haven't you always wanted a mon-KEE?

Tarz has gone back to his family now...but that's just down the road. We miss him, but we can still visit. Really, he belongs in the jungle... i don't think we would ever get a monkey for ourselves - it was too sad to see him in captivity and imagine what life would be like for him in freedom. I'm not an animal lover, but i confess... he is pretty cute. His only downfall was that he ruined my little fig tree (in which we let him frolic freely without a diaper during the day), and he used to bite when we put his diaper on at night. Well, I guess, he didn't ruin my tree, but it's pretty spindly-looking now after he peeled all the bark back looking for little bugs. :) Monkeys do belong in the jungle.

I hope you are doing well,
