Exit133 is about Tacoma

Thanks, Ms. Monkey - UPDATED

Thanks Ms. Monkey - From Jillian

We came home the other day to discover this letter in our mailbox. I think it's for you, Ms. Monkey.

It is the season for Monkeyshines. It's a time to find creative ways to pay it forward, to generate good karma, to think about ways to bring more joy into the lives of those around us...

We also hear saying thank you might bring good fortune and inspire the monkeys. Do you have a story to tell? Do you want to draw a picture?

Talk to us at tips@exit133.com.

p.s. If you need some inspiration or background, just look back at Monkeyshines 2015.

p.p.s. Oh, and if you want to help make the magic happen, the monkeys are still accepting donations and support. It's not too late ... yet.

I’m getting the impression that they’re releasing them over multiple days, and that they’ve already started. When in doubt, they’ve said there’s still ones from past years that no one has found, so there’s some well hidden ones still out there year round.

That’s all part of the fun. No one other than the organizers knows when the Monkeyshines will go out.

Searched all thru South Park and along the Water Flume Trail down to the Asian Pacific Cultural Center but no monkey did shine for me.  I found a very nice round piece of granite from some long ago glacier spill but it was just a tease from afar….don’t forget us in the South oh Ms. Monkey…

Have been out looking for 2 days and have found nothing. I did however speak to a lovely lady with 3 girls out looking too. They were having a fun time looking in trees, climbing trees and but hadn’t found anything either. The thing is that we were outside enjoying the adventure and getting exercise at the same time. It’s easy to spot fellow monkeyshiners as we’re off the path searching bushes, trees , bodies of water. We all want the prize but looking is half the fun. Thanks for the hunt Ms Monkeyshiners and all the people involved.

Dashing out to look,
Maybe in a brook.
And if we see a ball,
We’ll think we’ve made a haul,
A good luck charm might do-
Or leaving monkeys too!
We hope this year will bring
A special kind of thing!
Thank you hiders! Tacoma Rocks!
