TOPIC:  Sock Monkeys

I've never met anyone who doesn't like sock monkeys.  My friend Winnie has a blue one that travels with her pretty much wherever she goes.  Like she says, "there's nothing better than sucking on your thumb while holding onto a blue sock monkey."  Mom found me a cat sock monkey the other day at Walmart and I gotta tell ya, it's the best!  I mean all dawgs like chew toys, but when they're shaped like a cat it's very exciting.  Today I'm thinking about burying it in mom's garden.  It's Saturday and Dad says you're required to go out and do something fun!  Ready... GO.
