Hello Royal watchers and my Possum fans! For those of ya'll that have been keepin up with the royal wedding day plans...I am sorry to say that...I...Bubba... will not be able to attend the royal function! I know, Iknow! I will be at ring-side on The Sock Drawer sofa watchin the world event. The Queen was all but in tears at my decline of this historic Gala! I politely kissed her hand and gave a little bow and backed out of the room. You see..... I did not want to upstage the royal couple on their glorious day! Focas Possum's! It's their day! I was amazed at the commoners that followed me all upon my leaving my limo! I thought it best not to go. So I shall put my tux back into the closet and make an official visit another time. My celeb status has awarded me the Royal ambassador for our Sock Monkey kind. And thus I except this prestigous position and am honored to be of service. I can say I was honored to visit the late Diana's grave side to pay my respects. What a glorious Lady she was. The world? We all loved her. We will be watchin our William and Kate fulfill their royal duties as the London bridge story continues. I bid ya'll good night and am closing The Sock Drawer. Bubba

Out of The Sock Drawer comes BUBBA, the legend of Sock Kind! Able to hang socks in a single bound!Faster than a sewin needle at a Sock fest! Able to leap tall jars of buttons! It's a knittin machine! It's a History! It's Bubba the Sock Monkey!!!!!
Howdy doo Possum's and road kill scrapped up for dinner!I say it's a fine rainy day in east of Nashville. It's rainin on sock night, my Socks are all wet.( sung to the tune of "it's raining on Prom night" from Grease.) A wink and a sigh from The Sock Drawer today! The coffee has been poured and the brew smells up the house! I love to visit the grocery store and sniff the coffee grinder.(giggle)True I walk away with coffee grinds stuck to my nose....but then I can smell them all day long! And some? They went straight to the brain! Caffiene lightnin shoots through my brain, my body flies up in mid air and stiffens straight as a board!I float gently down to the carpet with a Sock Monkey sigh.
Good day to you! Bubba

Good mornin Possum's and sock knitters! Got a wonderful picture for ya'll today! My Human and his God daughter went to the Twilight convention at Opryland hotel and got to meet one of the actors from Breaking Dawn movies. His name is Charlie and he is there in the center and of course me on his shoulder! Yes...I Bubba, rock with the movie stars! It was funny when my human handed me to him, He immediately threw me on his shoulder! He thought it was great I was a Sock Monkey! He even autographed our photo! We did not know he was gonna do that. Was quite the surprise! Hope all ia well with you guys and God Bless! Bubba

As ya'll well know. This was our paintin yesterday. Today it looks like this...
I was sittin in the back yard on my swing and takin a gander at the new addition. It's a work in progress. Don't really know where it'll take us,but our brains are a thinkin on the subject this very mintue. Why am I in my P.J.'s ya'll ask? Why it's a beautiful mornin to sit and have my coffee. What's the rush in gettin dressed up for the day? Have a great Thursday and don't work to hard. Bubba

Good evenin my chick-a-dee Possum's! Fletcher and I were sittin out in the back yard today enjoyin the warm sun shine. At our table and chair set we decided it would be a rather good day to work on the paintin that we started a few days ago.
This is before we started it. But we actually did bring it out to the back porch for a brushin or two. We won't reveal the additions we made just yet. Keep in mind we are not professional artist nor have we had any trainin in the feild. Ya'll should be really scared by now.
The antique store dummy dude was scared and he's severall blocks away! We figured he's just old and antique. Wrinkle up buddy! We're open! Come on in! Paint 2,3,4! Brush strokes of a poor outdated sock monkey of the 60's! Make love not war in a 60's kind of way! Aaaaaaawwwww...Fletcher! Love it when you sit there and just smile! Hey! I saw a man in his car today pickin his nose! He was diggin for gold! Big old gully-whopper of a booger! Nasty to say the Sock Monkey least! But a funny car ride! Bubba
It's a jello mold kind of mornin here in The Sock Drawer! Not really but fun ta say! And how in the Sam heel sock are my Possum's this mornin? If ya'll ask me Jello is kind of gross. Don't like the way it wiggles! It slaps the red heel smile off my face! Gigglin and a wigglin like something out of an alien movie. If ya drop something in it, it's like it's sapended in mid air!
Got a fun picture for today! This one we spotted on the way to the grocery store. I just happened to be in Mike's back pack with camera when this roadside stop was made. This is the stuff life is made of! An antique store dummy! Nothing better than that! Out of the back pack I came and the next thing I knew,I was sittin in the arms of this dummy! Come on in we're open! What's open? Not my red heel bum! That's for sure! Hey,I like the sun shades! I was wonderin....Is your matache a squirrel? Maybe not but bushy like one.
Alright Possum's, back to the new set for The Sock Drawer close! Happy Wednesday! Bubba

