Something fun - spring is here
Every year since 2 years before the last presidential election - we've had 2 ducks show up at our house. We live about 4 blocks from the lake.
And there are tons of mallard ducks that populate that lake.
Well, we had 2 show up, male and female. The female had a "bum" leg - twisted- which makes her have a severe limp. Additionally, mallards usually mate for life. Since it was pre-election, I named them Bill and Hillary (lame duck - Bill the outgoing president -- ducks have bills -- you get the picture)...
So bill and hillary have been showing up every year for a few years, and this weekend -- gone since October --- they showed up again -- Bill and Hillary.
I know her by her limp. And they are precious to us. They could fly into any backyard pool in our area they want to, but they come to us. My three large monster dogs don't even bother them. They consider them part of the family. I am just tickled that they came back -- they even let us hand feed them, and Hillary has been known to lay more than a few eggs in our back yard under the rose bushes.
Spring is here!
