This old bear came to us from Ebay some months back. He needed a restorin gig somethin awful. So here he is. The after photo. Face done up in the 1960's bears. The before photo is on one of my Christmas blogs. Can ya guess which one? I'll leave that for ya'll ta look up. So challenge yourselves ta find out the answer. Mike has a soft spot when it comes ta restorin old Teddies.
Mike and I and the two Chihuahus all snuggled up on the sofa togehter ta watch The Miss America peagent on TV last night! Mario Lopez the anoucer,dressed up in his tux. Yesss-sir,was lookin sharp for the viewers. The finalist dressed in swim suits and evenin gowns. Twas a night of glamor,sparkle and talent. I was hope'in Miss Tenn. would win the title. She did pretty good! She was there till the very end. Miss Georgia took first runner up! Mike and I are from Atlanta,our hometown. So that was special. Applause for her! But now.....Miss Indiana (Katie Stam) took the judges by storm! And there ya see the picture up above of her bein crowned Miss America! The crowd goes wild! Tears flowin at her success! Rock on Katie girl! Applause from The Sock Drawer as well. Job well done. $50.000 for school fees ain't bad! Go-on wit your bad self! Ya go be smart ya hear? Make us all proud.
This here is a print done by Ms. Agnes Barton. Just enter Betty Turbo in ya'll's search engines and her store will come up. She blogs as well. So ya might want ta go and check her out. Her likeness of me is awesome!
Look at the Beer mug Mike got me! Just my size! From the thrift store. I'm a party'in Sock Monkey with purpose. Drinkin out of the finest crystal drink ware. Lead crystal Possums....Wow! I'm an uptown Sock Monkey. My celeb status has not failed me. LOL!
Some colorful coffee mugs another thrift store find. We had solid Black goth mugs before. Very depressin! Yuk! Don't worry. They've been tossed out. Now we can drink coffee with style and flair. Sittin in a Cafe in Paris. Coffee drinkin an event. The times of your life kind of stuff. The best part of wakin up,is Flodgers in your cup. Ya'll know the tune from the commercial. Or the guy with the mustache and Donkey walkin through the mountian grown coffee fields. What a coffee break!
That about covers it for today. Bubba
