Sock Monkey!

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  My dear kit-cat pals over at the 'Fraidy Cats blog inquired about Sock Monkey the other day.  Well, friends, I'm happy to report I've had my first sighting!

There I was, helping Mom unpack Christmas decorations, when ...

"Well, well, well!  What do we have here?!?"
"Hello.... SOCK MONKEY!"
"Uh ... I thought we were friends, Maggie."

Sock Monkey had a point.  I was VERY good last year.  In previous years, I had found him rather  tasty    hard to resist   appealing.

Mom put him where I can keep an eye on him -- you know, so there's no monkey business or anything.  Rather than putting him on one of our trees, he's hanging out on some garland upstairs.  Right here:

Sock Monkey, monkeying around.

Fine.  I can still get to him from the catwalk.  He's hanging out with those reindeers, though; like they're guarding him or something.

"Sock Monkey!  I've got my eyes on Predator #1!"
"Yeah, whatever.  No one likes a snitch, Rhonda Reindeer."

I can be patient.  And mighty sneaky.  Fear not!  I WILL get Sock Monkey this year!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. I'm sure you'll get him this year! And love and cuddle him, which is all you want to do, right?

  2. We bet you could sneak up and take sock monkey when those reindeer are sleeping. Your house looks so festive with all your decorations.

  3. Maggie I think I'd rather have a sock monkey hanging from my garland than an Elf on a Shelf....
    Hugs and I love your stair decorations
