My Father-in-law had a stroke on May 17. He has been in a rehab facility and we have created a new addition to our monkey family for him. This is a cheerful little guy. He even has blue eyes like my FIL. He has the casual flair--jams....since my FIL needs to know how to rest. But at the same time he has a little injection thing---just to encourage the patient to keep up with his PT. Kind of an "or else" thing.
We shall send this guy off to the rehab on Saturday!!
Well --the sock monkey gear is shown below , but I had to show you Zephir and Minkey here at the bottom of Mt Rainer (spelling?)--I forgot this picture in the post below.!! How dare I forget?? Here are some pjs I found from Target's online catalogue--I am showing a close up of the material. Notice how rumpled they are!! That is because I had them stuffed under my pillow--they are very comfy and provide sweet monkey dreams ;-)
Also a tee shirt from my daughter for my birthday in April--notice two favorites combined--coffee and tea ;-)
Well here we are--ready to celebrate our creater's birthday week. She was going to visit her son in Redmond (outside of Seattle)....so of course we had to tag along!! It was our first plane ride!!WOW! Here we are rejoined to our redmond buddy. He is using his Spring attire because he is used to the cold weather. But since we are from SC we are wearing our scarfs!!
This is the son I was talking about--he was creating a tasty dish.
Here is proof of the cool weather--Redmond greeted us with snow, sleet and rain--pretty awesome.
This was the cool view from the house we stayed in on our visit.
There were nice walks on Lake Washington (I think that was the name of the lake--very beautiful)
We even spotted a deer on our walk.
We took a ferry ride to Bainbridge Island for a nice lunch and view of a vineyard.
Here are our travel companions (alias creators)
We also did some climbing
This was taken on our way to Mt. Rainer (spelling?)
It was a great trip with many interesting things to do and see. Plus it was our first time to see snow, even though we came into the world in hmmmm, Nov. or Dec----?? 07!
