A Day in the Life of a Sock Monkey

My name is Jacques.  I am a vintage sock monkey.  I flew in from Paris a couple of weeks ago and there was so much turbulence I dislocated both of my shoulders.  
 My guardian angels were watching over me when they dropped me in Little Miss Maggie's care.  She surgically repaired my shoulders.
 Now I get to lay in bed for hours reading the latest sock monkey adventures.
 She put me up in the bridal suite and I do have to share it with the honeymooners.
 I get up around noon and play by the seashore (well sort of).
 I do have to put up with a lot of cats though.
 Darn, they are all over the place.
 In the afternoon I enjoy the symphony.
 I hope I never have to fly anywhere ever again.
Boy, what an exhausting day.  I think I'll have my milk and cookies now.   That cat better not try to steal them from me.  I have it pretty good here.  I think I'll stay for a while longer.  Au revoir.

Ah ha ha ha ha..... did Jacques arrive before Mrs. F. flew off for Paris? (Hope her shoulders were ok). Have you met Vickie from Ranger911? She has some mischievous sock monkey's too!
