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.

I Don't Have A Clue

I was going through some old pictures the other day and I came across this one.  

The Bean, a cute baby Bean, involved in some sort of role playing game - giant mixing bowl on his head - perhaps a helmet and a yardstick that was probably a sword.  But, what's that behind him?  The Breadman wearing a giant mixing bowl helmet!  He looks rather confused, doesn't he?  

I have no idea what they were doing or how either of them came to have my mixing bowls on their heads.  But, I am SO happy that I happened to capture it on film.  What a couple of goofs!

Do you have a favorite funny photo?


  1. Hey - you taught them well, and they color coordinated the mixing bowls w/ their outfits!!

  2. I bet The Breadman would be THRILLED to know you posted that photo on the internets. :)

    Gotta love a Daddy who will wear a mixing bowl helmet to play with his kiddo. :D

  3. Breadman looks like he is going to a tryout for a DEVO music video.

  4. every photo of me is funny looking....oh, went back and reread that , it says like "funny haha",not funny looking.

    Would love to know if BM or Bean know what was up with that?

  5. Sing along with me: "Meet George Jetson!" Cute as a bug.


  6. I love this picture! So cute. :) Can't wait to see your finds from te big sale!
