Maybe Al could stick it beside his pond ?

Oh Stephen,

How about it, Al?

Well, I was just asked by a colleague at coffee, "where's your monkey?" when it was mentioned to him I play concertina. "Why a monkey" says I? "I dunno, just seems to go together" says he. I scratched myself and said ooh-ooh.

Careful, there, Mark. Helen doesn't want to hire you as a concertina player, she wants to hire you as the monkey.

Essentially the same thing, only even more awkwardly stated.

I'm good to go that way too!...Although I've more often been called a baboon and worse when at 6:00 in the a.m. awaking my teenage children for breakfast with a rousing selection of reels on my concertina.

By the way, I have a great green felt vest and my great grandfather's red Shriner's fez. Now if I can just get that tassel spinning while playing...there are the beginnings of an act here!

I just came across this image of a one-man-band melodeon player with monkey, let's see if the new software will let me add it is an attachment :

No such bloomin' luck !
