You have all been askin' soooo here is the story of my love for 87.

87 was my mom's favorite number when she was a little girrrrl. I don't know why... and I think it was sooooooooooooooo long ago that she furgets. hehehe
Butt she isn't 87 years old... even though she acts like it some times.

Soooo when I came here to live it was the only number she barked about.
You know stuff like.. "Frankie, I told you about that 87 times already. And Frankie Furter, do I have to let you out 87 times a day? OR Look at this mess... you have drug out 87 toys."
SOOOOO 87 USED to be my mom's favorite number, butt NOW... it's MINE.
Hey... if you didn't see Ruby and Penny's Friday Post.... you've gotta get up there and take a look. They have.... SQUIRREL ON A STICK!!!!

It is good to make the humans repeat themselves 87 times to make sure they are sincere. Especially when they are saying things like DropIt and Off.

Yay! I'm so very much happy to know the "Story of 87"! And I don't think your mom prolly ever acts 87. It sure seems like even if she WAS 87, you'd keep her young!

Wiggles & Wags,

PeeS. I saw Ruby and Penny's post and think that's like the most amazing thing ever and they should make lots of them and sell 'em for a bajillion green papers!

Ruby and Penny said...

Thats funny about the 87 story.Everyone needs a favorite number~~I hear the # 10 here alot. Do I have to tell you 10 times not to do that etc. But Moms favorite is 4 cuz she had 4 kids.


Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Haha, then my mom's number could be 1000. "I told you a thousand times!

Thank you furr finally letting the "cat out of the bag" about the #87, Frankie! And all this time I thought it was your mom's favorite number! Who knew?!! I can just imagine your mom asking you if she has to let you out 87 times, etc! Too funny! I'm sure your mom is happy that everyone knows she is NOT 87! But even if she was 87 years old she'd still be as funny as she is now!
I read about the "squirrel on a stick" and it was a funny story!
Thanks for giving Henry an "A" for effort after taking Little Miss Pearl's quiz! He wondered who would give him a passing grade furrst and it just so happened to be from you and your teacher mom! Yippee!

Scout and Freyja said...

Momma's favorite numbers are 1 and 3 and 6. All of the numbers have been in the address of the home where she grew up and the first home she bought and the second home she bought and our phone number and the phone number she had when she was a kid. Isn't that weird or curious or - well - spooky?

We're gong over to check out the squirrel on a stick!

BRUTUS said...

Well Frankie, thanks to you the number 87 has crept its way into our vocabulary too! Funny how that happens!

Everytime time I hear 87 I think of you, my friend!

Sam said...

87's such a unique favorite number. Most people have a single digit favorite number. I like your strategy better.. keeps thing interesting. Thanks for sharing the 87-year long history of your number.

George The Lad said...

Sure it is a big number!
Kises and hugs

Sandra said...

Oh we love the story about 87. We had noticed you liked to use that number a lot but thought it was just part of your charm. Great to get the back story. Also Mom wants to say that she will totally take part in the name game. She doesn't know why it didn't occur to her before to have a post about that. You are so smart! Can't wait to share.

87 sounds like a really great number but we're not to sure about the Squirrel on a stick!

Saw your note on Dory's blog about the Silly Photo Challenge. Everyone is invited. Hope you will come over and play. There will be squirrels.

I didn't know exactly why, but i figured as much about that #. we use #s like 17, 47, 437:

ususally it has a 7 in it. that's why we sometimes pick up your # 87 in our posts, because it has a 7 in it and we love mentioning Frankie. what can we say? we're big fans.
