General Purpose Duck

A L O H A From Honolulu!

  I can sit on a boat or a river bank
and problems that seemed
insurmountable just don’t
seem that important anymore.
Van Heflin

Feral Rouen Duck
A heavyweight breed of domesticated duck.
Rouens are raised primarily for meat,
exhibition, or as general purpose ducks.
The breed originated in France
sometime before the 19th century.

Every moment is the most 
important moment of your life. 
No future time is better than 
now to let down 
your guard and love.

The bird's looking at Pixie: "what are you looking at?"

Mike said...

I've never heard of a general purpose duck before. 😄

LOVE Pixie's chat with the birdie! (I would mistake every brownish duck in Hawaii as the nene duck.) Linda in Kansas

Teresa said...

Pixie is asking the finch to define "general purpose duck" or "general purpose bird" for that matter. What is the purpose of ducks and birds in the grand scheme of things? They aren't good for air travel, and apparently they can't be fed in that big Hawaiian park.

I can sit on a boat and problems that seemed insurmountable just don’t seem that important anymore, bailing water does!

Sandee said...

Love all the quotes, but the first one is spot on. I feel that way every time we're on our boat.

Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. Scritches to Pixie. ♥

Pixie is having kind thoughts about that sweet bird.

I love seeing Pixie! Ours are watching the squirrels, and banging into the window trying to get them!

Bill said...

Nice seeing Pixie's wee friend stopping by for a visit.

Michelle said...

I love Wendell Berry. He is a great author. Pixie has a new friend :)

I don't know that I would want to travel with a cat, but I definitely like a cat where I'm at! Beautiful photos - the warmth and sunshine - I'm ready for that!

Aritha said...

What a wonderful photo series. The duck caught my attention. It looks very similar to the female ducks of the wild duck (Anas platyrhynchos) in the Netherlands. Who knows, they might be related. Right now, the male ducks here are fighting over a female. They make a lot of noise. Thanks again for your beautiful photos, and I also love the quotes.

I'm lucky to have a great travel partner. We're two peas in a pod. Great quotes!
