© 2013 Thousand Word Images by Dustin AbbottThe traitors have returned. They fly away in massive squadrons seeking warmer climes, leaving we fools to shiver through the winter. Here's a little surprise, though - they are back, and, heh, heh, heh...winter isn't over. I watched them paddle through the little channels of open water on this still mostly frozen pond. I can only image the goose version of cursing when they realize they returned from vacation just a little too soon.
