LB's at it again! While it was snowy and freezing here in Michigan, LB went to sunny, warm Key West, Florida with Miss Marianne! LB must stand for Lucky Bear! There are lots of fun things to see in Key West — Lighthouses, Libraries, Post Offices, Fish, Butterflies and Cats! And you can eat lots of Key Lime Pie! One of the neatest things LB and Marianne did is they went to the most southern point of the whole United States and got their picture taken. You can almost see Cuba from there! Key West is also where Ernest Hemingway lived. Ernest Hemingway is an author who wrote books for grown ups. Some of his books take place in Michigan, because he lived here for awhile too. Then he moved to Key West and ate lots of pie and owned lots of cats. Make sure you check out all the pictures from LB's trip on Flickr! It sure sounds like he had fun! Until next time…
