Many people Around Here look forward to the weekly Michigan Picture from Babs. Except in February. We do not look forward to the picture in February. This week she wrote:
It’s probably obvious that Miss Sadie, the Cowboy and I are not in Key West. We did, however, go to the beach. It was the first time in weeks we’d been down there (although I suspect Miss Sadie of some unauthorized visits).

They were not being mulish. They were trapped.
I gave it some thought and decided to rescue them. Spoiler alert: I did not fall through the rotten ice and drown. Instead I went off to Traverse City with Louan on an adventure involving a Raven, a Fat Black Pussycat and a Moose. But that’s a post for another time.
