Lets bring back: monkeys as pets


Alice Marshall's mom at 15 has her hands full. Alice writes: "She is holding her little sister and, inexplicably, a monkey. It was taken in around 1961 in Hastings in southern England. I love the hair, the bag, the fur style skirt but especially the fluffy wool jumper."

I love her "yeah, I'm holding a monkey, whats the big deal?" expression. My mom also had a pet monkey for a few months in the 60's but she got tired of it--turns out they're high maintenance-- and gave it to a local fraternity house. I'm sure they took excellent care of it.

In other pet news... I had a baby [kitten]. Okay it's adopted, but that doesn't make it any less mine. Pictures here!
