I know – one day I *might* get done talking about mom/dad’s vacation. Until then, I still have more to share 🙂 I hope I don’t bore you too much but they did find some neat things.
Mom is a HUGE sock monkey fan. Don’t ask me why but she just loves the little guys. She has them in all shapes and sizes in the back of her Smart car Albert. Well, can you believe they found a new one while on vacation? This is Frankensock. Rolls piggy eyes. Yep Frankensock. Did I mention that she names them all too? – snorts. And if you look in the picture in the bottom left hand corner, you will see one of her other sock monkeys peeking out at you. That is Mr Sock-a-lots. Crazy huh? Only my mother would collect sock monkeys. Please tell me there are others out there – please. And if you think that the sock monkeys are just limited to little toys you can hold, you would be so wrong. Just wait until when it gets colder and I show you a picture of what she actually wears to bed at night. O.M.P. (oh my pig). Now that is a sight to behold – snorts.
Who would have ever thought while on vacation that mom/dad would come across another Smart car with an anipal in it?! While walking around the pier, they met Susan and Joey in their little car – how adorably cute! Of course, mom/dad struck up a conversation with them and had to point out their car in the parking lot as well.
You so have to check Susan and Joey out at http://www.seasidesisterstybee.com/about-us/ and let them know that Bacon sent you. They have a wonderful shop called Seaside Sisters where their web site calls it – clears throat “The best litttle shore house on Tybee”. Snorts – Isn’t that awesome!
And you see on the side of the door the sign – it’s for their other business Seaside Sweets. They have the best gelato shop at 18B Tybrisa/16th Street, Tybee Island. Mom/dad went their a couple of times during their trip. They couldn’t try everything in one stop so they just had to break things down – snorts. It was delicious… they said. This little piggy didn’t get any. Do you see a pattern here? *I* didn’t get anything brought back for my pot belly. hhhmm – I’m going to have to fix that little problem in the future!
They were fabulous and Joey was so well behaved! Bashful was super impressed as well as mom/dad. And of course, dad *had* to ask Ms. Susan the ever-ending question. He told her, “I gotta know. When you are driving around, do other people in Smart cars ever wave and act crazy when they see you?” The answer was, “Oh gosh YES!” See daddy is right. It’s like a club in those Smart cars. And you see, Joey rides in the front seat and mommy makes me ride in the back. I wonder if she’ll let me in the front now? Inquiring piggy minds you know!

There is no doubt room but mommy says I have to stay buckled in the back. She’s a spoil sport – snorts. That dog Joey was simply wonderful – and so friendly! He sat in that front seat like he *owned* the car. Mommy said it was great. XOXO – Bacon

Sock monkeys used to freak me out and just in the last couple of years I find them endearing. But I am a lover of stuffies so that seems very right. I have the Suds Bunny that I am very fond of and he sometimes is featured on the blog. Well when I stop PROcrastinating and post a blog.. 🙂 I think your Mom should let you ride in the front seat Bacon!
11/14/2013 at 8:55 am
ALL hail me in the front seat! Snorts. Nope, mommy is so not going for it – PLOL. I have a little safety harness that I wear in the back of the Smart car for my protection. Kind of like a seatbelt. I don’t know if you could see in the picture but Joey was not wearing one. He was just island hopping but still mommy is a safety girl – cute huh? XOXO – Bacon

The kiddos haven’t really gotten into sock monkeys (yet?!) so we don’t have any hanging around here surprisingly. We think it’s time to get one, especially if your mom vouches for them 🙂
11/14/2013 at 9:02 am
My vouches for them highly! They each have their own little personalities. She gets one, holds them for a while and then names them accordingly. They keep her a lot of company in the Smart car when I can’t ride around with her. XOXO – Bacon

“Mr Sock-a-lots.” Oh my. How AWESOME!!!!!!!!
11/14/2013 at 12:01 pm
Snorts. She has a baby one too. She calls it Baby Sock-a-lots. Very original huh? Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

My mom loves sonkmonkeys! They are supercool, sadly in ole europe not common. Probably mom’s who got tortured with garbage trash dolls need some things for their hurted souls :o) The dog in Albert’s brother looks like Emma, the Grand Basset Griffon Vendéen (that’s a breed-name, huh?)
11/14/2013 at 1:22 pm
Snorts – Joey was quite the little character rocking in that little car. Mom had a great time with him. You are so right about the moms who got tortured with garbage trolls… 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

I have a few plain sock monkeys. That one sure is cute.
11/14/2013 at 3:05 pm
Mom just loves them ALL. I can’t wait until it gets really cold outside so I can snap a picture of what else she bought. You have to wait for it though because you have to see it to believe it – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

Frankensock is soooo cool!
11/17/2013 at 2:13 pm
I think so too. Mommy let me snuggle with him for a while when I was in the back of her car. He’s snuggable. XOXO – Bacon
