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.

May 31st

Today is our Anniversary.

19 Years.

We "dated' a year before that. so, that's 20 years.

We were friends a year before that, so that makes 21 years.

And, I thought he was a complete creep for two years before that. So, that's 22 years. Nearly impossible since I am only 25. ha

Here's the whole sorrid story of me and The Creepy Guy

I'll be back this week with tales of a journey, the big Anniversary Day details and some Fab-O junk I scored in a hurried roadside stop.  (To which I am going to attempt to visit again in a minute, if I can persuade the Bredman to let me go.  I used to be able to get anything I wanted if I just pouted right.  I'll see if it still works after all these years.....)  Let the pouting begin!

**It does say HOUSE OF ILL REPUTE on the sign.  But, it was really just a Dance hall.  Honestly.  Mostly.  Uh, huh.  ;o)
