Sock Hunter Episode 2: Trajedy Befalls the Mate**

Imagine my excitement when I spotted this beauty in the tree. The mate to the sock that I spotted mere days ago. My excitement was threefold as I spotted the nest behind her. Surely this is a good sign of more "Go-eth With the Flow-ers*" socks to come. Or perhaps an even more exciting find, a new specie of socks. My heart was pitter-pattering and I feared that the sock had become wise to my stalking when it suddenly flitted to the ground where I captured this rare moment.

Socks in a rare embrace

I was shocked moments later to discover that the mate had met a terrible fate** at the fangs of a black sock stalking cat. I paused mournfully over the remnants of such a beautiful and long-legged specimen. Such is the cycle of life with these socks.

Join the Sock Hunter next time for more exciting stalking of the wild and illusive socks of West Lafayette. ;)

Sounds like one of those "Don't try this at home" stunts. :) Beautiful socks.

PHEW! I was about to contact P.E.T.S. (People for the Ethical Treatment of SOCKS). Crisis diverted.

See you Sunday??!!
