Wordle 326

Monkeys chop-chop relish undoing cupboard strap;

Their sting done, then  moon-bottomed as away they fly —

Blown farewell kisses then emerge derisively, mayhap,

Ere shimmy from the crime, no justice sword nearby!


We came home yesterday to find the local monkey troop had raided the house. Again. They were in no particular hurry to leave when I strolled in. What annoyed me most is that they had polished off all that was left of my gift package of chocolates received at a luncheon on Thursday!

At least these are far better creatures than the invaders we passed the aftermath of on 7th, just a few houses up the road from J’s school. These had two cars, one with the active housebreakers, which drove in once they had dealt with the gate. The other waited outside, and the occupant stepped out calmly and killed the security company respondent as soon as he left his vehicle, before they all departed at speed. It makes horrifying video viewing.

  1. How appalling. It must be really hard to live with such happenings going on around you.


  2. Barb says:

    It’s eiter monkey or ants that are annoying visitors. Hopefully the latter won’t visit now.


  3. guyportman says:

    The monkeys are certainly preferable to those other invaders.


  4. Hoop daardie stoute apies se magies pyn so effens van die gesteelde sjokolade. Ek het ook nie op die skakel geklik nie, die enigste manier waarop ek nog gelukkig in hierdie land kan leef, is deur volslae vermyding en ontkenning.


  5. horrible 😦 give me the monkeys any day


  6. toutparmoi says:

    This is so sad. What nasty, nasty people. They make the little chocolate thieves look saintly.


  7. Stephanie Haahjem says:

    Monkeys are doing what comes naturally-but “humans” have no excuse!


  8. Must agree with disperser once again ( getting monotonous), and I suppose the murderers will get clean away, or if caught perhaps a slap on the wrist and told not to do it again.


  9. disperser says:

    Well, I can’t very well “like” this . . . and I didn’t click on the link; sorry.
