Oh, it's no joke. Briang's computer took a dump on him but once he gets back online we'll have him give you a lineup of the different animals he's had over the years. It's quite the crazy list!

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

It's not a joke. I got my spider monkey, "Peppy" when I was 14 years old. He was a great pet but you can't believe how much it was like actually having a child. She wore a diaper and would sit on a rocking chair in the living room and rock while watching TV. It was a riot. I would bring it out in the back yard and it would climb our big maple tree, which had a honey be hive in it and it would go right to the hive and grab bees and eat them. It would shake her head as she got stung while eating them but would just grab more. The stings didn't bother her at all.The problem came when I turned 17 and had to chose between dating girls or staying home and playing with my monkey LOL! I was spending less and less time with it so when a nice lady that had loads of time for her, offered to buy it, well, it was the best thing to do for peppy and I sold her. My PC crashed and I'm on a borrowed one right now, so if I can remember my Photbucket pass word, I'll post a pic.

Ain't like going down to the pond, cetching bluegills and tommy cats!

Oh,I just saw the beginning of this thread that I already posted a pic. of Peppy. Kind of tugs at the old heart strings seeing her. And that's the pool that I jumped in after the skunk that I was de-scenting, sprayed me in the face LOL. AAH, Good times!!!!

Thanks a lot. I'm really proud of it. My corals grow like weeds.I just took out another add the other day in my local paper and I have 2 appointments to sell frags. My tank is now self sufficient. In the last 15 months, I have sold EXACTLY $1280.00 worth of frags and one of the people coming over this weekend already bought from me and told me that he wants about another $100.00 worth. So, with the money I got from my add last month, which got me my salt, new test kit, 2 coco worms and my sponge, with the left over money from that plus my sales this weekend, I will have enough for my new, "Wavepoint" T-5 fixture. I never thought that this hobbie could actually pay for it self.
