Well here we are the day after! The little gift Miss Agnes gave us was to cute! We thank her for her hard work. I just love folkart! Hence the Sock Monkey thang.....
The presents have all been opened,the Early Times has all been drank and the Christmas music is no longer playin on the radio. Next stop New Years! More partyin I say! Bring on 2009 with a bang! It'll take us all a good week to recover from our Christmasin! By then we all shall be ready to throw down New Years Eve! And throw down we shall!!!!!!!!!! Here In Bubba's Sock Drawer we hope everyone had a blessed Holiday Season. We are wishin ya'll the best in the New Year and hope things go well for everyone in 2009. So rush off to the grocery store and buy ya'll's turnip greens,black eyed peas and Hog jawl for the new years celebration dinner the followin day. True,we'll all be hung over so you'll need food subtinance to recover. The parades and football will air on New Years day for sure just as it has for years and years. We here at Bubba's Sock Drawer hope we have entertained ya'll and brought a good laugh and smile to ya'll's faces. That's what we intended ta achieve. I love ta make folks laugh and have a good time.

Christmas Sock Monkey and we're open for business! As promised I said I'd show off my Christmas costumes! I have ta tell ya'll it's been a wonderful Christmas thus far! So sit back and grab yourselves a cocktail and get cosy! First and formost we must discuss this crazy weather we been havin here in the Nashville area. This week has been really all over the place with the temps! One day it was 9 degrees,the next it was 20 degrees and the next was 67 degrees and at present,it's currently in the 50's! What a Christmas! What about jingle bells and dashin through the snow? I had the idea of creatin a snowman out of mud because of all the rain! It has rained all week!
Twas the night before Christmas and I decided ta pour myself up a Christmas cocktail and sit back and jaw with Jack Skelington himself! Yes,him in the flesh! Well...bone anyway,but ya'll know what I'm talkin bout! I'm a Christmas Sock Monkey on a mission. He keeps tryin ta steal our Christmas Holiday! I keep tellin him,"give it up dude." It didn't work the first time ya tried it and it certainly isn't gonna work now! Take a sip of your whiskey and your more than welcome ta come and join me by the tree. Eventhough your pure Halloween,ya can still Christmas with us. Don't make me go all Elf on yourself!
I decided ta run up the street and take a few pictures of more light displays ta be all Christmasey and all. I was runnin by this one when I snapped the picture,so it turned out a little fuzzy. Ya'll can still see the lights. So forgive me for that one.
I hope ya'll enjoyed them as much as I have. Now that we have that part of Christmas out of the way,we can really throw down some bottled holiday cheer! Ya'll know I'm talkin bout the Early Times! Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night! I can't be sure,but I thought I saw Santa's sleigh fly over or somethin! Perhaps it was a UFO,but I stopped and wished them a Merry Christmas just the same.
I just climbed up in the Christmas tree ta check the lights out and all. Not ta mention I wanted ta show off my Christmas outfit.
Mike's Bear collection is sittin by the tree.
These two cute lookin characters are the newest members to our collection and were Mike's Christmas presents to himself. Personally I think they look like raindeer poop,but the more they have been dragged through the mud and run over by a truck,the better he likes them. He calls it personality! Personality shit! Wheres my cocktail?! Maybe....just maybe they'll start ta look better! LOL!
So then I wondered over to check out the Christmas Cactus. Some checkerboard chick was sittin there. I was beginnin ta wonder just how much Early Times I've had or does she really look like this? I wished her a Merry Christmas and decided ta move on.
And check this out! An action figure with a action figure! G.I.Joe got the Bubba action figure for Christmas! Comin soon to a store near ya'll! 1-800-BubbaSockMonkey! If ya'll call tonight while I'm in the Christmas spirits...It's buy one get one! All for two easy payments of $29.99! G.I.Joe not included!
Now ya'll know we live in the south,right? This is the Santa suit for warm weather. Short sleeves and short pants! So what do ya'll get a Sock Monkey whom has everything? If ya'll had ta ask the question ya weren't payin attention. Can ya'll say Early Times? Let me run the picture again so ya'll know what it looks like!
Movin on to the next shot.......
So here I am with the Christmas goodies. Someone left us a Christmas package. I think her name is Miss Agnes. Mike works with her. We're savin it for Christmas mornin! She's so sweet.
Now ya'll know Mike is a cake decorator by profession. This is one of his red velvet cakes made for his customers. Mike's Christmas treats are spread across all of Nashville and share all the Christmas tables. Merry Christmas Ya'll! Bubba

