Cheeky Charlie Goes to The...

Anne of Green Gables is one book that Cheeky Charlie has not gotten around to reading, yet he knows it is a great Canadian novel that depicts the life of a young orphan girl in the late 1800's in Prince Edward Island. To see the book be told as a  play at our local Imperial Theatre  by our city's very own Theatre Sarnia was a very exciting experience for Cheeky Charlie. The set design was very clever changing from the orphanage to the home of the Cuthbert family home, Green Gables, complete with garden outside the screen door.   The actor's were all superb, especially the actress who played Anne (with an E).   Cheeky Charlie is sorry he can't remember her name.  He did a nice deed of giving his program to someone who didn't have one.  Anyway, she was very impressive and believable in her role as were all the others ...

Winning Photo by Pierre Houle

On Saturday, Nov. 19, we were witness to a very considerate act of kindness. Pierre Houle's photograph "Young Horsewoman" was the Grand Prize Winner in the 7th Annual Sarnia Photographic Club Photo Contest. The picture is of a young girl standing by her Belgian horse, Sara, after winning a 3rd Place ribbon for Youth Showmanship at the Wyoming Fair. At the very moment the picture was taken, the young woman was being praised for her performance by one of the judges. The look of pride and happiness on her face is so genuine. Between her beaming face and the fall lighting, the photo has the quality of a painting on canvas rather then a digital photo. Many people have stop into Cheeky Monkey to view all the fabulous entries, including the young ladies grandparents, uncle and other relatives. Through them, it was arranged for Pierre to meet his winning subject in person ...

Mike Blackmore –...

We at Cheeky Monkey have great admiration and affection for Mike Blackmore. We have named him our favourite Renaissance Man because he has so many talents. Besides being a talented woodworker by day, he is also a gifted musician and artist. New he can add inventor to his list of abilities. In this video he is sharing his newest creation. A camera/recorder that gives a unique perspective to a musician as he plays his guitar. It is a prototype, but who knows were this idea will take Mike and his music! Way to go Mike - keep dreaming and creating!
