Man Proposes Duck Disposes

A  L  O  H  A !
Lots of people and businesses
here in Marin county
put out water dishes for 
the many dogs walking
about with their people.  
That was our intention,
but this mallard couple 
has decided that our 
front lawn is their spa.
Who are we to complain?
They were here first. And
we enjoy their antics.

in any language.”

does not matter, if 
only you are hatched 
from a swan's egg.”

No Duck Pun

that I care!

I love this post. Thank you my friend :)

Oh Cloudia - how lovely! I guess a little water to swim in is good, if there's not more than that. :) They know a kind family when they see one.

Hello, Cloudia. These are awesome shots. Lucky ducky! I think they need a bigger water bowl.
Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

Ducks claim squatters' rights! So cute!

That one where the duck is literally sitting in the pan is hilarious

The ducks make for pretty good company!

Cloudia said...

I love sharing these with you. One of my favorite posts that wrote itself. Thanks Friends!

But we are awaiting the duck pun with bated breath... Why did you deprive us, Cloudia? Cute post!!

The duck goes ducky
it is plain to see
and any kind of water
is game for that matter

More duckies. Yay! I didn't see my mallard pal today. Maybe he went wherever his lady friend had gone.
