These monkeys are "standing in the wings," waiting to see if they are needed tomorrow for a big project undertaken by our DKG chapter. The canine, Grace, is not part of the deal, however she DOES like to smell them and pose when they are being photographed.
I wish I had kept track of how many of these monkeys I've made in my life. The first two were made in about 1968, for our oldest children, Connie and Steven. I also made one for Kevin and Corey, when they were grown. No telling HOW many I have made for others. It must be around 30, I'm guessing. Usually, I enjoy making them, but I think I need a break from them now for awhile.
