One More Year and Upping the Sock Game


This may be goofiest post I have ever done but usually around this time of year I add another ring around my tree. I also reveal how totally goofy (or nuts depending on your point of view) I am. Over last few years, you have learned about my shot glass collection, My bobblehead collection, my causal T-shirt collection, how I love the comic strip Doonesbury and have collected a ton of its books over the years. I have added to all those strange collections over since I have done those blogs. Last year you got a glimpse of my bookcases.

This last year I got a new deal going and it is socks. By no means I am a fashion plate, heck I don't even know how to spell the word but this past year (no doubt aided by my fashion plate 20-year-old son), I have gotten into socks. Before I would try to buy socks as cheaply as I could - you know six pairs for five bucks but in the last year I started buying more and more fashionable socks:


The first: My son bought this simple pair of socks to up my game
 
Got to have The Dead
Franklin is coolest Peanuts character



Go Bears
Freebies from the Oakland A's

When the Triple-A Fresno Grizzlies play at home on Tuesdays, they change their name to the Fresno Tacos for Taco Tuesday
Sloth socks are so cool
The newest to the collection-A friend was over there and brought them back for me

I probably have some more in the laundry basket but won't share those. Can't believe that this my last year pre-AARP. I am starting to look forward to those discounts and the magazine.

  5. Socks are the bane of my life. Have tried so many strategies to avoid odd socks over the years and it never works. Love your sloth ones though! #BlogCrush

  7. This is an impressive sock collection. I think socks are fab because you CAN have fun with them and, if you wear trousers, you can have some fun socks underneath without anybody needing to know! Hehe. #blogcrush

  11. I've tried to talk my husband into a little more fashionable attire and he gave it a shot, but we finally admitted he just can't do it, even if he's spent hard earned money on "cute" stuff. LOL Good for you! I like your choices.

  15. Great collection. When I worked as a nurse, socks were the only item we could wear that wasn't a standard uniform. So, I always wore bright, fun socks. Kids and adults both seemed to really like them.
