The mother of all monkey battles broke out today.
There were monkeys standing on tip toes upon every rooftop for miles around ....
They dipped, bobbed and barked at a strange troop that dared to overstep the invisible line between two territories.
As I carved in the courtyard I was aware of monkey missiles flying over my head. From house top to garage to tree top and back again, howling with rage. Mothers held their babies close as the aliens approached.
All in my household were armed with water pistols in case the enemy troop tried to harm "our" troop.
I had to smile ..... we all have our territories.
