Little Rascal Jackson

Little Rascal Jackson

While I was doing the dishes I was entertained by some of the chimps doing their funny antics. Then I heard a noise, and of course looked up to see what it was. Well, that little rascal Jackson was swinging back and forth on the fire hose, trying to stir up some kind of excitement among the other chimps. It looked like they all ignored him for a few seconds when all of a sudden little Emma came flying down from the high bed and smacked him hard on top of the head and of course, she was off in a flash. Jackson, on the other hand, just sat there all stunned like he had just been hit by a thunderbolt :). After sitting for a second trying to figure out what just happened, he got up and went over to where Patti was sitting. He wasn’t done yet, picked up a ball and again was going back and forth on another fire hose with one hand while holding onto the ball with the other and speeding up the tempo on the hose:). His aim was to throw the ball at Patti’s head, I think. It didn’t take long before poor Patti had the misfortune of having the ball hit her. Of course he looked very satisfied, but Patti didn’t think it was funny at all and started chasing him.

I wish I could be a fly on the wall 24-7 to observe all the mischievous things they do, and the hilarious hijinks they sometimes pull on each other.
