I am IN LOVE with monkeys. My whole life I have been in love with monkeys.
I am looking for Monkgomery Monkey. He came out around ’86 and he was roughly 17″ long, tan, wore a tie, and had a puppet hole you put your hand in to squeeze. When you squeezed him he had a voice box that would say different things. I have been able to find a lot about his friend Bingo Bear, but can’t find Monkgomery.
As a child Monkgomery was my BEST friend. (I swear, when I was really little I used to talk about marrying him!). When I had my daughter six years ago I went looking for him in the attic. I was twenty when my mother finally put him up there, and I was so happy to have a reason to take him down! There he was, perfect, waiting for Izzy to be old enought to know the story of her mommy’s first love.
Then the unthinkable – hurricane Katrina. Everything was lost or destroyed. After my house and my photographs Monkgomery monkey is one of the things I miss the most!
