Happy Monkey’s Day, 2016

Recently we observed a national holiday.

We give delicious food items to our kin, and share a happy day of lounging about.

That’s right – it’s Monkey’s Day! (Which I totally made up. There’s no such thing. Unless you are Sugar’s cousin in South Africa, who lives next to a nature preserve near Durban.)

Happy monkey pictures are from SugarCousin LaRoy. These are vervet monkeys. They love love love visiting every day. The whole troop comes! The patriarch is Big Guy, who has been visiting for so many years that he comes into the garden and waits for bananas and peanuts.


Some days a little pool action is needed.

I’m sure I squealed when I saw the baby.

Man’s work is from sun to sun,

Monkey’s work is never done.