Spring time greetins my little Possum's! I'm sure ya'll remember the gold framed pictures found out by the trash cans. They have had a make over and are now servin as Bubba's Sock Drawer photo sets! Red is one of our favorite colors and always looks good with a gold frame around it! Not ta mention it matches my red lips! This is the first time out on this set. Just thought we'd take it out for a test drive.
It's the armless Sock Monkey! Hey armless Sock Monkey! What-cha doin without your arms? Not clappin his hands! That's for sure! LOL! Not scratchin his nose or snappin his fingers...Nose pickin? OUT OF THE QUESTION! If I tied your legs together, how would you pull yourself off the new set? Oh...I get it...just roll away.
And that's the skinny on a Tuesday night! Now close The Sock Drawer! Bubba

Twas a glorious afternoon out yesterday and a wonderful sunset goin on and all! Was walkin to the park for a walk and came across these two golden framed pictures. Dumped in the back alley of course. I'm not crazy about the fruited subject matter, but I find it creates a canvas for another Sock Monkey paintin! The bonus of it all, are the gold frames to frame them in once the paintins are complete. They wil require a little cleanin up, but not a problem!
I found this one with the other two as well! Really picked them all up for the frames. An artist can never have to many frames ya'll well know! Why do folks find a bowl of fruit interestin as art? These perplexin questions I always find myself faced with. The picture itself will be used for a canvas.
I'm here to report that Binga-Bonga is at it again! In the park we came upon that storm puddle again. My stunt double thought it was for puddle jumpin! He jumped right in and my human snapped the shot! Seems puddlin is his thang! That and food! Spagetti away! Rinse it off in the puddle! That's the Friday story Possum's! Have a great day! Bubba

Welcome to this Wednesdays addition of Bubba's Sock drawer Possum's. I'm afraid it's not that good this time. We all know and love the spring time, but it has it's draw backs at times. Ya'll know we had a terrible storm day before yesterday and I'm here to share with ya'll the aftermath of that storm.
You certainly guessed it! Broken trees all over the neighborhood
The parks and recreation Dept. has already been cuttin and removin these termite hotels so ta speak.
Same picture at a different angle. I'm sorry to report that more storms are on the way this comin Friday. Welcome to spring!
puddle diaster and I almost stepped in it! Can ya'll say puddle Sock Monkey?
I could have hollowed out this tree and lived in it.
This is Bubba's Sock Drawer reportin from storm side central. Have a great and pleasent Wednesday Possum's. Bubba

The suns up and that's an amazin feat considerin that we had storms all day yesterday! Hellllloooooo Possum's!!!! We seemed to have made it through the night and awoke to the brightest sun ya ever did see! I had to sport my sunglasses just ta get out of bed! The sun came peekin in through the curtains to blind me upon first eye open. Aaaaaawwwwwww rays of sun! A glorious day it will be! Popcorn! It's not just for breakfast anymore!
The coffees already been poured down! The first 55 cups was great! Just kiddin. The popcorn is to soak up the shakes I get from the coffee. Now I can run around all day like the craziest Sock Monkey ya ever did see!
In the swing of things, the new Hop movie is out! Hence the chicken cupcakes. My human knows James Marsden so we need to go and see the movie someday. James is in Nashville every now and again.
Tryin ta get in the swing of things as the mornin progresses. Who knows what the day will hold. Here's ta ya'll on your way ta work. Have a great and wonderful day! Bubba

