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.

TV News

Just in case any of you watch The D*ggars on N*neteen K*ds and Count*ing  - Tonight Michelle and the family go to her High School reunion - which is MY High School Reunion.  I didn't go - DADGUMIT - so I won't be on TV - YEA! But, it will be interesting to see - I mean how many people have their High School Reunion on National TV?  

My High School Yearbook - That's me on the top upper left and JB&M on the bottom right.  

Also, if you did watch it - please keep in mind that I look SO MUCH YOUNGER than anyone else and I am SO MUCH THINNER and I AM SO MUCH MORE SUCCESSFUL than anyone else. That is my story and I am sticking with it.  

*The film crew was at the thrift not long ago and I think all three of us made the camera multiple times even though we tried to avoid it......We'll see!  

Back tomorrow with tales of the Warehouse Sale!  


  1. Looks like M shares about her Bulimia. Interesting. Sorry you didn't make the reunion!

  2. Of course you're much younger than everyone else. You were a child genius!

  3. Should we ask for your autograph now? Who knows how much we can get for it on ebay in 10 years!! ;)

  4. Your a blogger rock star, which is way cooler in my book. Ol Jim bob went there too hu? Can't wait to see the warehouse goodies!
