Monkey Monday Meets Curious George

Curious George and Elmo get together for a musical interlude. 

It's not often that we get a chance to interview one of our literary favorites. But we've got a Monkey Monday treat in Buttercupland today. I was walking through Grand Central Station last week and saw one of my all-time literary favorites, Curious George, visiting with his friend, Elmo. George -- or C.G. as he's know to friends -- graciously answered a few questions for his Monkey Monday fans. Thanks, C.G.!

Buttercup: C.G., it's a treat to meet you. I've been a fan for over sixty years. You're looking good. 

C.G.: Thanks, Buttercup. I'm feeling good. I love to have fun and that, and a little mischief, keep me lively. 

Buttercup: CG, what are some of your favorite ways to have fun?

C.G. I like to ride my bike, fly kites and I love bananas. Most of all I like to spend time with friends. Of course, the Man with the Yellow Hat is top of the list, but I like making music with Elmo, and visiting with Madeline and Babar. We're all old friends.  

Buttercup: Thanks, C.G. for making time for Buttercup. You're one of our favorites. 

Spending time with Curious George is a treat. What other literary figures, monkey or not, would you like to meet? Pardon the inadvertent rhyme, but the words just fell into place. 

We had another glorious late summer/early fall day. Besides a nice walk to the library, I spent some time straightening up my apartment and pondered this age-old question. How can one person in three small rooms make have so much mess? But I cleaned the kitchen, took out newspapers and decluttered a drawer. My goal is to declutter one dresser drawer -- there are about a dozen and some are small -- each day. This should make real headway by the beginning of October.  

As always, thanks for visiting and have a beautiful week.

How exciting to see Curious George! He was quite the favorite with our daughters when they were young! Our granddaughter loved Clifford, the Big Red Dog!

I love George! My son has a whole family of Curious Georges--however, "George" has been through alot--heart surgery with the boy, this and that's..as a matter of fact, I got a well deserved hug from George today. There is nothing like Curious George! Even for a 47 yr old and a 17 yr old! Thanks for the smiles, Buttercup...Blessings

What a fun post! I just adore Curious George! You're doing well with your de-cluttering. It's a lot of work, especially when you don't have lots of space to spread out. So keep up the good work.

Dear Carol, I'd so like to meet Nan, who is a character in "Little Men" by Louisa May Alcott. That book was my favorite when I was young. Peace.

Well that was fun. I like Curious George he seems like such a fun monkey. I'd like to meet up with Tigger from Winnie the Pooh. He's so lively.

Very cute post.
I think the Disney characters
Belle, Cinderella, Ariel and
Snow White would be fun to meet.
