Miss Millie runs this here ranch. She's pretty as a speckled, ripe banana, but don't let her good looks fool ya...she knows how to keep the ranch hands in line. |
We work hard all week, play hard on Saturday night and go to church on Sunday. Miss Millie's pretty strict about that! Of course, as purdy as she looks all dressed up in her Sunday-go-to-Meetin' clothes, there ain't a monkey in the world that wouldn't follow her anywhere.
Oh, pardon me, I clean forgot to introduce myself. My name's Dusty, I'm the second in command on the ranch and no, I ain't married to Miss Millie, but don't think I ain't thought about it!
Things here on the ranch are kinda laid back, so feel free to wander about, meet the ranch hands and git to know some of the many monkeys that come and go around here. Miss Millie's got a big heart and she's known for takin' in strays, so you never know who yer gonna come across.
Some of the monkeys are lookin' for a new home, so be sure to check out the Get a Monkey page.
Cletus Dean Baker (AKA "Tumbleweed")
Arrives at Sock Monkey Ranch
The sound of the cattle rolling over the hills into Sock Monkey Ranch was unmistakable. That sound meant that Tumbleweed was back!
Cletus Dean Baker is a ramblin' man. That's how he got his nickname Tumbleweed. Cletus' never lets his hat hang on the same nail too long and there is certainly no danger of moss growin' under his feet.
He's also quite a storyteller...tall tales mostly. You can read some of them at Tumbleweeds Tall Tales.
