Sock Monkey Welcoming Committee

When I got to Ohio this evening, the kids were in their pjs and had already eaten supper.  As I entered the door there was a wagon load of sock monkeys and a  handmade Welcome Froo Froo Ruthie sign.  It was funny and exciting to arrive and be greeted so enthusiastically.  They had run down to the car and helped haul the suitcase and school bag and I carried the one with the camera.  Even Murphy was at attention in the driveway as I pulled up.  He watched the monkey shot but did not get in it.  A quick photo op and no belaboring trying to get everyone’s attention.  The monkeys did well again, never moving or flinching!  You don’t want to spoil the moment by insisting on multiple poses for a stellar shot.  The grandkids all looked wonderful to me.  Jack doesn’t like to sit still anyway,

  1. This has to rank up among the best welcomes ever! I’m so glad that you had a camera to record it. A copy of this photo will have a spot in each of their homes. Guaranteed.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
