What is a monkeybox?

When I was a little girl, we had a pet monkey named Amanda. My Dad worked in the produce business, so each night he brought home that days culls in a big box - spotty cucumbers, pithy apples, limp celery, moldy oranges and the like. We called it a monkeybox. It was really just trash, but my Mom would take each piece of fruit and trim it, pare it and cut it up to make a beautiful fruit platter for Amanda. Even though it was deemed trash by one, it still had life left in it and was good for the purpose we needed it. That's how I live my life - thrifting, yard saling, looking for another's trash to be my treasure.

Back In The Saddle Again

DS is back in school after seven days off. I know he will be okay, but I am sure he will be tired when he comes home. I hope the teacher's all understand about his shouder and let him take care of himself. If not - MOM will fix 'em (the teacher's I mean!)!

Our family was saddened to hear of the death of Steve Irwin. My son has watched him for years and just loves him. We did the whole Crocodile Hunter party when he turned seven. He even has the whole Khaki Steve outfit. Steve was a great advocate for animals. I feel for his family as I know they were one very happy content family. Crikey! He'll be missed.

More TV chat - I'm so glad the summer daytime reruns are over. I keep an eye on "Regis and Kelly" and "The View" in the mornings. I'm intersted in seeing how the View will go with Rosie at the helm. Ought to make for some cat fights with Elizabeth as they are both VERY political. And, I'm not - but I love a good fight!

Tomorrow is DS's 11th birthday so I have lots to do to get ready for that. We postponed his party until 9-16. We are hoping that his arm will be better by then.

I've got thrift fever - but think I will stay home today. I've pulled soemthing in my back and I am kind of hunched ouver like Groucho Marx. Quite attractive!
