It's no secret that I like monkeys and that sock monkeys are special favorites. I've mentioned the cute sock monkeys that I saw during my walks about town and said that one of them might be coming home with me. I was walking by Pottery Barn last week and they called out to me. Not one, but two sock monkeys -- the Sock Twins -- came home with me. They were warmly greeted by the Monkee-in-Chief, Pepe, and his buddy, Socko.
Hey Hey It's the Monkees!

The Sock Twins are quickly adjusting to life with Pepe, Socko and pals, but there is one little problem. They have no first or middle names. Right now they are simply the Sock Twins. In Facebook and Buttercupland giveaways -- yes, two giveaways -- you have the opportunity to name the Sock Twins. Each winner will receive a book that will be chosen specifically for the persons who are selected. You don't have to be a friend of Buttercupland, and you don't have to do anything more complicated than leave the two names that you think would be best for these two sweet, but cheeky little monkeys. The names will be announced next Sunday, November 30.
Though snow may be on its way for Thanksgiving, we had a glorious almost spring day today. I had a fun lunch with my friend Jacquie and enjoyed walking on Broadway in a light jacket. I savored every second. Tomorrow is supposed to be even sunnier and I have promised myself an iced coffee as a treat.
As ever thanks for visiting. Have a great week and take good care!