Merry Christmas Possums and Peeps this wonderful Holiday season! Candy canes grace my Sock Monkey lap! No problems in my book! The Christmas Music fills the air here in our holiday home. The Temp ya'll ask here in Nashville? 9 degrees this mornin!!!!! Cold doesn't even begin to cover it! We might reach a woppin 25 drgrees today accordin to the radio. Hey Possums,Bubba's red heel smile is gonna freeze in place.
Not even an Alyce Keener can fuck up this Christmas! The Christmas spirit Is filled in our home! We are not even payin attention to her bullshit! Whatever BITCH! Mike and I don't have the funds for Christmas,so we upped our comcast movie channels for our Christmas. That was gonna be our Christmas. Low and behold the TV went out! Do ya'll think God is tryin ta tell us something? We just sit and stair at the cable box! Isn't it pretty? Has two little lights on it. Mathes the Christmas tree if ya'll ask me. We have been reduced to a log cabin Christmas and we're still blessed! Merry Christmas all around us in our need of a Christmas miracle! Everything happens for a reason,so they say. Us with our Waltons radio on a playin the Christmas tunes! And in the words of The Grinch,watch out I'm gettin my quotation marks ready....."Chritmas doesn't come from packages,boxes and bags." Maybe it's so very much more...
So I sit here with my plate of Christmas goodies! Gettin my sugar high and lovin Christmas! Mike pours himself another Christmas cocktail as his grin spreads wider than the one the Grinch has! But we are very happy and know that God has blessed us!
The pecan pies have been baked and they smell heavenly! Mike won't let me touch them until Christmas! He shore did smack my little Sock Monkey hand! I splashed his Christmas cocktail in his face and we just laughed and had a good old time! All the while Alyce Keener with a snarl on her face! We laughed and giggled knowin this fact! DEAD POODLE!@!!! And then we laughed and giggled some more!
Just look at all the Christmas stuff! Isn't it so pretty? We truely are havin a log cabin Christmas,but somehow that doesn't seem to matter. We have nothing,but our two Chihuahus and each other and that is enough for us! The blessins keep on flowin!
If we had a Christmas table this year,it would look something like this. Wine flowin from every corner! Some one screamed PATRICK from the corner,but we weren't even payin any attention to them! Not sure what was up with that,but we know it has something to do with the Bitch Keener shit. Degree deorant out on the front lawn along with a bottle of booze and waitin for the conversations to commence! And then we laughed and giggled some more! Rollin on the floor this time around! Tears streamin from our eyes as we could not contain ourselves!
The homemade Ganache bein stirred and chocolatey goodness awiats us. True,we are gonna throw it in Bitch Keeners face as the Fried Green Tomato's food fight commences in the Kitchen! Merry Christmas! Bubba

