stop monkeying around

K has a working bee to do monkey fence maintenance. This involves pulling down creepers, cutting back grass and weeds and generally walking up and down the fence admiring their handiwork.

This morning we were driving along the mountain hugging road to get to the scrummy bakery and we encountered monkeys on the road eating soy beans by the branch.

K was all proud and told us to watch as they would be thwarted by the monkey fence when they tried to escape back to the forest.

So we dutifully watched as he revved the engine to startle them.

And scamper they did.

They all bolted straight for the fence.

I was a bit worried we'd be left trying to explain accidental simian garrotting to the girls.

I needn't have worried.

The monkeys barely even altered their pace as they lifted the net and ran under it.

K was crestfallen.

I was disbelieving.

The monkey fence is not anchored??

Whose monkeying around?

The monkeys have been round longer than the farmers I think, they too have some tricks up their sleeves. I guess hubby and the gang will be busy again next weekend :(

Sounds like back to the drawing board for the monkey fence. Bummer. Poor K. He must have been crushed it didn't work as planned. I'm sure he will build a better one, and a few modifications here and there.... anyway fingers crossed from us over here. ; )

Very very smart monkeys. Must out smart those monkey's!!! ; ) ; )
