Last night I swung by my favorite spot looking over Lake and Mount Chocorua in Tamworth, NH when I saw some gathering clouds.  Once again I was rewarded with another amazing scene.

I love the extra layer of dimension the large cloud mass provides above the mountain and reflecting on the lake.  It was a warm and humid night and those clouds later produced some mighty powerful thunderstorms.

MONKSWIZI have no good reason to invest in high-end swizzle sticks, or swizzle sticks in general for that matter.  However, I am going to try to find a good reason very quickly as I have fallen in love with the Monkey and Palm Swizzle Stick from Patrick Mavros.

About the Monkey and Palm Swizzle Stick from Patrick Mavros: “The lively grey vervet monkey is found throughout the subcontinent. A charming and sociable animal, it has an appealing, velvety-black face and expressive white brows. This monkey has stolen some palm wine and gotten drunk. He swivels dizzily round and round the stick brandishing a coconut and mixing your cocktail at the same time!”

I love the whole monkey motif – were he wearing a fez there would be no question – I would have three in my collection already.  I have to say I love these guys and many of Patrick Mavros’ other extraordinary silver sculptures. 

I also love the ‘See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil’ set of monkey spoons.
