I'm always on the lookout for monkey pictures, but they are even harder to find than pretty-in-pink pictures. I was happy to come upon this collection during my walks in Lower Manhattan during jury duty. I tried to cover as much territory as possible and I especially enjoyed my walks through Tribeca, the area below Canal Street. I worked there thirty years ago when it was composed of decaying office buildings, warehouses and yes, the wholesale egg district. Now it is the most expensive and fashionable neighborhood in Manhattan and signs of residential life abound.
I found this fun toy store with lots of goodies, but there was one stuffed animal in particular, on the bottom left, who grabbed my heart.
Scooter is the star of today's Monkey Monday.
I'm a fan of black and white pictures and I'm happy to share this version of Scooter, too. He looks spiffy and so much fun in both versions.
I was pleased to see that my favorite diner of 1985 was still in existence and the exterior is unchanged. It is now surrounded by very expensive condos.
I'm glad to have happy pictures to post on a rainy Monday in January. I can't promise to have monkey pictures every Monday, but I'm on the lookout.
I had a quiet at-home day today. I probably watched way too much television, but I didn't snack and put my focus on drinking water. I've slacked off in water drinking and I was determined once jury duty was over I would make a concerted effort to drink more water. Tomorrow I am determined to get to the gym. That's another place where I find myself slacking off. Not tomorrow!
As ever, thanks for visiting. Take care and keep warm and cozy.
