanks!

Sophie Brador said...

Stanny! I know the Stellanator is not a cat, but she might just be teeny enough to fit into a kitty's head gear. Check out my bloggie for some stylin' Stella accoutrements.


Martha said...

You are a terrific frolicker! Love, Martha

Scruffy & Lacie said...

Oh Stanley...ur poor flamingo seems to be missing some feathers among other a where is his head...or her head as the case may be? U didn't eat it did u? I'm not sure how flamingo tastes; probably like chicken. Did u put BBQ sauce on it? Or perhaps a little wine for Flamingo Marsala?


Mumsie has to address all of our cards...we're workin' on it...takes her a while to do anything. Like feed us.

Freezin' our butts off here...gonna go hang in my bed...

Pacco de Mongrel said...

the Corgi Girls said...

Good frolic Stan! We like how you keep it real with your flamingo, where was lil Stel during this though? Does she frolic? Are you giving her lessons?

B.T.Bear (esq.) said...

HEHEHEHE! You look like you're having fun! Have you seen the video of me frolikin? It's here:


Mojo said...

Stan, you're cracking me up. What is it with your big pink cigar? And is it just me, or does Headless Pink Flamingos sound like some shambolic university band with too many guitarists and an underfed singer?


ps Your face curls are gorgeous, by the way.
