Since I've retired Mondays are generally much more pleasant than they were when I was working. But this Monday has been rainy, (mostly) sunless and a lot colder than the last week. Despite getting more than enough sleep I wasn't my most perky self and of course when I turn on the news it seems even grayer. I'm stepping back from reality and inviting everyone to Buttercupland for Monkey Monday. I can't promise a change in the world, but I hope you'll enjoy the visit and leave with a smile.
I found these three wise guys -- in the best sense -- at the Time Warner Center in Columbus Circle. It's my local (very fancy) mall. It's only three blocks from my gym and I'm a regular at the Whole Foods in the basement.
This cute little monkey was part of the group at Monkey Island.
I found this Easter collection while walking in the East Village. It's not often I find a gorilla (in clothes!) in an Easter window, but I knew he would be just right for Monkey Monday.
My favorite Monkee, Pepe, will not be appearing today, as he has his own Monkey Monday post next week, which he is very excited about. Of course, Pepe thinks every day is his day.
Just looking at my monkey friends has pepped me up, and I hope if you needed a little cheer, this visit has provided it.
As ever, thanks for visiting and take good care!
