Annette Vetter Adventure #6

Everyone's tired of winter ... and hoping the ground hog does not see his shadow...

     "We've got to alert the police," said Tim.
"Not so fast." A deep, husky voice called out to them from the shadows. B.J. and another, larger man stepped out and confronted Annette and Tim. The larger man had a black beard and wore a stocking hat. In his hand was a large switchblade which he thrust at them.
"She's the one got me into trouble," B.J. said in an agitated voice.
"Well, she's gonna be no trouble from now on," snarled the large man as he closed the distance between them.

The Valentines Dance (where the girls ask the boys) is coming up and Annette knows that Pete is expecting her to ask him, yet she wants to ask Penny's brother Tim instead.

Meanwhile, look out! -- livestock rustlers are in the area. Neighboring farmers are losing cattle, horses and even chickens! Also ...

Ruby's nightmares are growing worse, causing the Vetter family some concern. Stranger yet, her dreams seem to have this weird connection to a "Missing in Action" American pilot in Vietnam.

Annette is still enraptured with having a new brother and sister as she grows weary of an especially hard long winter in Wisconsin. Her infatuation for Tim Duncan has grown as her best friend Penny can no longer hide the fact that she and Annette's boyfriend Pete are hot for each other. But how can Annette, a mere sophomore, compete with all the more mature junior and senior girls at Ravensville High School who consider Tim a heart throb?
