can a monkey and a typewriter write HAMLET????

Or even just a sonnet?
So, basically, the winter boots get cleaned and go into the closet, and the rain boots come out of the closet for the first time in a few months. I am scared to death of who may have died in there over the winter---is there gonna be a dead mouse in my boot, and its like SQUISH???? BElieve that I shake those boots out first...

You can see my rude sock monkey Georges Le Soq helping me make art yesterday...he is like
"shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate..."

and I am like NICE Georges, a sonnet! And he grins modestly, although I suspect he has copied somebody more famous ;)

BTW, our computers are having some kind of problem. There was thunder and lightening yesterday and we can barely operate here--sorry I have not visited your blogs etc......will catch up sometime soon!

You will be needing mugs like this from my etsy shop: Godzilla and Bigfoot eating people!

We moved the winter boots from the mud room to the closet today. We don't have rain boots though.

I am always a bit scared to put on my shoes if they have been sitting...or outside. SPIDERS. OY!!
Awesome drawings Gary!

Always love your pottery Gary! and of course a Sock Monkey can type Hamlet, afterall, wasn't Hamlet written on just such characters as our Sock Monkeys? MMM We think so. "To be or not to be"? mmmmmm

ALWAYS shake out your boots before putting a foot in them! I learned this the hard way ;(

What happened, Kerry? Why have I never thought about creatures being in my shoes?

I hope to only ever find fist fulls of dollars in my shoes.
