FINGER MONKEYS

The finger monkey is the tiniest living primate in the world. It's so small that it can hold on to your finger. This cute little primate hugs and grips on to your finger so tight that it pulls your heartstrings and you wish you could take it home with you. Finger monkeys are, as a matter of fact, pygmy marmosets. They are also known by the names "pocket monkey"and "tiny lion". These primates belong to the family Callitrichidae, species Cebuella and genus C. pygmaea. They are native to rain-forests of Brazil , Peru , Bolivia , Ecuador and Colombia

These came to me from a good friend in Ireland (Thank you, Lynn), and I trust you will find them as adorable as I have.




























































































Oh, that's punny!

I wondered why the baseball kept getting bigger. Then it hit me.

A sign on the lawn at a drug rehab center said: 'Keep off the Grass.'

In a democracy it's your vote that counts. In feudalism it's your count that votes.

If you jumped off the bridge in Paris, you'd be in Seine .
