Squirrel In The Kitty Condo

Kitties Mary Jane and Nikki have a condo that has a bed and a litter box but they very seldom go into it. One morning, Mary Jane says, "Someone is using my litter box!".

This is a very comfy bed.

The kitties are dumb not to use it, I love this bed.

I am sorry, I did not realize that this bed is for kitties only.

You won't see me, I am hiding at the corner.

OK, OK, I'll leave, I'll let the kitties have their bed back.

A little while later, the condo door opens and the squirrel says goodbye.

Morgan Hill Mushroom Mardi Gras: Food

The big mushroom balloon signals the namesake of the festival. This is the 32nd Mushroom Mardi Gras in Morgan Hill, CA.

Mushroom is very nutritious.

You can't avoid food in a festival named Mushroom Mardi Gras.

Betty is tempted by all the delicious looking food in the food court.

Betty's junk food fix: an order of fried artichokes and a lemonade.

Another food court that is not as crowded.
