What a great day to be alive Possum's! And a good day to ya'll. The air outside is hot and muggy. Mike decided I needed a new outfit. He bought this fabric last July for the 4th celebration. It has explodin fireworks all over it makin it very colorful. The way I see it? I am wearin the party! I trust ya'll had a good memorial day! Rest and relaxation on this end. The freedom that many Americans frought and died for is wonderful! May God rest their souls for givin their lives for this great country of ours. True the economy is barely squeekin by these days, we'll all survive it somehow. Hey! Just tighten our belts and make your sock monkey a new outfit. What come be more fun than that? Have a fabulous day! Bubba

Well....Here's the memorial Day Version in Nashville! Just get out your guitar and hum a little tune. America the beautiful! Thanks to all the men and women who died to make this all possible! If it were not for them we would not be sittin behind our computers doin my Sock Drawer blog today. We ar truely thankful for them all.
Get the watermelon out and take a big ole bite out of it! Now spit the seeds across the backyard! Yes Possum's! We are truely free to take part in this artistic expression! Take the rhine left over and slap somebody up side the head! Please don't try this at home...it is only meant for a laugh or two.
Hot dog! Memorial Day fun for everyone! Maybe tonight to continue the fun...we'll step out onto the front porch to see the fire works! Happy Day Possum's! Bubba

Hello my Possum's!!! This is what it looked like at 4:00 A.M. Tuesday mornin when the storm started! Some say we had a tornado come through! Huge trees went flyin and telephone poles came crashin down! It was the biggest mess! I am here to report on all the damage!
As you can see in this picture, the trees layin all around the park nearby. Yes...they get worse as we go through this blog and report. I am sorry to say I was down for several days. No cable Tele or internet for my bloggin. The power was out for two days in the entire neighborhood. All stores and traffic lights out as well.
The power lines hangin from every pole still standin! I was very careful not to step on them. I would have been fried to a crisp! I'm already golden brown! Don't need to be crispy along with it! I like the original recipe better! So my red heel smile still intacted!
It was a sight to see. The blessin in all this you ask? All the neighbors on my street came together out on our front lawns and grilled our food for all to eat! People helpin people! Was a fun time!
Lit only by our lanterns and candles that evenin. The social went way into the we hours of the night. It is a wonder we all made it through this again. We have been havin many bad storms this year. Today is the first time I have been able to come online and share this event.
Power lines across this chair out in the back alley.
Trees down everywhere I look! Chainsaws goin 24-7! The buzz continues on and on!
Trees down blockin the streets! Mixed with power lines.
I sit on the back of the Public work trucks. The light was actually flashin but did not show up in photo.
Another blessin in all this is the down pours made one of my flowers open! Just a drop of beauty in all the mess. So...everything is tryin to get back to normal. I am thankful I can continue my blogs at will. Have a happy safe and blessed day! Bubba

It's Monday, so I just mosey myself on down to the Piggly Wiggly. Love that name! It's fun to say!!!! Little ole grocery store on the side of the road kind of thing. Partly cloudy with a drop of sunshine. It was rainin early this mornin. My tomato plants gettin a drink of water. A timely breeze flutters by for an enjoyable afternoon. The chiken from the Piggley Wiggly bakin in the nuke-krowave.
Woooo-whhoooo! Jackpot! The coca cola truck along just in time! Diet coke please! Maybe I should just shake them all up real good! Cokes would be spewin all over the state! But that wouldn't be neighborly now would it? Twas a funny thought.
I didn't so that's what made the difference. Happy Monday! Bubba

Howdy doo Peeps , Possum's and all around in general good down home Sock People! Been up to a little garden work this week and thought I'd share it with ya'll. This here is Gerber daisies and lavendar planted in a pot together. The yellow up against my red color background will almost put your eyes out to look at it. Bright colors are always cheerful and welcome to me. The lavendar has a wonderful smell if you rub your hand on it. Take a deep long breath.
Our little garden is growin and lookin real pretty this year. A nice place to relax in the backyard. Garden in a bucket is what I call it. The bucket garden! Got a bucket? make a garden. Head to the thrift stores for the little bird houses and what not to decorate it with.
I was a sittin here last night watchin Futurama and a thinkin about my little garden. The joys of Summer are always so pretty. Keep your fingers crossed that our tomato plants produce fruit this year!!!! Happy Friday to you all and close the Sock Drawer! Bubba

Good afternoon my Possum's!!! Todays messeage is brought to you from none other than Shelby Park! We finally got sunshine today after weeks of overcastness. This wonderful park is a few blocks from our home andwe decided to get out and take a walk around.
The geese are swimmin in the pond of the park! HI geese! Thanks for the pose of the picutre for me!
Can you say bridge over troubled waters? Not really, but what a fun way to look at things. Funny...I can never pass up a good opportunity for a bridge pose.
Hangin out by the water and enjoyin our sunny day!
Now this park has a fenced in area that white ducks live in and can easily enter in and out of the pond. Hey White ducks! Look! We have sunshine! They were all to happy about that!
They even have little duck houses for them inside the fence. Cute little duck houses!
Looks like I have my ducks in a row!
I found a patch of wildflowers and decided to lay down and relax for a spell. This park is the life! Life is good!
Sock Monkey on a rock!!!!! Oh yeah! By the water for a pleasent park stay for the day.
The stairway to heaven. Sing it with me now.
One could look at this hole in the hill as many things. Could it be a doorway back in time? Maybe a portal into the future. Or perhaps a way to just dream away the hours in the park. It's allowed you know.
We came upon a golf cousre on our walk through the park. I did pull one of the golfers over and ask if I could photograph with his golf cart. The strange looks are the funnest! He was all to happy to allow this.
I wondered up on this babblin brook in my Park adventure. Crossed to a rock in the center and sat down to wonder where this brook was rushin off to. Don't let my imagination take off or we'll get side tracked and never continue on with my adventure.
What's up with these holes in the hillsides? Could be SCI-FI channel stuff!
This park is just glorious and pretty picture of nature.
WOW! Nature walk wanted and excepted!
Pravillion for picnicin! I shall keep this in mind for another pretty day.
Shall we just enjoy the rest of the picture in quiet as we stroll through?
I a swingin Sock Monkey and swingin I is!
On the drive back home I spotted this fire engine along the way. I'm glad you guys came along with me for my park adventure. Time to close The Sock Drawer on another day. I bet ya'll was thinkin we here in the Sock Drawer had turned into the food network from all my Restaraunt blogs. Not true. Today was a change of plans and what a great way to spend my day! Thursday out! Bubba
