An Apple a Day…

Mongo has had his issues with apples.  Last fall he learned that it is not always safe to pick apples up from the ground, since one can never be sure if a mean-spirited critter, like a yellow jacket, has taken up residence in the apple, and might object to becoming part of Mongo’s snack.  But in the interest of continuing education…
