The Candy Man made the World look Good

The Candy Man made the World look good, especially for the residents and families at the Masonic Home in Union City. Who could pass up a chocolate kiss, especially when an adorable marionette with mini-tray circled the Masonic Home to Sammy Davis Jr's iconic hit "The Candy Man."

Dog Day Afternoon at Danville shopping center

The dogs had their day in the sun at a Danville shopping center. To gain admission to what was billed as "Yappy Hour," dog lovers brought their cherished pet(s) for doggie games on an astroturf lawn and doggie bowls filled with dog biscuits. A DJ played "You Ain't Nothing but a Hound Dog" and a caricaturist drew the lovely pet(s) with their proud dog owners. Celebrity Gems arranges caricaturists in Danville, Walnut Creek, San Francisco, and San Mateo.
