Hello Possum's of The Sock Drawer warehouse! Well it's Thursday again! The temps are up in the 90's and pretty hot this time of year. I'm out by the fountain tryin ta chill out a bit. As I walk around the hood, I see the aftermath of the 4th celebration. The old neighborhood is covered in fireworks bits and pieces of paper of explosion. Even days later the folks are still usin up the left over fireworks that didn't get used. The fire crackers are still poppin. It's over guys! Give it a rest! It's true we're free and it is something to celebrate,but now it's time to move on with our lives. For those of you that missed the flag pose....well this is for you.........
The Besty Ross will be flyin high and proud!
I'll just take another sniff of my flower and breath in it's aroma. Take a minute to ponder whats really important in life. What's that ya'll ask? Why...Sock Monkeys!!! Not the silly mass produced ones! They are a different breed all their own. Some things are better left to the folk artist! Same thing happened to Raggedy ANN and Andy. But that's a story for another time. It really bothers me when companies do these things. It seems to take all the charm out of it. Faces all the same and cheaply done. I guess folks are to busy these days to sit down with a needle and thread and imagine! True.. there are no buttons to push and no fancy beeps goin on...and we only move around for those brave enough to imagine!
The imagination is not for the faint hearted! Sock Monkeys? They don't have to be plugged in and charged! We are charged by what's in your brain and heart alone. Dare to dream Possum's! We still have hours of fun left in us for those who believe in us! Long live the Sock Monkey! No one knows the womans name who invented us back in the 30's, but we take our hats off to her for her wonderful folk artist imagination! Without her we would still be a pile of dirty socks on the floor of someones bedroom. Thoughts to ponder as we go into Thursday! Bubba
