Chew and screw (that too!) is what they do. About a billion ducks arrived two days ago, blocking the sun with their dark wings. They stayed for a couple of days eating my cracked corn, enjoying a little copulation (yes, even in frigid water several months shy of breeding season), and quacking loudly before the crack of dawn then flew on their way without even a farewell, thank-you, or enjoy the snow!
I didn’t recognize any of these ducks. Yeah, sure, you think they all look alike but to me there’s subtle differences. A glimmer of a smile here, a twinkle in the eyes there, a turn of a feather–each of my ducks had his, and her, own personality. But, no, these ducks were new. Even Franny was MIA. Limpy too.
Nothing but new ducks, more and more and more then bye, bye, bye. Not a feather remains. Gone! Chew and screw, that’s my crew. Blessed be. :}
