I was a bit surprised that folks have forgotten what the legendary Monkey Wrench looks like. I guess I shouldn't be, they were long obsolete when I was a kid 45 years ago.

Believe it or not, new monkey (aka Ford) wrenches are still available. Ironically, they're made by Crescent, whose product made the monkey wrench obsolete!

Hey - the old monkey wrench has been immortalized by none other than Hank Williams Sr.

From "Howlin' At The Moon"

I rode my horse to town today and a gas pump we did pass. I pulled him up and I hollered "Whoa" and said, "Fill him up with gas".

The man picked up a monkey wrench and wham he changed my tune, You got me chasin' rabbits, spittin' out teeth and howlin' at the moon.

That brought back memories!

When we were teenagers, two cousins, my sister, and I did jam sessions with my sister on the piano, one cousin playing guitar, the other cousin playing concertina, and me on the fiddle (when nobody stopped me).

We actually made some 78 rpm records. One was "Howlin' At The Moon" with the guitarist cousin doing the vocal.

That sounds like a lot of fun Goose! Good memories. Howlin' at the Moon is one of my favorites. Actually, Old Hank Sr. didn't make any bad ones as far as I'm concerned.
