Friday Fun Fact and Photo – Oliver’s Visit from a Veterinarian

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. We took care of him with the help of my twin sister Robin who is a veterinarian. He was such a good patient. To this day Oliver greets my sister with tenderness and love.

During Oliver’s stay he cuddled up to one of our children’s stuffed animals, a hedgehog. To see video footage click here.

Friday Fun Fact and Video – Never Before Seen Footage of Lion Paw and Oliver Playing

It’s not just a book trailer. It is a piece of me, filled with the passion I have for what I do!

The long hours of editing to find just the right moments to transition to a photo or slow down a video clip so that it fits with the tempo of the music.

Placing the right words, the right photos, the right video to match the lyrics and messages of the song and the book.

Watching my furry friends play and listening to one of my all time favorite songs made the editing process enjoyable.

Identifying the song for the video was immediate. The song Different Colours – One People by Lucky Dube encompasses strong messages of understanding and love for one another which are also strong messages seen throughout the first book in the Living the Beach Life Series. A perfect mix of like mindedness in the creative world. Thank you for allowing me to use the song INgrooves.

The creative whims of a writer, an animal lover, a music lover.

Friday Fun Fact and Photo- Caribbean Living – Sharing a Computer With A Monkey?

My Tuesday Trivia posts will be back next week. As the Island grows, we are experiencing a bit of growing pains. They translate to not having internet or electricity at certain times for various reasons beyond my control.

A large truck got caught on our lines outside of our home, not once, twice. Gone went the electricity and gone went the internet. Not one, but yes, two storms came our way within a week’s time. Prepping for Hurricane Season really should happen in June, but we were hopeful the storms would stay at bay until September as they have the past few years. Preparing and organizing for those storms took precedence over my weekly posts. I am back now and share with you a Friday Fun Fact and Photo featuring Oliver the Vervet Monkey from the Living the Beach Life Series.

FUN FACT AND PHOTOS

Two Sailors anchor in Cockleshell Bay and head to shore early am to catch some Wi-Fi. What they didn’t know is that they would also be hanging out with Oliver the Vervet Monkey from Living the Beach Life Series. Renee Petrillo a fellow author shared her computer with Oliver and then shared her photos capturing the moment with me. Now I share them with you!
