Mary B of Richmond, who graces our comments and Found Objects on a regular basis, is a modest and dignified mother of two. She does not claim to have invented the dubious practice known as “showing the sock a good time”; that distinction lies elsewhere. But I will go out on a limb and say that Mary B may well have perfected the art. I will let the evidence speak for itself. The following photos are from Mary’s recent trip to Britain.
Sock with ghost in Yorkshire.
With Mary and Yeoman at Tower of London. (Yeoman is on the right.)
With William Wallace Guy (center) in Scotland.
Last but not least (my personal favorite, although it’s hard to choose):
Sock with one of the many Roman Centurions one still finds wandering the countryside.
The sock, apparently, had a very good time indeed. As did Mary.

P.S. Thanks, Mary B!
