I did tell these trusting souls to say their prayers before getting into my gondola. Luckily the boat didn’t capsize and I got them safely to the Square to meet our friends who have all decked out splendidly for the festival.
However, when there were too many of us to fit into the small boat that I rented, we had to cajoule the nice man with the bigger gondola to ferry us all to the venue. After all, I could really steer with my costume and headgear on. If I had, all of us would have ended up IN the Canal before the photo was taken.
This is me trying out the masks made for me by Pyewacket’s mom before I left home. Which do you like?
This is Charlie and me

My sissy Momo-dog and Pinot decided to join us at the last minute. Isn't Pinot just too cute in constume? Momo was being the responsible big sister and looked after him the whole time they were there. This was, after all, his first time away at a big carnival.
This is a group shot taken by Karl in front of our apartment. The others have gone on ahead.

Do you like my costumes? Visit Charlie, she has some splendid ones.
Oh my gosh, who do I see here? My beautiful cousin Charlotte!
Hey, Charly, did you tell your SMS that you were coming here. We don't want her to start a cathunt and mobilize the entire Cat Blogosphere over your disappearance again!
