Good Fences #72 - Monkey See, Monkey Do

 Hello & Welcome.  -  Summer is going by so quickly and while I haven't done anything like travel it's still been a busy one. - Some days I just don't get around to visiting every one's blogs (forgive me) but I try to make sure that I participate in Theresa's meme:
GOOD FENCES


So last week I was telling Coleen that we needed to find some more new fences to share and she started telling me about a fence she had spotted that had cave people or monkeys on it.  Which do you think it was? (Hint, it's in the title of the blog post).

Anyway I decided to see if she could remember where the fence was so we went for a little drive and sure enough she directed me right to it. 

It was pretty sunny outside so this first shot isn't the greatest but it shows off all of the fence so without further ado I present.....

Monkey See, Monkey Do!



This is a fun way to dress up a chain link fence for sure.  These monkeys are metal and seem to be having a great time.  Let's take a look at them a little bit closer.
 
 
I'm not exactly sure why the one monkey on the gate has a chain on it other then it seems to be chained to the fencing itself but none of the others were so I have no clue why they chain this fellow up.  Maybe he tried to escape!
 
 
I love the one on the swing eating the banana.  Aren't they fun!
 
 
 
Here's our little chained monkey up a bit closer.
 
 



He seems like a friendly chap.

Does this swinging monkey remind you of Cheetah from the Tarzan movies? I just found an article from 2011 (I know I'm behind the times) which said the Chimp from the Tarzan movies lived to be 80 years old!

These two female monkeys (notice the hair bows) seem to be doing some kind of a dance or else the one on the right has fleas!

Finally....

The fuzzy one on the left appears to be giving directions but the girl on the right (again the hair bow gives her away) seems to be a bit confused.

Maybe she's wondering if hanging around on a fence is more fun then a barrel of monkeys!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
There were people in the driveway talking while I was taking pictures,  I felt a bit nervous that they were going to wonder what on earth I was doing with a camera pointed at their house.  At any rate I snapped away and they didn't seem to care.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing this fun chain link fence all decked out with monkeys.  Coleen gets full credit for helping me find this one.

Come back next week to see the other fence we discovered right across the road from this place.  It's a fun one too.

  5. well, this is definitely a very different fence! Super interesting! When you look close, looks like someone took great time in cutting them out of metal.

  11. That's one of the best fences I have seen. So much fun! I have a friend who has this crazy fear of monkeys...she would be terrified.

  12. Love the imagination here, yours and theirs. I think this is the neatest fence I've ever seen or maybe I'm so tired of barbed wire out here in south Texas. Looking forward to next week to see what their neighbors came up with.

  13. Hi Ida now I have seen everything.

    You do fine unique fences.

    I enjoy them.

    My son was okay and family thank the Lord but a mess of fences to fix.

  17. LOL! Nice! Chain link is normally not that interesting in itself, but these monkeys are cool!

  18. Now this really is a one of a kind fence. Wonder what it is really fencing in besides those cute artsy monkeys.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Well, now, that is definitely something you don't run into very often.

    ReplyDelete
  20. What a great find! Never seen a fence with monkeys before!

    ReplyDelete
  21. This is wonderful!!!! I think Coleen needs a camera and her own blog! I think she has a future. Sounds like she done notices things.

    ReplyDelete
  22. This was a fun and whimsical fence. Chain link is usually so boring, what a way to give it some pizzaz.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Now, that's a first. Very unique find.

    ReplyDelete

  32. The monkey fence is unique and a fence I found very interesting. You did a fabulous job of presenting this unusual "find."

    ReplyDelete
  33. I think the folk understood why you pointed your camera :) It is inviting to do so. I for one, loved to see it :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. That's a creative way to decorate a chain link fence!

    ReplyDelete
  35. A very creative idea to dress up the fence with metal monkeys. I too will be taking pictures if I see one like this.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I would avoid that yard...I don't like monkeys! lol

    ReplyDelete
  37. I wouldn't be surprised if those people are used to others stopping by to take pictures. Those cute monkey shapes are just begging for attention :) great shots Ida!

    ReplyDelete
  38. What a boring fence that would be without the monkeys! I love that people think to dress up something so ordinary. Good eye, Coleen!

    ReplyDelete
  39. These monkeys are such fun. Someone has a lively imagination to place all the monkeys all over the fence!

    ReplyDelete
  40. These are some happy, jolly monkeys on a fence.
    At first, I couldn't see any tails and I thought may be they were silverbacks, but then I looked closely to notice a good looking tail.
    Very nice find!
    Never seen anything like this.
    Have a Great Weekend, Ida!
    Peace :)

  42. That is a fun and interesting fence! It is strange though--I saw the hairbows as horns...but your view is a much more pleasant (And probably the correct) interpretation.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
