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.

Spring Done Sprung

Yesterday it was 85 degrees - HOT! Tomorrow morning we have a cold front moving in and the wind chills will be near 30 degrees. Uh, I thought Spring was here? One last blast from Old Man Winter. Thought I would share some pictures of all the spring color here. I thought everyone was having Spring, but lots of blogs still show snow and bare trees.

Here's another (Heart) picture that I took on Saturday. These are tree roots in the Battlefield Park. I have a knack for finding hearts in clouds, rocks and roots.

Be forewarned, the next post will feature photos of DS picking boogers out of the GIGANTIC nose. Read at your own risk!