That's right Possum's! It's monday and I personally know that most of us hate Mondays! It's the day of catch up on our jobs and long walks to the coffee machine of life! Ever wonder what ta do with all those coffee cans ya'll save and think someday I'll think of a project for them. So....the first project is to take a picture of ya'lls Sock monkey with them, cause it always looks cool! Any comments or ideas can be left on our comments section. I do require it to pertain to Sock Monkeys. That is a requirment in Bubba's Sock Drawer. (insert coffee sip here.)
So here I am the day after the paint fest. The book case has been moved back into the livingroom and we Sock Monkeys have been loaded up for a test display to see what it looks like. I love the bright cheerful colors! This book case was originally brown to fake the wood look. It remeinded me of a dark cave. I sometimes thnk my Human/Dad/owner is stuck in the 70's with all these bright colors and somehow I expect to find Marsha Brady's character spirit hauntin our dwellin. Taps will have to be called at that point. Marsha Brady in the Sock Monkey world looks a little something like this......
IT"S A Parralel UNiverse! The things the SCI-FI channel are made of! Maybe one of our coffee cans is a stargate of sorts! Thats just a therory. I'll just sit quietly on the back porch in a basket full of Teddy Bears and think on that for a while!
Yes! I know what ya'll are thinkin! We always run to our Teddy Bears when we are frightened. Good Call! There is a storm brewin out at this very moment, so it's a good place ta be! The thunder brewin overhead and all. The wind kickin up a dust bowl and I just might find myself flyin over the rainbow! And what if I get there and find that the Land of OZ has completely blown away. Then what? Does that mean there will be a new story unfold all together? Munchkins flyin in every direction is a scary thought! Maybe I've seen one to many movies.
I'll leave ya'll with this pleasent thought. Sock Monkeys out for a horse ride and pic-nic! Have a pleasent Monday and laugh at lifes ups and downs! Bubba

We here in The Sock Drawer are at it again! Found this book case out in the back alley as someone near, but not far was tossin it out! Trash to treasure as they say! Out came the paint and walla!!! A brightly colored place for us Sock Monkeys ta sit upon. Tis 81 degrees this afternoon, so the paint dried pretty fast.
Just takin a break from our spagetti tossin ways of the Sock Monkey variety!
Peace be with those on the sofa watchin the boob tube. Happy Sunday Sock treasses to ya'll! Bubba

Good evening Possum's and Friday night lovers! Most of you have gone out to movies this bein a Friday night and all, but I decided to play with my food! I just want to say that no Sock Monkeys were hurt durin this experiment. I also hired my stand-in for this fun and also very weird food excurshion. Ever wonder what a Sock Monkey looks like in a bowl of spagetti?
Well? Now ya'll know! By the way this is binga-bonga. Everybody say hello to Binga-Bonga! Heeeyyy...Binga-Bonga! What ya'll doin in that big old bowl of Spagetti?
Binga-Bonga- Why rollin around in spagetti sauce of course! Turned my ears green by the way!
And that's what we Sock Monkeys are a doin here in The Sock Drawer on a Friday night! I'm Bubba and this is Binga-Bonga! Happy Friday night!
Good afternoon Sock funkest and Possum's! Great news to report today! The Cobra has been found! I was a little worried we'd end up with a cross between the rattle snake and the cobra! Simply a problem we didn't need! Above you'll find me a sittin with the winner of the Mr. Sockford 2011 Contest from the SM festival!! Would be an Elvis impersonator! And me from Nashville! But I congratulated him!I guess he'll always be the king 40 years AD. Very imaginative.....(wink) LOL!
Checkers anyone? My Dad and I will be 52 next month. I'm just practicin for the retirement that will take place three years from now. News update on my tail saga! As ya'll know, I've been havin tail issues bein of age and all! My Dad patched me up once again and I'm off and runnin to the next photo shoot!
$149.00 and a job and you too can own your very own SM ride! I simply love the KIA commercail! Just had ta joke about it!
That's better than them expectin me to be a Puppet! Simply not done in Bubba's Sock Drawer and frankly.....I was insulted! My red heel is not smilin because some bum stuck his hand up my bum! It was a knittin machine thang! Mama...Why?! All in the genes and DNA I suppose.
Smile Banana boy Smile! Maybe, just maybe, you'll end up on a produce scale! Paula's comin ta getcha! Best Dishes and all!
It just makes ya'll wantta throw your SM in the air! Shake it Baby! Have a great day Possum's! Bubba and the rest of us
