Good afternoon Possum's of the Sock Monkey house today! And look at the backdrop of choice! Love the old fashion feel it has to it! Mike thinks it will end up as a recover for a chair he picked up on the side of the road and dearly loves. A little paint and a quick recover with this fabric, it will turn out to be a work of art! And ya'll know I'll be johnny on the spot with a photo and all should that take place. On with the news of the rest of the day!
On the sadder side of things....Tony Curtis has passed away at the age of 85. It saddens my Sock Monkey heart cause I have watch his movies for many,many,many years! Now don't go makin me go and spill my age! Although you guys know how old I am if ya'll been payin attention to old Bubba's blogs all along. That in itself could be a whole nother blog in itself! Don't get me started on my makins, whereabouts and history!! I was almost at the very beginnin of the very existance of Sock Monkeys! Oops! Done let the cat out of the bag! Oh well! Its a beautiful day and the sun is shinin! I don't hear any birds out so I'm asummin they have already started their flights south.
News of the alley way out back ya'll ? Here is another picture of another chair or foot stool if ya'll will sittin around and just screamin out for me to come along and blog about it! So here it is. I know ya'll couldn't make through your lives with out knowin bout this stool. So out the back door Mike and I scampered with camera in tote. Mike said to say cheese,but I don't like cheese all that much and anyhow my smile is plastered on my face, so I just posed for the picture. BAM! Sock Monkey style! Cain't touch this! Don't make me go all MC Hammer on ya'll! Break dancin all over the alley way! And if I take a mind to I'll be jumppin on the foot stool with all my Sock Monkey Might! Have a Blessed day!!Bubba

The half moon of the evenin is mighty pretty this time of the year. nice cool evenin to sit out on the porch and enjoy a cup of coffee. The temps here in Nashville got down to 49 last night. Twas cold when i Awoke this A.M. Nothing a good cup of Joe couldn't fix! Rubbin the sleep out of my button eyes and reachin for my warm bathrobe so I can stumble down the stairs and dive into the coffee pot! Just like a hot tub! As I sit here and let the coffee trickle over my head pour myself a cup of ambition and yawn an strecth and try ta come to life. Get out your game boards and have a good old fashion family night!Bubba

Good evenin Possum's! Has been a wonderful cloudy fall day. The air cool all day! I guess fall time has crept in on us. Glad for that! What did ya'll think about the elevator funny? I laughed so hard there were tears streamin down my face and still get a chuckle when it comes to mind. One of my Peeps emailed that to me about ten years ago. I hung on to it all this time! After I typed it here I finally laid it to rest in the garbage can,but I wanted to share it with ya'll first. Now ya'll know I'm not the best typer in the world,so it took me quite a while to get that entire thing blogged. I like to see everyone with a smile and a laugh! That's what this blog is for,smiles all around! Welcome to fantasy island! (Sock Monkeys scatter!) As you can see, Mike and I pulled out the Monopoly board this evenin! The game has been going hard and fast! I won't let it slip who owns Park Place! Three hotels already. Piles of fake money everywhere! All the pretty colors! Golly Gosh! Why put your crown on and parade around the livingroom,we're goin on a Journey! I know that sounds pretty crazy,but ya otta try it sometime! It'll make ya laugh! Plum giggle right down to your toes! Say....have you ever danced with a Sock Monkey in the moonlight? Don't knock it till you have tried it! Happy Monday evenin!Bubba

Things to do in an elevator
1. Make race car noises when anyone gets on or off.
2.Blow your nose and offer to show the contents of your kleenex to other passengers.
3. Grimace painfully while smacking your forehead and muttering: "shut up,all of youjust shut up!"
4.Whistle the firstseven notes of "It's a small world" incessantly.
5. Sell girl scot cookies.
6. on a long ride,sway side to side at the natural frequency of the elevator.
8.Crack open your breifcase or purse, and while peering inside ask: " Got enough air in there?"
9.Offer name tags to everyone getting on the elevator. Wear yours upside-down.
10.Stand motionless in the corner, facing the wall, without getting off.
11.When arriving at your floor,grunt and strain to yank the doors open,then act embarrassed when they open by themselves.
12. Lean over to another passenger and whisper: "Noogie patrol coming!"
13. Greet everyone getting on the elevator with a warm handshake and ask them to call you admiral.
14. One word: Flatulence!
15. On the highest floor, hold the door open and demand that it stay open until you hear the penny you dropped down the shaft go "plink" at the bottum.
16.Do Tai Chi exercises.
17. Stare,grinning at another for a while, and then announce: "I've got new socks on!"

Good evenin Possum's! Ya'll remember my little shabby shek white chair? Well...shabby shek is out, so I decided to spend the afternoon paintin it red. I loved the way it turned out! Matches my brown sock red heeled smile. Not to mention I had on a red outfit.
Watch out!!!!!! Wet paint goin on here. be sure not to sit down or the back side of your outfit will be red! I have been sittin here watchin the paint dry this afternoon! What else does a Sock Monkey do in his spare time? Just a little red chair paint update. I am lovin the new look! I know that in time this to will turn into the shabby shek look of chipped paint. Just give it time.Bubba
It's a glorious Sunday and the weather is wonderfully cool day! The sun is shinin and the blessins, they are a flowin! Hello Possum's and Peeps!! Come on in to Bubba's Sock Drawer and sit a spell. Maybe, just maybe you will leave with a fantastic smile on your faces! Sock Monkey love all around! Lots has happen the last few days. My Dad got layed off from his Job,So we here at the Sock Drawer are askin for your prayers in this matter. Some times it's time to move on, but things of this nature can be very scarey. With God by our sides we can do anything it takes to make the transitions into new jobs and adventures in our lives. Found a little poem I'd like to share with you.....
Monkey see...Monkey do
collecting monkeys is fun to do.
Making friends out of socks,
the hobby that rocks!
No matter the season,
No matter the reason
Sock Monkey brings joy
whether a girl or boy

