Look what I got today

I went to a rain barrel making workshop this morning and I got this super awesome rain barrel made for us to use here at Monkey Central. The event was organized by my friend and neighbor Shameless Domestic Hussy and it was held at the First Presbyterian Church in Elizabethton, which is pastored by my friend,the man most Christian ministers love to hate, John Shuck.

Hats off to Shameless, John, and the good folks at Boone Watershed Partnership! Hats off to my $35 rain barrel!

Nice barrel! Sorry I missed you. I had to attend a meeting all morning and into the afternoon. I hope the folks were nice to ya!

You made your own rain barrel? Fantastic!

It looks great as is, but for a small fee I can ship the Offspring down to your place to paint an octopus on it for you. She paints a pretty mean octopus rain barrel!

Thanks for your offer Barb. If that daughter of yours comes down here we may keep her.

Everyone I've met who is associated with your church has been nice John. Even Snad. ;o)

That's great! Are you able to use it right now? It's raining here. I hope it's raining there, too.

A great deal you got on that barrel! What's more fun than a barrel of Dr. Monkey's? We've got quite a few of rain barrels. Now all we need is more rain.

It was great fun! I was running around like a pregnant maniac, brandishing power tools and generally loving life. First Pres and Boone Watershed rule. You know it's true because people like Dr. Monkey and I sing their praises.
