  1. It looks like they will have to wait until summer to get out…wait a minute, it is summer! Now what? I do hope they get rescued.

    • I’m sure they get rescued but I surely hope it will take another couple of weeks. This would give them time to think and talk about what is happening right in front of their ignorant eyes. Thank you weather-gods for giving me a big smile on my face. Wishing all readers and Robert a happy and healthy 2014.
