The SocMo Curiosity

March 15, 2005

SOCMO

I leave town for a week, come back, and find Socmo has made another appearance on Doug’s web page. I feel I need to try and clarify this fascination Doug has with sock monkeys.

This is something he has been dealing with for many years now. Here is a family photograph from a Christmas way back when and… yes that is Doug with his very first sock monkey. It has been a downward spiral since that point. Doug and SocMo are inseparable. It is similar to Linus and his blanket. Sad… so very sad.

Older children always have issues, as do the younger children. The burden always falls to we, the well adjusted middle children to keep things on the straight and narrow… right Margie?

The Comments

Don Jones

As I analyze this picture, it appears Margie is not hugging a Sock Monkey but some sort of little puppy? Doug still has that shirt hanging in his closet.

Dennis Jones

Yes, upon further analysis we can see the two older children receiving the coveted sock monkeys while Margie and I are getting who knows what… in fact… where am I in this picture?… I guess I must have been taking it…

you guys talk so much about socmo that he should have his own page on the brother jones site- he is so popular

mandy

the page would be called the adventures of socmo

Doug Jones

Perry and Mrs. Joyce

Brother Dennis: I just got this WebSite from Mother Jones, and you better tell her I contacted you, or we may both be in for it. You guys are just too clever for this Arkansan (by birth and retirement). Hug your Momma for me, when you see her. Cousin Perry

mandy

Margie

I never received a sock monkey for Christmas or any other event in my life. Should I have a problem with that??

Dennis Jones

WOW… THREE POSTS from my fellow middle child sister Margie… all saying the same thing… she must really mean business… that or she has one really weird computer that does everything in triplicate…

Doug Jones

I’ve been meaning to talk to Margie about her stuttering problem….

Roy

I know the person who took that picture and who made the monkey. Guess who????

Dennis Jones

Now Uncle Roy, don’t go trying to claim credit for this picture… I am pretty sure I was the one that took it… I distinctly remember having the camera up to my eye with one hand and my baby bottle in the other…

Roy

Dennis: As I recall you were never on the bottle.

Dennis Jones

hmmm… I think you might be right… it must have been a cup of coffee in my other hand…

Dennis Jones

…as I think about this a bit more I remember it very clearly… I was standing there with nothing on but a diaper, had the camera up to my eye with one hand and was holding a cup of coffee in the other. I was also smoking a carrot stick as I snapped the picture… thats why Margie has that shocked look on her face… it was quite a site…

Dennis Jones

…and as you can see, Doug was laughing AT ME because his baby brother is such a moron and Mary is obviously deep in thought trying to figure out some way to sit me down at the kitchen table and give me a crash course on manners and when and how to use them… DO I USE MY MANNERS NOW, MARY?

Don Jones

I was in the backyard stepping on rabbits.

Dennis Jones

I’m still mad at you about that…

Carrie

Does Don like stepping on rabbits? What are you talking about??

mandy

is that the same sock monkey you have now doug or did you get a new one

Don Jones

Carrie, I would rather not go into it… let’s just leave well enough alone. Let’s just say rabbits are jumpy and that makes little kids jumpy.
I’m not a rabbit killer like my brothers and sisters kept chanting…. over and over….

Dennis Jones

WABBIT KILLER!
