So, I figured it out. Actually, the sock sender confessed. A distant friend mentioned on facebook that she was going shopping. I teasingly said that I hoped she got me something good. She teasingly said "How about some thermal socks?" I laughed, and it was over.
It wasn't until after she confessed tonight on facebook that I actually recalled the conversation. I had to dig DEEP to find it. I hit "older posts" about 10 times before I got back that far. Funny stuff. Here it is:
Joanna Miller With the Fed Govt closed tomorrow I get to sleep in. Maybe I can get to Target around noon and get some odds and ends. :o)
Joanna, you crack me up. I never, in a million years, thought you were really going to buy me socks. What a silly notion. Yeah, I'm wearing a pair now. And they're WARM!
