Every year on December 14 this National Day celebrations around the world recognize the unique characteristics of simians.
Monkey Day is an unofficial holiday celebrated internationally on December 14. While the holiday is mainly about monkeys, it also celebrates other non-human primates such as apes, tarsiers, and lemurs.
Monkeys live all over the world and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Their personalities and habits capture the attention of humans on many levels. These intelligent animals with opposable thumbs live in family groups, too.

My computer did a system upgrade when I opened it so it wasn’t available to use for about an hour.
We had a bagel w/cream cheese so April could take her morning medication and then I cooked breakfast (bacon, scrambled cheese-eggs and toast). Pat wrapped Scott’s birthday present and we met him and Dorian to get some food at 12:30.
We had a good visit with them over lunch. April and I shared one of their delicious cheeseburgers with fries. I made some pictures:
The window decorations made interesting shadows on the shades.
Scott said he was taking Dorian shopping to get food for him after lunch (he is on a diet restricted from what most of us eat). We told him to call us when they got back home and we would come for a visit so I could install his Apple TV.
We went back home and down for a nap. We watched the news when we got up and went to his place about 5 o’clock. I installed the Apple TV and showed him how to use it. We visited for a while and came back home to eat supper. I warmed some of the Tortilla Soup for our supper. We watched TV until bedtime.
