Hidden Gibbons

Hidden Gibbons

Rather than focus on the logical thing: snow, great sheets of it out every window, drifts and oceans and dumps of it, I thought I'd go diversionary.

This is from the kids' inherited collection of "Magic, The Gathering" cards. Although they don't have a clue how to play the game, and don't seem to have the patience to learn, they do occasionally enjoy checking out the pictures on the cards.

By now, the kids are familiar with my gibbon obsession. That's how this one came to my attention.

It's cute isn't it? And how true is this?

"When these apes want something, it's a matter of gibbon take."

Be safe out there!

Who knew that gibbons were Magic worthy creatures. I've never seen this card and Hubs has a lot of them.

A gibbon obsession?

If ever there were a launching pad for a novel, that's it.

Now that you mention it.... Actually, it IS sort of a launching pad. On of my characters is obsessed with rescuing a signing gibbon from a run-down New England zoo :)
