Monkey in the House
Danny began to holler loudly, "Ooooh, Oooh, Claudia come here quick!!!" I could hear some panic/shock and thought, "Oh, no, is there a snake in the house!!"....since we had been chasing a skink in the house all morning and still haven't gotten him out. Thankfully, it was not a snake but a very big monkey had come into the kitchen and was helping himself to the bananas and oranges. He is really huge...more the size of a baboon...and we had seen him outside and had been warned to keep our doors closed but we suppose we did not make it shut tightly and he just came in for a visit and some "goodies." It was really a bit frightening...even for Danny...especially the element of surprise to see him come into the living room with his fruit and Danny was not aware he was in the house. So Danny got a bigger scare than I did because he came in on him but he was chasing him out by the time his panic call came to me. We are being very much more cautious to make sure the doors click shut...but we are not so sure that he did not open the back door and come in...so we might have to resort to even more locking. Anyway, he fled to our gate and perched on it and ate his orange!!
