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?
