There are at least 7 of the trunk monkey commercials.

My favorite is the one where the motorist hits a tree, and trunk monkey is about to " revive" him ..... with a difibulater!

Hey Tim, those are awesome. That is Clapper for sure. I think my favorite is when Clapper opens a can of whoop ### on that space alien. I taught him to do that you know. You may remember how I feel about them space demons. I have a zero tolerance policy for them. You get them before they get you.

I like the last one.

I may have found Clapper....

He is working as a trunk monkey for Suburban Auto Group in Sandy or.

I'm typing on my phone, so I cant post a link .... just google "trunk monkey" 

 

The little Censored would make a great trunk monkey. He's got the attitude for it...

Bakster Dang! I had to really think about that one, Greg. Whoa, catching you off-guard is challenging. I'm pretty proud of myself.

Lol. Well done sir. Kudos!

 

Greg
Bakster Hey--don't be too concerned. I have a new project in mind that should start a whole new journey of fun. I can't start that one until I end this one. Whew, that's a relief.

Cheers!

Do you mean Micky Dolenz?

Dang! I had to really think about that one, Greg. It took me a minute. I get it now. He was a former Monkeys singer. Phew. I havn't had my morning coffee yet. LOL

Greg
I like your graphics. I envy you guys who can come up with that stuff. Wish I'd get off my lazy duff and learn graphics, I have all the software.

You know, it's kind of funny. I learned graphics by my interest in photoshopping gag images. In short, my monkeying around is paying off for this project! LOL. 

Greg
Don't rush to the finish line. I don't know where I'll go to be silly and have a laugh or two when it's over.

I guess... here is something I can post. I had originally planned to order an engraved plate that I'd attach to the base. With recent changes to the plan--that idea went out the window too. For the new plan...they don't make them as narrow as I need. That leaves me with designing something on my own. Under consideration are a few graphics I came up with, shown below.

Or maybe it's a small moon. Wink

As Icarus travels to Ape Planet the astronauts made a short stop to stretch their legs.

 

 

Work continues on the Icarus. She is greedy for my attention and she is not ready to end this long running build. Progress is slow, but moving.

We all seem to get these calls.  I actually have heard a "grunt" on 2 occasions.

Probably Clapper.

Hey! I got one of them calls this morning. Dang it Clapper! It said press 2 to block further calls and then I heard a grunt.

Ok the last part is not true but the rest was.

Gam, great work. Those are a hoot! Who'd a thunk GC has family and scammers at that

Good catch.

I keep getting called about my 'car warranty'. 

I'm sure Clapper is behind this...

 

Probably trying to drum up work for his cousin Sam Clapper who he claimed is a mechanic...

 

I think they're all wrapped up in the Monkey Mob...

I'm praying the Icarus won't end up as a lawn dart. 

Amen brotha. That makes the two of us.

This model has fought  me hard since I finished the interior. I feel like our model God has turned against me. I am dangling from a string and he says, "YOU THINK YOU ARE ALMOST DONE? HA! THIS PROJECT WILL NOT END UNTIL I SAY SO." 

Maybe Clapper has something to do with this. It would explain why he ran and that he is on the lam. Tongue Tied

Let me reiterate here. If I finish this thing you will hear a shout so loud that it will echoe around the world. People will say, "Hey! That was BAKSTER! He finished ICARUS!" Wink

What a sad statement. The trials and tribulations of Steve's Icarus build. 

Ok. Done complaining. Back to it.

I darned near choked on my coffee when I saw this pic from Cliff....didn't even have to read the text to crack up.

Too busy laughing to read your progress report, Steve. I'll get to it. :)

 

 

 

Sorry Greg about your coffee. I hope you're not going to ask me to come mop up your kitchen... Embarrassed

 

On the contrary, any one who can make me laugh out loud before my morning coffee more likely deserves an award.

Well Clapper alway liked a good jam session and that baboon has some big booty so it's a good trap for him. 

Good luck with the decals. I know what you mean when the blasted things don't want to stick. I'm praying the Icarus won't end up as a lawn dart.

An alert was issued Clapper was found. It turns out, it was just a bigfoot. The search continues...

 

 

Yesterday, I repaired the damaged decals. I think I held my breath the entire time. It will be a miracle if the work survives until I mount it. As it is, a flag fell off in the process of re-applying the stripes. Fortunately, I was able to reapply with no discernable difference. I used a little white glue to help it stick. These decals absolutely suck. I also had a setback with the base. You won't believe it. I didn't. More on that another time. But--a path remains for the win.

An old Saturday Night Live skit comes to mind when I work on this. Dan Akroyd plays as Nixon and he says to Kissinger (Belushi) "Henry, get down on your knees and pray with me." That seems appropriate about now. Pray with me, Henry. Pray with me. Black Eye

Sorry guys... 

Clapper escaped... 

 

He fashioned this cunning decoy out of one of my old socks. After three days of it not moving I became a bit worried and shook it causing it to fall off the sofa. He did mention something about 'hitchhiking his way west', so you guys should keep a look-out for him.

  

 

Wow

That Clapper is a smart Ape. Do you ever wonder if he is the prodigy that starts the Ape Rebellion? I do. I wonder that. And now--he is wandering the countryside unsupervised. Who knows what trouble he might start.

We might want to send out a BOLO for any clapping apes.

I think Clapper is at Gams house because I couldn't stand the constant clapping. Gam is more patient than I am.

Gam? Is Clapper by you? Maybe he can weigh in on this.

Banananana? Bleeech! Ditto plantains.

We may have to call on Clapper to be the last word on this major point of contention.
