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.
