A Chinese Monkey Message on Dragon Boat Festival Day?

Sink or Swim?-)
Shark Week in the Year of the Monkey
Dragon Boat Festival ... Today?
When I entered my kitchen last Monday morning I noticed another mysterious puddle of water just to the side of my lucky bamboo plant .. again.
This had been baffling me for the last few mornings, as I couldn't work out how this water appeared to be somehow running out of a plant pot which had a solid saucer under it and ending up a few inches away from it when I knew I wasn't overfilling the pot with water.
And I couldn't work out why the water had a machine oil like smell when I mopped the bench with a paper towel.  
Turns out it was leaking slowly out of my 'Big Banana' swimming money souvenir which I had bought from Coffs Harbour on my 2016 road-trip in the Year of the Monkey.   
Made in China?-)
I was born in the Year of the Dragon, the same year as
Russell Crowe was, which is another synch, because as I'm writing this post up and looking for a link to Coffs Harbour I see this latest news story about Russell trying to get a movie studio built in 
Coffs Harbour:-)
Big boom for the Big Banana?!
Well that was an unexpected synch, which fits in quite well to this post:-)
The glue joining the plastic together must have dissolved enough to let the water slowly drip out of the bottom of my cheap Chinese souvenir and onto the bench below.  
Sink or Swim?-)
The irony was that I had planned at the start of this year to travel down to Coffs Harbour to see the Sharks play the Gold Coast Titans, but lack of money and Covid restrictions made me change my mind and stay home in Queensland and watch the game on TV.
Tell God your plans as they say?
Dates with Destiny?
Shark Week in the Year of the Monkey?
The Year I bought that monkey at the Big Banana in Coffs Harbour I had driven down to Sydney twice to see the Sharks beat the
North Queensland Cowboys, including the semi-final played on my birthday -
My Happiest Birthday Ever
The funny thing is that the Sharks are playing the
North Queensland Cowboys again this week:-)
I'm hoping for another blue massacre up there on Friday:-)
And another new set of southern Towns villains:-) 
I had bought tickets earlier this year to see the Sharks play the Cowboys at the Sunshine Coast, but the game got moved to Sydney at the last minute because of a Covid scare up here in Queensland:-(
Anyway, I decided to try and save the monkey out of the snow globe as a keepsake still, and put a pick axe through the plastic to fish the monkey out.
But the monkey moved and I chopped its ear and arm off accidentally.
So I threw the whole lot out and decided to put my Tamworth snow globe in its place on the kitchen shelf.
There is No Denying That the Universe Has a Dark Sense of Humour When It Comes to Some Gray Areas in the Arenas of Art and Life
Then I noticed that snow globe had lost half the water that was in it from when I bought it in 2016.
You can lead a horse to water, but ...
Scully Park, Tamworth, 21st August, 2021?!
I'm not sure if this is a sign I should book my tickets and accommodation for the game down in Tamworth in August, or stay home and watch it on TV, as well:-)
Maybe I should make a weekend of it and take my hoodie, as well?
What's the Point of Poinciana (song)?
I guess you could say that 2021 has been a bit of a bulls#it year for me so far;-)
What do ya reckon, tell God my plans, or what?-)
My souvenir Tamworth shot glass:-)
