Danger In the Jungle


The man that strode through the sandy path, had the look of  a Salty Old Seadog, His tanned, rugged face made his white hair appear to glow in the jungle sunlight. The branches dragged at his bare shoulders as the Jungle growth seemed to reach for him and the white sugar sand slowed his steps.. suddenly.he heard high pitched giggling and turned to see a giant bean stalk rising up through the jungle, and at the top a scrawny and oh so ugly face staring at him.

As he stared upward at the face, he realized there was a monkey staring at him from the bottom of the stalk. As they stared at each other the Monkey said...

Can you tell me where the waterfall is?????

The man turned and ran, afraid to say NO, he did not know where the waterfall was because he realized the only weapon he had was the pair of blue plastic shoes his wife made him carry for her...





How she did it....FOR THOSE WHO CARE.... if you don't care how I did it skip this part...

 to create this picture, I went to This POST from 2013 using the tablet, grabbed Bob on a path at the beach, played with the app SuperPhoto. Emailed that creation to myself, went to the desk top,


Took the tablet creation to PicMonkey and made it a double, then cloned Bob out, found a beanstalk on line, took it to photoshop and deleted the background,  added it to the creation and put the monkey and the little ugly guy on from PicMonkey selection and there you have it. Plus the only danger in this jungle story is dying of boredom....

Loved this, had me smiling from ear to ear, the cute story and the photo. Thanks Sandra! The foxes are still hanging around. I read that they will for another two to three weeks and as they get older they will move on.

Oh my gosh what a lot of work! I would not be able to keep it all together! But it is Super! I love it! Did you write the story? Very appropriate and scary! I love the oh so white sand. And I am just glad that monkey is SMILING! So I think he will be saved after all.

No worries...the sea dog needs to be informed those blue slippers are magical. And very protective. Why the smell would chase away ALL monkeys.

LOVED the narration. And your creative mind and hands [don't let him forget how your hands work wonders!] Enjoyed the nuance of it all today.
