Critter Corner: All our critters are doing very well. We are so happy that they all like quail food, as that is what they can't get enough of. We do like watching all the critters passing through, they are so cute with their funny little habits. Our indoor critters (cats) also enjoy watching.
July 4 parade in Nipomo: What a wonderful parade. Each year it gets better and better. Soon they will be giving Macy's competition. Lots of hard work went into making it as good as it was.

It was great to hear the tribute to our military that our President gave, coming from a long line of military people and being an Army brat, it was great to see our military honored.
