  • Thanks so much for posting this! I remember this like it was yesterday! As I recall, this was not the first time a monkey escaped in the neighborhood. Good times!

  • I lived next to Franklin school and remember this well. I had been climbing a tree in the schoolyard and was stung on the head by a wasp. I was in the house with an icepack on my head when I saw a monkey in the tree right outside my window. I ran to tell my mother and she thought I was having an hallucination from the sting. I finally convinced her to come look and sure enough, there was a monkey in our tree!
