Hey Monkey! You're lookin' right spiffy and ready to play! I'm sure you will have some stories to tell, even if they "ain't exactly real." ;-)

Hi Monkey!

It was so nice to meet you in Phoenix when Mary pulled you out of her bag! Especially your sweet little smile. And although I know you had a bit of stage fright you were so calm when she sat you front and center on the stage facing Leonard. It was delightful to see his expressions and to see Sharon's wonderful smile so I know you made them happy, even though the song isn't exactly a happy song. I am thrilled to see you were in San Diego! Perhaps you will even get to go to the concert in LA tonight. Hope you have found a nice home and everyone is good to you. Maybe I'll even get to see you again in Detroit! Who knows!

Take care little darlin',
Diana

What a wonderful, sweet monkey... who could resist. Certainly not Leonard... or Sharon.

Hey Fred, there you are :o !! I see you're in good hands :D . I told you your new masters would take good care of you. You get to travel in excellent company and just think of all you will get to see. You will be privy to the kinds of things we here can only dream about ;-) . Fred, keep practicing your violin and just maybe you will be allowed to play along with the excellent musicians who are around you. Behave, and tell the humans to keep their hands to themselves or you will make too much noise and disturb the Master. Enjoy your sojourn ;-) .

Loving regards,
Mary

(P.S. Bless your heart whomever took the picture of Fred and posted it here. I am truly deeply grateful. It was totally unexpected and a gift paid in kind.)

Good morning Fred,

What a nice surprise :D . Here I am just getting up and going to work and it looks like you may be just going to bed. Make sure you get enough rest to keep up with everyone else on the tour. You are looking pretty spiffy outside of the Nokia Theatre and I see you are still smiling! Have a wonderful time in the San Francisco area but just make sure you don't leave your heart there ;-) .

Hugs,
Diana

Someone should be taking bets down...

Who? Who is the member of the band that is doing this? (we can see a glimpse of a finger in the San Diego photo) Any guesses?
