We just saw the unfortunate news of Leonard Nimoy’s passing. Of all of the souls we have encountered in our travels, he was the most human.

Our favorite memories of Mister Rogers are of his visits with Koko the Gorilla. We love these photos of Koko removing Mister Rogers’ shoes and socks.
Wild West showman Buffalo Bill Cody was born today in 1846.
He was a scout for the US Army, Pony Express rider, and served with the 7th Kansas Calvary during the Civil War, all before the age of 18.
Buffalo Bill went on to jobs as a ranch hand, wagon train driver, buffalo hunter, fur trapper, gold prospector, and, of course, performer in the touring “Buffalo Bill’s Wild West” show.
The Buffalo Bill Center of the West museum in Cody, Wyoming has a couple of great pairs of socks for your little cowpokes.
From artist Christoph Niemann: “T-Rex in his favorite turtleneck sweater.”
It’s cold out there. But the amazing people at The Joy of Sox are helping the homeless this winter by providing new socks. Please check them out and consider donating.
Good luck to our friends on the East Coast who are digging out several feet of snow. Hope you have a pair of heated socks.
