Monkey, Monkey, Moo

My first job when I moved to the States was at a pet food wholesaler. One of the men I worked, ironically named Andy, was a most unusual individual. Each day he would stand in front of my desk and recite the following poem to me.

Monkey, monkey, moo

Who's a monkey, who?

I'm a monkey,

You're a monkey,

She's a monkey too!

Which might not have been so bad except that Andy did in fact resemble a monkey. So of course each time he sang this little ditty to me I wanted to yell, "Yes, yes you are!" However, being a polite Canadian and all ...

Fast forward 10 years and lookee what I got in the mail today from trek!

A Sock Monkey Sock Bag!!! Go on admit it, this is the cutest thing you've ever seen. I absolutely love it, it's even better than I expected. And all I had to do to get it was arrange a little swapper-roo with the trekster and it became MY BAG. These bags are the greatest. I take my cow bag everywhere with me. It's been to San Francisco, it's been to Santa Cruz, it's been to Los Gatos, it's a very well travelled bag. So what's going in the brand new Sock Monkey Sock Bag?

Sundara "Jaywalkers", thank you very much.

    The sock monkey bag is DARLING, as are all trekbags. I am holding out hope for a sock monkey DPN case... with the grey sock interior. That would be cooool.

    Meanwhile, your Jaywalkers are looking *GORGEOUS*. Hmm, maybe it's time for me to start my own Sundara Jaywalkers... I am very impressed by the look of these!

    Jays are looking good! I haven't tried that pattern yet, but I do have some Lorna's Laces set aside for a pair.

    Love the monkey bag!
