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.

Word Verification

This was the Word Verification I got while trying to comment on a blog earlier tonight.
It just seems wrong.....


  1. LOL I have had some that were funny but not this funny! I took my word verification off my blog. I thought I would see how it goes. If I get some strange messages then I'll put it back on. I just having to do that step when I leave a message. Some blogs have a hard to read one on there and if I have to try to many times I give up and forget about leaving the message.


  2. that was funny! What are the chances?

  3. You know I blogroll all my peeps. I clicked on the title to your blog instead of the heading so I could leave a comment, but it was "flucked" up, so now I am here ON your blog leaving a non-flucked up comment.

  4. Hi Shara,
    I linked over from Vintage Rescue Squad. Your blog is flucking great! Looks like we collect some of the same goodies. Love how you highlight your collections on your sidebar. Stop by my blog for a visit sometime. Thanks!
