, and now we had a bit of a crisis. The Person had to shuttle the Zimbabweans into town for an event and wouldn’t be home for hours.  Her family was off camping and I was 20 minutes away by car. Marshmallow’s rescue was not imminent.  The Person put out a strawberry, Marshmallow’s favorite treat. Then she cried and took […]
