Bye Bye Brother

P1050330Greeting Loyal readers and fellow maremmas.  Now as you all know, brother is going to u-ni-ver-si-ty.  Me and Nellie do not know of this place.  Brother has been home for the last few months, working at Farmer Rae’s kiwifruit orchard over the summer holidays.  However, today he went back to Wellington with a car and trailer loaded up with furniture and stuff for his new flat.

P1050333Mummy is very happy.  It means she can have her living room back and it will no longer look like the aftermath of a frat house party. Daddy is happy.  It means that our internet usage will not be sucked up faster than Me and Nellie can hover up our evening dinner. Me and Nellie are sad, for who will give Us the tasty treats and love that We so richly deserve.

Mummy was tidying up sister’s room and as a result added more socks to her collection of one socks. She thinks she has an example of just about every sock ever made by Canterbury, however none of them have a partner.  She gets them out occasionally to see if she can match them up, but most of the time she is disappointed.

See all the single socks mummy has collected over the years.

What do you think, loyal readers.  Does your mummy have such a large solo sock collection?

Love Nellie and Jasper, the two bestest, wettest maremmas in all the land.

    Our collection of one-socks isn’t as big as yours…YET…but it’s getting there!

    I have never heard of anyone collecting lone socks. What a fun idea. Mom is a thrower-outer, so this would not work for her. I LOVE your selfie, J. Very distinguished!

    Love and licks,

    Brother is happy-more beer. Why don’t you donate that sock collection to the one-leg society.?

    If only Mama let Me and Nalle play with her sockies, she might be able to start a one sock collection. WOL! 🙂

  5. That is the BIGGEST sock collection I have EVER seen! WOW! Good luck to your brother with school! It brought back great memories for my Mom of when she was in college. Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  8. Hi Jasper! I think some of those socks must have mates over here in my scribes lonely socks drawer. She has found a great use for them, though. Every time I injure my foot (which, as my readers know, I do with some regularity), she puts one over my bandage when I go for my walks. If you really have too many in your house, why not see if your vet could use some for out-patients?

  9. Wishing your brother a great time at uni.

    We have a solo sock collection too, mummy thinks the washing machine sucks them up lol

  11. That’s a terrific sock collection. I cannot figure out how the one here has so many white socks and they all seem to have different ribbed tops or toe stripes. In winter, it’s ok because no one see the sock tops under jeans, but warm weather? No wonder everyone opts to go sock-less then
    (How did we live without vans?)
