And He's Off...

Monday at around 1pm, I said my final Bon Voyage to Monkey at the UPS Store. I was deeply saddened by his departure.


I brought a farewell committee from my office with me... Gary, Audra, Lauren and Nanci are all going to miss the little guy as much as I will, but we know how much joy he'll bring to everyone, so it's worth the heartache we feel.


Monkey was packed up by the UPS Lady and right before we said our final good-bye, Lauren said, "I sure hope he'll be able to breathe."

The UPS Lady put our minds at ease, "I wrapped him in bubble wrap, so if it gets bad in there, he can always suck a bubble."

See? Everyone he comes in contact with becomes a happier, funnier person.

Oh my oh my! This is so cool monkey! How would you like to travel to Walla Walla, Washington and spend some time with a real primatologist? You could meet Zebra Dooddle Doo (she's fom Siansburys) and William Wallace (he's a Siansbury's custom creation too. Wanna visit? How do we get on monkey's spring itinerary?
