NOTE TO SELF: Don't judge a police log by the first posts. I was all set to say a boring week then it snowed. I do wonder what out of towners find in the woods to take their cars in there and need to be pulled out. Like the dog, I would run away but then I thought where will my next P.B.&J come from.
