Ooooo, Hontoni????

Went with a friend to Mitsuwa (a Japanese grocery store/ food court in Chicago burbs) for lunch before Batman last weekend, and was delighted at how authentic everything was! We only ate in the food court, and checked out the bakery, because I knew that if I went through the groceries that would be the end of me. I MUST go back with a cooler and stock up on tasty things!

Pic from Dad

Here's a pic my dad sent me. He went outside to check out the approaching rain clouds. This bobcat was hanging out with a fresh bird kill in its mouth. He went in for his camera, and found that the bobcat had decided to park it in his yard and just eat-up right there. All that was left was the tail-feathers and a foot. That's very thorough eating, Bobcat!!
