Cactus Monday / Lemur

Ring tailed lemur feeding on prickly pear cactus.
Back from my trip to Chicago. Had a great time there. Shopped till I dropped and went to one of the last Oprah Winfrey Shows! Janet Jackson and Tylor Perry were her guests.
Today I will be out most of the day. I will pick my Mom up and together we will visit my friend Aulikki who is still in rehab after her hip surgery.
It starts to snow here again..................Please stop and give Spring a chance!!!!!!!
Happy Cactus Monday!
Visit Teri for more cactus fun!
