the duck wave

Once,a long long time ago, in a land far far away, I knew someone with Daffy Duck on his car, and a mantra of "like water off a duck's back".  Something like that.

We had ducks at least once before but it was a long long time ago.  They didn't last long.  We were hoping we could train them to go to the creek and come back but they went down stream in the creek instead.  So we'll not be doing that again.

But things come in waves, and the duck wave has come again.  Daughter #1who usually takes care of all baby birds is "taming" them, and she's really good at that.  She once trained a chicken to ride with her on her bicycle.   We have some plans, some intentions, but as with all things, we'll have to see how it goes. 

I know there are people who do everything perfectly.  We are certainly not those people.  And I know people who fail at everything, and next year do the same damn thing over again.  We are not those people either.  We surf, riding the waves.  So we'll have to see how it goes.  I'm hoping it goes the way of really great duck eggs!  And maybe roast duck.   It has been a long long time since we have been able to afford a duck.
