The Shadow Of The Thin Man On The Dark Morning Of New Year's Eve Eve Wondering About Monkeys
If this morning is the next to last morning of 2011 that would make this the morning of New Year's Eve eve.
It is 48 degrees, currently, in the outer world at my location.
Yesterday I believe the air in the outer world at my location was being heated to the low 60s. I may test if going for a dip in the pool is doable this morning.
Changing the subject from one primate to another.
Yesterday I was shocked to learn that, up til December 24, Cheetah the Chimpanzee from the Johnny Weissmuller Tarzan movies was still alive, til he died, at 80 years old on Christmas Eve.
This morning I was shocked, shocked I tell you, to learn that the chimp who died a week ago today was likely not the famous movie star. Though those who reported Cheetah's passing seemed to believe they'd been taking care of the famous movie monkey.
Is a chimpanzee a monkey? After I typed the last word in the above sentence I realized I did not know if the word "monkey" applies to all primate, or if "monkey" is a specific specie of primate.
I think I will go find something else to wonder about now and forget about monkeys.
