He's looking really good, she's looking a tad skinny after her winter journey south. He's being very attentive to her, so I'm giving them lots of time alone. I served them a wonderful bread appetizer that they really seemed to enjoy. Unfortunatley, every time I look at them, all I can think of is DUCK FAT!!!!!!!

Yup a mating pair of ducks that return to our backyard every year.
You're a good writer! I wasn't sure where it was going at first. That would be so neat! I love wildlife, but we have very little woods around us.

Well, we haven't seen them since yesterday. I think they've gone off to nest.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

I share your excitement, Loprraine, I feel the same way when the purple martins come thru in late Feb. and stay, raise families, and then leave in June. Successive generations for nearly 20 years have rented with us.
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.
