LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

9/26/2006  Great Britain ***@aol.com

Hey,

An urgent update from our sock laboratories in England!
We have discovered a "homing call" similar to that of whales can be heard if the sock is placed within a small container with only recording equipment for company and left for 6 weeks. The illustrious noises that emit from its mouth can not be described with words. It moved many of my hardened colleagues to tears and is even more emotive that Titanic mixed together with a funeral march.

    So my fellow socketias, there you have it, if you ever wondered why your sock, however far or near, has managed to get back to you this is why! However, unfortunately not all socks are raised in a environment that enables them to learn this technique. But spread the word and soon, just maybe, we dare to hope that one day all socks will return to their owners and peace shall reign over us all!
Yours

7/12/2006 -- Great Britain

I think that socks are self-realized beings waiting for the day they can access their muscles through their kind of deep brain stimulation (extreme foot odour) when this is achieved they walk to Hockford in Little Ingleton in Surrey, Britain and all sink down together. However the sad sad sadness of this is that of a pair only one can go while the other is left to dwindle unused and uncared for in the bottom of a drawer. Sad isn't it!

Jonathan Colby of Tuluca Lake, California, got more than foot warmer for Xmas when he listed a white, ribbed, sports sock purchased at the Broadway Department Store in our missing socks data base. A near perfect match was made with a single owned by Gloria Reynolds of West Hollywood. They decided to compare socks in person and it was love at first sight. Married on December 23rd in LA the couple say that they owe it all to the Bureau. (Note: Gloria found Jonathan's missing mate when she cleaned his apartment for the first time. He never looked in the bookcase.)

Rare Medical Condition. Sock Eating Syndrome 
Source: Medical Tribune News Service 
SEATTLE - A 22-year-old woman was diagnosed with a rare medical condition, in which she craved consumption of socks. She was earthbound half a sock each evening. She also told doctors that as a teen-ager she chewed on and swallowed clothing. She was hospitalized after suffering from nausea and vomiting. The doctors found a large bezoar in her stomach. She was diagnosed with a rare condition known as pica, in which a person craves nonfood items. Previous to this incident, doctors have reported cases of people eating dirt, hair, chalk, clay, glue and other nonfood items. This is the first case of sock eating "Often, when people have a craving it is because they are lacking something in their diet," said Atif Awad, an associate professor of nutrition at the University of Buffalo. "If you don't give salt to cows, they start licking the walls," he added..

SOCKS FOUND

Zac Konkol
I would like to report that while driving the other day, I happened across a 
box with several misplaced socks in them.  Their description is as follows
1) Olive dress sock, medium, solid colored, ankle high
2) White sport sock with Nike symbol, knee high, large
Hope this will be of some use to you with missing socks.

I have just retrieved a sock from the back of the car. Itıs been in there since our holiday to France in 1994. It first hid under the front seat but later took up residence somewhere near the spare wheel. But now it has returned. Only one problem remains - where is the other one?

The following is a true story. Just today, I had a junk car dealer haul off my old 1981 Escort station wagon. It had been parked in my garage for seven years. When they moved my car, I found a sock (navy with red herringbone checks) that I had lost. The sock was gone so long that I threw away its mate five years ago. Actually, that's not true; I think I made that sock into a dog toy for Pete, my Dalmatian. I'm not sure what the significance of this story is, other than I am apparently destined to always have a single navy sock with red herring-bone checks. I don't know why I'm telling you this, but it's nice to think that perhaps someone cares.

TULSA
One yellow sock was found today in the street by 31st and Memorial in Tulsa. After extensive care at Sock Rehab and Medical Center it is now ready to return to it's mate. Please help us find it's home!

Los Angeles -- The Mervin Blakes of North Hollywood, California found a sock missing since 1976. Their house recently burned to the ground destroying everything ... When they were digging through the ashes of their possessions, a charred floor board gave way, and, much to their joy, they discovered a totally undamaged single sock that had been missing for 19 years. 8/09/05 
=====
5/26/05 New York City -- Richard Cleeve, the President of the Board of a Cooperative Apartment Building in NYC, the Almondo, reports today that seven hundred odd socks had been recovered from the apartment of a demented tenant who has been stealing them from the laundry room for over three years. The tenant's only defense was he was getting even with the other tenants who were taking one of his socks every time he did the wash. In addition to the socks a vast quantity of arms and ammunition was found in his flat.

On my way back from university, I found a single dark blue (left) sock, possibly abandoned. I took it with me and I'm currently looking after it since it seems to have suffered from mistreatments. I may have to knit a bit this weekend to keep it alive and wearable. I already have many socks and cannot keep this one, so if you recognize this sock or wish to adopt it, please mail me and I'll send it back to you (you're lucky I
didn't call the SPA, Socks Protection Agency, for abandoning it!).

Color: dark blue
Type : left foot
Size: 44 (European size)
Wounds: needs a few stitches and knitting
Found in Brussels, Belgium
