Flamingos v Gnomes

It is a well-known fact that I have an immense respect for pink flamingos, and...

... you would have thought that flamingos could really kick some gnome booty.

funny pictures of cats with captions

You would have been wrong.

On a brighter note, we received an award!!! Buster, Sephie & Bailey the Kerry Blue Terriers passed this fun award on to us!

The award states: "This blog invests and believes in PROXIMITY -- nearness in space, time and relationships!" In other words, blogs that receive this award "are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

Thank you Sephie, Buster & Bailey! We will proudly display this award and share it with these goober friends:

Madison, Ruby, Winnie Woo, Janie the Airegirl, Mr. T-Bone Beaseley, Sherman Penny & Lola, Bob T. Bear esq, and Dilly! We love you guys!

Goober Love,

Stanley & Stella

with love, Madison said...

Wow thank you for the award! Madison is so EXCITED. And, we are totally distressed about the flamingos. That would never never never go over in sunny south Florida. That is not how you respect a flamingo. H-Mom is planning some kind of revenge. Madison is worried.

Those pink birds are just playing dead. They will rise up and take over the gnomes at any minute.

Butchy & Snickers said...

Awwwwh, poor Flamingos! We're with Asta, we like the flamingos better. Congratulations on your awards.
Sorry to say you must have missed the post we had about the MIA koi this summer. Poor Koi Stanley, gone for good we think this time. We're renaming koi this year that are missing. So when the babies from this last summer are big enough to keep track of, there will be another Stanley, hehehe. Mama gets so sad when the koi are missing. She dreads this spring, sure hoping none die from the cold winter. Lots of people around here lost many koi last year due to the long hard winter. Can't imagine what this winter will do. So far we haven't seen any mink so that's good. Have a fun weekend!
Luv & wirey hugs,
Butchy, Snickers, Ruby, Sylvester & Scuby

So I watched that whirling Stella movie and then I went to your Vimeo and watched the tug movie.

Conclusion? Stella is INSANE! Is she an actual doggie? Perhaps maybe some sort of Tazmania Devil thing? I mean you are like ten times her size and she's all growling and stuff. I love it when you whip her around. Hee hee.

congrats on your award!

those flamingos look so defeated. we're surprised that you were not there to defend them, but we guess that you had to let them fight their own fight.

stupid gnomes.
