Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow

Get ready for a barrage of pictures to come. These sock monkeys have been busy and just have not had enough time to stop by here to say hello. Sometimes you get so far behind and just don't know where to start.

Today the best place to start is at the end. On September 29, 2009, Sarah and Sir Shamokin left Pennsylvania to go home to Vancouver, BC. We met as strangers, parted as friends. The Sock Monkeys bound us together during the visit and ever since then.

Here is our time at the Harrisburg Airport...

Nelson and MeToo behaving themselves
(for once!) while we waited for VEG to check in.
Just two weeks before Sarah and Cyndy had met
for the first time at this exact place...

Koko is ready to go!
Sorry, Koko, you have to stay here
to share the Pennsylvania story...

Koko was consoled by the prospect of
a happy meal, complete with
french fries and a toy!

The Sock Monkey Crew:
Cyndy on left holding Nelson and Metoo;
Sarah on the right holding Koko and Shamokin...

Nelson thinking,
"That's Shamokin's plane. If I could just
slip down these slides at the right speed I bet I could
get on that plane. It has my colors, after all..."

Three peas in a pod.
Sitting still and behaving
while waiting for the plane to take off...

Koko could not sit still very long, though.
These structural beams looked like
one big set of monkey bars to him!

Goodbye Sarah and Shamokin!

Nelson! Do not touch that button!

Okay, Nelson. Yes, you can push this button.

This sign just cracked Nelson up.
You can tell that he has a very warped sense of humor.

Koko likes this sign!
Koko and Chocolate go hand in hand...

Koko loved the moving floor and
the shiny windows and beams!

Nelson liked them, too, but he was looking
for the button on how to make the floor stop moving.

It was definitely time to go...
