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.

Things have been completely stressful around here lately. Too lighten the mood and have a laugh, we terrorize our poor cat.
Groucho?  Or just a Grouch?

He's a pretty princess.

I'll be back when I'm less stressed.  Or if we terrorize the cat some more.


  1. Poor Kitty! I hear you on STRESS!!!! I wish I could have a do over for this year already. Bad economy, bad choices, rough times. Things will get better. I will pray for less stress for you and yours ;)

  2. Don't be surprised if you wake up one morning to find the cat standing over you. I think that cat is planning his revenge. I would sleep with one eye open for a while. LOL

  3. How funny...What an awesome, laidback cat! Hang in there, it will get better.

  4. I'm calling Anti-Cruelty! Just kidding, because you could totally turn me in too! Mimi Lucy loves to be dressed up, and when our daughter was little, she would push Mimi around in a stroller for hours. But I agree with Leslie. You put a DRESS on HIM. Be afraid. Be verrry afraid!

  5. LOL. That is the funniest thing I've ever seen. The look in his eyes in the first picture is saying "Laugh it up. I will kill you in your sleep."
