Pictures of monkeys and the trunk monkey video

So here's the gist of today's posting.

Monkeys:  Pictures of monkeys, talk about monkeys, and monkey business.  (Well, maybe not monkey business exactly...)

When we get back, we will have some great pictures we took, and hopefully, (as one of our sponsors has requested), we'll be able to get some "pictures of cute monkeys"). 

As we don't have any of our own monkey pictures YET, we're sharing THESE pictures of monkeys with you instead.

When it comes to the monkeys we're going to see in Africa, it's most likely that we'll see baboons and spider monkeys.  Apparently, baboons don't really mind at all having humans around, but spider monkeys are generally skittish.  We hope we'll see a full range, but we'll be happy to see any monkeys that see fit to grace us with their presence!

And for the people who don't think that baboons are monkeys...well, we can have the debate later.  (Actually, feel free to leave us your comments below.) But for now, here are some pictures of monkeys from all over.

"Your picture can't bother me.