A friend who is sad,
Monkey see Monkey do!Bubba

Still posin on the pumpkins! The life and times of a Sock Monkey! Is there anything better? A good Sock Monkey hug and we're off and runnin! My birthday party was fun. Sorry for the collapse on the floor,but I was tuckered out! I'm gettin a little to old to keep that kind of pace anymore. Now for some news update....
Cher has decided to leave her Vegas show. Looks like it's time for another Farewell tour! The awesome Diva was quoted saying she missed the tourin thang!
That's better than 7 Harry Potters on a busy Tuesday afternoon! The last book will be made into two movies. The first part will be out this fall! Certainly can't wait to see that! But as the story goes,it will be sad when the last of the movies has come and gone. Is there life after Harry Potter? We'll just have to wait and find out won't we? The stories have more than kept us fans entertained for years! Just grab your Sock Monkeys and take them on a trip! That's all for now!Bubba

Good mornin Sock people! Please forgive me,but I was to tired after the party to bring the birthday update yesterday, so here it is! shortly after my Dad made the chocolate gravy and biscuits for breakfast,there was a knock at the front door. I would have answered it myself,but I can't reach the doorknob! So I turned to my Dad and said,hop on over to the door and answer it.
My Dad opens the door and this creepy guy with a Sock Monkey hat on jumped inside and sang Happy Birthday to me. I never had a singin telegram before! That was totally cool! He then went out to his van and brought in this birthday cake for me.
It was rockin the house Dude! Next thing I know...the band came runnin in!
Remember Kiss? This was their Sock Monkeys and they totally formed a band on their own!
The house filled up with Sock Monkey fans! Dude! It's a party! We're gonna rock this town,rock it inside out! Party like it's 1999!
It was like the party to end all parties! What a great day! Maybe my Dad ain't so old afterall! Have a great day Possum's and thank everyone for all the great birthday wishes!Bubba

Good evenin my Possum's. It's a sad day when I Bubba, the sock, the man, the legend have ta make a retraction from my very own blog. Ya'll remember this fire drill chick from this mornin right? She's a very nice lady that works with Mike and her real name is McCgray. Mike has a bad habit of callin her McCkay (remember he had brain trouble,But we don't talk about it *wink*). So my deepest Sock apologies to her for that mistake. Have a great evein!Bubba

How do ya splain to the cops that your Sock Monkey drown in a pot of veggie soup? he'll go all murder on your ass and stuff! Totally! He wouldn't be able to do a tape outline of the sock body. Talk about bein T'ed off!

It was a dark and stormy night...the kind of night any Sock Monkey would not go out on. There were no photo shoots lined up for such a furious night. The lightnin lit up the sky as if it were daylight out. The twilight of the stars glistened in the heavens as if they were glitter,but were hidden behind the darkest storm clouds one could imagine.
I sat alone on the toilet tank tryin to read a good book to distrack me from the ragin storm outside. Dee Linder writes a compellin story if I do say so myself. Yes say it with me ("Monkey Love") the name of the story. I tried with all my might to concetrate on the story at hand,but there were trees outside brushin up against the house as the wind blew so hard, the fall leaves danced in the night stormy air. Rainin so hard, we could hear it on the rooftop of our town house. I hear trash cans blow over with a crash scarin me down to my polyfil stuffin! Mike and his two Chihuahuas were fast alseep across the hall in their bedroom,leavin me all alone by myself to weather out the storm on my own.
I wondered downstairs in hopes comfort food would help. Mac and cheese on the menu for such a terrible night. The storm bein so bad I could hear the hard noodles in the box rattle. Out of the corner of my button eyes I noticed movement in the darkened corner of the kitchen. It was a shadow of the ragin blowin trees outside that created the scary shadows on the wall lit up by the lightnin. I gasp and jumped back in fear! Not a pretty sight a Sock Monkey tremblin to the very core. I tip toed past the window in hopes a loud burst of thunder wouldn't scare me so bad I would fall to the floor. Layin, tremblin on the cold hard tile floor. Mike came in and picked me up for a warm squishy hug. I was never so glad to see my human as I was at this very moment! Have a nice Friday!Bubba

Good mornin and welcome to another Bubba's Sock Drawer blog Possum's! This is the Pirates buried treasure I found it! Mine now! Would be great if it really was,but unfortunately just a bunch of old Mardi gra beads. Oooooouuu shiney! The day has started off really pretty!
I will start off the week with art work from a fan. This painted tile was sent to me in the mail. Thank you Lulu for such a fine piece of art. Hope you don't mind me sharin it with my Possum's and peeps.
Now onto Mike's artwork. He started with my Bubba mug in the center.
Mike is out at the grocery store and he does not know I'm revealin his art to the world at large. Ssssssshhhhhhhh! Don't tell him!
There are way more than these two shots. I'll have to sneak more later.
I was at the park this mornin. Swings are good hammicks!
This is a photo of a movie I was in. 9/11 Sock Monkeys. No really 911 Sock MOnkeys from a private collection. We will never forget!Bubba
