But that would have put Fred in Detroit....along with Dino's socks! :lol:

I could drive downtown and retrieve both Fred.....er, and the socks...yech! Think I would opt for Fred and take him home! Not really into clean but used socks ;-)..sorry Dino.
I think we might be missing the obvious here....socks...monkey... sock monkey
Di you must overcome the yech! and retrieve the socks from Detroit and make Fred a sock monkey friend.

I'm also hearing a new verse to I'm Your Man: "I'll make a monkey out of your socks for you.."

(ok, now I've gone too far.) :lol:

Love it! I think little Fred needs to make an appearance before we all become a bit stranger than we normally are! Hmmm, I know the hotel. Wonder if they would still have the socks..... 8)

It seems that a lot of people are concerned about Fred so I just wanted to say I did see him briefly in New York and he is looking well. Other than that I can't comment further.

I'm sorry Fred and his associates have sworn me to secrecy I've said too much already.

I know MEB said he/she spotted you in NYC, but this is really scary. It's been two weeks since we've seen you. Have you abandoned us Fred :cry: :cry: :cry: ?

Have you abandoned us Fred :cry: :cry: :cry: ?
Or, lacking that, will we see you in Red Rocks??
I know... Fred is growing up. Separation-from-mother realization of self, compounded by Empty Nest [Cage/Tree/Lap] Syndrome. Awww, Fred, c'mon. It's still cool to say Hi to Mom and your extended family. Really. The older you get, the more you'll realize these things. For now, all you can do is trust 8) . We love you.


Love,
Auntie Lizzy

Don't worry too much Diana and Lizzy. I'm sure Fred is busy planning his appearance in Red Rocks, presumably bringing all of his companions with him to meet all of us. I'm sure they're just as anxious to meet us as we are them. Should our fan forum start hosting our own meet and greets? :lol: ;-)
You let me sing, you lifted me up, you gave my soul a beam to travel on. You folded your distance back into my heart.

Hi Darling 8) ~

If Fred is prone to relaxing on the grass, we know who will find him.

As long as Fred stays on the grass, Darling will find him :D . Darling don't forget to bring him something to drink ;-) .

Best regards,

We must remember that Fred must stay on the grass, as well as off the grass, or we will never find him.
