I haven't had a chance to post today's sock picture until now, which is amusing since it's 1 AM. In other words, "today's" socks are actually yesterday's, but since I'm not asleep yet, it's still today and not yet tomorrow as far as I'm concerned. Why the delay? Because my not-quite year-old lab puppy has … Continue reading Man’s Best Friend
I was planning to write a post today about how these socks made me contemplate a world where The Joker picked up a former geometry teacher sidekick, and how appropriate that whole concept was for a Monday. But then Smoky tried to bring me a toy to play with and was too tired to even … Continue reading Monday Is Exhausting For Everyone
I can always count on Smoky to make a day's sock post kinda not really about the socks. But how could anyone look in those big puppy eyes and complain?
Smoky and I got to sit on the patio this evening for the first time in 2018. I'm crossing my toes that today represents just the beginning of many sock installments from the backyard. That is; no matter what Mother Nature brings this weekend or over the weeks to come, let's hope these splat socks … Continue reading Well, Hello Spring
I wore a pair of socks today. There's a picture of them below. Right now I'm not having much luck remembering why I picked them out of the drawer this morning. Truth is, yesterday's post was a bit disingenuous on my part. I knew there was a good chance Maddie would be leaving us today and … Continue reading Heavy Hearts And (Nearly) Forgotten Footwear
We've had plenty of pictures of Smoky with my socks, but somehow none with Maddie, our aging lady. She doesn't get around so well anymore, and a recent stroke left her with a permanent head-cock that makes it look she's questioning everything, but her skill at napping has always...and continues to...make me green with envy. … Continue reading Sleepy Sunday and Socks
It seems like Fridays and Sundays are the likeliest of days to break out the most novel of my novelty socks. Today's hamburger-hotdog-sideoffries socks pretty much crush "peak novelty". Now that I've had a day to think about it, though, I should have saved these for one of the grill-centric holidays of the approaching warmer … Continue reading I Can’t Even Look At You Right Now
This adorable black lab puppy and me in my denim blues make a good pair to match today's selection. Did I plan it ? No, but you can be sure I was gonna hold the treat over my head as long as it took to get this picture once he sauntered up to demand attention. … Continue reading We Planned It This Way
I'm not sure who's having the best Sunday afternoon here -- me in my brunchy egg fried socks, or Smoky, crushing hard on a mid-Sunday afternoon nap atop a pile of his favorite stuffed friends. Either way, everyone photo'd here is thoroughly enjoying a little leisure afternoon time, the benefits or which can simply not … Continue reading Eggs Benediction
As promised, here are your first hearts for the week. But even as adorable as this pair of socks is, it pales in comparison to that puppy face practically begging for playtime. Don't worry; he got it. I am, after all, not an actual monster. Mostly.
