Make Way for Ducklings

A month or so ago, two ducks came to live in our swimming pool. They stayed for about three days. Every day we would open the arcadia door and spend a joyful 15 or 20 minutes tossing them pieces of bread. We were hoping that they would stay and have some ducklings. They decided to move on though and we figured they must have headed to a cooler place to raise a family.

However, last week our neighbor got irrigation. When we went outside, we saw that "our" ducks were over swimming in his front yard. When Mr. & Mrs. Mallard saw us, they came right over, knowing that we're always good for a free meal. We ran for the bread and had a great time feeding them.

No ducklings in sight though.

I always loved feeding ducks when I was a kid.