Christmas central here in Nashville! My human,Mike, took me to work with him last night and we had a Christmas night together. Being a professional cake decorator of 30 years,at holiday time puts him on over nighters to keep up with the demands of his fabulosity!
Gingerbread houses are poppin up all around! This one was done by his coworker. We won't reveal her name. But it's awesome just the same.
Along the ride to Mike's job,we encountered several light displays. We just had to stop and shoot photos of them. Now these are not the fabulous ones we want to show you,but it's a start. As Christmas progresses,we will be showin ya'll many light displays in our nieghborhood.
The chicken is cookin in the oven and smells great. Mike has lost 80 pounds on his diet and is lookin good! The light displays are awesome! Love it and is part of Christmas for us. Funds do not permit us to have Christmas,but we find ways to make a wonderful Christmas. We are blessed and share Christmas in other ways.
This is the street outside of Mike's job. Isn't it Christmasey? Love the season and all it has to offer!
Here I am sittin in the poinsettias in the Job. Christmas in awesdsome and we love all the decor it provides. Beautiful I tell ya!
This is one of the many Christmas trees his job has on display. We just had to stop and take the photo. It takes our breath away.
Welcome ta Nashville. These guitars hang on the wall. Artist have done their magic on them.
In Nashville ya got ta have the guitar bling! It would not be Nashville without it!
Everyone we know has a band and is tryin ta be the next country music star. Us ya'll ask? We just Sock Monkey all over the place. We'll leave the country music to the pro's.
Hey! Merry Christmas!
Funny thing bout Nashville. Today it's in the 60's temp wise,but Sunday calls for snow. Go figure!
Here I am showin my mug in the street scene ya'll already seen.
Mike had ta do 50 gingerbread men on his job. Here I am showin ya'll the Christmas treats!
This is Bubba bein all Christmas spirit in Nashville. Happy Holiday! Bubba

Hello bloggers! And Merry Christmas. Ever wondered what a Sock Monkey looks like in a Christmas tree? Well now you've seen everything! Here in my retro tree and all. Yes it's original! No remakes here. Love the old time Christmas stuff.
Right down to the stockins hung by the chimney with care. These stockins are Mike's original stockins from the 60's. More for decoration this day and time. Want to keep them as long as we can.
Mike and I have wonderful memories of Christmas.
Have yourself a Socky Little Christmas! I want to see everyones Christmas Sock Monkey photo's. Show us your Christmas Sock spirit!
I've got a Santa suit! I'll save that photo for Christmas eve. My Human found a stockin out in the back alley last year and turned it into a Santa suit for me! I know all ya'll are waitin for that!
Pour yourself a cocktail and come sit by the tree with us! Bubba

Greetins Holiday shoppers,Peeps and Possums! Twas walkin through Walmart the other day and much to my Sock surprise,Christmas music was playin! What the #@$%*! Please,not before we feast on the turkey! Looks like they are tryin to get ya'll holiday shoppers in the mood for spendin! Keeps the economy goin! But if we don't have it,why we can't spend it. Perhaps another tax check would be in order? LOL! Sounds like a plan ta me! Run off now and barrow the money from China!
Christmas my ass cried the Sock Monkey dressed in red! I jumped with all my might on top of the Grinch! I wresstled him to the ground and begged and pleaded for him to steal Christmas back for the moment! We are not in need of the Christmas Holiday just yet! He simply replied"It doesn't come in packages,boxes and bags"! It's rather difficult to explain. So...I guess our fate for now is to continue on hearin the Christmas tunes for two solid months! Ouch!
So I just got my cup and saucer down and poured myself another cup of tea. This would require some serious thought. Perhaps I could live with my Ipod on till it's time for the Christmas spirit to hit . I simply throw my hands in the air and walk away......Bubba

Hellllooooo.....Are ya'll listenin? Anybody in there? Oh there you are! Sock Monkey salutations! Sorry I haven't blogged in a while. So much goin on these days! Why there's votin for President and Halloween has come and gone. Sayin goodbye to George W.! Sorry I didn't mean to sound so excited at the last comment. The scary part? We still have to pay him for the rest of his life. Tax dollars at work. But enough about all that rubbish duckie! Obama it is and it is what it is! So there ya have it. A new four years off and runnin. Soon as we swear the dude in.
And the wheel on the bus goes round and round.....Ya'll know the song. How many Presidents have you seen come and go now Mike? Let's see...You'll be 50 in April....I'd say a good many. Wow! Why your old enough to know if history repeats itself! I say old chap! What was the big bang like?LOL! Quite right old man! You've seen a 1/2 a century go by. You say the history of rock and roll was eventful? Yes I agree.
I'm sittin in my rockin chair as well. I'm the same age old man. Don't you fret.
Sittin on the sidelines of the election. Happy mid week! Bubba
