Friday Fun Facts and Photos – Monkeys Friends with Donkeys and Goats and Dogs?

Last week I finished my fourth book, the Crumb Bunch.

The Crumb Bunch

I am so happy to say that it is on the way to the printers, but in the process of finalization I completely forgot to post a Friday Fun Fact and Photo. I spent the wee hours of the morning preparing the next four weeks of Friday Fun Facts and Photos so as not to miss one in the coming weeks. I found myself giggling and smiling as I looked through my old photos. I hope they bring a smile to your face today as well!

There is a saying that flies around the Islands when something strange or surreal happens, Only In St Kitts and Nevis.

There is even a facebook page dedicated to Only in St Kitts (and Nevis). Here are some moments captured!

Oliver the beloved vervet monkey and star in the Living the Beach Life Series became ill and had to come home to our house a few years back.
