May 1 Giveaway Results Are In!

Tony, Zippy, Skeeter, Schylling and W2 wait impatiently.
You could smell the excitement in the air. Of course, with 5 sock monkey boys that’s no big surprise. They could hardly contain themselves, waiting for the stroke of 3 o’clock p.m.

Every 2 minutes I’d hear, “Is it time yet?”

“Mom, is it time?”

“Are we ready to draw?”

And of course there was the usual competition for “shotgun” position. Every one of them wanted to be the one to draw
Zippy & Tony drew twice. The other monkey boys
threatened to fling p** - er, things they should NOT fling!
the names. As it turned out, I made them take turns - as every good mom to sock monkey boys knows. Zippy, being the youngest, got to draw twice as did Tony and Kevin.

Some of our sock monkey boys bear their NASCAR heroes’ names with pride. Tony is short for Tony Stewart. Zippy, named after Greg Zipadelli, hardly ever leaves Tony’s side. Kevin wants to drive the Rheem-Budweiser-Jimmy John's car when he grows up and loves that he’s named after Kevin Harvick.

Not terribly clever on our part, but their names are fairly unique among the HASSL group. HASSL stands for Houston Area Simian Soccer League. They were lucky enough to play our niece Sarah’s team when she was in league soccer. Their Saturday games prevent us from doing all sorts of things! You just can’t even “imagine.”

Names were drawn from my lucky hat. I wore it to most
chemo treatments and runs to HEB.
Then we have Buddy, named for Buddy the Christmas Elf. He came to live at our house on Christmas a few years back. He adores his green soccer socks and refuses to let me wash them. He also refuses to take off his cap – even though he gets mercilessly teased about it.

Schylling is our rasta monkey. He showed up in the bottom of one of my Target bags. He’s terribly cool, and I have to watch him closely because he does love to get into the spice cabinet and try to roll cigarettes from the Fluffy Chix oregano stores.

W2 (WeeWee) is their dog. Their Aunt Nanny got that dog for them and he’s worn me out! He goes nowhere without his little baby Skeeter. Since Zippy arrived this spring, he and W2 have fought incessantly because Zippy says he “needs” Skeeter and W2 does not agree – as you can imagine.

The boys "managed" the drawing.
So the boys insisted on managing the drawing. It took twice as long and felt eleventy billion percent more complicated. But that’s what happens when you have a joint run by monkeys. It’s monkey bizness All. The. Time!

Here are the results! We are so excited! 8 Lucky Winners reap the rewards of Following the Fluffy Chix hijinx. Congratulations to all the winners and condolences to those whose names were not chosen.

(Note - I will notify each of you by email if that's ok? And hopefully we will get all the gifts shipped by next Monday at the latest!)
