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 ...

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!

Recap of Emm Gryner and Dayna...

Friday May 27 was an extremely special night here at Cheeky Monkey. Our Red Carpet Stage was graced by not one amazing singer/songwriter, but TWO. Three if you count the guest singer!! First up was Dayna Manning who is originally from Stratford, but she now lives in B.C. Dayna has recorded three albums of beautifully crafted songs the most recent being “Folkyo” which you can purchase here at Cheeky Monkey. Her talent as a guitar player is matched by her singing voice creating heartfelt warm songs to be enjoyed over and over again. Her expertise at the finger picking style of playing guitar is as difficult as it sounds, however she does it with ease. It was a true pleasure to have the chance to meet her and hear her play. We hope she will stop in again and perform next time she ...
