Miscellaneous Tybee Trip Finds

I know – one day I *might* get done talking about mom/dad’s vacation. ¬†Until then, I still have more to share ūüôā 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 Рhow 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!

My Friends

20130806-111459.jpg

Let me introduce you to some of my traveling buddies. This is Sir Sockalots and Mini-Me Sir Sockalots. They travel with mom in the back of her Smart car all of the time. This back space is also where I ride when I travel with mom around time. Just me and my sock monkey buddies hanging out waving at the peeps in traffic.

I mean, can you imagine (A) a small car rolls up beside you in traffic and (B) up pops a little pig with his buds oinking away at you. It has caught the attention of a few people – snorts. I almost feel like I’m on a parade float waving at the humans. Of course, mommy never gets a picture because she’s driving and her phone and camera are put down for safety. That’s a good mommy – snorts.

So, the next time you see a little blue Smart car pull up beside you, look towards the back and see if you see a little oinker snorting away and having a grand old time!
