cheering up a sad austrian monkey

In Don Bull’s book, he pictures a monkey corkscrew which he refers to as "sad Austrian monkey." A very similar depressed primate arrived at the house today via phil-the-mail-carrier.

So, the lovely and I took it upon ourselves to cheer the chimp up, by allowing him to assist in the opening of a bottle of wine.

He now seems decidedly happier having been given a task to do!!!
