Hi Tom Wopat
This was forwarded to me from our tropical pal Eve (who got it from her friend here in NYC):

Him: Is this Creative Artists agency?

Me: No, it's me

Him: What number is this?

That story about the monkeys
This was a robot news item a few weeks back, and I saved it because it makes me smile.
(Yes, smile! Dammit! I can smile! Call off your troops!)
I just love the last sentence....

Escaped monkey found in old folks' home
A monkey that escaped from a circus was found at a old people's home being fed bananas by residents.

Police in Bremen received a call from Zirkus Adolfo in the evening saying a rhesus monkey called Mogly had gone missing.

They began a search, and soon heard a monkey was stealing fruit and vegetables at a nearby old people's home.

According to a police statement, they arrived to find the place "buzzing with excitement".

"A group of elderly ladies was delightedly feeding little Mogly bananas and other treats," a spokesman said.

The monkey allowed itself to be put on a leash and led back home by a circus tamer.

"And some of the ladies probably took a little longer to fall asleep that night," the police spokesman said.

god that's sweet

the monkey story was very sweet, but I was already thinking "sweet" about the church haikus and Tom.- good pacing w. that.
