In 2004, we celebrated the year of the Monkey. Canada issued its 8th sheet in the series.
The Monkey is the 9th sign in the zodiac cycle.
It's truly one of the finest sheets and stamps that was issued. Canadian post did a great job, surly not a 'monkey business' ...
For believers :
The Monkey is the most versatile sign of the Chinese zodiac. Such people are often inventors, plotters, entertainers and the creative geniuses behind anything ingenious, including mischief. They have natural quick-wittedness which enables them to understand what is happening and then make a right decision. Even during a conversation person born in this year is aware of what is going on around him/her, and then make a mental note of who said what and store it away for future reference. In general, with their agile minds and multiple talents, monkey type of people can master any subject. They are reliable and host people so that any secret is safe in their hands. These people are also honest in their dealings. Monkey people are very good at problem-solving. Wherever you are, whoever you may be, if you've got a problem pick up the phone and dial-a-Monkey. Monkeys know how to listen closely and work out solutions at the same time.
