When you’ve got an itch you just can’t scratch, it’s like having a monkey on your back, and that’s no monkey business. What you really need is a back-up – like a helpful pal who can get those hard-to-reach places. The monkey said, “If you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours,” so it will be the gnome’s turn next! That’s back-to-back friendship. The coin is from Samoa – you know that if you give a monkey a banana, he’ll always want Samoa. The monkey has his thinking cap on, but I’ll wager he’s thinking about that orange for a snack. But back to the statue – just before we finished, we threw a monkey wrench into it!
