It's been quite a celebration in Buttercupland for the last ten days. Pepe Le Monkee and I share a birthday and there have been lots of celebrating. Pep has been asking for a car for his birthday gift and based on several episodes of monkey business, I vetoed his request for a car. I decided to start with something smaller and found this Build A Bear Workshop motorcycle on eBay. There's one happy monkey in New York City and so far, no furniture has been damaged.
Several people have filed complaints with the Buttercupland Department of Public Safety about the lack of a helmet and the lack of regulations for the use of a motorcycle by a monkey. I am searching for a helmet that will fit Pepe. I've found a (faux) leather jacket, but no helmet seems to be available. We tried aluminum foil -- which meets no safety guidelines -- but Pepe felt like he was a baked potato and that was quickly recycled.
My birthday was as much fun, but didn't involve the purchase of wheeled vehicles. In my next post I will share photographs of the celebration and my thoughts about turning yes, sixty-seven. I'm also planning to do a giveaway -- one of two this month -- so I hope you will be back again this week. We're going to keep the birthday fun going!
I'm thrilled/relieved/grateful to share my happy news about my MRI. I got an early morning phone message from my neurosurgeon, "There is no evidence of a tumor." Again, thanks for all of your prayers and good wishes!
I spent a lot of the morning clearing out pots and dishes I no longer use and followed this endeavor with a trip to the Salvation Army. Next task is shredding!
As ever, thanks for visiting and wishing you every happiness this Monday afternoon.
