So what does one do on the last afternoon of your vacation? Well....there are those of us whom have a box full of monkey socks in the house. We decided ta see what we could come up with. playin with the socks I mean. Mike bein the artist he is,always comes up with somethin pretty cool. The sun is shinin today,but still really cold out. Suppose to get down in the 20's tonight. Which brings us back to our original topic.
I think this should become an indoor sport! An artist challenge,if ya will. Kind of a fun thing ta do on a cold day. Why do it ya'll ask? It's all bout the photograph! Useless information. Usin an artful eye and a good digital camera.
Dear old Nelson never knew his socks have been most famous since they created the knittin machine back in the 1800's.
This one makes me look like I'm in a crowd of Sock Monkeys. Like on the streets of New York or somethin. Use ya'll imaginations. Do ya see it now....?
That's how we work the day away in the merry old land of OZ.We've all heard the song before. It's always a horse of a different color.
Tip toe throught the monkey socks! Bubba
Good Mornin Possum's! It's the last day of Mike's vacation. Sorry ta say he has to return to work tomorrow. A good time was had by all durin his 8 days off. Been really cold out and it was great we didn't have to get out in it. Stayin home where its warm and let the bloggin flow. Got a nice cup of coffee ta go along with it. A hot bubble bath brewin in the upstairs bathroom. Now that's livin!
Time for ya'll ta pay attention again. Here is a little Teddy Bear Mike is gonna restore. This is the before picture. A Panda Teddy from the 50's. Now,Mike and I were both thinkin that this dirty lookin tannish fur was suppose ta be white and probably was in the beginnin. Not true! Mike washed him two time yesterday and even with a fingernail scrub brush. The fur really is tan. That was a shocker.
He's been loved and loved! So we'll see how he ends up turnin out in the weeks ta come. Then he will join the ranks of Mike's Teddy Bear collection.
On the fashion side of things.....A new Sock Monkey dress design has been created. Thought ya'll might want ta see it. I'm surprised this hasn't been a challenge on Project Runway. The Sock Monkey challenge. Far be it for me ta say so. I'm just a mild mannered southern Sock Monkey. I'll leave the runnin of Project Runway to the experts.
Jane Goodall has been in the Sock Monkey news here of late. She autographed one of us Sock Monkeys and they auctioned it off. Proceeds probably went to chimp research or somethin. Not quite sure what that was all about. She is the worlds leading expert on Chimp research. She goes out into the jungles where chimp families live and live among them to study them. She gets excepted into their families So she can watch up close. It really is amazin! These are wild chimps livin out free in the jungle. They could tare us apart limb by limb if they so chose to. They learn to trust her. The Sock Drawer is in awe of her work. Great lady!
And what better place to insert The flyin monkeys,right? Jane loved it! Ya'll know she did. I shouldn't have ta tell ya'll that.
A straight jacket for the nonbelievers. LOL! I need to fill my coffee cup on that note.
Have a great Thursday! Bubba
