My babies! My BABIES! They're GONE!!!! Somebody took my babies!!
Fred and Bessie are GONE!!! I got up this morning and went to make the coffee, feed the dogs, put away last night's cleaned pots and pans, and give F&B their morning pat on the head, and they weren't in their usual spot. I know what you're all thinking - they're someplace different every time I turn around. Occasionally, yes. And those are the times I take pictures and post. But as adventuresome as they are, they really are creatures of habit in the morning, waiting on the cutting board, enjoying a pat on the head.
This morning they aren't there. I've been all over the house, high and low, woke everyone, and I can't find them anywhere! There are hoof prints all OVER the butter. Little tracks which lead to the carpet in the dining room (which would explain why I found the dogs licking the carpet when I got up), but they're nowhere else to be found. The other ceramic critters were all quietly sleeping in their usual places (I've acquired quite a menagerie since F&B have arrived). But NO BOVINES.
I'm heading over to Formica Fields to post about this. Maybe someone can help me out. Maybe they'll show up when they get hungry, like Lou the Loud tends to. Maybe they're trapped in the closet or something. Whatever it is, I have to find them. They're never just GONE. Any suggestions would be appreciated. And if I find them, and feel like a complete idiot (happens a lot - "Oh, that was THERE? Doh!"), I'll be updating. Thank y'all!
Until I write again ...
