November 24th All Our Uncles Are Monkeys Day

Well depending on whether you are a follower of Darwin or not, you may or may not believe in evolution. The discovery of “Lucy” by Donald Johanson and Tom Gray in 1971 goes a long way to proving our ancestors may have been monkeys. Of course, they may not be as well. In all reality we may never know. “Lucy” was an Australopithecus Afarenisis, or an ape. If some of the scientists believe we may be related to apes, I guess it is possible that some of our Uncles are apes, but if our Uncles are apes then doesn’t that mean the rest of us are apes too!?! (Or did our Aunts just have strange taste in men?) So, do you think you are a monkey? (And yes I know monkeys and apes are not the same thing)

How to celebrate – Go see “Lucy”. Build a tree house. Start a family tree.
